Blink-182 Finally Make Major Tom DeLonge Announcement


Blink-182 singer/bassist Mark Hoppus has announced that Tom DeLonge is yet again his ‘best friend’ in an emotional new tweet.

Hoppus also recently wrote to Tom DeLonge in a comment on Instagram, “I love you and I always will.”

A fan asked Hoppus on Twitter, “Are you and Tom buds again? Keep seeing you post random pictures of the past.”

Hoppus responded, “Didn’t you see Urethra Chronicles 2? Best friends forever.”

Tom DeLonge also told <a href=”” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Kerrang in an interview today that he ‘plans’ on reuniting with Blink-182 in the future. DeLonge left Blink-182 in 2015 and was replaced by Matt Skiba.

“I get it – trust me, I love blink and it’s given me everything in my life,” Tom says. “And, you know, I plan on doing it in the future. But right now there’s just no way – I have way too much going on because Angels & Airwaves is a part of To The Stars, and that’s why it works.”

Reflecting on his personal and creative journey to get to this point, Tom remembers: “Breadcrumbs and baby steps got me here, and even 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. They go, ‘Okay, this guy is really into these big concepts and this anthemic, triumphant music,’ and all that shit, and then they see me go and start my company and they go, ‘Holy shit, he’s really into space and these themes.’ (Laughs) And I think what’s happened now is people are realising that I know what I’m doing, I know what I’m going after, I know how to do it, and it’s going to be wonderful when it all comes together.”
