Now with Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio) joining ‘blink-182’as singer/guitarist, the group starts a new chapter. Skiba debuted with ‘blink-182’ in March 2015 with a live performance at the MusInk Tattoo and Music Festival. Early in 2016, Skiba finally entered the studio with Hoppus and Barker. Although the band had written over 30 songs in the months before the sessions, once they started working with producer John Feldmann they started all over.
