After taking some time off in the Bahamas after Blink-182‘s extensive world tour, Travis Barker was quick to jump back in the saddle. The drummer just released a photo of what is to be his second solo release, titled “Psycho White.” In an interview with Route One, a British Famous Stars & Straps retailer, Barker explained the EP was a collaboration with Yelawolf. Although excited about the EP being mixed and mastered, Barker did not reveal a release date.
In a series of Tweets to KROQ, Los Angeles, Yelawolf said, “this project is probably the most important project of my career so far .. i found my brother from another .. Opie Taylor’s on Crystal meth.” To which Barker added, “Def wanna say this project has no musical boundaries, Yelawolf & i share a brain & it made 4 good times.”
“Psycho White” will be the follow-up to Barker’s widely acclaimed debut solo album Give The Drummer Some which boasted a laundry list of A-level talent including Lil Wayne, the Game, Swizz Beatz, Rick Ross, Raekwon, RZA, Ludacris, Kid Cudi, Clipse, guitarist Tom Morello and more.
We’re likely to hear hints of Barker’s new material at this weekend’s Rock The Bells Festival in San Bernardino, CA. Barker has just announced he’s being added to the all-star line-up. The two-day, multi-stage hip-hop festival features many of Barker’s idols including Kid Cudi, J Cole, DMX w/ Eve, Common, Tyga, 2 Chainz, Yelawolf, Method Man & Red Man, KRS-One, Killer Mike and more. 2 day tickets are still available via RockTheBells.net.
