"WE ARE COMING!"

Blink-182 have reunited with Tom DeLonge for a huge world tour, and are due to release a new single this week. Tickets for UK and European dates are available here, and here for North American shows.

The song ‘Edging’ is set to arrive on Friday (October 14), and it marked the first time in a decade that DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker had been in a studio together (pre-save/pre-add here).

A new full-length studio album is also in the works, details of which are yet to be revealed.

Back in July, Matt Skiba said that he didn’t know if he was still a part of Blink-182. The Alkaline Trio vocalist joined the band in 2015 as a replacement for DeLonge who left “to change the world for my kids”.

DeLonge then hinted that he’d rejoined the group later this summer, before Hoppus said the original trio were in “a really great place right now”.

The three members met up prior to Hoppus beginning chemotherapy treatment in 2021. “It was the first time that all three of us were in the same room in like five years,” the bassist recalled of that reunion.

Hoppus was diagnosed with 4-A diffuse large B-cell lymphoma last year. He told fans in September 2021 that he was cancer-free.

“It’s actually better than it used to be,” Hoppus said of Blink’s relationship in August. “There was no agenda [when they met up]. There were no lingering grudges. It felt very back to what it should be: three friends sitting in a room.”

He added: “I keep writing music, and I’m open to whatever the next phase of Blink is. I’m hopeful for the future. I’m just damn glad to be here.”

Blink 182’s most recent album, ‘Nine’, came out in 2019. It was the second record to feature Matt Skiba, following on from 2016’s ‘California’. The last Blink project to include contributions from Tom DeLonge was the 2012’s ‘Dogs Eating Dogs’ EP.
