Is this more evidence he won’t be returning to Blink any time soon?

Tom DeLonge may no longer be playing with Blink-182, but he's certainly keeping busy.

On April 20, DeLonge will release To The Stars, his first true solo collection, possibly including unheard Blink demos. The guitarist announced the project via a new website, where you can hear snippets of some of those previously-unheard songs.

This media is not available on this platform.



Three songs will be released ahead of the album -- the first on March 9, the second on March 23, and the third on April 6. The full track listing will be released on March 16. Pre-sale deals and bundles are already available on DeLonge's site.

Earlier in 2015, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker announced that DeLonge had left Blink-182 and would be replaced by Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba when the band played an upcoming festival. DeLonge fired back saying he hadn't actually left the band, but all news since -- especially this solo album -- appears to indicate that DeLonge isn't planning on working with his old bandmates any time soon.
