New Interview With Travis Barker

Travis Barker

Travis Barker of Blink-182 talks about the band, and life, in a recent interview:

Not only does Barker consider it their most personal record yet, but he also feels that the time they spent apart has resulted in them making some of their strongest work to date. “We had a lot to say, to write about and to experiment with after not being in the same band for however many years,” he says. “It was really exciting.”

“Everything has just been really organic,” he affirms. “If you’re just doing album cycle after album cycle, you do lose inspiration. For me, I’ve got to get out and live and experience something. I need some ups and downs. I need some of the best days of my life, and I need some tragedy.”
