Trippie Redd recently teamed up with Blink-182’s Travis Barker for a new deluxe edition of “Pegasus” titled “NEON SHARK vs. Pegasus.” That effort is available now and one of the tracks on it, “GERONIMO,” features Deftones’ Chino Moreno. You can stream that below:
Fever 333 have premiered a new video for “Wrong Generation.” This song features Blink-182’s Travis Barker and it serves as the title track of the band’s latest EP. Frontman Jason Aalon Butler commented:
“We were hoping to make a video that offered a similar energy and excitement to the live element of this Fever 333 project. I also wanted to give a nod to ‘Song 2‘ one of the coolest music videos ever made. Put these vibes together and we ended up with this.”
Escape The Fate have premiered a new video for their new song “Not My Problem.” The track, which features Blink-182’s Travis Barker, is from the band’s new album “Chemical Warfare,” which will be released on April 16. The following was said about the song in a press release:
“‘Not My Problem’ is an ode to self-preservation. With lyrics about not taking on the problems of others, the track fits snugly within the positive tone of ‘Chemical Warfare’. The uplifting, encouraging themes of the album speak directly to the needs of the band’s young fanbase. The work with Barker went so well that he and guitarist (and co-producer) Kevin “Thrasher” Gruft are now working together on several high-profile projects.”
As you are probably well aware of by now, pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol in Washington, D.C. earlier today (January 6) as lawmakers were counting the Electoral College votes to officially certify President-elect Joe Biden’s win. A number of rock/metal musicians have since taken to social media to comment on the insurrection, which was spurred by Trump himself. You can find some of the various reactions below:
Paul Stanley (KISS):
These are TERRORISTS. This is armed insurrection. The flames were fanned today & over time by the president & specific senators who CANNOT be allowed now to distance from or denounce what they have directly caused. Know their names. THIS is the result of their deception. Shame. pic.twitter.com/nDJhvV3b1c
When BLM protestors were marching on the confederate monuments here in Richmond, they were getting beaten with batons & tear gassed. These dudes are literally being allowed to CLIMB the Capitol building lol
When fear & hate are encouraged to assimilate steadily into the cultural zeitgeist the is ultimate result. Absolutely heart breaking & embarrassing. I see nothing patriotic or decent in the support of this idiotic, dangerous & asinine behavior. We must find a way to unite & heal
Ok, the US Capital is in lockdown. Angry, Anarchist mob worse than what they say Antifa is. Lafayette Square was ruthlessly swept by authorities in an instant for a Bible photo op yet these people are able to swarm here?? Where is the military? The National Guard? #capital#couppic.twitter.com/7DbEgVqhHT
In NYC during the summer, we saw footage of police bashing bicycles over peaceful protesters heads, ramming through a bunch with their cars, shoving @zayer_dounya for simply walking in their pathway. And this is being allowed to go on inside the Capital right now: https://t.co/eFOQjwa1MX
They’re putting one man above the country. That’s how “patriotic” these people actually are. They are traitors & should be held accountable for their actions. The fact that they are cultists & idiots is no excuse. https://t.co/XM4aNiTkah
spare me that right of the people bullshit we all know that if it was a Black or Hispanic storming the capital breaking windows and destroying property it would be a bloody mess. Because these are Trump supporters and not of color police are doing nothing. https://t.co/qVbzMhNIFw
I do not encourage any violence or riots but because these people are not Black, Hispanic ,BLM or Antifa they are allowed to destroy the capital without any push back from law enforcement. If u don’t see the racism in that then u are complacent. https://t.co/NNBUJWuTOi
You know he’s watching and loving all this.He has so much control over his supporters, so much control that he can get them to believe his lies and storm & vandalize the capital building based on a conspiracy theory he tweets, and to take millions of your dollars in donations.
According to Genius, Deftones frontman Chino Moreno will be featured on rapper Trippie Redd and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker’s new collaborative track “Geronimo.” That song is rumored to surface on Christmas Day (December 25) as part of Redd‘s “Neon Shark vs Pegasus (Deluxe: Presented by Travis Barker)” release.
Travis Barker (Blink-182), Elise Trouw, Carey Watkins, and Paul Raci have shared a reimagined take on Metallica‘s “Enter Sandman.” The cover was released in celebration of the Amazon Prime debut of the new film “Sound Of Metal.” As previously reported, that movie focuses on a punk-metal drummer struggling with hearing loss.
According to Deadline, Tom DeLonge (ex-Blink-182, etc.) will be making his directorial debut with the upcoming sci-fi film “Monsters Of California.” The movie is based off a script that the frontman co-wrote with Ian Miller.
The film is being produced by “Creepshow” producer The Cartel with Striker Entertainment in association with To The Stars Inc. and it will feature: Richard Kind (“Mad About You,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Casper Van Dien (“Starship Troopers”), Arianne Zucker (“Days of Our Lives”), Gabrielle Haugh (“Jeepers Creepers 3”), Sports Illustrated model Camille Kostek, Jack Samson, Jared Scott and Jack Lancaster. Here’s a description of it:
“Monsters Of California is a coming of age adventure with a science fiction twist that follows teenager Dallas Edwards, played by Samson, and his derelict friends on a quest for the meaning behind a series of mysterious, paranormal events in Southern California. The truths they uncover begin to unravel extraordinary secrets held tightly within the deepest levels of the Government.”
“I have been playing this story in my dreams for decades. It represents all aspects of my strange existence, including growing up in San Diego suburbia as a disaffected teenage skateboarder. I had a tight tribe of friends who never missed an opportunity to piss people off and made me laugh so hard I would cry. The camaraderie, curiosity, angst and irreverence is everything that lead me to Blink-182 and this story is layered with my obsession with the tightly blurred lines between science and science fiction.”
Blink-182 have premiered a new video for their new song “Quarantine.” You can check that out below:
Mark Hoppus commented:
“This song is about the sadness, confusion, anger and frustration we are all experiencing right now. I hope that everybody is safe and that we can get through this very soon. Can’t wait to see you all on the other side.”
Travis Barker added:
“The song was inspired by the quarantine and the crappy punk rock music we have loved to play since day one. All the drums are one take and I even sang some backup vocals. Mark sounds more pissed off than I’ve ever heard him, and I really like it.”
The lineup has been revealed for the 2021 Four Chord Music Fest. The event will take place at Wild Things Park in Washington, PA on July 17 and it will feature: Blink-182, The Used, State Champs, Mayday Parade, Four Year Strong, the Ataris, Hit the Lights, Sleep On It, Eternal Boy, Patent Pending, Keep Flying, Fortune Cove, and Look Out Loretta.
Ho99o9 recently played a three-song set with Blink-182’s Travis Barker as part of the virtual “Black Power Live” festival. That event helped raise money for organizations that are supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. Ho99o9’s performance featured their recently released songs, “Pray Or Prey” and “Christopher Dorner,” and a cover of Bad Brains‘ “Big Takeover.“
