Earlier this month, DeLonge took to his Instagram account and posted a picture of his ‘lounge’ area in his house. He revealed that the place might be familiar to the fans as it is featured in some of his posts. He said that it is the place where he watches movies, plays guitar and watch the kids skate the ramp. He wrote:

“You may have noticed a few posts from here. This is where I lounge at my house… a nice outdoor setting to relax in. Watch movies, play guitar… watch the little dudes skate the ramp. It’s a good spot.”

Tom DeLonge has been the charismatic guitarist and co-founder of Blink-182. He created  waves in the music world and continues to do so. Tom posted some photos of a set of guitars and they are seemingly doing tour rehearsals. Travis Barker was also spotted filming something and Mark Hoppus was also there at the studio. Fans have since been speculating that a new album might be on the horizon.

Recently, a new photo posted by DeLonge also showed that he is working on something that currently is titled “Blink Main Rhythm.” This was with other photos of the three laying down tracks in the studio seems to suggest we could be soon getting more new music from the band.

It has been announced that in August, Blink-182 and Liam Gallagher will share headline status at Reading and Leeds. The pop-punk trio are returning to the festival for the first time in 10 years and the former Oasis man making his second headline appearance after topping the bill in 2021.

Tom DeLonge talks about Liam Gallagher

In an old interview that resurfaced recently, Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge recalled an encounter with Gallagher when Oasis and Blink-182 were both appearing on the bill for a radio show in Detroit. “I remember sitting backstage and I’ve got my sideways hat on and nose piercings and crazy shit,” DeLonge recalled. “I hear the door open and here come all these guys in trench coats and Beatles haircuts and my first reaction is, ‘Oh, they look pretty cool’, but they’re not punk-rockers.”

It was this point that DeLonge said he remembered some advice Clash icon Joe Strummer had given him a few days prior about broadening his horizons. “We go up,” he continued, “play our show, we weren’t that big of a band yet so we were really f***ing rude in the funniest way, we would take those moments because 17,000 people are watching us that didn’t know who we were and we were playing with other bands so we’d just say really bad shit.”

“So we get offstage, I’m covered in sweat, the door flies open and here comes the singer of Oasis, Liam. He goes, ‘Are you guys Blink-182?’. I say, ‘Yeah’. He pauses and he goes, ‘You’re the best I’ve seen in America.’ I’m all, ‘You like us!’. He goes, ‘I didn’t say that but you’re the best I’ve seen in America’ and he slammed the door. I looked at everyone else and go, ‘Oh my god, that was the most punk rock dude I’ve ever met in my life.’ I became the biggest Oasis fan after that where from that day forward, I stopped listening to punk rock music and I started listening to everything.”
