Tom DeLonge, Travis Barker, and Mark Hoppus are reuniting as Blink-182, with new music and a world tour on tap. The band will showcase DeLonge in the lineup for the first time in seven years, and a new single titled “Edging” is set to arrive on Friday.
The trio announced their reunion in the most-Blink-182 manner… a video loaded with innuendo.
There is a Toronto date set for May 11th at Scotiabank Arena. Tickets go on sale Monday, October 17.
Both DeLonge and Hoppus stand as founding members of Blink-182, having originally formed the band in 1992. Barker joined the band in 1998, and the trio performed and recorded music together off-and-on until DeLonge left in 2015.
Hoppus and Barker continued making music with Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba assuming DeLonge’s place in the band. DeLonge spent the hiatus studying UFOs and influencing The Pentagon on the matter.
Turnstile have been tabbed to support Blink-182 on the North American portion of the tour.
