Last month Travis Barker revealed blink-182 would be putting a new album out before their Warped Tour 25th anniversary performance in June, and now, he’s told the world they’ve got over 40 songs in the bag!
“We have over 40 songs recorded,” the drummer explained of the follow-up to 2016’s California. “And we’ve never actually recorded that many songs for an album before. But it’s a matter of - I don’t know, our expectations are crazy. And you know, only 10-12 will be on the album. But we’ve got to have those 10-12 that are bangers.”
“I think we’re in a place where we don’t really want to repeat ourselves,” he went on to say. “We’ve done this for so long, we just want the absolute best.”
