Last fall, blink-182 had to cancel a tour due to drummer Travis Barker's continued medical issues. That included Chicago's Riot Fest, who said they plan to have blink-182 back to headline the 2019 festival, and blink have now confirmed a headlining slot at another festival happening much sooner.
It's the second annual Back To The Beach, which is presented by Travis Barker, Goldfinger's John Feldmann, and KROQ, and it goes down April 27 & 28 at Huntington State Beach In Southern California. The lineup also includes The Wonder Years, Anthony Green, Goldfinger, Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto, The Aquabats, Save Ferris, The English Beat, Less Than Jake, Teenage Wrist, and more. Tickets go on sale Friday (1/25) at 10 AM Pacific. Full lineup and poster below. This fest is in addition to Travis Barker's Musink festival (which blink are not playing this year).
blink-182 are currently working on their new album, and just last week they were in the studio recording with The Chainsmokers. Mark Hoppus also says he has another new project coming up, but he's not spilling the beans on what it will entail.
blink-182's most recent album is 2016's California, their first recorded with co-frontman Tom DeLonge's replacement Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio). In case you missed it, read: blink-182 Albums Ranked Worst To Best.
