'In a new interview with Kerrang!, DeLonge responded to the idea that despite Angels & Airwaves releasing a new album this year, fans will still want a new Blink record from Tom.
“I get it – trust me, I love Blink and it’s given me everything in my life,” Tom says. “And, you know, I plan on doing it in the future. But right now there’s just no way – I have way too much going on becauseAngels & Airwavesis a part of To The Stars, and that’s why it works.”
DeLonge continues, “When I left blink the first time, I dealt with a lot of losing my identity and people being angry with me. I had to rebuild who I am and what I want to do with my life, and the world didn’t support it, really. I understand why, but then over time, they started to understand who I am and why I need to do the things I do.”
AVA and Blink both released new songs in 2019, just one week apart from each other. So far, Angels & Airwaves’ “Rebel Girl” has received a much warmer reaction from fans than Blink-182’s “Blame It on My Youth.”- = via loudwire
