Matt Skiba says he hopes to become permanent member of Blink-182

In a recent interview, Matt Skiba talked about the possibility of becoming a permanent member of Blink-182, stating that he thinks recording a new album with the band would “seal the deal.” Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Alternative Nation:

When I spoke to Travis last month, he described the process as very positive and even considered writing an album with this new lineup. What are your thoughts on that idea?

I think that’s a great idea and it’s something we have discussed. I’m pleasantly surprised to see Travis mention it to you guys. It’s something I would be very excited to do and I’ve known the Blink guys for about fifteen years and we’ve become good friends. Playing songs I haven’t written with Mark and Travis is a blast, so to go in and create music with them would be amazing.

As of now, do you view yourself as a permanent member of the band?

I think it’s too soon to know. I’m about to go on an Alkaline Trio tour for a couple months. There’s some time and some things that those guys need to figure out before we can start saying I’m a permanent member. But that is a hope of mine. If we’re discussing recording an album, I think that seals the deal. But, we shall see, only time can tell.

In case you’re wondering why Matt Skiba is involved in Blink-182, it’s because the band parted ways with longtime guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge on not-so-amicable terms earlier this year. Those out of the loop can find more info on the situation here, here, and here.
