  1. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    i don't think it was an emergency surgery. more likely it was scheduled, just like their appearance at musink. so it probably won't affect his voice. (a throat surgery usually has an effect on the vocal chords when they do it orally.)
  2. Old Demo Inserts?

    demo #2 insert does not exist.

    other tagged people: jake lowry: http://www.musicweek.com/management/read/blink-182-management-firm-cardiff-giant-hires-jake-lowry/071447 allison mcgregor: https://www.facebook.com/allison.mcgregor.75?lst=100014813317530%3A632372192%3A1518530629 etc. all of them works for blink as manager, tour manager assistance, creative director... so they certainly did a promo thing. photoshoot or interview. i have a feeling they will announce a new album very soon, hopefully they'll write it as the 2003 album.

    based on matt's instagram posts they're probably filming a docu or a music video, and they spray paint the walls to make b-roll footage (and to have some attention on social media).

    travis just posted this insta story:

    i wish they would leak the unedited footage. i'm not that interested in the edited version.
  7. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    it's the same old clip we've seen as a teaser when they planned to release it.
  8. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    the incomes from album sales are mostly (completely) royalties, so only those get money who are credited. on the other hand tom gets some from the merch sales, even if it's a california themed t-shirt.
  9. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    the band's name is a trademark or copyrighted brand held by the company behind the band (viking wizard eyes llc). so in a legal way tom is not personally connected to the name usage. he can be an authorised person who could use the name, but at the moment he is clearly not one (he could not release his alleged blink demos as blink or he can't print blink t-shirts, etc). that's why i guess there's no such thing as a percentage for the name usage... it happens on another level: they use the name on a t-shirt design or somewhere, and when it's sold, the company gets the profit, then the company members got their yearly or monthly dividend. so the name usage is just a small part of the whole thing.
  10. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    tom definitely got royalties for the songs written by him when those were played at show, and obviously for past album sales, but by default he deserves nothing else as royalty. if he's still part of the blink company, he may get a percentage (dividend) of all incomes. i don't think he can get money for the blink name. but it's company policy. they probably have an agreement/contract about who can legally perform as "blink-182". tom may asked for money to let the mark+matt+travis trio use the name, but i guess it was just a one-off thing, not a continuous revenue.
  11. Breakdown of all the small things

    it's funny that people who tend to say things like two songs are "identical" if they have the same chord progression now are in awe that they discovered 2 notes that change everything. maybe there are other overlooked songs that have something in the background you haven't noticed yet. of course jerry finn was a much better producer than feldmann. we don't even need to compare them. but it's just lazy to say that songs of the california era are all crap. i bet if we would start to overanalyze those songs one by one we'd find some interesting moments in every one of them. (i can agree that as a whole the california albums can be repetitive, they overused some patterns and tried the same thing in 2 or 3 songs. but if we check them out separately one by one, well, none of them is that bad.) the biggest problem with california is the sugar-coated mixing. i don't think it should have been done by a 22 years old mixer who only worked with bands like 5 seconds of summer.
  12. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    my favorite moment in always is the variation at the end of the second pre-chorus where they change the rhythm of "here i am" and mark adds an extra higher note for "ready-y". and the way they recorded the second verse is so great, especially at "your laugh". they wanted to make it echo-ish, but instead of a simple filter, they double tracked it with an earlier demo to have a slight difference, and an awesome harmony just born. (but i always hated mark's "u-u" vocals in the chorus. it should have been done with lower volume and/or synth.)
  13. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    But this discussion has no relevancy when nothing happens. It's like saying "I don't want Russia to colonize Mars", and bitching about it every other day... It's not even a plan (for blink to make shitty music; or for Russia to colonize Mars). So why is it so important to turn everything into this discussion? And even if it would be somehow interesting (and not just the replay of the past months), why does it always come from the negative point of view? I bet Matt and Mark are capable to write great songs. Should I say "they need to hire Tom, because the current blink has lost it" just to emphasize my hopes that a new album will be good? Or should I talk about forgotten pieces of year-old interviews as if they happened today? All this talking is simple hostility. Today's kids are all about it, they haven't learned to be constructive, they're just criticizing everything to have their voice. A while ago most people on these boards looked more mature than this, now it's strange to me that this stupid trend rules everything here too.

    "Hey guys, I find it odd that Matt is still shy when he's asked about blink. Does it mean he's not an official member?" No, it doesn't mean it. He's an official member of blink. Also, he's shy because he became the new co-frontman of a band with 20+ years of history, which isn't an easy situation, and he gets a lot of complain from idiots who think "Tom is better". Tom, who hasn't worked together with Mark and Travis in the past 14 years. Or did we forget it? (They hated each other on the 2004 tour, they broke up for 4-5 years, they toured for years, but they only spent time with each other when they were on stage, they recorded Neighborhoods separately, Tom recorded Dogs Eating Dogs on his own, etc.) The "Tom is better" and the "Tom is still a member" arguments are pointless. For him blink was just a side business since 2005.
  15. The blink 182 general discussion topic

    We all know you just want to complain about Matt, and want Tom back. In one hand it is boring, and on the other hand it's far from reality. I don't know what you expect from them at this point. Do you want them to send you an official statement about their status every time you fantasize of blink being broken up? Or when they're still not reuniting with Tom? They announced it a few times that Matt is an official member. At the moment they are not actively working on an album, they are not on tour, they are old lazy bastards, so there are no news. Bands work like this these days. Why would it mean there's a change in the lineup?
