Wait, what?

Tom DeLonge is still in Blink-182... according to Tom DeLonge.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, he said "I am currently in the band," and says he was never officially fired, nor did he officially quit.

On his chances of ever linking up with the band - who have now recruited Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba - he said, "I'm not opposed to it. I still would be interested, if people would just pick up the phone and call."

Elsewhere, Tom gave some insight into life without Blink, saying: "It's incredible when you're playing 'All the Small Things' in front of 100,000 people with lasers and shit. But it's difficult to grow when you're doing the same thing over and over. All I care about is, 'Am I happy? Am I around people who love me?' I'm doing too much cool stuff here to stop."

He also talked about the breakdown of his relationship with Mark Hoppus, confessing: "I didn't talk to the guy for seven years straight, and you become a much different human being from 29 to 36."

You can read the full interview over at Rolling Stone.

Blink-182 announced 'California' - their first album in five years - overnight, and you can hear new song 'Bored To Death' below.
