Something’s happening in the world of Blink-182.

The “All the Small Things” rockers have deleted every post on their Instagram and have also cleared their website of all content except for a landing page featuring graphics of yellow construction tape and the band’s rabbit mascot.

If you scroll to the bottom of the site, you’ll find the words, “Hard at work! Check back soon.”

The digital wipe has fans hoping that new Blink-182 music is in the works. The group’s most recent song is the 2020 pandemic-themed single “Quarantine,” which followed their 2019 album, Nine.

Since then, the Blink members have been dealing with a lot in their personal lives: Bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus has been continuing to recover from his 2021 cancer battle, while drummer Travis Barker was hospitalized earlier this year with pancreatitis.

There’s also the question of who will be playing guitar in Blink going forward. Since 2015, that role belonged to Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba, who joined the band in place of founding member Tom DeLonge. However, rumors have persisted that DeLonge would be reuniting with Blink, and even Skiba commented that “Your guess is as good as mine” when it comes to his current status in the group.

In response to the rumors, Hoppus proclaimed that Blink had “nothing to announce.” In an interview People published in August, he shared that he’s “open to whatever the next phase of Blink is.”
