The busiest drummer around, Blink-182�s Travis Barker, is onto yet another new project. This time he�s teaming up with Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong to help lead the new group, The Transplants. This will be Travis� third band and second Blink side project, as he and fellow Blink member Tom DeLonge have already been working on releasing an album from a side-band they formed called Box Car Racer. Compared to Blink-182, Box Car Racer is said to be heavier while the newest band The Transplants has been hinted to involve the Blink drummer�s �hip hop influences.� The newest group will begin recording new material once Travis finishes with his current commitments. Blink-182 are currently on their �Pop Disaster Tour� with Green Day. The only Canadian date for the tour is in Toronto on June 7th.
