Blink-182 is closing out a huge week for them with “Edging,” their first new piece of music with Tom DeLonge in nearly a decade.

“Edging” can be heard below and is available for streaming/download here. The track will be off a forthcoming album from the reunited trio. Details about said album will be announced at a later date.

“Edging” is the capper on an eventful week which also saw blink-182 announce a massive word tour for 2023-2024. All of this news officially means the Matt Skiba era of blink-182 is officially in the rear view. Skiba spent the past seven years on guitar/vocals. During his tenure, blink-182 released two studio albums: 2016’s California and 2019’s Nine.

Skiba’s time in the band was something DeLonge wanted to acknowledge. He shared a letter he sent to Skiba via Instagram along with the caption, “I sent this to Matt personally, but it’s important for the world to know that I honor him. Thank you, @matttskiba.”

The letter reads as follows:

“Hi Matt –

Tom DeLonge here. 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.”


Blink-182 Reunites with Tom DeLonge, Fans Are Feeling This

Blink-182 has made it official: Tom DeLonge is back, new music is on the way and they’re hitting the road for a massive tour.

The trio announced the news via the video below in which they confirmed: “They’re coming.” (Get it?) Oh, and a new studio album is also coming with the first single, “Edging,” due out this Friday, October 14 and is available for pre-save/pre-add here. (Call it a hunch, but I don’t think the song is about lawn maintenance.)


As for their tour, tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, October 17 at 10 AM local time. In addition to their own headlining reunion tour, blink-182 will be hitting up a number of festivals including Lollapalooza in Argentina and Brazil and 2023’s When We Were Young. A full list of tour dates is below.

As expected, the loyal blink fanbase collectively lost their minds when all of this news is confirmed. You can see their joy in all its glory in the tweets below.
