Travis Barker was on “The Kevin & Bean Show” to talk about his Musink festival. He mentioned that Blink-182 have 13 songs recorded for the new deluxe version of California, and that they want to release the deluxe version now while the album is still doing well and not hold the songs until the end of 2018 which would have been the earliest they could release a new album. He also mentioned recording a new Goldfinger album with John Feldmann, so, that’s some news.
The full interview can be found on Facebook.
Blink-182’s “She’s Out of Her Mind” has hit number one at alternative radio. You’ll find the current top thirty below.
Maybe there’s (the possibility of) a new live album, or because the (2009 film) Blinkumentary never came out, we talked about maybe doing some kind of new documentary. That would be cool.
It’s almost, it’s more than a whole other record, it’s a double album at this point and it’s more of an extension of what we did in the studio earlier. Some of the songs were songs that we did not put on the first album, but are great songs. And some are brand new that we just wrote last week, a lot of high-energy songs, punk rock, some more ballad-y songs, a little more electronic experimentation, it’s a good mix. It’s not a collection of throwaway songs, it’s like a whole other album.
Yeah, there are like four songs that didn’t make the album that we’re putting on there. But then there are brand-new songs like “Wildfire” and “Parking Lot” and “Misery” that are all so f—ing strong, man. It’s amazing. We started writing maybe a week and a half ago and I think we have 14 songs. It’s a good problem to have. I’m really excited about this deluxe edition. It’s gonna be incredible.
Ok, I’m sold.
It’s been a rough couple of days.
“We’re actually gonna get back in the studio in a couple of weeks and work on the deluxe version of California, which will include some songs nobody’s heard yet”.
Nova Rock Festival takes place from 14-17 June at Nickelsdord Pannonia Fields in Austria. The line-up reveals a lot about the bands who’ll be on tour for festival season next year, suggesting that many of the acts on the bill could appear at the likes of Download, Glastonbury and Isle Of Wight which all happen around the same period.
