Is Tom DeLonge back?

DeLonge left Blink-182 in 2015, with his move causing some animosity at the time. Reported by Rollng Stone, Hoppus and Barker were informed he was leaving by DeLonge’s manager.

Hoppus said: “To be honest, I wasn’t that surprised because his attitude leading up to that had been not excited and not interested.” Whilst Barker called DeLonge “disrespectful and ungrateful”. Adding: “Why Blink even got back together in the first place is questionable.”

After leaving Blink-182 DeLonge continued playing and touring with his band Angels & Airwaves. He also dedicated much of his time to becoming a UFO researcher. In 2015 he executive produced the History Channel series Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation and in 2020, the Pentagon declassified UFO videos shared by DeLonge’s company.
