Travis Barker talks about his and blink-182's 2016

After false starts, soap opera twists and a lot of questions, Blink-182 finally put out a new album this year, which was a surprise in itself. What’s more surprising, however, is how great ‘California’ is. More than a legacy act churning out some of the same, the record is cohesive, true to the form of old but still takes it someplace new. Self-aware without trying too hard, it balances reckless abandon with heartfelt care. If you ever wondered what a Blink-182 record in 2016 was going to sound like, ‘California’ is all your hopes coming true. It’s a feeling shared by the band, as Travis Barker explains.
