The Dammit singer has addressed reports that his former bandmate will rejoin the California pop punk band.

Mark Hoppus has addressed reports that his former bandmate and Blink 182 co-founder could return to the band.

Back in 2015, DeLonge left Blink 182 by issuing a statement, and the band went through a period of animosity in the process.

But in a recent interview with Hilary Doneux on San Diego’s 91X, he said he was still "good friends" with his former bandmates.

The rocker then went as far as to address the rumours that he might reunite with the band, saying: "Yes everybody, I will play with Blink again".

However, remaining member Mark Hoppus - who is now in the band with long-standing drummer Travis Barker and Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba, has had other ideas.

In a new interview the Dammit singer - who co-founded the band with DeLonge and original drummer Scott Raynor - has now said that reunion reports were "completely unfounded".

Speaking to LA station KROQ -FM, the vocalist said: "There is not any talk of that right now. I mean I'll never say never to anything, but that is a completely unfounded rumor at this point."

While Blink 182 fans might have to wait on confirmation of any reunion plans, the band have just announced they will tour their Enema of the State album in full.
