Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has suggested their latest album "Neighborhoods" wasn't good enough, but promises fans "the best is yet to come".
He blames their long hiatus and the fact that they pieced "Neighborhoods" together from different parts of the country, but they hope to remedy that on their next release.
"We had seven years off and the last album I think was us barely getting back into the rhythm, recording an album because it was expected of us and we'd gotten back together and everyone wanted to hear new music," he told Rhythm (via NME).
He continued: "I feel like the best is yet to come, the next album is going to be exciting. For the most part the last album was recorded in different studios, we weren't always in the same room. We made it happen and it was the best it could be at the time with us three. I think in the future it can be crazy."
Blink-182 will tour Australia next year. Barker had expressed concerns about taking the long flight there after being in a plane crash in 2008, but the band have since confirmed that he will attend the tour which includes an appearance at the Soundwave festival.
