Tom DeLonge Quits Blink-182 (Band's Statement)

Tom DeLonge, the longtime guitarist of Blink-182, has made the decision to leave the band.

The news was revealed by the band's remaining members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker.

"We were all set to play this festival and record a new album and Tom kept putting it off without reason," the boys said in a statement (via THR), adding: "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. No hard feelings, but the show must go on for our fans."

DeLonge, 39, will be replaced for the moment by Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio for the band's performance at the 2015 Music and Tattoo Festival.
