Tom DeLonge: "Rifare i Box Car Racer con Travis Barker non sarebbe interessante?"

Dopo che alcune settimane fa Tom DeLonge aveva parlato di alcuni piani cool con Travis Barker, un fan ha chiesto a Tom su Instagram se è in programma un ritorno dei Box Car Racer con Travis. Tom DeLonge ha risposto in maniera un po’ criptica, perché, se avesse dimenticato il punto di domanda, la risposta sarebbe «Non sarebbe interessante?», mentre in caso contrario avrebbe scritto «Non sarebbe interessante».

Nessun futuro per i Box Car Racer

Tom ha annunciato ad Mtv l'intenzione di non fare un altro album dei Box Car Racer. Quando il tour dei blink-182 finirà DeLonge prenderà una lunga pausa. "Solleverò dei pesi e correrò davvero forte, e magari suderò abbastanza", ha detto scherzando, dicendo poi che non ha intenzione di dar vita ad un altro album dei Box Car Racer.

As if touring the world, racking up hit single after hit single, getting married and enduring back surgery isn’t enough to fill his time, blink-182’s Tom DeLonge has spent his few free moments writing and recording material for a side-project named Boxcar Racer, which will be released by MCA Records on May, 14, 2002.
Says DeLonge, “This record is directly influenced by the bands that mean the most to me – Fugazi, Refused, and, of course, blink-182. It’s a tribute to the music that made me want to be in a band in the first place.”
DeLonge wrote all the material, played both lead guitar and bass, and sang on the yet to be titled album. Rounding out the band is blink-182 drummer Travis Barker (who also provided arrangements for several songs on the album), and Dave Kennedy, from punk band Over My Dead Body, on rhythm guitar. A bass player will be selected shortly for the band’s live performances. Additionally, Mark Hoppus, the other third of the blink-182 trio, lends his voice to one track on the album. Explains DeLonge, “Mark is really supportive (of Boxcar), and having his vocals on it means a lot to me.”
Boxcar Racer, who began recording in December, is currently in post-production at San Diego’s Signature Sound. Barker’s drum tracks were recorded at LA’s Larabee East, and the rest of the album was recorded at Signature Sound. Jerry Finn, who has produced the last three blink-182 records (as well as albums from Green Day, Sum-41, etc.) also took the helm for Boxcar Racer.
blink-182 will be hitting the road this spring/summer on the “Pop Disaster Tour,” co-headlining with Green Day (Jimmy Eat World opening). Prior to “Pop Disaster,” Boxcar Racer will schedule a run of live shows. DeLonge enthuses, “We’ll be playing smaller venues then Travis and I have played in a long time. This is going to be really fun. Kids are going to be stoked and so are we.”
