The pop-punk trio's estranged guitarist says he's open to reuniting with Blink-182 if they they can "build back that special something that was once there."
The influential pop-punk trio will release 'California,' their first album without founding member Tom DeLonge, on July 1.
The 1999 pop-punk classic will be available on translucent blue vinyl in June.
Some thought Chicago trio Alkaline Trio veered too close to conventional rock with their third album, but it remains a vital (and catchy) influence on millennial punk.
“I haven’t been excited about a Blink album like this in a long time,” Barker said of the band's first album since Matt Skiba took over for Tom DeLonge.
SRC Vinyl will reissue Blink-182's 'Dude Ranch,' 'Enema of the State,' 'The Mark, Tom and Travis Show' and their 2003 eponymous LP on cassette this December.
But the Blink-182 drummer said that if the crash didn't kill him, his drug addiction might have.
Tom DeLonge has kept his plate plenty full since splitting with Blink-182 – including, apparently, work with Area 51-related matters of “national security.”
Despite DeLonge's very public and contentious split from the pop-punk outfit earlier this year, the guitarist said he's open to going back.
Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker will release 'Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death & Drums Drums Drums' later this year.
