Blink 182 Say New EP Is A Hundred Times Better Than Neighborhoods
Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.13.2012



Blink 182 told Rolling Stone that their upcoming EP, which they plan to have ready by Christmas, will be better than their last album Neighborhoods.

Travis Barker said: "To me already, this EP is a hundred times better than Neighborhoods. Because we're all in a room together. There's some songs on there that I love, but for the most part it was disconnected. It was like, 'You do this part in your studio, and then you're gonna play on it and send it back to me.' When we're not in the studio together, you don't have the opportunity to gel off each other."

The three were sending the work through email at the time and were not in the same studio. Barker was also still recovering from his 2008 plane crash at the time. He said: "Dude, I was still healing. I had scabs all over my body and was, like, a bloody mess. It was just way too soon."

Now Barker says the band is back together and have already come up with five new songs. He describes them as "really, really cool", including one which is a "very folky" song. He added: "I don't even know. It's way out. We all had some ideas. I went in the studio and I was just playing around. I had my electronic kit and I just played a straight drum pattern over it, and it sounded crazy. It changed the entire shape of the song."

Barker was the one who brought up the idea of recording again, as he mentioned it to Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge during their European tour. But it didn't begin to happen until much later. He said: "It was like three days after Halloween and Tom was like, 'Dude, we should do that!'"

They are now an indie band since their 1994 debut after leaving their label Interscope last month. He said the EP is being made "for the fans. It's like a post-being-off-the-label celebration". There will also be more music, as they will go back to the studio in February after a tour of Australia. They plan to release a new album at the end of 2013. Barker concluded: "The rule is there's no rules."
