Blink-182 are NOT Breaking Up

Over the past couple of days rumors have been swirling that pop-punk icons, Blink-182, are heading once again towards splits-ville. Those rumors have been further stoked by the numerous injuries and illnesses faced by drummer Travis Barker and guitarist/singer Tom DeLonge over the past couple of months that have forced the pop-punk trio to cancel various shows.

Well, bassist/singer Mark Hoppus has shot down Blink-breakup rumors in a tweet this morning. Check out Hoppus’ tweet after the jump.

Mark Hoppus tweeted,

don’t believe the internet. blink-182 is not breaking up.

Blink-182 went on an indefinite hiatus in 2005 after years of tension split the trio. Following a 2004 tour supporting Blink’s self-titled record, tensions came to a head and Tom DeLonge declined to record a new album with the band, wanting to spend more time with his family. Hoppus and Travis Barker formed the pop-rock outfit, +44, solidifying Blink’s long-term break. The trio reformed in 2009 and released their sixth album, Neighborhoods, in 2011.
