The pop punk trio will be putting out the EP in three different packages, including the Santa's Lap package, which includes a t-shirt, limited edition poster, wrapping paper and a Christmas card, the Nice package, which includes a hoodie, wrapping paper and card and the Naughty package, which includes a shirt and card.
drummer Travis Barker
recently said that the band have written a "very folky
" new song. The track will feature on the EP.
He laughed while explaining the track, saying: "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
He added that the EP, which was recently recorded in Los Angeles, is a massive improvement on the band's last album "Neighborhoods
", which was laid down remotely.
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
Earlier this year, Barker promised that "the best is yet to come
" from the band. The trio released "Neighborhoods" in 2011 and then parted ways
with major label Interscope Records earlier this year.
