Tom DeLonge Leaves Blink-182…No…Wait…Yes… (UPDATED)

So if you are a music lover or in the music industry, the last 48 hours have been really confusing. First you wake up hearing lead guitarist and co-lead singer of Blink-182, Tom DeLonge, has left the band indefinitely or that he quit outright. A few hours later it’s now a joke? His bandmates didn’t discuss it with him? Journalists messed up really badly? The point is, we have no idea what is happening.

After the jump you can find most of the articles (the lines that pertain) and a few ideas that fans have about what may be going on. Feel free to write your thoughts on this very bizarre day in the comment section bellow. We look forward to hearing from you!

UPDATE #1: Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker did an impromptu interview with Rolling Stone about an hour ago. Read it here and become even more confused.

UPDATE #2: No confirmation yet, but this tweet, supposedly deleted, from DeLonge has been circling for the past few hours.

UPDATE #3: According to The Examiner, DeLonge has not officially quit, no word from his party to the truth of this.

UPDATE #4: Alternative Press does exclusive interview with Hoppus.

UPDATE #5: Delonge does an almost off record post on his Facebook 35 minutes ago. Still hasn’t officially said he’s done.

Update #6: Hoppus does interview with Billboard where he denies that Barker was ever going to quit.

Infectious Magazine does not claim to know any information other than what has already been stated.

Fall Out Boy Wrote Unused Music For One Direction

3-24 Fall Out BoyEver wonder what it would sound like if Fall Out Boy wrote all of One Direction‘s music? Well, you may have to keep wondering for a while.

Fall Out Boy wrote some music for One Direction to sing while they were visiting London, but 1D decided against using anything written by the group. Reports say the lyrics were just “too weird” and bizarre for the style of One Direction.

Pete Wenz sums it up rather well with the following statement:

INTERVIEW: Justin Chard (Ella Kaye)

Creating an EP with a full band can have its challenges, but doing it with a partial band can be even harder. That didn’t stop Ella Kaye, a metalcore band hailing from Arizona. Justin Chard and his fellow guitar play were left to create music after their band had split. The Arizona music scene came together and helped Chard and Ella Kaye create something that can all be proud of. Their EP release is just a few weeks away and it will be a huge step for the band in creating a fan base and showcasing their music.

Chard took time out of his day to chat with me about the future of the band and the negative sides of social media.

GUEST BLOG: Just Do You

DeleasaI know it would be much better suited for me to write about “5 things I can’t be without on the road” or who my celebrity crush is but hey, tonight might be my last, so I might as well put it all on the table. Now, the last thing I want to do is sound cynical or bitter because I can assure you, despite everything you’re about to read, I’m still in this game for the love of it. I have no intentions of throwing in the towel anytime soon. Sadly though, I feel that in this digital age, the musical waters have been muddied more so than ever before. With the consumer’s attention span down to six seconds to get your point across, it’s no wonder why Lady Gaga needs to drape her self in a meat suit to have her stellar voice one day be paired with the great Tony Bennett. My question and concern is: why did she have to play the game to just have her sheer talent heard?
