In a new documentary, bassist Mark Hoppus recently revealed that Matt Skiba was the only person in the running to join the band after DeLonge’s departure. “The only person we talked about coming and playing our shows was Matt. The reception to Matt was amazing, overwhelming. People were chanting his name before we even came out and played,” he said.
Drummer Travis Barker also recently said the band hope to release an EP around Christmas featuring songs that didn’t make it onto ‘California’.
