Blink-182 Reunite With Tom DeLonge for World Tour

Blink-182 hasn’t created new music with all of the original members in over three years, and it’s been even longer since they put out their most recent album. When Travis Barker, Tom DeLonge, and Mark Hoppus went on a lengthy reunion tour in the late aughts and early 2010s, they released their final piece of music as a fully-formed collective, the Dogs Eating Dogs EP, in 2012. That last time it happened was almost ten years ago.

Since then, each individual has pursued his own interests (Hoppus has been battling cancer, DeLonge has been making music with his other group Angels & Airwaves, and Barker, as we know, has been fully integrated into the Kardashian fold). The boys are back together now, though, with a brand-new album, song, and—possibly most excitingly—a world tour.

The reunion announcement came today in the form of a new YouTube video, cheekily titled “WE ARE COMING! to a city near you!” Built around the double entendre of “coming,” the video centers on a bunch of people giving testimonials about how excited they are about someone coming. “If I’m being totally honest, I can not stop thinking about them coming,” says one bikini-clad woman as she peacefully floats around on a pool floatie. “I’ve tried hundreds of different ways to make them come,” says another, this one a skateboarder standing around in a skatepark. While shoving some letters into a mailbox, a mailman says, “Every night, I pray for them to come.” “We would do anything to make them come,” says one woman as she does some gardening. “That’s right, honey. Anything,” her husband responds.

The promotional material served as a good prelude to the release of their comeback single, appropriately titled “Edging.” The new track, which will be released this Friday, October 14, may or may not be about that oh-so-familiar sex act. Or perhaps it’s simply a matter of living on the edge!

The public can purchase tickets for the big supporting globe tour starting next Monday, October 17, at 10:00am local time. (Those who use the access code PUMPKIN will have access to a Live Nation presale for dates in North America on Thursday, October 13). Through Ticketmaster, tickets may be bought here.
