Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker has a bit more to say about guitarist and band founder Tom DeLonge’s departure from the band.  Barker sat down with the DJs of radio station KROQ’s The Kevin and Bean Show to go into some more detail.  He also talks about his Musink Festival, Dave Grohl, and the future of Blink 182 with their new guitarist (and Alkaline Trio frontman) Matt Skiba.  You can listen to the segment here.

Good news for Blaqk Audio fans; album #3 is in the works!

In a new interview that appeared on The Sunset Strip, Davey Havok had this to say regarding the electronica duo that also includes his AFI bandmate, Jade Puget:

And Jade and I, we’re done writing the new Blaqk Audio record; so we should be recording [that] very soon I would hope… And I would imagine that would come out this year as well.

Blaqk Audio’s last album, “Bright Black Heaven,” was released back in September 2012 on Superball Music. No word on why they spelled “black” correctly in the title.

Tom DeLonge now claims that he never quit Blink 182

Posted by hayley on Monday, January 26, 2015 at 1:55 PM (PST)

So a few hours ago, we posted the earth shattering news that Tom Delonge had quit Blink-182 and that the band would be touring with Matt Skiba as a temporary replacement.

Well now apparently Tom Delonge is claiming that he never actually quit the band. In a somewhat (very) bizarre instagram post, he had the following to say:

To all the fans, I never quit the band. I actually was on a phone call about a blink 182 event for New York City at the time all these weird press releases started coming in… Apparently those releases were ‘sanctioned’ from the band. Are we dysfunctional- yes. But, Christ….. #Awkward #BabyBackRibs

I’m just as confused as you are. We’ll keep you guys updated once more details come to light. Blink-182 last self-released an EP entitled “Dogs Eating Dogs” in December of 2012 after parting ways with Interscope Records.

UPDATE: Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker have confirmed DeLonge is no longer a member of the band, and that his retaliatory statement was false. More info here.

Tom DeLonge quits Blink 182, Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio) joins the band

Posted by Lauren Mills on Monday, January 26, 2015 at 11:43 AM (PST)

Tom DeLonge has quit Blink-182 indefinitely and Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio will fill in during their festival appearance according to Blink 182′s statement:

“Matt Skiba of the Alkaline Trio will join Blink-182 in replacement of Tom DeLonge at the 8th annual Music and Tattoo festival. “We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason. A week before we were scheduled to go in to the studio we got an email from his manager explaining that he didn’t want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinetly, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors.” Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus plan to honor all Blink-182 commitments including the Musink Festival and are excited to have singer/guitarist Matt Skiba join them for this project. “No hard feelings, but the show must go on for our fans.” Additionally, Skiba will continue to make new music and tour with the Alkaline Trio.”

Blink-182 last self-released an EP entitled “Dogs Eating Dogs” in December of 2012 after parting ways with Interscope Records.

Rise Against tour with Linkin Park cancelled

Posted by jaystone on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 at 4:30 PM (PST)

Sad news for those of you that were looking forward to catching Rise Against hit the road with Linkin Park on the latter band’s headlining tour. It seems a devastating, show-related ankle injury to Linkin Park co-frontman Chester Bennington resulted in the need for emergency surgery and, thus, cancellation of the tour’s remaining sixteen shows. Refunds are available at point of purchase. We’ll keep you posted if Rise Against announce any one-off tour dates as a result of their unexpected free time.

Oh, and if you’re so inclined, head below check out video of Bennington performing in Indianapolis (the last show of the tour to actually take place) with his leg supported by a three-wheeled scooter. Entertaining, at least.

Random Cover Song: Jawbreaker – “Chasing the Wild Goose” (Bad Religion)

Posted by ChrisDude on Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 9:35 AM (PST)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today’s cover comes from long-defunct California punk legends Jawbreaker and their cover of Bad Religion‘s “Chasing the Wild Goose”. The original version appeared on Bad Religion’s long-out of print 1983 album Into the Unknown, while the Jawbreaker version did not appear on any of their albums, but was performed live occasionally in 1992.

You can listen to both versions of “Chasing the Wild Goose” below.

Video: Vocal Medley of Blink 182 songs

Posted by Johnny X on Sunday, December 21, 2014 at 11:36 AM (PST)

Two members of French ska-punk act P.O. Box, along with a couple of their friends, have put together a killer vocal arrangement of Blink 182 songs and performed them in a capella fashion for our viewing pleasure.  It’s done really, really well and is definitely worth the watch.  Check it out below.

This medley is the fourth of such tributes.  The first was a fantastic arrangement of NOFX songs, the second was of Sublime songs, the third was No Use For A Name.

According to recent reports, Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford is going to have to sit the next two to three weeks out due to a recent injury he sustained… not on the ice, but at a Rise Against show at House of Blues Chicago.

Crawford sustained a lower-body injury (whatever that means) when he “missed a step” on his way out of the show. He’s pretty embarrassed by the incident, and frustrated that he will have to sit out the team’s next few games.

This isn’t the first time the goalie has had to take a medical leave of absence this season. Back in October, he missed six games after sustaining, you guessed it, a lower-body injury. While some Blackhawks fans aren’t very happy he’s injured again, and are voicing their frustration on the band’s Facebook page, others are getting a kick of the ordeal.

Posted by kimofhearts on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at 3:31 PM (PST)

Long-defunct California punk legends Jawbreaker just shared a new video for “Boxcar” which includes unreleased footage from 1992. According to the description, the band’s drummer, Adam Pfahler,  found an unprocessed Super 8 film cartridge and had no remembrance of what it held. What it held was really cool video of the band driving around together, loading up their gear and viewing old streets in the Mission District. Check it out below.

Last month we shared with you alternate versions of “Boxcar” and “Do You Still Hate Me?”, which you can check out here.

Jawbreaker released their last album Dear You in 1995 on DGC Records before breaking up in the following year.
