When Blink-182 releases its next album, it won't be on Interscope. The band has officially parted ways with the record label after 15 yearss. Blink-182's Tom Delonge tweeted the news last week, writing the band "as of today, is an independent artist."
Blink-182 Mark Hoppus confirmed the news to MTV News, explaining that it was time to move on. He said, "The reasons for us not working together are many and varied, but mostly we wish them luck in everything in their future, and thank those there who've worked so hard on Blink-182 throughout the years."
He added, "As far as labels, to be honest, we've been holding our breath waiting for final word from the attorneys that our contract with Interscope had ended. Now the future's a wide-open door. We're lucky to be in a position where, after 20 years in our band, we can be independent and open to all options. It's a very exciting time here. I feel like our band is in the best place it's been in a long time. I mean, just look at my hair!"
