Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker recently replaced the singer with Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba
Ex-Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge has claimed that it would only take “a few phone calls” for him to consider making music with his former band again.
Earlier this year, DeLonge’s former bandmates Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus announced their split from Tom DeLonge when the singer allegedly refused to enter the studio and record a new album with them. The pair later claimed that they’re going through a “friendly divorce” with the exiled musician.
With Hoppus and Barker recently replacing DeLonge with Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba and announcing plans to record new material with the new-look line-up, DeLonge has now suggested that he’d be open to reconcilation with the group.
Attending San Diego Comic-Con to promote his new graphic novel, DeLonge was asked what it would take for him to record music with Blink-182 again. He replied: “probably just a few phone calls”.

Speaking about the band’s relationship with DeLonge, Hoppus recently said that while “the love is still there”, they have nonetheless drifted apart.
He told the Das Process podcast: “Tom was my best friend for years and years and the thing is if you think about the people that you were friends with at the end of high school and the beginning of college. How many of those people are you still friends with? We’ve been in the same van and bus and aeroplane and backstage room and stage for twenty something years.”
Travis Barker recently called the band’s first live performances without DeLonge “a great feeling”.
