The holidays are quickly approaching, and Travis Barker and the rest of blink-182 apparently have quite the gift for their fans. The drummer revealed in a new interview that the band have recorded a new Christmas song.
This isn’t the first time Barker has teased a holiday track. Last year, he posted a photo of his drum kit on Instagram with the caption “currently recording Christmas music” paired with a Christmas tree emoji.
Though we never did get the new blink-182 Christmas track we were looking forward to, the drummer is giving us hope once again.
In an interview with Hannah Stocking, Barker and his daughter Alabama were playing a friendly game of Jenga when he was asked the question “What artists are you listening to right now?”
Despite not getting that new blink holiday song last year, this won’t be the first time the band has made a festive track. They gave “I Won’t Be Home for Christmas” a classic twist in 2001 as a single that was later re-released on the 2003 comp A Santa Cause: It’s a Punk Rock Christmas.
Nothing has been announced officially, but we’ll be anxiously awaiting the tracks debut.

More on blink-182
The collaboration was months in the making (or years if you take into consideration Grace’s self-proclaimed fandom). In November 2018, the vocalist made a dream come true by joining the pop-punk trio as support on two nights of their Las Vegas residency, Kings Of The Weekend.
“blink-182 is the reason I started playing guitar when I was a kid,” Grace shares. “Their music helped me through my entire childhood and teenage years, and I couldn’t be more honored to have them on a song of mine. Travis Barker reached out to me last fall to open for blink in Las Vegas, and we’ve become great friends since then. I hope ‘Scumbag’ can be the anthem for people’s lives such as blink’s entire discography is for me.”
