Blink-182 punk-rocker Mark Hoppus shot fans a quick album update via Facebook last night (6/21), promising the new album — at long last — is nearly wrapped.

“Mark Hoppus here,” wrote the bass player and vocalist. “I’m very excited. We’re getting to the point of the album where we talk about mixers and finishing up the songs.”

The new-school punk trio will deliver the tracks to their label July 31, “so it will be coming out during the tour.”

“The most recent batch of songs are some of the best of the entire record,” he added. “Very happy it’s all coming together.”

Hoppus also announced he’s the latest celebrity to get on Tumblr, launching his own profile on the microblogging platform. The page, sporting the moniker “Mark Hoppus’ Super Awesome Tumblr,” features random photos and videos from Hoppus’ personal collection.
