The fun way of saying they were dropped.
LOL not at all. Why would Interscope drop a band that makes bank on shed tours?

This is clearly something they've been working toward and negotiating about for a while.

Tom has been a staunch supporter of independence ever since he was able to get out of AVA's contract with Geffen. He has run that band in a self-sufficient manner for years... why exactly do people think Blink were dying to stay with an outdated business model when they have the clout, fanbase and money to do it all themselves?

I hear Blink got dropped because they don't travel in the same tour bus anymore.

I can def see a situation where they had to either negotiate a new deal, since they were still on their contract from the hiatus, or leave the label. So they decided to just leave the label. I feel like if they really desired being unsigned, they would have discussed it more during the recent push of the last album.
They were likely still under contract when they decided to come back, hence releasing Neighborhoods on Interscope.

are they forever independent? or just until they find another label? will it cost them less to put out an album now or more seeing there will be a huge demand and theyd have to print so many copies themselves as well as promote?
Their overhead costs aren't as high now that they all have their own fully stocked studios. Obviously distributing a record independently is more complicated, but I imagine they'll just find a distributor and handle it that way.

Their contracted ended, the band did not renew.
You're wrong -- they quit the label!
