News of Blink-182‘s reunion with Tom DeLonge led to a jump in the band’s streaming numbers.

According to Billboard, U.S. streams of the “All the Small Things” outfit’s catalog increased to 3.87 million on October 11 — the day the reunion news broke — from 1.73 million the previous day, marking a spike of 124%.

By the time Blink released their comeback single “Edging” the following Friday, streams reached a total of 6.22 million.

“Edging” marks Blink’s first new material with DeLonge in over 10 years. Following DeLonge’s departure from the group in 2015, Blink released two albums — 2016’s California and 2019’s Nine — with Alkaline Trio frontman Matt Skiba on guitar.

With DeLonge back in the band, Blink will launch a worldwide tour in 2023. A new album is also in the works.
