Members of BLINK 182 and Rancid have formed a ‘supergroup’.

The Transplants, who feature Blink drummer Travis Barker and [a][/a] members Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman, will release a currently untitled album in September, according to Rolling Stone.

Speaking about the project, Barker said: “I got a call from Tim and he said, ‘What’s up? You’re my favourite drummer’. I said, ‘Really? Amazing!’ Originally I thought I was going to come in and do some drum tracks, but they were like, ‘We want you to be in our band.’

“We’re finishing the programming and mixing now, and we’re going to do a little west coast tour in July and probably head east in September.”
