Blink-182 announced that they have left Interscope Records.  Guitarist Tom DeLonge made the announcement on Facebook and Twitter.  His message was, "Freedom!! Blink as of today, is now an independent Artist!!!!!"  He included a picture of Mel Gibson in Braveheart.

The band only released their last album, Neighborhoods, on Interscope.  Prior to that, they were signed to Geffen Records.

The newly independent Blink-182 plans on working on a new album soon, but also has said that it will be a little while before they release new material.
