Frontman Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker announced in January (15) that DeLonge had left the band indefinitely and they all became embroiled in a public spat during which they revealed long-running issues and resentment between members.
DeLonge has now attempted to put the drama in the past by reaching out to Hoppus and telling fans there is no hate between them, writing in a post on Twitter.com, "I will never dislike @markhoppus - too many years as my closest friend. I want him to be happy."
Hoppus has yet to respond to the message.
Blink 182 is scheduled to play at the Musink Festival in California later this month (Mar15) with Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba replacing DeLonge.
