It’s been several months since anyone has heard anything from Blink-182’s camp and in a way we’re happy about that since it means all the inner band turmoil has slightly subsided.
In a recent interview with Billboard that was mostly about Mark Hoppus and his experience scoring a film for the first time, the topic of the band recording new music was brought up. While there wasn’t much information given about the topic of Blink, there were two sentences at the end of the article that gave hope to fans waiting for new music.
“In the meantime, Hoppus continues with Blink-182. He said the threesome — with Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba replacing guitarist Tom DeLonge — will head back into the studio in August.”
In a fitting time frame, August 2015 will mark a year since Blink-182, featuring Tom DeLonge, performed together for an audience at Reading and Leeds in the United Kingdom.
On the upside, it seems that many fans are welcoming to Skiba. The Alkaline Trio frontman officially joined the group back in March when they performed a warm-up gig at The Roxy in Los Angeles before performing at drummer Travis Barker’s Musink Tattoo Convention and Music Festival in Orange County the weekend after.
