He continued: "For us, it was always like, 'Blink is Blink, man. We just want to sound like fucking Blink-182'. That's why we're in this band. We love Blink, and we love the sound of Blink."

About the new album that's been recorded with Matt Skiba and producer John Feldmann, Travis said: "I think it's touching on everything that Blink-182 is and has been over the past 20 years."
