Travis Barker Announces September Release for Solo Debut
Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has been upping his producer resume over the past few years, and in February, he announced that he was finally planning his debut solo album.
On Wednesday (May 19), the famous drummer announced, via Twitter (@trvsbrkr), that the album is officially slated for September.
Since announcing his album, Barker has been hard at work, collaborating with some of music's biggest stars to craft a project that reflect his broad range of musical tastes.
In a past interview with Spinner.com, he explained what fans should expect.
"I just love music. The more I can be around it the better, so with my album it's no one genre," Barker said. "It goes from everything from punk rock to hip-hop to some electro stuff on there to a metal song with Corey Taylor from Slipknot. It's been really fun and interesting up till now."
Confirmed guests for the as-yet-titled project include hip-hop stars like Lil Wayne, RZA, The Game, Paul Wall, Bun B and The Clipse, while other featured guests include the likes of Corey Taylor of Slipknot, famed guitarist Slash and a slew of others.
Further details, regarding producers, etc, are currently unknown. However, Barker -- being a producer himself -- will likely handle the bulk of its production.
Additionally, Barker is working on a new Transplants album. The side-project featuring himself, vocalist "Skinhead" Rob Aston and Rancid vocalist/guitarist Tim Armstrong, who have released two full-lengths albums since forming in 1999 (a self-titled debut in 2002 and 2005's Haunted Cities). They went on a hiatus in 2006, but Barker revealed earlier this year that they would create yet another.
