The Blink-182 rumour mill is in overdrive since a few days. There are rumours among fan communities that Tom DeLonge is going to return to the band.
Fans have spotted billboards in Peru that advertise the band. It is being said that the band will go to South America for a tour there.
Blink-182 also wiped their Instagram clean. They hid all their posts from the Instagram page as a way to generate hype and get fans talking. The band also wiped Matt Skiba from the band’s history after it was rumoured that he was fired. The official website of the band is also under construction. On their Twitter account, while they didn’t clean it up, (there is no option on Twitter to archive tweets) – the band has liked a bunch of posts on the website from 2012-13 that contain the phrase “10 years.”
There are also posters in Manhattan advertising 182 Industries, which is clearly a reference for the band, indicating a North American tour is coming too. The slogan on these posters even says, “Your future is cumming…in the blink of an eye.”
Mark Hoppus’ Instagram story containing the name “Tom” also fuelled speculations further that DeLonge is going to return to the band.
Before becoming the lead vocalist and guitarist of Angels & Airwaves which he formed in 2005, DeLonge was known for being the co-lead vocalist, guitarist, and co-founder of Blink-182. The band formed in 1992 and DeLonge left it in 2015. He formed the band with bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Scott Raynor during his high school years.
