Reposting this from the GD thread: http://www.101wkqx.com/2016/05/02/travis-barker-checks-in/

Travis talks about a possible EP coming after the album and texting funny things with tom a few times a week.

great one! travis says there's an "abundance of blink material" sitting around, and there's an EP likely set for the end of this year. RAD! we're gonna be getting more blink in 2016 than we got in the six years of the reunion, and probably more tour dates with this year and the international dates next year combined.

Would anyone be able to rip mp3s of these interviews? I have a long day of work tomorrow and no mobile data left :(

The 101WKQX one you can use the Soundcloud link (https://soundcloud.com/101wkqx/travis-barker-checks-in) on SaveFrom.net to grab the mp3

Here's the direct link for the radio 104.5 one. https://securemedia.iheart.com/media/station_content/4665/2016/05/mp3/default/wendy_talks_with_mark_hoppus_o_0_1462211513.mp3

Not sure the best way of grabbing the BBC one other than just recording it as it plays.

Full recap of the 104.5 interview with Mark for those who don't want to listen:

  • Mark's favorite track changes with his mood
  • There are "ballads" on the album (implying that there's more than just Home Is Such A Lonely Place)
  • Wrote 30 different songs before California, planned to record 1-2 more with Feldmann
  • Abandoned the original 30 after doing the first two with Feldy, proceeded to record 26 more with Feldy
  • Some of the old songs are fully done, some are just pieces
     
  • [Not Mark's words, but here are my back of the envelope calculations:]
    • Total songs with Skiba written: 30 pre-California + 26-28 California sessions = 56-58 new Blink songs in past year
    • Total unreleased songs / demos = 40-42
       
  • Unreleased songs from the California sessions could be on the next EP / album, Mark isn't sure
  • Mark isn't tired of playing any songs live
  • Album revolves around the bright side and the dark side of California as a state

Hope this helps

Hopefully the ballads aren't about high taxes, the drought and traffic haha

Hahaha I worded that quite poorly

Travis said that the new EP might be out "by the end of the year" - what a time to be a Blink fan!

Nice! That's awesome, I was really hoping they'd release some of their extra music on an EP or something.  I'm sure there will be some b-sides and stuff out there too.
