Blink 182 - Delonge Explains Blink-182'S 'Stupid' Split

Blink-182 star Tom Delonge has called the band's 2005 break-up "stupid" and blamed the split on "the machine" which surrounded the rockers at the height of their fame.
The group embarked on an indefinite hiatus six years ago amid rumours of infighting and a nasty rift between bandmembers, but they bounced back in 2009.
They will release their first album in eight years, Neighborhoods, in September (11) and guitarist Delonge has now attempted to explain the reasons behind the break-up.
He tells Britain's Bbc Radio 1, "The reason the band broke up was really stupid in the first place, it's not like anybody had sex with each other's wives, though for how bad we hated each other that should have been what happened... The band got so big that the machine running the band took over. We were burned out, we needed a break, but the machine won't let you do that. The band had stopped communicating because the machine was so big."
