DID TOM DeLONGE QUIT? OR WAS HE PUSHED OUT?

In a statement released on Monday morning (Jan. 26) from the band's publicist and, Blink-182's remaining members, bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker, announced that DeLonge "didn't want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors." On Monday, Blink-182 was announced as a headliner of the Musink Tattoo & Music Festival, to be held March 20-22 in Los Angeles, with Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba joining the group in place of DeLonge.
"We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason," the group wrote in the statement. "A week before we were scheduled to go in to the studio we got an email from his manager explaining that he didn't want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors. No hard feelings, but the show must go on for our fans."
