Tom Delonge Teasing Boxcar Racer?

Posted by: Drew Beringer (10/03/13)
Tom Delonge looks to be teasing about something Boxcar Racer-related. Or is he just bathing in some nostalgia?

That's an uncomfortable stretch to me. Tom posts very, very old pictures of blink, etc all the time - and this Box Car shot isn't any different than that.

Also, there's not much for Box Car to be able to do in the role they could do it in. Tom/Travis have sworn it off because of how Mark originally felt about the project, which of course lead to part of the band's breakup. Also, the ten year has already passed and the album has been put on vinyl multiple times.

I don't follow Tom on instagram and got like 15 submissions about this in the news queue so thought it was newsworthy. I'm inclined to agree with you after reading your post however.

yeah, i'm tryyyyying not to read too much into it. i think he's just posting that for nostalgia purposes. however, i would love a new BCR album, as long as it actually sounds heavy and not AVA-ish.

He's just messing with us. He hinted some BCR stuff before Dogs Eating Dogs came out, but I didn't hear anything Box Car Racy on the EP...

More than anyone in the world, I'd love to be wrong - the record changed my life. However, I'd place large amounts of money against it. I was tempted to post on POZ, but realized like..Box Car Racer is in fact going to stay dead, unlike most other bands.

No matter how far off it might be from actually happening, I want to believe there's still a chance.

That record is truly incredible. It's the best lyric writing Mark ever done. I believe that was his peek as a writer, which makes it all the more shame that that album wasn't blink.

agreed with it being his peak as a writer - everything on that record is just so damn good. I don't buy pop-punk records on vinyl really anymore but I would buy +44 on wax if I found it for a good price.

I was so stoked when that got pressed. Only have one copy, otherwise I'd trade you the other.

yeah there are a handful of them on discogs for like 50 bucks.

also typing in "plus 44 vinyl" on ebay does not bring up the record haha it brings up something completely different

Likely just a throwback pic. Would love to hear new Boxcar though.
