Blink-182 Release Mark, Tom, And Travis Merch For 30th Anniversary

Californian pop-punk outfit Blink-182 have celebrated their 30th anniversary with the release of a new merch line featuring their classic lineup. The new line of designs was shared on the group’s social media accounts this morning, coinciding with the 1st August date that Blink-182’s original members first joined forces.

The new merch drop features a 30th-anniversary tour poster designed by Munk One, a t-shirt featuring the cast of Workaholics with the line “I miss the old Blink-182”, a shower curtain and a zip-up hoodie. The range also includes a set of Funko bobbleheads, which were teased last week in the lead-up to the announcement.

But despite the new merch, many longtime fans are seemingly reading between the lines and asking if the anniversary celebrations have anything to do with a potential reunion with guitarist Tom DeLonge. “Announce Tom,” one fan wrote over on Instagram. “Just bring back TOM,” echoed another.

Having co-founded Blink-182 with Mark Hoppus in August 1992, DeLonge remained with the band until departing in 2015 to focus on both his Angels & Airwaves project and non-musical activities. DeLonge was replaced by Alkaline Trio guitarist Matt Skiba that same year, though just last month, Skiba said he was unsure if he was still a member of the group.

Some fans have also noted that DeLonge has updated his social media bio to include mention of Blink-182, though the meaning of this is currently unclear. As it stands, Blink-182 have made no official statement in regards to their current lineup, with their merchandise announcement serving as their only acknowledgement of their 30th anniversary to date.
