Blink 182 Not Staying Together for the Kids

Blink-182

The pop-punk act Blink 182 has announced that they are going on an 'indefinite hiatus.' Rumors began surfacing that Blink had broken up after they unexpectedly pulled out of the 'Music for Relief: Rebuilding South Asia' benefit.


Confirming recent speculation that something was amiss in the Blink-182 camp, the band today announced it was going on an indefinite hiatus "to spend some time enjoying the fruits of their labors with loved ones." In a statement, the trio added, "While there is no set plan for the band to begin working together again, no one knows what tomorrow may bring."

Rumors that the band had split began circulating after Friday's all-star tsunami benefit concert in Anaheim, Calif. Blink was scheduled to play but pulled out of at the last minute due to "unexpected circumstances."


Fuel was added to the flames when Dave Navarro, who performed at the benefit with his cover band Camp Freddy, posted on his blog that Blink didn't perform because they had broken up. He later clarified his posting, saying, "I shouldn't repeat things that aren't confirmed and I apologize to the band and their fans. Honestly, it was a mistake."

Blink's four studio albums and one live set have sold a combined 10.7 million copies in the United States to date.
