Matt Skiba Talks Blink’s Upcoming Record

In a recent interview with Matt Skiba’s other band, Alkaline Trio, the musician shared a little detail about the upcoming Blink-182 album.

Alkaline Trio vocalist Dan Andriano joked that Blink would have to change their name because the tracks he’d heard were black metal, Matt said: “There are actually blast beats on one of the songs – Travis did that for me.”

Blast beats is a drumming style which is usually associated with black metal and death metal- so basically, not typically in pop-punk music.
