While Tom DeLonge is busy writing 15 novels and the fastest punk song ever, Blink-182 (with replacement member Matt Skiba) are in “talks” of recording a new album and touring with A Day To Remember.
ADTR recently opened Blink’s first show with Skiba and totally killed it.
“There are talks of all sorts of things,” Travis Barker told Billboard in a new interview. “There’s talk of maybe recording an album, there are talks of doing a tour with A Day To Remember, so we’ll see what happens.”
Read part of Barker’s new interview with Billboard below, and let us know your thoughts.
“What did it feel like Wednesday to finally get up there and play Blink songs?
Oh, it was so fun ‘cause you’re in a practice room for four weeks and I know how dope it sounds and I know how good the vibe is going, but no one else does. So it’s finally like, “Okay, we’ve heard Trav talk about it, we’ve heard Mark talk about it, we just witnessed it.” Fans pretty much feel the same way. In San Diego during our encore, kids were chanting “Skiba, Skiba.” It was awesome. I’m glad we did them too because this is a lot of people just to walk out in front of for the first time.
Were you surprised at all by how receptive people were to the lineup?
It went off just like I thought it would. It was definitely a great feeling to see what I was feeling was reassured by the crowd response and by feedback via the Internet and social media.”
