Blink-182 Have Recorded Several Songs With Matt Skiba So Far (Top Story)


.
On Wednesday Blink-182 Have Recorded Several Songs With Matt Skiba So Far was a top story. Here is the recap: Travis Barker says Blink-182 have recorded several new songs with Alkaline Trio star Matt Skiba, who took over as the frontman when Tom DeLonge left the group.

Barker spoke with the UK music publication NME about what is happening with the band, shared his enthusiasm about working with Skiba and revealed that they have already recorded a number of new songs together.

Barker says, "Matt's killing it. He's fun to play with and write with. We're just getting started but I think we've got like four or five songs right now that I'm really, really happy with. There's a song called 'Punk Rock Cliché' which I love the most right now. It's about friends of ours and their relationships."

Barker also revealed that the new material will be a little different from what people have come to expect from Blink-182. "They sound different but still the same. Obviously, it's Matt Skiba singing so there's hints of Alkaline Trio, or at least Matt's contributions to Alkaline Trio, mixed with my drumming and Mark's voice and stuff. It's really cool and I really love what we've done so far."

While the band is making progress on new music, Barker says that the band is letting the new album come organically. "The goal here is to come up with an album and just write.

"We don't put a limit on how many songs we're gonna write. [We just] Write a bunch of songs and when we feel like there's an album ready, there's an album ready. You know, no pressure, no deadlines." -
