Barker shared an incredible video from his first show as the drummer of blink-182 and it’s like stepping into a time machine. The show was put on by Baltimore Audacy station HFS @104.9 and shows a young blink-182 performing as dozens of concertgoers take to the stage to jump off and crowd surf.
The blast from the past was the most welcome sight on our Insta feeds as we await a new blink-182 album.
This past February, Barker confirmed that a new blink-182 album would be coming in 2021 and reportedly feature an eclectic mix of guests including Grimes, Lil Uzi Vert, and Pharrell.
In an interview at the time, Barker said “there’s a lot of cool stuff” on blink’s upcoming album including “a song with Grimes right now that’s really, really cool that I love. There’s a song with Uzi that’s really, really cool that we did with Pharrell.”
While the prospect of blink-182 teaming up with the likes of Lil Uzi Vert to release a Hip Hop track is exciting, Barker said that won’t be the case. “I mean, it’s not like Blink’s making a rap song or anything. It’s like bringing Uzi over to our world,” he said.
“So it’s more of a punk kind of like reggae feeling song. I don’t think Blink will ever be anything but a pop-punk band.”
