Band member QUITS week after festival announcement

Fans of Blink 182 are set to be very disappointed as it has been revealed that Tom DeLonge has officially quit.

In a statement released this morning, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker announced that Tom, who has been with Blink 182 for 23 years now, has decided to concentrate “on his other non-musical endeavours.”

It seems as if things are far from okay with the trio, with Mark and Travis stating: "We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason. A week before we were scheduled to go in to the studio we got an email from his manager explaining that he didn't want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors. No hard feelings, but the show must go on for our fans."


However, there may be some good news in here somewhere for punk rock fans as it has also been revealed that Tom will be replaced by Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba for March’s Musink festival.

It’s definitely the end of an era!
