Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Says He Hasn’t Spoken with Tom DeLonge in 18 Months

By Hayden Wright

Last week, former Blink-182 guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge gave a somewhat confusing interview to Rolling Stone in which he claimed to have never left the band. In a subsequent Facebook post, DeLonge said he met with band members to discuss working together in the future. In his account, the Angels & Airwaves founder effectively said “thanks but no thanks” working on more Blink music in the near future.

Things got even more awkward from there. On Live 105’s Kevin Klein Live, bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus gave a different account of their relationship: “I haven’t even spoken to Tom in a year and a half,” he said. Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker are currently promoting Blink’s new album California with bassist Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio), who replaced DeLonge last year. Hoppus added that the idea of DeLonge rejoining isn’t even on the band’s radar.

“That is something so far down the road to even be a possibility,” Hoppus continued. “His post came as a surprise to me. I’ll never say never to anything, but this is what Blink-182 is right now, and we’re in a really good spot and really excited about things and this is what the band is.”

California will be released July 1. Last week, Blink-182 released a lyric video for the album track “Bored to Death.”
