Watch Travis Barker lay down a drum track for Blink 182’s new album

It's coming...

Blink 182 have shared studio footage of Travis Barker recording the band’s upcoming new album. Check out the clips below.

With the pop-punk outfit’s follow-up to 2016’s ‘California’ due this summer, fans have now been given a glimpse of the LP being made.


Taking to Instagram, bassist Mark Hoppus uploaded a clip captioned: “blink-182 studio life”. The video shows drummer Travis Barker laying down the beat to a new track. The musician also shared the behind-the-scenes footage, along with the message: “Left foot still works.”

Late last month, Mark Hoppus told NME that the “different” LP is “a lot more aggressive” and “darker” than the band’s previous work. “[We’re] trying to experiment more, trying different sounds, and trying to expand upon what people think Blink 182 is,” he said.

Setting sights on a release date, Barker recently said that Blink’s eighth studio album will “definitely be out before the Warped Tour”. The group are set to perform at the Atlantic City date of the tour on the weekend of June 29-30.

Speaking about the direction of new LP, the musician added: “Literally anything goes. I think we’re creating one of the most important Blink albums, so I’m really proud of it.”


Meanwhile, Mark Hoppus has recalled Blink 182’s first-ever live show – revealing that they were cut off after just three tracks.
