Travis Barker says new Blink-182 album, two Transplants EPs coming in 2016

In the comments section of a recent post on his Instagram page, Travis Barker revealed that 2016 will see the release of a new full-length from Blink-182, along with two new Transplants EPs.

No further information is currently available, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as more details on these releases come to light.

Blink’s new record will be their first with new guitarist/vocalist, Alkaline Trio‘s Matt Skiba, who joined the band following their not-so-amicable split with Tom DeLonge. The new EPs will be the first Transplants releases since 2013’s In a Warzone.

Noisey premiere episode three of “Under The Influence – Krautrock” with Tim Armstrong

Noisey has just launched the third installment of their series “Under The Influence.” Narrated by the one and only Tim “Timebomb” Armstrong  (RancidOperation IvyTransplants), the episode focuses on the scene that is/was Krautrock. Check it out below, and stay tuned for next week’s episode.

In case you missed it, last week’s episode, which focused on two-tone ska, can be viewed right here.

Tim Armstrong, Skinhead Rob forming new band

Apparently Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong and Rob Aston (Skinhead Rob) are getting the band back together, or at least A band.

On Monday, Rob posted the following announcement on his Facebook and Twitter accounts: 

“New band in the works. John John Jesse, Roy Mayorga, Vic Venom, Tim Armstrong, and me. ‪#‎ZERSTÖREN‬”.

I have no clue what the word means, so feel free to enlighten me if you have some insight.

Armstrong and Aston have worked together on several projects, with Transplants obviously being the most well-known and successful.

You might recognize some of those other names Rob listed. John John Jesse played guitar in Morning Glory and bass in NYC crust-punk band Nausea. Roy Mayorga and Vic Venom were also part of Nausea. Mayorga is currently playing drums in Stone Sour, and has been in several well-known bands, including Soulfly and (briefly) Sepultura. Venom previously spent time with Reagan Youth, and it currently playing guitar with The Coffin Daggers.

Travis Barker reveals his plans for 2015

In a recent interview, Travis Barker revealed what his plans for the new year are, stating that his priority is finishing a memoir, and then his next solo album, which will be his first since 2011’s Give the Drummer Some, followed by the long-awaited new Blink-182 album, an EP he’s working on with Hospin and a Transplants covers album.

Blink-182 last released the EP Dogs Eating Dogs in December 2012, and have reportedly been back in the studio recording their long-awaited new album for a 2015 release. The Transplants’ latest album In a War Zone was released last year.

Travis Barker to focus on different projects until Blink-182 “gets their shit together”

In a recent interview with OC Weekly, Travis Barker expressed his desire to focus on other projects until Blink-182 “gets their shit together,” stating the following when asked about the status of the band:

“Honestly, we haven’t really started on anything new at this point. We have a couple shows booked but that’s it. Until all three of us get in the same room and other people’s schedules clear, it’s kinda outta my hands. So I keep myself busy in the studio. I’m in the middle of rehearsals with the Transplants for MusInk and we’re recording a covers album. So we’re recording a bunch of our favorite songs. We just recorded “Gratitude” by the Beastie Boys, done Transplants style. Did a bunch of stuff for Bad Lucc, his album’s about to drop, playing a drums. Until my big projects like Blink are happening and everyone gets their shit together, this is what I do. This is what I know, making music and playing drums and creating in the studio. So I have a lot of things to keep me busy in the meantime.”

Blink-182 last self-released an EP entitled “Dogs Eating Dogs” in December of 2012 after parting ways with Interscope Records.

Transplants planning album of covers, may include Beastie Boys’ “Gratitude”

In a recent interview, Blink-182/Transplants drummer Travis Barker disclosed that the latter band is working on an album of covers that grew out of something called Transplants Tuesdays. Here’s that portion of the Q&A:

You guys are working on the new Blink album, I’ve seen on social media.
About to start it. Right now I’m doing a covers album with Transplants. We have something called Transplants Tuesdays, and we get together for about two hours every Tuesday and we knock out a new cover song.

What was the most recent one you did?
“Gratitude,” by the Beastie Boys, it was awesome. Hearing Tim [Armstrong] and Rob [Aston] sing it is like, the fucking best.

Are there any songs you’d love to do but haven’t worked out for some reason?
We don’t want to cover anything exactly like it was. “Gratitude” is probably the closest that we’ve come, but I guess there’s some stuff that’s untouchable. Like one time I did an American Idol performance with Mary J. [Blige] and she covered “Stairway To Heaven” and I was like, “Oh shit, this could be really bad or really good.” And Mary is such a great vocalist and just understands music and understands Zeppelin and that era of music that she killed it. But that was the one that worried me. Transplants, we can kind of do anything. Like, nothing is off limits. We could really fuck with any genre of music and we don’t feel out of place.

So is there one song you are really excited to try?
There’s a Geto Boys song called “Fuck ‘Em” that we haven’t tried yet, but that’s gonna be awesome. We have a bunch, we literally just go in, nothing’s planned, let’s say she’s [the friend sitting in on the interview] in the band, she throws out, “I like this song.” We’re like, “Fuck it, let’s listen to it, let’s see how we reinterpret.”

Is there an idea of when the album will come out?

We had talked about, “Do we release a song every couple of weeks or whatever?” But I think we’re actually gonna do an album and either come out independently or through Epitaph.

We’ll keep you posted as more details on this come to light. The latest Transplants album entitled “In A Warzone” was released in June of 2013 through Epitaph Records.
