Blink 182 Reform to make new album

Their not everyone's cup of tea but this does sound like some big news and not much has been posted in Bands/Artists for a while. So here is the story anyway:

Blink-182 reform for new album and tour

The band choose the Grammys to make their comeback announcement


Blink 182 have announced they are to reform for a tour and new album.

The band, who have been on hiatus since February 2005, released a statement on their official website Blink182.com confirming that all three original members - Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker - are currently in the studio together.

"To put it simply, we're back," the statement said.

"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."

Blink 182 are expected to tour this summer, although no official dates have been confirmed.

Appearing at last night's Grammy Awards, drummer Barker spoke of the reformation, saying "We used to play music together, and we decided we're going to play music together again."

In September, Barker sustained serious injuries after the plane he was traveling on crashed in South Carolina. He was one of two survivors, along with DJ AM (Adam Goldstein).

DeLonge publically dissed Blink-182 in 2006, saying "I do not want to be in a bulls**t pop band with some bulls**t pop songs while you drive your fucking bulls**t car and sing along to it like you’re some 14 year-old girl."
