Travis Barker Shares “Heaven” Demo

Travis Barker has shared the “Heaven” demo Blink-182 on YouTube. Travis commented on the demo:

This demo inevitably turned into ‘Heaven’ on ‘NINE’ – blink-182 album. It was a small piece of a 45 minute jam / writing session with my friend Chris Greatti. The rest is history.

In a recent interview with Vogue, Mark talked a little more about the song:

[S]tarkly different to “Heaven,” a meatier track written about the 2018 mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California. “It means a lot to me personally,” Hoppus says. “What started off as a song about broken hearts became a song about living in America in 2019.”

Blink-182 – “Wildfire”

Blink-182 have debuted another track from their upcoming deluxe album. This one is called “Wildfire.”

I like it, but deep down I hope these songs get this style out of their system a little bit and they are willing to explore and try some new things on the next album. Something more moody, more vibe-y, more Alkaline Trio’s Crimson meets +44.
