Pop-punk has seen a resurgence in recent years, and now the veteran statesmen of the genre are reuniting for a new tour.

blink-182 are widely regarded as the godfathers of pop-punk, and the original line-up of Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker are hitting the road in 2023, including two dates in Ireland.

The pop-punk legends will play Belfast's SSE Arena on September 4th next year, with a gig at Dublin's 3Arena on September 5th.

The original iteration of the band are back in the studio for the first time in nearly 10 years, and their new single 'Edging' will release this Friday, marking the first time the classic line-up have released material since the 2011 album 'Neighborhoods'.

blink-182 have also stated that they are working on a new album that is due for release next year, which will coincide with their global tour, which will see the band play everywhere from Paraguay, New Zealand, Norway and Canada.

blink-182 shot to fame in the late 90s as the face of the pop-punk genre, with their album 'Enema Of The State' going on to sell over 15 million albums worldwide.

Their biggest hit came in 2000, with their track 'All The Small Things' hitting number 2 in the UK charts, number 6 in their native United States and number 7 in Ireland.

Since their heyday, artists like Machine Gun Kelly, Panic! At The Disco, and Willow Smith have cited blink-182 as an influence on their music, and drummer Travis Barker is often drafted in by pop stars of today to lend their tracks pop-punk gravitas.
