Blink 182's Travis Barker talks new album, tour: 'It's definitely coming close'
Image Credit: Simone Joyner/Getty ImagesNot only is the long-awaited Blink-182 album almost-kinda-nearly finished, but drummer Travis Barker says the band might actually hit the road for a full tour—not just the short run of overseas dates they announced last November.
“We are talking about taking Kid Cudi out for an amazing tour we may have planned for later this year,” Barker told MTV News.That’s coming on the heels of Barker saying the band’s new album—their first in eight years—will be finished in “June or July.”
“Here’s the thought process for the album,”said Barker, who will also release his solo outing Give the Drummer Some on March 15. “Build 20 songs, pick 12 we love, and then concentrate on those 12 songs until they’re done, and then our album’s finished. And it’s definitely coming close … I think it’s where you would think Blink would be right now if you left off with our last album with us, and you follow each of our careers, and you know what we’ve done [since].”
Either way, June or July is still far enough from now for us to feel like we wouldn’t bet the mortgage on its summertime arrival. But what do you think, Blink fans? Tell us in the comments section, below.
