Longtime guitarist of Blink-182, Tom Delonge, has left the trio indefinitely. Says the 2 remaining members: “We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason,” Hoppus and Barker said. “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.”

Taking over the vacant spot will be Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba. Even though he will be apart of Blink-182, he will still be working hard on Alkaline Trio.
