Barker revealed what he’s working on replying to a fan on Instagram. He shared a picture of himself drumming with Antemasque, the new band formed by At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta’s Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala.

Asked what his plans for 2016 were, he replied, “new Blink-182 album, albums with Antemasque, two EPs with Transplants and a solo album.”

Earlier this year Barker told NME that the band have recorded five new songs with Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio, including one called ‘Punk Rock Cliché’.


Skiba joined the group earlier this year after frontman Tom DeLonge parted ways with the band. Mark Hoppus and bandmate Barker announced their split when the singer allegedly refused to enter the studio and record a new album with them.

Asked how the new material is sounding, Barker admitted some things have obviously changed with DeLonge no longer in the band.

“They sound different but still the same,” the drummer said of the new music. “Obviously, it’s Matt Skiba singing so there’s hints of Alkaline Trio, or at least Matt’s contributions to Alkaline Trio, mixed with my drumming and Mark’s voice and stuff. It’s really cool and I really love what we’ve done so far.”
