Blink-182 is back!
Travis Barker, Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge are reuniting and releasing new music. It’s the first time that the trio have been in the studio together in 10 years.
The band announced on Tuesday with a funny and risqué double entendre-video which revealed that they will be releasing a new song titled “Edging” on Friday and will also be embarking on a world tour for the first time since 2015.
