Blink-182 to record with Skiba

Blink-182 will record with Matt Skiba next month, Mark Hoppus has said.

Alkaline Trio singer Skiba fronted the band for a handful of shows earlier this year, after Tom DeLonge’s acrimonious split with the group.

The possibility of studio sessions had been discussed, with Travis Barker saying in March: “If we did make an album with Skiba it would be unreal. There’s a vibe in the rehearsal room that we haven’t had in a long time.”

Now Billboard reports: “The threesome, with Skiba replacing DeLonge, will head back to the studio in August.”

Details will be revealed in due course.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
