Now with 100% more Matt Skiba!
With Tom DeLonge out of the Blink 182 power trio, the band tapped Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba to play guitar and sing. The band is weeks (maybe a couple months) away from a new single and a new record is in the pipe (maybe summer?). And it looks like there will also be shows.
despite the rumors online, there is no blink-182 show at sxsw this year. real tour dates will be announced in the near future. smiley face.— dadpool (@markhoppus) March 10, 2016
Alkaline Trio was a band I used to jam a ton. Here a couple songs if you’re not familiar. This one is from 2001. I first saw this video on a Vagrant records DVD music video compilation and then ran out to buy From Here to Infirmary.
They had a couple minor radio hits in the mid-2000s like this one.
Matt Skiba also put out some solo stuff. I’m a sucker for that acoustic punk stuff.
