Blink-182 fans may not have seen the last of Tom DeLonge. In a recent interview with Kerrang! The ex-blink man has said has every intention of returning. Even after a 5-year departure, and him forming his own band Angels & Airwaves, DeLonge is hinting at a return to the band.
This isn’t the first time that he had left the band, and Blink’s 2009 reunion was one of the most talked about of the decade. Going back to the recent interview with Kerrang!, DeLonge responded to the question that fans still want a new Blink record from Tom.
He responded: “I get it – trust me, I love Blink and it’s given me everything in my life,” adding: “And, you know, I plan on doing it in the future. But right now there’s just no way – I have way too much going on because Angels & Airwaves is a part of To The Stars, and that’s why it works.”
DeLonge also spoke candidly about his leaving the band: “When I left blink the first time, I dealt with a lot of losing my identity and people being angry with me. I had to rebuild who I am and what I want to do with my life, and the world didn’t support it, really. I understand why, but then over time, they started to understand who I am and why I need to do the things I do.”
Both Blink and AVA have released new material in 2019, and both singles were released within one week of each other. So which song is doing better? Well, as of now, Angels & Airwaves’ “Rebel Girl” has received a better reaction from fans than Blink-182’s “Blame It on My Youth.”
Looks like there’s some unfinished business here folks…
