“It was very forward for us, it was such an adventurous recording. That really felt good because we’d turned the corner from a pop-punk band to conceptual and progressive, um, punk band.”
Travis Barker of Blink-182 talk about their intimate Palladium shows, making a new album, when his kids are allowed to get their first tattoo, and what it will be like playing their 2003 self-titled album from back to front in several upcoming shows.
Producer Mark Trombino has helped Blink-182 and Jimmy Eat World, as they say, make the donuts, from Dude Ranch to Bleed American and other pop-punk gems along the way. Now Trombino is literally making donuts… with a nod to his punk past.
Each night of their summer tour, blink-182 drummer Travis Barker recorded a short video of his drumming to post on his Vine account. He’s just released a compilation video of all the clips, making us think he’s the real live Energizer Bunny.
Originally scheduled as a day off, Blink-182’s Tom Delonge Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker opted to add a Brooklyn show tonight as a 9/11 tribute and a means to generate money and awareness for two hospitals.
Blink-182 are going to release a new album in 2014. They just have to start writing it.
Travis Barker was temporarily left looking like pepperoni pizza after undergoing an uncommon Middle Eastern therapy called cupping.
