Tom DeLonge Reckons He'll Play With Blink-182 Again Some Day

Blink, and he's missed it

Tom DeLonge has said that he reckons that he'll eventually play music with blink-182 again.

Now, that might be news to some people - not least the man who replaced him in the band, Matt Skiba - but it will also set the pulse of every pop-punk fan of a certain age racing.

Anyway, if there ever comes a time when he's not out there proving that aliens are real after all, or playing with his current band Angels & Airwaves, DeLonge says that he'd love to reunite with his blink-182 chums, and maybe even hit the road once again.

He co-founded the band with Mark Hoppus and Scott Raynor in 1992, before Travis Barker joined the band and completed what is - for most people - the quintessential line-up in 1998.

Now, in a new interview, he's talking about quite literally getting the band back together.


He was asked about an Instagram post that he made last month, which read: "[The band] has given me every opportunity I have ever had, and gifted me some legendary friendships that I still have to this very day,"

So, at first he tried to pass this off as merely nostalgia, but then told Rolling Stone that it could one day become something more.

He told the magazine: "I was going through old photos and saw some old photos and just felt like it.

"You know, I talk to Mark and Travis every so often. I just talked to Mark the other day, and I talk to Travis about every week or two. And you know, I was feeling a little sentimental, but there's no hidden message there or anything."

But then, he added: "Everyone wants to know, 'Are you guys gonna play again?' Yeah, of course we are. We just gotta figure out the timing, how it works for everybody."


It's not clear whether 'everybody' in this case means Skiba too, or without their newest member. What is for certain, is that it's not going to happen just yet.

DeLonge has got 'multiple film projects' going on, as well as his To The Stars Academy, which performs research on extra-terrestrial life and unidentified flying objects.

Furthermore, he's already in a band.

In fact, Angels & Airwaves are about to release a new record, too.

DeLonge explained: "We're getting ready to put out the best record we've ever made."

Well, once all that's done, we might see another Mark, Tom and Travis show.
