Blink Announces Tour, NY Amps on the Itinerary

The DeLonge-less Era of Blink 182 is now officially upon us.

Masters of the pop-punk single Blink 182 have announced a lengthy tour, hitting amphitheaters and arenas across the U.S. with supporting acts A Day to Remember, All Time Low and All-American Rejects, kicking off in San Diego July 22.

New York dates include the Lakeside Amphitheater in Syracuse, Jones Beach in Wantagh, Darien Lake and SPAC.  The new Blink lineup includes Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus and former Alkaline Trio guitarist Matt Skiba, the replacement for Tom DeLonge.

However, a funny thing happened on the way to the amphitheater. As the massive tour was being announced on Thursday, an interview with DeLonge in Rolling Stone has the estranged guitarist stating that he’s still a member of the band. In the Rolling Stone piece, DeLonge speaks in the past tense about the relationship he’s had with Barker and Hoppus and the fact that he doesn’t want to see the “legacy of the band to get fucked with.” But a few weeks after the interview, he tells the magazine that he is “currently in the band,” and “has never officially quit or been fired.”

Regardless of DeLonge’s thoughts, Blink carries on without him. A new album entitled California, with Skiba laying down the licks, debuts July 1. The lead single from the new incarnation, “Bored to Death,” was released Thursday. Check it out below.
