Blink-182 drummer Scott Raynor, 19, has left the band, reportedly to return to school, and is being replaced by now-former Aquabats drummer Travis Barker.
Barker had been a relatively recent addition to the Aquabats, replacing Rod Arellano. Barker, in turn, has been replaced in the Aquabats by Gabe Palmer.
Barker joins Blink-182 bandmates Mark Hoppus (bass) and Tom Delonge (guitar). The punkish, San Diego-based trio, formerly known as Blink, will be kicking off a new cross-country tour beginning July 28 in Ventura, Calif. They’re supporting their latest single, “Josie,” from their album “Dude Ranch.”
The Aquabats, best known for their caped crusader ska persona, are currently on the road with the Warped tour.
