“There is no news to share. There are no announcements. Today is 30 years of blink-182!” he has answered.
Hoppus later added, “If and when Blink has an announcement about anything, you’ll hear it through official Blink-182 outlets. Not teased on a radio station like ‘listen to a major announcement …Tom tagged Mark in a photo from two decades ago.'”
DeLonge sparked speculation over the weekend by sharing a photo of himself with Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker. He also updated his Instagram bio to acknowledge Blink-182.

However, Skiba admitted to a fan last month that he was unsure whether he would still be in the group.
“Your guess is as good as mine,” he responded to a fan’s Instagram comment. “Anyway, I’m very proud and grateful for the time I spent with Blink 182. We’ll see…”
