Travis Barker of Blink-182 to release solo album

01/18/2011 by Corinne Heller

Travis Barker, drummer of the pop punk band Blink-182, is set to release his first solo album, "Give the Drummer Some" on March 15, which includes the first single "Can a Drummer Get Some," a track that features music artists Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, The Game and Swizz Beatz.

Among the 12 songs set to appear on the album are "Devil's Got a Hold of Me" featuring hip hop group Slaughterhouse, "Misfits" with Steve Aoki, "Cool Head" with Kid Cudi, Don't (Expletive) With Me" with Paul Wall, Kurupt and J Roc, "City of Dreams" with The Clipse and Kobe and "On My Own," featuring Slipknot's Corey Taylor, Interscope Records announced.

Barker has already released two tracks from the album on iTunes - "Jump Down" and "Carry It." A deluxe version of "Give the Drummer Some" will contain a total of 16 songs.

Blink-182 rose to fame in the 1990s and is known for commercial hits such as "What's My Age Again" and "All the Small Things." The group took a break from touring and recording in 2005. Three years later, Barker and Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein survived a plane crash. Goldstein died a year later from an accidental drug overdose.

Blink-182 is set to make a comeback with a new album and tour, singer and bass player Mark Hoppus said in November.

The trio plans to release its sixth studio album in the spring. Blink-182 will perform concerts in the United Kingdom between July 8 and July 18, marking the band's first arena tour in seven years, Hoppus said.
