The first community I was ever a part of was because of blink-182, they’ve been a constant in my life and given me, and many others, a reason to laugh, a reason to smile, and a band to grow up with. As we stand on the edge of the next chapter, I’m happy it’s with all of you.

Taking to his Instagram after the announcement, DeLonge wrote: “What if I was to tell you we just made the best album of our career,” accompanied by a photo from the band’s earlier years.
Blink-182’s new single ‘Edging’ is set to arrive on Friday (October 14), and it marks the first time in a decade that the trio have been in a studio together (pre-save/pre-add here). A new full-length studio album is also in the works, though full details are yet to be revealed.
In addition to the music news, the band have announced their biggest tour to date, with concerts confirmed in the UK, Europe, North America Australia and New Zealand as well as their first-ever shows in Latin America.
