Blink-182 is back with their brand new single “Bored To Death“!
This is first release for the band – including original members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker and newbie Matt Skiba, as Tom DeLonge exited the group last year – in nearly five years. It will be included on their forthcoming album California, which is due out on July 1st!
Along with the new single release, Blink-182 have announced that they will be hitting the round this summer on their A Day To Remember Tour. The massive trek kicks off on July 22nd in San Diego and wraps up with dates at Irvine Meadows September 29th and the Forum October 1st.

“I love Blink and am incredibly grateful for having it in my life,” Tom writes in his new letter posted on his Facebook page. “It has given me everything. EVERYTHING. I started this band, it was in my garage where I dreamed up the mischief.”

“To all the fans, I never quit the band. I actually was on a phone call about a blink 182 event for New York City at the time all these weird press releases started coming in…” Tom wrote on his Facebook page. “Apparently those releases were ‘sanctioned’ from the band. Are we dysfunctional- yes. But, Christ….. #Awkward #BabyBackRibs.”
No word yet on whether Tom will appear at the band’s upcoming appearance at the Musink Tatto & Music Festival in March, but we’ll keep you update if news breaks!
“We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason,” the guys said in a statement (via THR). “A week before we were scheduled to go in to the studio we got an email from his manager explaining that he didn’t want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors. No hard feelings, but the show must go on for our fans.”
Tom will be temporarily replaced by Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio for the band’s performance at the 2015 Music and Tattoo Festival.
