Blink 182’s Tom DeLonge has said that the reasons for the band’s break up in 2005 were “stupid”.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Radio 1, Delonge said: “The reason the band broke up was really stupid in the first place; it’s not like anybody had sex with each other’s wives. Though, for how bad we hated each other, that should have been what happened. The band got so big that the machine running the band took over. We were burnt out, we needed a break, but the machine won’t let you do that. The band had stopped communicating because the machine was so big”.

Now they’re back together, the band have recorded a new album, ‘Neighborhoods’, which is due out later this year. You can hear the first single from it, ‘Up All night’, here:
