Travis Barker teases new Blink-182 track

Travis Barker has teased fans with a clip of him playing the drum intro to one of his favourite songs on Blink-182’s forthcoming record.

The sticksman recently confirmed that the band had finished recording the new album.

He said: “It’s all there, the album’s done. It’s just a matter of picking what 12 to 14 songs will be on the album. I think we wrote 26 or 27. Everyone right now is really pushing for their favourites.”

Last month Barker said their upcoming album is the best they’ve created in over a decadeand it’s due out this year.

Meanwhile, he recalled how Tom DeLonge wanted their music to sound like U2 and Coldplay towards the end of his tenure with the band. They split with DeLonge last year and brought in Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba.

The band are scheduled to play the Dover Firefly Festival in Delaware, US, which is held from June 16-19.

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
