Tom is thinking about touring LOVE in 2014 now..i think something is up with blink.

I don't understand why tour an album that's 2 years old at this point.....Granted when AVA tours it's usual a month at most, their tours are NEVER very long and honestly i feel like Tom's hardly toured AVA since Blink got back together.


 


I think there's some serious lack of motivation on Blink to do anything. I won't be surprised if they cancelled the UK tour again because they're to lazy to get together and record new music. I hope i'm wrong but i'm not holding my breath for anything new this year despite what crap Mark feeds us.

I take it as a good thing.  When tom starts posting shit about AVA it usually means something else is in the works with Blink. He doesn't like 

 

AVA being over shadowed.

Yeah, I'm leaning towards then canceling everything at this point. Seems like there's tension again.

 

For once i honestly feel like it's Mark that is bringing the band down but not living in the same damn country, i truly believe it's hurting this band. I've always been a bigger Mark fan then a Tom fan but that has started changing for me over the last couple years. Mark just seems like a complete and utter douche now days. At this point it is getting a bit concerning considering NONE of them have even mentioned starting to work on the next record.

They really don't which is a damn shame....They get all hyped up and get excited about Blink again then the break away and lose that motivation.

I don't even blame Tom anymore TBH....I truly feel Mark living in a different country is what kills the good vibe. I mean he's showing no signs of coming over here and living in hotels like he claimed in interviews he did when they announced Reading/Leeds. I actually think Tom's done a good job at balancing both bands.

That's a lot of assumptions there.. How do you know Mark isn't compliying to Blink? Just cause he moved away a few years ago? He did a feature in Kerrang about blink, so I don't see what you're saying.

yeah, not quite sure how tom posting an image of himself touring AVA and teasing a possible tour means doom and destruction for the band. AVA has hardly toured since the band reunited. depending on whether the album or tour comes first, there's really nothing to be concerned about. i think people are looking for a reason to convince themselves blink's through.

I don't know, it's just pure speculation. I just don't see any motivation from any of them at the moment. And let's face it Mark being in London does NOT help them in anyway shape or form. Also that feature he just did in Kerrang was completely stupid most of those questions he could of just answered via a twitter Q&A.

It just gets fans worried because no one is showing signs of working on Blink anytime soon. Also the fact that he said a "Love tour" means they won't be touring a new album...Now unless they're planning a tour after Blinks UK tour whatever...But i'm still not expecting any music this year from them...Mark can try and convince us a million times there will be but i personally think he's just kidding himself.

 

Also none of us are convinced their through, the only one who is is Oliver and he's had that thought since the reunion. I just don't think were getting any new music from them this year.....

Not really related to the discussion of Blink's future, but...


I spent a few hours driving the other day and listened to Dude Ranch from start to finish. Man, that album is the epitome of Blink. Immature lyrics that bear a serious undertone, catchy riffs and hard fast songs, strong friendship between band members, and creativity based on being a humble new band that doesn't really care what people think or how they're perceived. Makes me sad how far they've strayed from that, but it's understandable why they can't produce music like that anymore.

^ dude ranch will always be my all-time favorite. 


 


i can't imagine how blink boards were before social media. just because we can't see mark's inbox or every discussion among them doesn't mean they aren't putting together plans or working. we knew nothing about the untitled shows and suddenly it came out of nowhere. i expect the same with something like this

Mark still posts stuff about nostalgic blink on his Instagram, so it's clearly on his mind. I just think Mark and Tom are at odds on terms of how to handle each other's schedule and be diplomatic.
