Blink-182's Mark Hoppus Posts Clip of Travis Barker Tracking Drums for New Song [WATCH]
Blink-182's Mark Hoppus has posted a clip to his Instagram page of Travis Barker tracking drums for a brand new song during one of the band's studio sessions with famed pop-punk producer and Goldfinger frontman, John Feldmann.
The brief clip is captioned, "tracking drums for a song that didn't exist this morning," suggesting that the band had an unprovoked flow of creativity at some point yesterday (Feb. 2). The drumming sounds a lot like a song that would appear on the band's celebrated 2003 self-titled album -- or at least we think so.
The current band consists of the two previously mentioned founding members along with Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba, who joined the pop-punk outfit after Tom DeLonge was kicked out and/or left. The updated trio had performed a few shows together on the West Coast after linking up and recently posted a promising photo from the studio.
Feldmann, who has produced for bands such as All Time Low and 5 Seconds of Summer, has been hard at work with the newly-formed trio for a few months now. In a recent interview, Barker revealed that the band had 15-20 songs recorded and has been entertaining the idea of touring this summer, ultimately hinting that the new album could be released during that time.
A new album would serve as Blink-182's seventh overall studio album, but first without DeLonge, who has remained hard at work via his own label, To The Stars... at his solo material, novels, and side (and now, only) project Angels and Airwaves.
