Blink-182 have actually been doing simply positive since parting methods with Tom DeLonge. With Matt Skiba of their ranks, they’re topping competition payments like Warped Tour and Outdoors Lands, lining up a tour with Lil Wayne, dropping new music like “Blame It on My Youth”, and sitting alongside Superman as one of the in style passwords.
DeLonge, in the meantime, is off doing his personal issues like relaunching Angels & Airwaves and on the lookout for aliens. Although he appears loads content material to be exploring these different avenues, it seems to be like he hasn’t given up on Blink totally.
Talking with Kerrang!, DeLonge stated he understands followers’ want to see him rejoin the pop punk band that made him well-known. “I get it – belief me, I like blink and it’s given me the whole lot in my life,” he stated. “And, , I plan on doing it sooner or later.” He went on to say any such reunion would nonetheless be a methods off, including, “However proper now there’s simply no method – I’ve method an excessive amount of occurring as a result of Angels & Airwaves is part of To The Stars, and that’s why it really works.”

(To The Stars is DeLonge’s UFO analysis group, in addition to a manufacturing home for a variety of his initiatives. It’s additionally notorious for piling up large deficits.)
One has to marvel if Skiba, Mark Hoppus, and Travis Barker are conscious of these plans. The unique trio parted methods in lower than amicable vogue again in 2015, with DeLonge unceremoniously bailing on deliberate recording classes and live performance commitments. It appears the musicians have principally mended their bridges, nonetheless, and there have been some current rumors that DeLonge would rejoin the group for his or her Las Vegas residency. That murmuring turned out to be baseless, however as long as there isn’t any acrimony between everybody, it’s laborious to completely rule out a Blink-182 reunion.
