Blink-182 Goes Way Out Travis Barker told Rolling Stone that Blink 182's digital EP due this Christmas is "a hundred times better than Neighborhoods because we're all in a room together."

Barker described their reunion album Neighborhoods as a difficult enterprise especially since he was recovering from a near fatal plane crash. "Dude, I was still healing," said Barker. "I had scabs all over my body and was, like, a bloody mess. It was just way too soon."

Barker describes the new songs as "really really cool," "way out," and even "folky." Look for a new album later next year.
