Earlier today, Blink-182 members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker released a statement noting that founding member Tom DeLonge had “indefinitely” left the band and that Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba would replace the singer-guitarist for the band’s upcoming set at Musink Festival. DeLonge countered shortly after, posting on his Instagram, “I never quit the band,” calling the press release “weird” and questioning its legitimacy. In an exclusive, candid interview with Rolling Stone, Hoppus and Barker set the record straight on the band’s inner turmoils, album delays and ongoing frustrations.

In a KROQ interview this morning with Travis and Mark, they announced they would be playing a few shows in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of blink-182’s “Untitled” album. They’ll be playing “Untitled” front to back, along with some other songs.
“It’s something special. It’s the 10-year mark of this album. We just did a run…but this is solely purely for our fans. It’s like a way of giving back and really celebrating an album that was like a turning point for our career.”

Rolling Stone sat down with blink before their small venue show in Brooklyn last Wednesday and spoke with them about the good old days, their creative process, recording the next album, and their signature toilet humor.
As the sound of opening band (and Blink disciples) New Beat Fund rattled the club walls, DeLonge and Hoppus gave a wide-ranging interview, revealing to Rolling Stone they are in town meeting with labels for their next album due next year (they recently left Universal Music Group after 15 years) and opening up about their creative process, their status as pop-punk pioneers, their wild early years and their sometimes-rocky relationship. “Everyone is so different,” says Hoppus. “It’s what tears our band apart and it’s what makes us great when we’re great.”
