Former pop-punk kids, get out your lip rings and hair gel because Blink-182 are officially getting back together.
Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, and Tom DeLonge are reuniting to bring fans brand new music and their first tour in nearly ten years.
And, no, it's just just a US tour. Blink-182 will be playing extensively across North America early next year, but soon they'll be heading to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand too - including five UK dates.
As if you weren't already hyped enough, the trio just dropped a hilarious announcement video and it's giving me proper old-school 'Take Off Your Pants And Jacket' vibes:
This tour will be Blink's biggest ever, kicking off in March 2023 through to February 2024.
The tour announcement also features a few major festival appearances in Latin America and the US, including Lollapalooza alongside co-headliners Billie Eilish and Drake, and the 2023 edition of When We Were Young festival.
To tide you over until tickets go on sale, Mark, Travis, and Tom are also set to drop their new single 'Edging' on Friday, 14 October, marking the first time in a decade that the trio have been in the studio together. Am I getting emotional over this? Yes, yes I am.
The band, who formed back in 1992, first broke up in 2005 but got back together in 2009.
Tom DeLonge decided to leave the group in 2015, but Mark and Travis kept the band going without him, enlisting the help of Alkaline Trio guitarist and singer Matt Skiba to take his place.
The new Blink-182 released the albums California and Nine, while Tom worked on his other band Angels & Airwaves and devoted his remaining time to investigating UFOs. Yes, you read that right. 'Aliens Exist', and all that.
Mark and Travis also worked on their own individual projects, too.
While Mark formed Simple Creatures with All Time Low's Alex Gaskarth, Travis collaborated with everyone from Machine Gun Kelly and Willow Smith to Avril Lavigne and Lil Nas X.
Now, it looks like the core three have reconnected, put their differences aside, and are back on the same page.
After their stint in Latin America for Lollapalooza, and a few other festivals in March 2023, Blink-182 will tour North America, with support from Turnstile, from May to July.
Then, in September and October, Blink will embark on the European leg of their tour, with support from The Story So Far.
That will include shows in Glasgow's OVO Hydro, Belfasts, SSE Arena, Dublin's 3Arena, The O2 in London, the Utilita Arena in Birmingham, and the AO Arena in Manchester.
Tickets go on sale Monday, 17 October at 10:00am local time on blink182.com
