During "Welcome to the Wild West", Stump addresses the common misconceptions from his February blog post, apologizing for his dramatization - "I got carried away with the sarcasm and hyperbole" - and reassuring his followers that he's "not depressed" and "won't ever quit music" even though we might not see a second solo album anytime soon.
Speaking of how he's spent the recent blog-free months of his life, he confirms that he's "still writing and working with other musicians" (most recently, Yellowcard). We knew this already, but it's probably worth a cry of "Hallelujah" anyway. As for his current non-musical ventures, Patrick Stump has spoken out saying that his foray into "taking acting classes" is simply a "hobby" but he's having "fun" doing it.
At the peak of Blink-182’s fame, Tom DeLonge had a lot of ideas kicking through his head. At a tour stop in Paris, sitting his hotel room, the singer came up with the concept of a character named Poet Anderson. Now, nearly 15 years later, he’s ready to incorporate that idea into a much larger and ambitious project with Angels & Airwaves than he’s ever attempted before.
