BLINK-182 have announced that they became an “independent artist”.  The band has left Interscope Records.

Tom DeLonge tweeted:

Freedom!! Blink as of today, is now an independent Artist!!!!!


Mark Hoppus released a full statement explaining what happened:

Yes indeed, we are no longer with Interscope. It’s been a long, amazing journey with them, starting with Cargo records, then MCA, then Geffen, and finally Interscope, but the time has come to move on,” he wrote. “The reasons for us not working together are many and varied, but mostly we wish them luck in everything in their future, and thank those there who’ve worked so hard on Blink-182 throughout the years.

As far as labels, to be honest, we’ve been holding our breath waiting for final word from the attorneys that our contract with Interscope had ended. Now the future’s a wide-open door,” Hoppus wrote. “We’re lucky to be in a position where, after 20 years in our band, we can be independent and open to all options. It’s a very exciting time here. I feel like our band is in the best place it’s been in a long time. I mean, just look at my hair!
