Despite the success of their last album and tour, Blink 182 has decided to go on hiatus. Though earlier reports told of the band's permanent dissolution, the boys are so far only calling it a "break."
Drummer Travis Barker declared on ultimate-guitar.com that Blink 182 is over for now and that he is concentrating on other projects for the time being.
Barker is currently working on his new MTV reality series, Meet the Barkers, which focuses on his family life. Barker has also formed an electronic duo called Plus 44 with Blink bassist and singer Mark Hoppus. The band is currently recording its debut release.
As well, Barker continues to work with another group, The Transplants, which he formed a few years back with Rancid's Tim Armstrong. The outfit is to release its sophomore album this May and has a slot on this year's Warped Tour.
Blink 182 formed in the early 1990s and hit it big with their 1999 album, Enema of the State. Blink members are no strangers to side projects, Barker and guitarist Tom DeLonge having teamed up a few years ago to form Boxcar Racer. What DeLonge is working on now remains a mystery.
