blink-182 big announcement November 6th?!

blink-182 are making a 'very special announcement' on Sunday November 6th, from 7pm. As this is the BBC, this probably means 7pm UK time, so for you USA fans thats 2pm EST or 11am PST. Now there's a very high probability that the announcement is the 'official' unveiling of the European tour. There has already been a few dates semi-announced for this, including Download Festival in France, which suggests they'll also be performing at the UK Download festival as well. It being the European tour would also make sense because they're announcing it on UK radio, and the image above (and posted in magazines) randomly states '2017',

MTV: Travis Looks Back On Blink-182 Tour, Ahead With Solo Album

Posted on in Travis Barker | 1 Comment

From MTV.com:

Travis Barker has had some time to digest everything that happened during Blink-182’s reunion tour. It was a three-month roller-coaster ride that featured the highest of highs — sold-out venues, blissed-out crowds, high-flying drum solos — and, with the shocking death of Barker’s friend Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein, the absolute lowest of lows.

So last week, when MTV News spoke to him about his upcoming solo album, we asked for his reactions on the Blink tour and how he coped with Goldstein’s death while in the midst of it all.

“No doubt, it was the best tour of our lives, ever. The most fun I’ve ever had on a Blink tour with Mark and Tom,” Barker said. “[I] couldn’t have got through the lowest of lows on that tour without Mark and Tom, so it was a blessing in disguise. … I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else when any of the bad news or the unfortunate things happened this summer. I couldn’t have been in a better place than with two of my best friends.”

Blink-182 canceled three shows in the wake of Goldstein’s death and held a moment of silence for him during their set. Barker said he’ll never forget that night — or any night of the tour, for that matter — and, like all things in life, the page must be turned. So with the events of this past summer behind him, he’s moving ahead with his solo record — and still squeezing in the occasional studio session with Hoppus and DeLonge too.

“The rest of the year, I’m gonna finish my record, I’m gonna work with Mark and Tom here and there,” he said. “My goal is to have [the solo record] ship by March or April and do a small tour too. In a perfect world, there will be a video before the end of the year too. I’m concentrating on the music side of things now.”

MTV: Travis Barker Promises New Blink-182 Song On His Solo Record

Posted on in blink-182, Travis Barker | 8 Comments

From MTV.com:

While the status of Blink-182’s much-discussed “Up All Night” — the new song they didn’t play on their just-wrapped reunion tour — remains unclear, drummerTravis Barker isn’t letting that stop him from talking up another new Blink tune, one that will appear on his upcoming solo record.

“There’s some stuff on my record that’s not going to have a bunch of guitars, that are just straight-up hip hop records. Everything’s going be real different. It’s going to be really well-rounded,” he told MTV News on Wednesday. “We got a new Blink song on there, I think I’m going to do something with Chester Bennington from Linkin Park. Hopefully a guest appearance from Slash, I’m doing his big fundraiser that happens this month. I think there’s going to be a collaboration with [Kanye West’s touring DJ] A-Track, so it’s gonna be really in all directions.”

Barker didn’t have many details about that new Blink tune — mostly because the band hasn’t written it yet — but he’s clear about one thing: The song most definitely isn’t “Up All Night.” Blink have other plans for that.

“No, ‘Up All Night’ will have its own home, and it won’t be on my record. That will continue to be part of a new Blink record or will be released through Blink182.com or something, it’s going to be a surprise,” Barker said. “The new song that we record for my record is just going to be something from scratch, and just us doing our thing.”

MTV: Hear Travis’ Remix Of Drake’s ‘Forever’

From MTV.com:

Apparently, Travis Barker doesn’t sleep. At all. Which is how he’s able to keep cranking out remixes while simultaneously working on a new Blink-182 record, his own solo album, and rehearsing for an upcoming show with none other than Slash (a November 22 benefit for the Los Angeles Youth Network). And that’s not even getting into his business ventures, or his role as a rock-and-roll dad.

“Yeah, I wake up at 6,” he laughed. “I’m a busy man, I guess.”

Travis Barker remixes Slaughterhouse

Here’s the remix Travis did of the Slaughterhouse track “The One.” For those of you with sensitive ears, be warned, the song contains *gasp* bad words. Travis always does great work, but he really killed it on this one! Gonna be stuck in my head all day…
