If I listen to the song and it makes me happy, that’s all that matters for Goldfinger. The point isn’t trying to connect at radio. With Blink, the intent was a comeback record. We knew going into it that it was time to get on the radio and put the band back on the map where they belonged, because they’re a timeless, classic, legendary group. Not that Goldfinger isn’t, but we were always underground. I was singing about animal rights and telling Ted Nugent to fuck off. I was never trying to compete with whatever was on pop radio at the time. When we were blowing up, it was Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys, ultimately. That was never my goal; it was just to get my aggression out. “A Million Miles” came out of a spot of “I still care about music.”
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.
