New Blink-182 EP '100 Times Better Than 'Neighborhoods''
Blink-182 announced earlier this week that their new EP will be out in time for Christmas. Now, talking to Rolling Stone, drummer Travis Barker has revealed some new details about the project, promising that it will be better than 2011's comeback album Neighborhoods because the band are all working in the studio together: "To me already, this EP is a hundred times better than Neighborhoods because we're all in a room together." Neighborhoods was, for the most part recorded remotely, with the band sending tracks to each other via e-mail. And while this approach produced some material that Barker liked, he didn't feel the project gelled: "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." Barker has also stated that one of the songs from the new EP, which is the first record that the band will release independently of a record label will have a 'folky' edge: "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." The promise of 'folk' Blink comes after bassist/vocalist Mark Hoppus expressed his admiration for recent pop-folk success story Mumford And Sons, with Hoppus noting that the band had made their TV debut on his television show. Like the sound of 'folk' Blink? Or worried that the band are getting away from their punk-rock roots? Let us know in the comments.
