Blink-182 are hard at work recording their new album and the suspense is KILLING US!
But luckily, they’re dropping a few breadcrumbs to stop us from going hungry.
The pop-punk trio -who for the first time are working with guitarist Matt “Alkaline Trio” Skiba in place of their founding brother and current prodigal son Tom DeLonge – have posted another video update from the band-cave, showing Travis Barker tracking some tasty drumlines on a brand new song.
Unfortunately, Travis is the only one who can hear the whole track, so we’ve only got the drums to go on.
But luckily, the drums are sounding SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK.
A Slayer shirt-wearing Travis kicks things off with a slick fill on the snare and toms before laying down some light, quickfire grooves on the snare with plenty of ride bell action.
Check out the video below via Mark Hoppus’s Instagram, of which the bass player says, “Tracking drums for a song that didn’t exist this morning.”
Meanwhile, Blink-182’s John Feldmann-produced comeback record is expected to drop sometime this year.
Speaking just a few weeks ago, Travis described the album as sounding “great” and couldn’t contain his excitement about the positive studio vibes.
“It’s awesome because we’re all actually in the studio, where we couldn’t get that with the old lineup. It was impossible to get all three of us in the same studio… I think with a band you can’t just phone it in. You gotta be there,” he said.
“For that great chemistry and for everyone to really vibe you gotta all be in the same room. It’s just exciting. It’s a new chapter and we’re not striving for mediocrity, we’re looking to kill it. We’re gonna make a great album.”
