Reading this finally made me realize that they are back; they are back for good.

Thanks for ruining my dreams.
|People always have this idea that backstage is this amazing place to visit, but it's usually just people sitting around, bored.|
It's really interesting when my friends come backstage for the first time and they're looking for this giant party and it's just a bunch of people poking around, doing their job, getting to work. It's like when people come into the studio when you're recording. They go, "Oh, I want to come see you guys record!" They think everyone is just rocking out in this 10-hour jam session. They come in and people are working the gear, setting up mics, we record a part, "How was that? You like that sound?" You work about half an hour getting a bass sound. They're like, "This is so boring." Then they leave.

Get him a cranberry juice
as much as i dislike the new album, i am beyond stoked for the next one, hopefully they all just sit in a room and write with a deadline and a goal.

A man, a plan, a canal, Panama.
Never get tired of reading about these guys. "We all have different ideas. I bring beats to them" - I like that one Mr. Barker.

It always makes me a little upset when Tom basically implies that Mark has no sense of innovation or experimentation. They've both evolved.

Seems like that angels album that had to be finished so soon seemed to be more of a contractural obligation then Tom picking AvA over Blink. Thats good to hear. Also I loved Travis's last 2 questions.

A joy to read them talk about the band like that. Again really enjoyed Travis' answers, especially the last one.

especially when Mark has the most experimental Blink song ever, Fighting The Gravity lol.

love how honestly they answered things in this 2 part interview. prob the best interview with them I've ever seen.

MAKE EVIL AFRAID OF EVILS SHADOW
|When we look back now, after my crash when Tom and Mark finally came to my house, about thirty seconds went by and Tom and Mark are telling dick jokes. It's like, "Look, you dickheads didn't talk to each other for six years and now everything's completely fine." You realize how petty some shit was we were all fighting over.|
Best moment of any blink-182 interview ever.

die young and save yourself
some answers made me cringe a bit (especially the ones about blink being a "compromise") but I always love to hear what these guys have to say. more people need to interview travis!

Reading these interviews with them separated is my preference. It's just massive evidence that they need each other now more then they ever thought they did when they weren't talking. I feel like although they come from very different backgrounds in every aspect of life, it's the longevity of everything that keeps them going.
Especially now that they have all been through some pretty serious shit both personally and as a band, it makes being a band even more special.
