"We all have children, and I think it's a good time to be home with them."
Without the knowledge of Rick DeVoe Management, which oversees blink-182's business, drummer Travis Barker called up radio station KROQ, Los Angeles, to set the record straight about the band's "indefinite hiatus."
"I think it's healthy to take a break. We did the same thing four years ago."
Insiders say Barker's other band, the Transplants, will play every date of the yet-to-be-announced Warped Tour, which begins June 18 and runs through mid-August.
