Well, talk about exciting. After yesterday’s frenzy from a supposedly “leaked single,” pop-punk icons Blink-182 have finally given fans what they’ve been waiting for.
Not only did the band confirm their new, 16-track album California – which will hit stores July 1 – but Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and newly added Matt Skiba have revealed they’ll be touring this summer with A Day To Remember, All Time Low and All American Rejects.
The impressive 45-date tour will kick off in late July and will run all across the US until early October. VIP tickets will go on sale May 2 and can be found here.
In other Blink related news, founding and former member Tom DeLonge had a recent sit down with Rolling Stone touching on his on and off relationship with the band.
“I love those guys,” DeLonge explains, “The only thing I think about is, I want them to be happy. [But] I don’t want the legacy of the band to get fucked with. I do care about that. I don’t want an incredible legacy to be ruined."
Delonge also commented on possibly reuniting with Blink saying, "I’m not opposed to it. I still would be interested, if people would just pick up the phone and call."
Then, in true DeLonge fashion as of late, the mysterious Angels and Airwaves frontman confusingly told Rolling Stone a few weeks after the interview, "I am currently in the band” and stands by the fact that he has never officially quit or been fired.
Essentially, if you’re a Blink-182 fan, it seems like between the new album, tour and DeLonge mystique, 2016 is looking to be pretty entertaining.
