It was only in July that Blink-182 made their successful pop-punk comeback with Californiathe No. 1 album that was the band's first release with Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba replacing former member Tom DeLonge. The guys are going to continue pushing the hit record with an upcoming deluxe version featuring new songs.

Travis Barker spoke to Radio X in the U.K. to reveal the Blink's new music plans. "We're actually gonna get back in the studio in a couple of weeks and work on the deluxe version of California," the band's drummer told the station. "[The deluxe album] will include some songs nobody's heard yet."

Blink-182 could have new music to play when they tour the U.K. for a summer 2017 tour, a tour Barker told the radio station he'll only be able to play if he travels "by boat" across the Atlantic Ocean.

The drummer hasn't flown since he was in a horrific 2008 plane crash that left him severely burned while four people lose their lives. Barker says he'll make the most of his 10-day trip by working out, drumming and recording for other artists in his traveling studio. 

No date has been announced for the upcoming deluxe version of California, but hopefully it's here in time for the holidays as the perfect gift for pop-punker in your life. In the meantime, get your #TBT on with a classic Fuse interview when Barker took his kids to the Grammy Awards:
