Blink-182 Reunite As Original Trio With New Song 'Edging'

By Taylor Fields

Blink-182 has returned as their original trio — consisting of Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker — and with brand new music. The band has officially shared their new song "Edging," marking the first time the guys have been in the studio together for the first time in 10 years.

"Edging" is the first taste of the band's forthcoming new album together, and in a statement, Barker explained of the new music, "I wanted to imagine as a listener what I wanted to experience and at the same time as a band member what we wanted to make and say and most importantly how it would sound production wise in 2022." Hoppus added, "I’m so happy to be back in the studio creating new music and looking forward to a giant world tour.”

The new song also follows blink-182's world tour announcement, which takes the band across the globe in 2023. The North American leg of their tour kicks off on May 4th in St. Paul, MN, and stops in cities around the country including Chicago, Detroit, New York, Boston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Seattle, Denver, Dallas, Houston, Tampa, Atlanta and more, before wrapping up in Nashville, TN on July 16th. See the full list of tour dates below.

After DeLonge departed from the band in 2015, Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba stepped in as the band's guitarist. In a heartfelt note to Skiba, shared on social media, Tom shared his gratitude for keeping the band "alive and thriving" while he was gone. He wrote, "I wanted to take a minute and say thank you for all that you have done to keep the band alive and thriving in my absence. I think you are enormously talented (I still love to listen to your band to this day). You have always been so kind to me, not only in the press, but also to others. I really noticed. Emotions between the three of us in blink have always been complicated, but Mark's cancer really put things in perspective. But to be honest, the band would not even be here today if it were not for your ability to jump in and save the day. So from my heart to yours, thank you for being a member of our band."
