Speaking to Rolling Stone, the former Blink-182 guitarist said that the original band members “just gotta figure out the timing”.
“Everyone wants to know, ‘are you guys gonna play again?’ Yeah, of course we are. We just gotta figure out the timing, how it works for everybody,” DeLonge said.
Although he has been busy with side project, Angels & Airwaves, it seems that DeLonge’s original band has been on his mind lately. DeLonge recently posted to social media that he has been feeling grateful to have been a part of Blink-182.
“I started @blink182 when I was 16, and it has been such a wonderful blessing throughout my entire life. I am so lucky to have had this, even when I’ve desired to tackle different artistic projects and challenges,” the guitarist wrote on Instagram.
In his interview with Rolling Stone, DeLonge addressed his recent social media activity.
“I was going through old photos and saw some old photos and just felt like (posting to social media),” he said.
“I talk to Mark and Travis every so often. I just talked to Mark the other day, and I talk to Travis about every week or two,” he said.
DeLonge left Blink-182 in 2015 to pursue other projects, and was replaced by Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba. Blink-182 have released two albums, California and Nine, without DeLonge.
Since leaving the group, Tom DeLonge has dedicated considerable time to his passion of UFO investigation. He has also continued to make music with Angels & Airwaves, and plans on releasing an album with them in the near future.
