About BLINK-182:

Since their humble beginnings twenty-four years ago, when they started playing in a San Diego garage, ‘blink-182’ has sold over fifty million albums worldwide and rocked audiences all over the world having become one of the defining rock bands of their generation. They combine high-energy dynamics with an artistic ambition that transcends any genre.  Now with Matt Skiba (of Alkaline Trio) joining ‘blink-182’ as singer/guitarist, the group has started a new chapter. Skiba debuted with ‘blink-182’ in March 2015 with a live performance at the MusInk Tattoo and Music Festival: "It was the best they've sounded in over a decade," the OC Weekly raved about the band's set.
