Blink-182 are looking forward to a future without an original member and mull the possibility of hitting the studio with Matt Skiba in his stead.
All Time Low surprised their Los Angeles audience last night when they were joined on stage by Mark Hoppus for a performance of “Tidal Waves,” a ballad featuring the blink-182 singer.
Blink-182 performed their first live show in front of audience last night with Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba filling in for Tom DeLonge. Watch the video.
When All Time Low’s Jack Barakat and Rian Dawson each got tattoos of the Blink-182 bunny back in 2008, they had no idea that one day they’d be sitting in Mark Hoppus’ home studio writing a song together.
In a statement released this morning from the band’s publicist, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker explain the show must go on.
“We can take the next step and really get back to risk-taking,” Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge told Radio.com.
“It was very forward for us, it was such an adventurous recording. That really felt good because we’d turned the corner from a pop-punk band to conceptual and progressive, um, punk band.”
