He's going to have a van pulled by the tour bus and just switch back there. It's pretty awesome .... reliving how it used to be like. At the end of the interview, they talk a LITTLE bit about some songs on the album. I keep on hearing Rabbit Hole ha.

They seem really stoked for Cynical, though. Mark says that was the song that basically sums up the record. Just fast, loud and BAM. I'm really excited ....

Pretty cool interview. It's nice to read that they're feeling the same hunger and energy that they had when they were a younger band. I'm getting a little tired of "gang vocals" in pop punk songs so I'm not too excited to hear that Rabbit Hole will have that. At least it'll just be in the end of the song.


Sounds Cool but also sorta sounds like a Mid Life Crisis. No one I know who tours sleeping on a van floor, wants to be sleeping on the van floor.... Most tour vans are also pretty gnarly...

I'm 100% sure that Mark was joking about sleeping in a van being towed by the tour bus, and the fact that you guys didn't get that makes me worried for all of you.

Probably there to reminisce with everyone else who was once in a band with Tom and how batshit crazy he is.

That's what I'm guessing. Lol

Lmfao totally wouldn't happen, but it would be hilarious to hear that Mark/Travis/Atom got drunk enough that night to have a little "fuck Tom" convo.

I imagine it would go somehow like this:

You should probably be worrying for me then. I was like ... fuck ... yah!!! That's awesome!

If he does do that, however, do I get like a lollipop or something?

And someone said earlier that they were concerned about blink doing gang vocals. I can understand that to a degree. That being said, it's fun when a band you like tries out what everyone else is doing, but gives it a unique spin.

Like, I remember when hyping up their All Hope Is Gone album, Slipknot said that they were going to do breakdowns in Wherein Lies Continue song, which, as many of you know, is overused in various genres. However, it was still exciting to see what Slipknot would do, and they ended up almost making a parody of breakdowns by giving it their own unique spin to it.

It's also fun when bands try out a trend when it's WAAAAAAYYYY old and no one does it anymore.

Again, with Slipknot on their The Gray Chapter album, they incorporated a Mediterranean sound into their song Sarcastrophe, which was a huge thing metal bands started doing like crazy in early 2000s (even though it had been done before ... more and more just jumped on the bandwagon then).

So it could work. It would be interesting for blink to try it out ... even though I usually hate them myself haha

Atom is a really good friend of Skiba's. He was also in the side project TheHell which was made of just Atom and Matt.

Lets see we have members of angels and waves at the party, and of blink, but no Tom :P

Matt Skiba is friends with a lot of talented people. If blink doesnt do more work after California as run its course and AK3 doesnt record he will probably start another side project. Dude loves his music... Or another Sekrets record. I wouldnt be opposed to that...

So I talked to a friend from LA yesterday who likes blink but isn't a diehard. She said "I'm going to the San Diego show on the 22nd but there are rumors that Tom isn't going to be there." When I told her that Tom hasn't been in the band for a year, she said one of her friends told her that Tom would be playing at most of the other shows on the tour, just maybe not the San Diego one. It's like she wouldn't believe me when I told her he wouldn't be at any of them and that he isn't in the band.

So there's an idea of what the general public thinks..

Yeah a ton of people keep asking "But Tom isn't on the new song?"

I can't wait for someone's pit ticket concert review "I was TRICKED into seeing blink-182 without Tom!!"
