The Blink-182 plot continues to thicken: Mark Hoppus has opened up about Tom DeLonge’s claim of the two speaking following the release of the band’s new song, “Bored To Death.”

“I hadn’t even spoken to Tom in a year and a half,” he told Kevin Klein Live. “[Making music with DeLonge again] is so far down to the road to even be a possibility.”

He added that DeLonge’s Facebook statement “came as a surprise,” but that he will “never say never to anything, but this is what Blink 182 is right now.”

This past Friday, DeLonge shared a statement to his Facebook page that asserted a multitude of things, including that he met with Hoppus the day before and speaks to drummer Travis Barker “almost every day.”
