The platinum-selling punks of Blink-182 have set a November 7 release date for the band’s upcoming live album, “The Mark, Tom And Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back),” which will include one new studio track, “Man Overboard.”
Blink-182, which performed at the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the U.K. over the weekend, recorded material for the concert album during its spring-summer tour earlier this year with Bad Religion and Fenix TX.
Halfway through that tour, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker was sidelined after injuring his hand in a parking lot scuffle in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio (see “Blink-182 Drummer Injures Hand, Will Sit Out Tour” ).
Fenix TX guitarist Damon Delapaz took up the drumsticks and stood in for Barker on the remaining tour dates, although only the shows that featured Barker will be included on the upcoming concert album.
The new song, “Man Overboard,” was cut at recent sessions with producer
Jerry Finn, who also manned the boards for Blink-182′s 1999 breakthrough, “Enema Of The State.”
On September 7, Blink-182 is set to make its second straight performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, graduating to the main stage after performing at the pre-show event last year (see “DMX, Blink-182, Chili Peppers, Dre Join VMA Lineup”).
