Published Feb 10, 2009Following a slew of denials and an in-person make-up session, Tom Delonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker have announced that they are indeed resurrecting their long-running pop punk band, Blink-182. The announcement first appeared when the band presented an award at the Grammys this past Sunday (February 8). Still wearing a cast from his vicious plane crash, Barker simply said, "We used to play music together, and we decided we're going to play music together again."
The announcement was certainly a big deal for fans but perhaps was overshadowed by M.I.A.'s pregnant performance and Robert Plant and Allison Krauss' omnipresence. Thus, the band also made sure to issue a statement on their website, which states, "To put it simply, We're back. We mean, really back. Picking up where we left off and then some. In the studio writing and recording a new album. Preparing to tour the world yet again. Friendships reformed. 17 years deep in our legacy."
The band played their last show together over four years ago, and a rumour is now flying around that they'll be opening for Green Day on their upcoming world tour. Better dust off the khakis and Hurley T-shirts because the '90s are back, again!
