Blink-182 are supposedly talking about a new album in the works as well as a tour with A Day to Remember. Travis Barker recently sat down with Billboard Magazine for an interview where he said, “There are talks of all sorts of things,” and “There’s talk of maybe recording an album, there are talks of doing a tour with A Day To Remember, so we’ll see what happens.” A Day to Remember just opened up for Blink-182’s very first show with Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio) and the very first Blink show since Tom Delonge’s “departure.” You can read some more of the interview with Travis Barker below.

Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba made his debut as the new guitarist/vocalist of Blink-182 last night with an intimate show at the Roxy in Hollywood, CA. If you weren’t able to make it out, you’re in luck because it’s 2015 and everyone films everything with their smartphones, and this show was no exception.
You can watch a couple videos and check out the setlist from the band’s first performance with Skiba below.
In case you’re wondering why Matt Skiba is playing guitar and singing for Blink-182, it’s because the band recently parted ways with Tom DeLonge, who will soon be releasing a solo album titled To The Stars. Those out of the loop can find more info here, here, and here.

Yesterday, we posted a list of punk-ish (I say ‘punk-ish’ because some of the stuff wasn’t really what one would call ‘punk’…cough cough New Found Glory cough) love songs that have been released within the past year in honor of Valentine’s Day. And as always, those who don’t care to read that ever-so-long paragraph describing the list left outraged comments about how we didn’t include (insert name of 20-year-old song here). So I thought it’d be wise to give you ladies and gents what you obviously want and compile a list of songs people bitched at us for not including, despite the fact that they didn’t meet said list’s criteria.
Check it out below, and try not to bitch too much about how we left out one of the 20 Jawbreaker songs you wanted. Also, have a merry Valentine’s Day.

Chicago punk veterans Rise Against posted a cryptic picture of a 7″ with a blank white label on their Facebook page earlier today. The photo’s caption – “???#rsd#staytuned#riseagainst” – suggests the band will be releasing a 7″ of some sort this Record Store Day (April 18th).
That’s all the info we’ve got right now, but we’ll keep you posted as more details come to light. Rise Against’s latest album The Black Market was released last July through Interscope Records.
“I love writing music and I do it every day. I’m driven to do it and if a day goes by and I don’t write music, I feel weird. I just don’t take breaks so, believe me, I have a lot of output.”
We’ll keep you posted as more details on the next AFI record come to light. The band last released Burials, their first album in four years, on October 22, 2013 through Republic Records.

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.

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.

“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.”
UPDATE: Tom DeLonge has posted a statement denying he has left the band. Click here to read it.
UPDATE #2: 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.

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.

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.
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.

The album will officially drop tomorrow, December 9th, via To The Stars Records and serves as a follow-up to the Stomping the Phantom Brake Pedal EP, which was released in January 2013, also via To The Stars. Their last full-length album was 2011′s Love: Part Two.
