Back in 2015, Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge left the band. This was not the first time the band had reduced up, as they took a hiatus in 2005, and reunited once more in 2009.
However, this time, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker continued on without DeLonge and altered him with Matt Skiba. Fans are literally speculating over a potential reunion between the trio as a result of DeLonge’s newest Instagram updates.
Many have to know why DeLonge left the band in the first place. Let’s take a look…
Why did Tom DeLonge go away from Blink-182?
Tom DeLonge revealed in an interview with the organization To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, which he co-founded in 2015, that he left Blink-182 to “change the world” for his children “and everybody else’s.”
He talked about: “The last show I played was in front of 100,000 people. And then they wonder why I’m not doing that now and I’ll say because this is the one moment in my life where I’ll be able to look back as an old man and say, ‘Oh my god, I was a part of the team that changed the world.’”
DeLonge outlined that “this is the moment in time” the place he can change the world.
The guitarist co-founded To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science in 2015 with the objective of reaching “transformative discoveries within our reach that will revolutionize the human experience.”
He is a long-time believer in UFOs and talked about that there are “discoveries within our reach that will revolutionize the human experience.”
“The public interest in the outer edges of science and the understanding of phenomena has always been suffocated by mainstream ideology and bureaucratic constraint,” DeLonge mentioned.
Tom DeLonge hints at Blink-182 return
Tom DeLonge has sparked return rumors after he posted a throwback picture of Blink-182 on July thirty-first.
Matt Skiba, who modified DeLonge when he left in 2015, these days had followers questioning his place throughout the band when he responded to a comment asking why there was no “Blink content” on his profile.
“Your guess is as good as mine,” he replied.
Continuing on, Skiba talked about: “Regardless, I am very proud of and thankful for my time with Blink-182. We shall see…”
However, nothing has been confirmed and neither DeLonge nor Blink-182, have spoken on the rumors.
HITC has reached out to Blink-182 for comment.
