Tom DeLonge Plans To Rejoin Blink-182

When Tom DeLonge quit Blink-182 a second time in 2014 things were pretty messy. But the band quickly moved on hiring Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba as a replacement. And though DeLonge is relaunching Angels and Airwaves, he plans on returning to Blink-182.

Speaking to Kerrang in a recent interview, DeLonge responded to fans who want to see him make another album with Blink-182 saying “I get it – trust me, I love blink and it’s given me everything in my life,” he said. “And, you know, I plan on doing it in the future.”

DeLonge continues, “When I left blink the first time, I dealt with a lot of losing my identity and people being angry with me. I had to rebuild who I am and what I want to do with my life, and the world didn’t support it, really. I understand why, but then over time, they started to understand who I am and why I need to do the things I do.”

But don’t expect a reunion anytime soon. “Right now there’s just no way,” he says. “I have way too much going on because Angels & Airwaves is a part of To The Stars, and that’s why it works.”

Angels and Airwaves will head out on their first tour in seven years this summer, while Blink-182 will tour with Lil Wayne.
