Is Tom Delonge with his former bandmate from Blink-182, Travis Barker? It appears that might be happening from little teasers and leaks this week on social media from both members of the iconic pop punk band. Delonge whose had a busy week with new UFO discoveries made through his To The Stars Academy Of Arts & Science who released some really shocking video, posted on IG recently that he was being interviewed for a project that Barker was working on and he expressed to Blink fans that they had “talked a bit about other stuff”. WHAT IS THIS OTHER STUFF?
The social media detectives over at Alt-Press pulled this one from Travis Barker’s Instragram. In the image which appears to your average musican in a studio show, has a specific guitar that caught the eye of diehard fans. This guitar is a ES-333—which happens to be Tom DeLonge’s signature. ARE THEY MAKING MUSIC TOGETHER?! These may be wild assumptions but they are not that far off.
During a March 2017 interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, Delonge expressed publicly again he was still involved in Blink, even though Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba has been with the group for two years plus, a long touring cycle, and a well-received album. “They have someone doing my job for me,” DeLonge said. “It’s just that I’m so busy. If I wanted to, I could be back in a period of days.” DeLonge also said “I still own the band,” but clarified that he co-owns it with Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. “Blink is in my DNA, I talk to Travis quite a bit and we try and figure out how and when it’s going to make sense.”

In the video below, Blink 182 breaks down all of the tracks on their album ‘California’ they did with Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba . It’s truly magnificent album that was a graceful transition without Delonge in the fold and adding Skiba’s creative edge. If you disagree, hit me up on Twitter @Kevkellam
