Travis Barker On Blink 182 Breaking Up

Here's a KROQ interview with Travis Barker (ASF) in which he say's that Blink 182 are just taking a break - while announcing a new CD with The Transplants and going on the Warped tour in June with them. So no break for Travis then. It does sound (to me anyway) like the end of the road for Blink - the fact that Blink 182 have announced this break when they've taken them unannounced in the past, the no definite plans to get back together and the fact they cancelled their appearance at a tsunami fund raising gig at the last minute just seem like the break ups of so many other bands.

Box Car Racer were also mentioned in the interview - fingers crossed we hear something new from them too. I'm sure we'll definitely hear from Blink again in the future - but maybe not as Blink 182 but in collaborations like the Transplants, Box Car Racer, Rancid or some band that we haven't heard of yet.

I suspect the writing has been on the wall for a couple of years now. It goes back to Tom's 18 month break from the band for back surgery (A.K.A. Boxcar Racer)which caused a big fall out with Mark as he had no one to play with, so to speak, while Travis was off with The Transplants.

I'm just glad we finally got to see them - even if they weren't as mental live as we'd wanted.
