THE WEB-CAM NEVER SLEEPS,
Santa Monica, California, February 10, 2003 - For fans of blink-182, the ultimate peep show has arrived. The MCA band will be switching on a live web cam in the studio where blink-182 is currently recording a new album, and will make available still-cam, live broadcasts, and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage 24 hours a day. Fans may click on to www.blink182.com to register and access the site.
Blink-182's web cam allows fans to watch in real time the making of the new album right from the beginning. The camera will move around the San Diego studio space as blink-182 works with longtime producer Jerry Finn.
Look for the red "ON AIR" sign, because that’s when it’s all happening live. Fans are encouraged to check back often since no one knows in advance when the web cam lens will be switched on. The website also posts video clips of the days events, and fans will be able to ask the band questions as the album progresses, as well as offer feedback on the site's comment boards.
In other fabulous blink news, the band's ace drummer Travis Barker has teamed up with DC Shoes to premiere his own shoe model, the Alias Remix. It's the first shoe from DC's Remix Series, and hits shops sometime in June. Impatient and/or barefoot fans can take advantage of an early internet-only offering. Orders must be in by February 28.

The band's last album, TAKE OFF YOUR PANTS AND JACKET, has sold more than 3 million copies to date, with no signs of slowing down. It followed THE MARK TOM AND TRAVIS SHOW (The Enema Strikes Back), a 20-track collection of live versions of classic blink 182 hits. Their previous album ENEMA OF THE STATE was certified quintuple-platinum, while their major-label debut album DUDE RANCH (1997) set the stage for their current worldwide mega-success.
