Mark Hoppus, the bassist and singer for Blink-182, clarified any ambiguity that arose after Tom DeLonge posted a photo of his former band on Instagram earlier in the week.
After numerous news sources hinted about a Blink-182 reunion, Hoppus confirmed yesterday on his Dischord page is unable to provide any new information. There isn’t a statement. Today marks Blink-182’s 30th anniversary!
When and if blink has an announcement, you will hear it here or from the official blink-182 outlets, Hoppus continued. not teasing listen to the radio for a big announcement Tom tagged Mark in a picture taken twenty years ago.
The artist added that although though Blink-182 doesn’t presently have any tour dates planned, the group will tour once more, and we’ll announce it as soon as it’s booked and finalized.
Blink-182’s co-founder DeLonge and Hoppus left the band in 2015, saying he wanted to change the world for his children and everyone else’s. Shortly after, Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trios took over as the band’s lead guitarist and has since been on tour. DeLonge has performed and recorded music as a member of the band Angels and Airwaves, whose most recent album, Lifeforms, was released in 2021.
DeLonge stated to Rolling Stone in 2019 that he and his former bandmates still have a great deal of love and respect for one another and that they would undoubtedly play together again in the future.
He said, “We all love and care about one other.” We don’t always agree on everything. People are aware of the disparities in our paintings, I believe. I enjoy observing their development and current activities. I believe people can distinguish between what I’m doing and Angels and Airwaves when they compare the two. And when everyone is attempting to paint the same picture, it can be challenging. And every so often, I like to try something new to see how the painting turns out. On the outskirts. There is, in my opinion, a healthy respect for everyone’s ability to create their own artwork.
