Tom DeLonge Says He Didn’t Quit Blink-182

Estevan Oriol/DGCHold off on those reports that Tom DeLonge has left Blink-182.

In a post on his Facebook page Monday afternoon, the guitarist insisted that he didn't quit the band. He wrote, "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....."

His rep released a similar statement in which DeLonge is quoted as saying, "The ONLY truth here is that I have commitments that limit my availability this year. I love Blink-182 and I’m not leaving.”

Earlier in the day, a publicist for Blink-182 reportedly put out a statement in which DeLonge's bandmates, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker, claimed DeLonge "didn't want to participate in any Blink-182 projects indefinitely, but would rather work on his other non-musical endeavors." The statement was reported on by multiple outlets.

Blink-182 has lined up a replacement for DeLonge for their just-announced headlining set at the Musink Tattoo & Music Festival in Los Angeles on March 22: Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba.

Hoppus and Barker have yet to publicly comment on DeLonge's statements.
