BLINK 182 RESCHEDULE EUROPEAN TOUR [CONFIRMED]


Recommended Posts

screw AVA, screw travis' solo record........

if they really cared, they'd get the record done.  It's not that hard.  it really isn't, and they're complicating a process that should really be quite easy.  Get in a room together and hash it and out make it work together in terms of writing.  It's ok i guess to record in separate studios, but for the love of god, songwriting is always better when you're in a room together with guitars looking at each other critiquing straight up what the other guy has just presented to you.  That way you get real, complete feedback and things come out properly.  Instead, what we have is them meeting ONCE a week to discuss stuff then going to their separate corners of the universe to record and re-write only to regroup again a week later or whatever.  Everyone's sick of the stories and old wives' tales they keep spinning, give us a clip of a song or some kinda real, legit explanation.  Cut the PR crap and tell us the truth.  No band besides GNR puts their fans through so much crap with telling half-truths and messing with everything so much.

They do not meet up once a week. I would bet that Mark and Tom have seen each other maybe 4 or 5 times this year.

Blink is bigger than any of these three guys. Blink makes them. It's the only reason they are relevant at all. It's the only reason Travis can work with rappers and the only reason Mark can have a TV show and the only reason Tom can sit in his living room writing space music.

Show it some respect for fucks sake. Show the fans who paid your bills some respect. You didn't get popular because of musical talent, you got popular because fans embraced you.

The more I think about it and had time to cool down about the news, this has been in the works for awhile.  There is no way that this was happened in the last few days or last week.  This has been planned for a month or two. Especially with having to reschedule all those dates for next year and for the festivals to announce new bands.  They said week or so ago that the album was planned for summer and I think that will happen.  I don't think anything changed that the last few weeks.

I agree. Doesn't change how poorly they handled the situation though.

You are right about that.  I think they need to clarify more what their plans are than just saying releasing record later this year.

Sometimes I don't think blink realizes the heat they are getting from the fan base. They truly are at risk of not only losing fans, but destroying their legacy.

If they gave two shits at all about what fans thought, they would be releasing more than just a stupid statement and a "beyond bummed" tweet.

Give us some clips of new music, give us a date for a single, give us a date for blinkumentary, give us their touring plans after canceling the Euro one....ANYTHING. Actually, fuck that. Give us a new damn song, right now, for free, no bull shit. If it doesn't make the album or isn't that good, it's not the end of the world. They can survive a bad demo posted online for fuck's sake.

If people like Kanye and the Foo Fighters, and even smaller bands like TBS can post new music with no bull shit attached, blink should be able to.

I want a damn song. Fuckkk this "patience and understanding" crap.

i was just watching this video from back in november and mark talks about this very same thing at just after 6 minutes in. and he provides a small explanation for why they can't and that's the label.

I cant say I am upset since I wasnt going to see a show anyone, I am really bummed for the people that already spent money on it though.  That is bullshit.  I try to look at things with a glass half full outlook so here hoping they really start working on the album and get it done. 

Also it just kills me what blink is doing to their legacy with this shit.

honestly i'd rather have a new album then see them live again

That's not really the point.

This tour was supposed to be the first tour after they finished the album.  They promised to be done and have new songs for this tour.  Not to cancel the tour because they didn't have new songs.

They cancelled the tour because the album isn't finished when they've had 2 years to complete it.  It's fuckin bullshit.

To be honest, I feel bad for Mark. He seems like the only one who gives two shits about the band, and I honestly think he just took the Fuse job because Tom and Travis were doing their own thing anyways. He needed to fill up his time somehow, I mean fuck, I've seen more posts from him about doing guitars for the blink record than Tom himself.
