More to be found at philipbh.com Just a about a week before their release party, Siamese lead singer Mirza Radonjica wrote me on facebook and asked if Rockfreaks.net would be open to maybe show a bit of an inside story about the day. Feeling old enough to actually make no-hangover arrangements on a Saturday mid-day, I accepted. So, Saturday at one o'clock I showed up at Mirza’s place, expecting the boys to be hungover, and when there is no one answering the doorbell my prejudiced mind flies to the pres...

Skiba only in Blink for one show + DeLonge's perspective elaborated

Posted by TL on 28/01/15

Bassist/singer Mark Hoppus has given another interview, this one to altpress.com, explaining that Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba is only scheduled to play with Blink-182 at the upcoming Musink Festival and that nothing further is set in stone. He also explains the deleted tweet from Tom DeLonge, which mentioned previous discussions to have Blink's drummer Travis Barker replaced:


We got back from tour and Tom was having these calls where he was talking about “can we replace Travis, can we do whatever,” but it was really just Tom blowing off steam. There were a few days of calls where I listened to Tom, commiserated with Tom and, immediately afterwards, called up my manager and [said], “Tom’s upset right now, he’s talking about trying to replace Travis, but I’m not into it. That’s not going to happen.” And sure enough, Tom, after a month, called back up and was like, “Hey you know what? I was just angry about it. It was a bad situation, and of course I don’t want to kick Travis out of the band.” I don’t think Tom was ever truly serious about it.

Meanwhile, the now former Blink frontman Tom DeLonge has posted a longer account of his own perspective on facebook, explaining his view of things:


Over the past two and a half years, while a recording partner was being sought for a new Blink record, I launched a media company. I just put out a new Angels & Airwaves record and as some of you know, there’s a lot more coming – comics, books, a film, etc. The books will all come with music. This is a wheel that’s already in motion. So you can imagine my frustration when I was handed a 60-page Blink contract saying I couldn’t release an Angels album for 9 months and that the Blink album had to be recorded in 6 months, which was impossible for me. Doing so would force me to breach several artist contracts. Authors, Concept Artists, Animators... Many people.

Hoppus & Barker interviewed about DeLonge's break with Blink-182

Posted by TL on 27/01/15

Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus have been interviewed by Rolling Stone, detailing the situation surrounding Tom DeLonge's break with Blink-182. This comes in response to a statement from DeLonge's publicist which insists that he has not quit the band.


Excerpt from the interview:


Barker: It's just funny to me. I think he's just in shock that he's finally been exposed. The truth is out. I just don't think he knows how to deal with it, so he says, "I didn't quit the band. I'm booking Blink shows as we speak." You're not the booking agent. We all know that's a lie. You don't want to twist any grown man's arm to do anything he doesn't want to do, but step up to the plate and say, "Yeah, I don't want to play with those guys. I've been saying I'd record with the guys for the last two or three years and I'll just do Blink shows when I need money."

The statement from DeLonge's publicist:


Contrary to reports, Tom DeLonge has not left Blink 182. “I never quit the band,” he says. “Actually, I was on the phone discussing a possible Blink-182 event in New York City when I heard the ‘news.’ The ONLY truth here is that I have commitments that limit my availability this year.

Tom DeLonge leaves Blink 182 *UPDATED*

Posted by TL on 26/01/15

Kroq is reporting that singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge has left Blink 182.


The remaining members Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus have revealed that Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba will be replacing him, as the band plans to honour all scheduled concert commitments. The statement which follows was released from the band's publicist:


Matt Skiba of the Alkaline Trio will join Blink-182 in replacement of Tom DeLonge at the 8th annual Musink Music and Tattoo Festival. “We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason. A week before we were scheduled to go in to the studio we got an email from his manager explaining that he didn’t want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinetly, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors.” Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus plan to honor all Blink-182 commitments including the Musink Festival and are excited to have singer/guitarist Matt Skiba join them for this project. “No hard feelings, but the show must go on for our fans.” Additionally, Skiba will continue to make new music and tour with the Alkaline Trio.


DeLonge has responded to the news with the following statement on his facebook:


To all the fans, I never quit the band. I actually was on a phone call about a blink 182 event for New York City at the time all these weird press releases started coming in... Apparently those releases were 'sanctioned' from the band. Are we dysfunctional- yes. But, Christ..... #Awkward #BabyBackRibs
