The Official, Comprehensive Blink-182 Timeline

Recommended Posts

I remember being super worried when BCR came out, I was stoked to hear about the Pop disaster tour, and even if I had only been a blink fan for around six months, I was super worried about the state of the band until the news of a new album came in late 2002, I was so relieved back then, because I thought Tom and Travis having a project without Mark was a terrible idea.

hmm, appears my main post is too long. moving some of it here, though i'd rather it be collected somehow in one main thing.

 

i remember there being talk of rebooting the whole forum/site not long ago, maybe when that happens we can spin this off into it's own page or something? not a forum post, but like, a side-section on the main page. i have no idea. all i know is that this is shaping up nicely to be a super document of blink's history.

10/23/2014:

  • Tom to Diffuser.fm: "I think the goal is to get working hard on a [blink] record by the end of the year and we just have to figure out really, where and how, because we're in different locations. But, I'll know more in a couple weeks."

10/31/2014:

12/1/2014:

  • Tom to Gibson: "Blink 182 isn't that time-consuming. We don't do too much stuff. [...] We're in different locations, so it's not something we're doing full-time."

12/18/2014: Tom essentially calls Blink his second priority in a Gigwise interview: "I naturally write at this point in my life like Angels & Airwaves, but I really love to re-visit where I came from. I love to play Blink music. It's enormously fun and second nature to me."

12/24/2014: The band signs a record deal. In Mark and Travis's Rolling Stone tell-all, Mark says: "We had been talking about where we wanted to record, what producers we want to use, what day we want to start."

In Mark and Travis's Rolling Stone tell-all, Mark says: "On December 30th, we get an e-mail from Tom's manager saying that he has no interest in recording and that he wants to do his other, non-musical stuff and that he's out indefinitely."

Where did that last Mark quote come from? 

 

Also, unless you misquoted he said "Upcoming sets" ...plural. More than just Musink.

it's cited there. it's originally from the blink-182 collectors' group on facebook, which i've yet to find. but multiple members reported it here

When Mark said "sets," he was most likely referring to rehearsal sets.  It seems like they are going over multiple mock-up sets during practice.  We've all been debating whether or not the set Travis posted last week is the final one for the show, or is just the particular practice set they were working on that day.

I don't know where to put this, but Tom wrote this right before the launch of his news single. He answered questions on Instagram with some fans.
