  1. Probably just stock audio from all the yelling the did with California.

  4. Actually, Matt fans know when he's more erratic on socials it's usually a bad sign, that's kind of the point. He's weird yes, but he's been a bit more than weird than he normally is recently.

  5. It’s just Matt’s humour. Some people won’t get it but that’s fine. He’s just having a laugh. It doesn’t seem like there’s that many people bothered by it anyway.

  9. No, Ampeg stopped making them in 1995. They are getting harder to find due to the hype built around the fact that Tom used these back in the day (sorry about that!). If you do get a chance to purchase one, jump on it. Similar to Davey, I use a lower end Marshall cabinet as well (200 watt valvestate 4x12). It’s ultimately down to what sounds good to you. I may invest in an actual Marshall 1960 cabinet but what I have now gets the job done just fine. This is correct. Tom bought the 1002 and the matching 4x12 together in 1995, then swapped for the Marshall 4x12 after the goodtimes to

  10. I wouldn't mind seeing Blink put to bed. Bring back +44 or do the side project thing for a while. I'd like to see them do some one without restraints to genre or style.

  11. i bought the lower-end marshall cab to save a little cash. in the future i will probably invest in an actual 1960 reissue which is the one tom is using in the above photo at an off the record in-store appearance in san diego in 1996. he appears to have bought the ampeg head with the matching ampeg cab, but once he got the marshall he used it live exclusively until he made changes to his rig in late 96/early 97. cabinets are about three things in terms of sound quality: the actual cones (subwoofers), the wood construction, and the architectonics / volumetrics of the box itself which the sp

  13. I don’t mind the new song. Lyrics are kind of a throwaway for me. Not offensive, not impressive.. just whatever. musically, I’m into it. Definitely has a darker sound like bad religion or the offspring. Very skatepunk. The harmonies in the chorus as also very reminiscent of bad religion. I dig it. You can tell the difference in production from Nine/Cali also. For better or worse, you decide. last thing I want to add- new logo is much better than the previous one, in my humble opinion. Much cleaner.

  14. i follow him on insta and just assumed he has mental health issues (not in the way we assume tom does). i have friends who act similarly on social media when they're off their meds. when he starts channeling crispin glover, you know something's up. i also don't know him at all and am not a medical professional so idk.

  15. I dont like it. Maybe it will grow on me but right now I think its the song I have enjoyed the least since Cali. The melody seems so forced to me, doenst sound natural in the delivery

  16. The crazy thing is that I remember him saying in an track- by-track interview for Cali that joining blink was a beginning of a new chapter after he was going through some tough shit. (Believe he was referering to his divorce and My Shame Is True by AK3), but from the looks of it he seems to be even worse now. I mean you should never conclude to much judgning by peoples look, but even though his style has always been a little "out-there" I think the scenes now are surpassing it. He's been playing in a smaller band for the majority of his career - if something is wrong I think its the extreme f

  17. Have you got a link to Mark mentioning Matt’s sobriety? That’s genuinely worrying. He doesn’t seem like the kind that can just have a little and that last radio show stream they did he definitely looked coked up.

  21. Personally, I would agree but didn’t know how much of a bold statement that would be on here. Mark has had some pretty great lyrics during the 2000s but I would say Justin is more consistent. One of my favorite things about MCS is how Justin is able to write some relatable and occasionally goofy lyrics but is still able to sound profound without some unnecessarily deep and cryptic metaphor. I may be wrong because he still writes some cryptic shit every once in a while but he’s much more literal in a sense then others. Same thing goes to Mark in some capacity but there’s been a definite quality

  22. Justin Pierre is a muuuch better lyricist than Mark. Justin's one of the best lyricists in the genre, man's a straight up poet.

  23. Justin Pierre was like the only other guy I could see actually replacing Tom. Has a fantastic voice and range that could suit Tom-centric songs, decent guitar player, incredible lyricist on par with (prime) Mark, and has experience working with Mark in the studio. Obviously if that happened I would hope that they start a new band because it would be kind of ridiculous to pull a Journey and have a revolving door of frontmen. Gonna nerd out here but realistically it ain’t gonna happen since MCS is like 50% active right now due to the band becoming fathers so I doubt Justin would even be availabl

  24. Yea for sure. I was never saying that a divorce wouldn’t be taxing on someone, just saying it’s been done a while, he’s been with his new woman for a while, so I didn’t think it was a factor for taking up his time these days

  25. Assuming you are right with that it’s still a huge burden mentally. I can easily see that a divorce effects him from making music for quite some time. But as said before, the album should be released by now. Classic Tom/Blink behavior when it comes to announcements.

  28. No Amepg doesn't make them anymore. As for a cab (they're speaker cabs not amps), save up for a Mesa Rectifier 4x12 with Vintage 30s or a Marshall 1960 4x12 with GT-12-75s. Buy nice, don't buy twice if you can swing it. When you hook your amp head to the cab, make sure you have the correct ohms hooked up.

  30. Honestly, the crap that’s been the blink 182 the last few years made me appreciate ava a hell of a lot more than I did prior. I can honestly rank ava ahead of blink currently. Along with most other bands.

  35. It'd be really cool if we got Mark and Travis collaborating with different people including Tom, Skiba and Feldmann.

  36. Well, it has been 5 years. He has gone above and beyond his call of duty, which was originally just to fill in for awhile. He never really attempted or wanted to stake his own kind of claim to the band. Has just been a soldier of productivity. I guess I just have the gut instinct that it's time to move on to something different for both parties.

  37. I would be fine if Mark and Travis moved on without Skiba. He helped save the band, played his role great, but it may be coming time to part ways.

  38. @Kelso55 looks 2002-2003, would've been right after Mark switched back to his normal sig and back to "Mark Hoppus" (his MH STAR thing was right before this). Wish I could see it a bit better but I do like it from what I can see. Here's an authentic for reference:

  40. I don't buy the "Matt didn't have the recording space to pitch in for this song" argument. Can't you buy a USB cord that plugs your guitar into your computer for like $30 and record that way?

  43. Very cool! The Dammit version was always my favorite since that’s where I first saw the guitar. And convinced me to sticker up a few of my own axes I’m willing to admit that this guitar is 100% responsible for my taste in music. Without checking out the bands on it, I wouldn’t know about the smaller obscure SoCal bands (Rhythm Collision), hardcore (Gorilla Biscuits), and the Fat/Epitaph bands. For me it opened the doors to a lot of great music.
