Blink-182 won't record their next album in a studio.

The 'All the Small Things' hitmakers are hoping to work on their seventh record in an unconventional setting where they can spend a lot of time together and isolate themselves, similar to when they rented a San Diego house to work on their untitled 2003 LP.

Singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge said: "I'm not totally sure how it's going to work but the goal is to find an area or an environment that's different and not just a normal studio to be together as were architect the songs and inspire each other in ways that we did back in that timeframe.

"I think if we can pull off those few things we'll be in really really good shape.

"We've always done what we liked, and on the Untitled record there was a lot of debate where we thought our fans wouldn't even like it, but I think we succeeded by sticking to what we wanted to do, and it turned out to be the one that the fans like the most."

As well as working on a new record, Tom is also excited for fans to finally be able to see their behind-the-scenes documentary.

Asked if it will ever come out, he told Gigwise: "Yeah. I'm excited about getting that footage out. I just think it's just incomplete, but it's great footage and we will definitely see it come to fruition somehow."
