Blink-182 Playing SummerFest Before Going On Summer Tour, Releases New Single Post-Tom DeLonge: ‘Bored To Death’

Blink-182 is back, even without Angels & Airwaves frontman and former Blink lead guitarist and singer Tom DeLonge. Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, and Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba continue the spirit of Blink-182 by releasing a brand new single, titled “Bored to Death,” reports USA Today.

The track is going to be featured on California, Blink’s new album, which will be released this summer on July 1. The pop-punk band will also be heading out on a huge summer tour to support the album, but not before the trio plays SummerFest this year. Blink-182 are going to be headlining the Marcus Amphitheater on Tuesday, July 5, and the band will be joined by special guest All Time Low.

Tickets for Blink-182’s SummerFest show will be on sale Saturday, May 7, and will include SummerFest admission. You can purchase your tickets at the Summerfest Box Office in person or by phone; more information can be found at Ticketmaster.com.

Blink-182 has come a long way since their humble beginnings in 1992, back before Barker had joined the band, when Mark and Tom were with drummer Scott Raynor. Barker was brought in midway through their 1998 tour for Dude Ranch. After that, the band reached huge commercial success with their 1999 album, Enema of the State, which produced the classic singles, “What’s My Age Again?,” “Adam’s Song,” and “All the Small Things.” In 2005, the band was on an indefinite hiatus, and the band broke up, though Hoppus and Barker continued playing music together with their new group, +44.

On September 19, 2008, Barker and Adam Goldstein (DJ AM) were involved in a plane crash that killed four people, with Barker having sustained second and third degree burns. The group reunited after this, releasing another album, Neighborhoods, but DeLonge left the band yet again in 2015.

“The band has always been dysfunctional,” former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge told Rolling Stone. “The only time we all really communicated daily was in Blink’s first, sort of, trimester. If they would have come to me and said, ‘Hey, you’re really busy right now. We really want to do something, maybe we should get someone to fill in,’ or something, I would have probably been fine with it.”

Summerfest begins on June 29 and runs through July 3 and July 5 through July 10. Twelve days later, Blink-182’s summer tour will begin. Tour dates can be found below.
