Matt Skiba hopes Blink-182 gig will be a permanent one
by Epitaph

Though he's not hurting for projects -- with Alkaline Trio, Matt Skiba and the Sekrets and now Blink-182 -- Matt Skiba is hoping his gig in Blink-182 is a long term one. In an interview with Alternative Nation, he said as much:

I’m about to go on an Alkaline Trio tour for a couple months. There’s some time and some things that those guys need to figure out before we can start saying I’m a permanent member. But that is a hope of mine. If we’re discussing recording an album, I think that seals the deal.

Skiba is replacing guitarist Tom Delonge, who has had a pretty acrimonious split with his former band.
