As Travis Barker readies the release of his upcoming solo debt, Can A Drummer Get Some, he has been dropping little tidbits off the album to wet fans’ appetites.
In addition to new singles, music videos (“Carry It” and “Jump Down”), and even a mixtape, Barker has slowly revealed crazy artwork for each track, which were created by renowned artists from around the world and different industries.
He first unveiled the album’s official coverart, in late January, created by legendary rock and roll cover artist Pushead, who’s crafted artwork for the likes of Metallica and the classic coverart for Kool Keith’s Dr. Octagon in the past. At the time of the unveiling, Barker’s camp also revealed that there would be “visual representations” for every track on the album, and has since slowly released the artwork, one-by-one, as his album release date nears.
So far, about eight have been unveiled (below) — including works by Japanese artist Usugrow, Chris Peters, Los Angeles-bred David Choe, Risk, Chase Tafoya, Slick (Dissizit), and Transplants’ frontman Skinhead Rob.
Other works yet to be released including ones by Jeff Soto, Maxx242, Mister Cartoon, Dire One, Haze, Mike Giant and many more.
On Wednesday (March 9) at Los Angeles’ Live! On Sunset, Barker will drop the full line-up of artwork for the album via an art show and listening party for Can A Drummer Get Some. The event will feature all the artists who contributed to his album, as well as a music by Mix Master Mike, and a “special guest performance”, according to the flier.
