Kath Bloom

Kath Bloom, the cult folk singer who got her start in the '70s and has seen a resurgence in recent years, will release the followup to 2010's Thin Thin Line this year. The new album is called Pass Through Here, and will be out on February 6 via Chapter Music (pre-order), and we've got the premiere of its new single "Let The Music Come" in this post. This follows lead single "Criminal Side," and both have Kath staying true to the kind of authentic folk that made her a beloved cult artist in the first place. It's timeless-sounding stuff, as you can hear for yourself below.

Album artwork, tracklist, and a couple upcoming West Coast dates, also below...

Today, the Travis Barker-presented Musink Festival was announced for March 20-22 in Costa Mesa, CA with Bad Religion, Rancid, Yelawolf, OFF!, Sick of It All, Ignite and Travis's own band billed as blink-182 w/ Matt Skiba (who you may know as the frontman of Alkaline Trio).

It's billed that way because, as reports, Tom Delonge has quit blink-182:

"We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason. A week before we were scheduled to go in to the studio we got an email from his manager explaining that he didn't want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors." Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus plan to honor all Blink-182 commitments including the Musink Festival and are excited to have singer/guitarist Matt Skiba join them for this project. "No hard feelings, but the show must go on for our fans." Additionally, Skiba will continue to make new music and tour with the Alkaline Trio.
Tom also quit via an email from his manager in 2005, but the band didn't continue without him that time. The Mark... Matt, and Travis show?

UPDATE: Tom is now saying that he didn't quit the band. He posted the following:

To all the fans, I never quit the band. I actually was on a phone call about a blink 182 event for New York City at the time all these weird press releases started coming in... Apparently those releases were 'sanctioned' from the band. Are we dysfunctional- yes. But, Christ..... #Awkward #BabyBackRibs
"The ONLY truth here is that I have commitments that limit my availability this year. I love Blink-182 and I'm not leaving," he added, to Entertainment Weekly.

UPDATE 2: Mark and Travis open up about in a new very revealing interview with Rolling Stone. Travis says "I think he's just bummed because Mark and I were finally honest," and "It's hard to cover for someone who's disrespectful and ungrateful." Read more here.

Tickets to see "blink-182 w/ Matt Skiba" and other bands at Musink Fest go on sale at 10 AM PST on Friday (1/30). Full lineup below...
