Travis Barker ‘Disgusted’ Over Echosmith Drummer Allegedly Contacting His Daughter

Echosmith’s drummer has allegedly been sending some creepy messages to Travis Barker’s daughter:

Barker tells The Blast, “When I found out a 20 year old man was trying to get in touch with my 13 year old daughter by filling her Instagram messages with party invites and compliments I was disgusted.”

Barker continues, “That’s predatory behavior and there is nothing cool, normal or ok about it at all.”

This does not appear to be the first time something like this has happened.

The Veronicas Working With Travis Barker and John Feldmann

The Veronicas have confirmed they’re working with John Feldmann and Travis Barker on new music:

As to whether the songs with Barker will feature on their new album, expected to drop later this year, Origliasso could not confirm or deny.

“I would like to say yes, we would love to have some of those tracks make this record… those songs are sick,” she said.

“It’s sort of deciding whether those songs will go on a Veronicas record or whether they’ll go on a side project release because John was loving it.”

Travis Barker Talks New Blink-182 Music

Chris Payne, writing at Billboard:

There’s a song that we refer to as “Paris” that’s really awesome. It was actually a beat I made for Juice WRLD and before I ever got in the studio with him, I played it randomly, and Mark [Hoppus] said, “Oh what are you working on?” They were like, “Whoa, we really like this.” And it morphed into a Blink song. It’s probably our favorite right now.
