Mark Hoppus: Blink-182 are going through “a friendly divorce” with Tom DeLonge

So it appears that the inevitable welcome or unwelcome (depending on your perspective) news is finally upon us: Tom DeLonge is gone from the Blink-182 camp, and isn’t exactly on his way back.

In a recent interview with the Das Process podcast, Blink bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus confirmed that the remaining two-thirds of the band were going through a “friendly divorce with (their) former guitarist.” Hoppus added: “hopefully things clear up and it doesn’t get all manager-y and lawyer-y and all that and we can move forward.” You can check out the rest of the interview here.

It would appear that this would pave the way for DeLonge’s recent replacement, Alkaline Trio‘s Matt Skiba (pictured above with Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker) to take a more official role in what would, in many ways, become a sort of supergroup. Stay tuned.

Free Download: Mixtapes rarities album “These Are Us”

Paper+Plastick Records are offering a free download of “These Are Us”, a collection of unreleased songs, B sides, covers and everything else from Ohio pop-punk act Mixtapes.

Here’s what the band had to say about the release:

“…..I was at Eric’s house the other day, who is the guy that recorded and engineered all of the Mixtapes records. We were going through stuff and joking around and realized we had quite a few songs no one had ever heard,including myself more than once or twice. A few of them I thought “why on earth didn’t we put this on a record?”. Then I remembered that Weezer also didn’t put Susanne on a record and we all make mistakes. At that point I decided we should put out a free download of all of our unreleased material, rare material, splits and just things in general that might not be so easy to get anymore. After clearing it with the suits and tracking down all of the songs, in part thanks to some listeners I did it. So here it is, sequenced with artwork and ending with something very special. We are really proud of the songs and there’s no reason they shouldn’t be available if you like our band so please download it, share it, post it etc etc. The last song on this record is something near and dear to me. One day while recording “Even on the worst nights” everyone went to breakfast. I stayed behind, clicked record in the studio and put myself in the mindset of a high school non conformist goth kid. What came out was 15 minutes of completely freestyled angst that I could never repeat or pull off again, so please while listening feel my pain. But really, we are excited to release this all on one record and thanks to Vinnie for putting it out and being the best, we love you!”

EP Review: Masked Intruder – ‘Incriminating Evidence: 2011 Demos’

When you think about it, 2011 wasn’t all that long ago. And yet, for a band like Masked Intruder, it seems like eons ago. Who would have thought that four years ago a band that dressed up in color coordinated criminal outfits could be one of the biggest (that’s debatable, I suppose) acts on Fat Wreck Chords? Clearly Red Scare head Tobias Jeg did- which is likely why he quickly scooped them up for their first album (before they were even more quickly picked up by Fat). To celebrate everything that has happened to the band in the last four years, Toby has re-released the band’s very first recordings- a four song demo, newly christened Incriminating Evidence – 2011 Demos.

Of the four songs here, three of them have been re-recorded for later albums. Both “How Do I Get to You?” and “I’m in (Unrequited) Love” were included on the band’s 2012 self-titled album (the former also appeared on the band’s First Offense EP, and the latter was shortened to simply “Unrequited Love”), and “I Fought the Law (But the Law Beat the Shit Out of Me)” showed up on the band’s sophomore effort, M.I., leaving “I Plead the 5th” as the sole track to remain exclusive to this release and therefore the only “new” song of the bunch to any newcomers to the band that haven’t already heard this EP.

For a demo recording, the production is solid here. It’s not as slick-sounding as M.I., but it’s on par with First Offense and maybe even Masked Intruder, so it’s curious as to why these songs are labeled as demos (also worth noting: these versions don’t sound all that different from their studio counterparts). Some might be disappointed with the lack of material that hasn’t already been re-recorded, but Incriminating Evidence provides a lot of support that Masked Intruder has always had a strong sense of bubblegum pop melodies, and maybe that, gimmick or not, they were destined for success from the start.
