As expected, Blink 182 announced it is reuniting for a tour and new album during tonight's Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. The group has been on hiatus for more than four years.
"We used to play music together, and we decided we're going to play music together again," said drummer Travis Barker, still with his arm in a sling following his survival of a deadly plane crash last year.
In a statement sent to the media, the band said, "To put it simply, We're back. We mean, really back. Picking up where we left off and then some. In the studio writing and recording a new album. Preparing to tour the world yet again. Friendships reformed. 17 years deep in our legacy." Rumors are swirling that the band will open for Green Day this summer, but details have not been announced.
