Just ahead of his headline show at Los Angeles’ famed STAPLES Center, ILLENIUM shares the Travis Barker remix of his smash single “Good Things Fall Apart” with Jon Bellion. Get it HERE via Astralwerks.
The legendary blink-182 drummer hops behind the kit and re-energizes the track with powerful and propulsive live drums as well as kinetic remixing. His contributions expand the soundscape and add a whole new dimension to the tune. “In my head I pictured all these other parts and sounds from the moment I heard the song. I recorded drums first with all the other parts in my head and then built around it. It was such a well written song already it made my job easy,” says Barker. Plus, he dropped a dynamic drum cover video of “Good Things Fall Apart.” Watch it below:
“Good Things Fall Apart” surpasses one benchmark after another. It recently scored a gold certification from the RIAA for consumption in excess of 500,000. It spent 26 weeks on the Alternative Radio Chart and achieved Top 5 in audience. Global streams to date eclipse 179 million and counting. Check out the cinematic sci-fi music video HERE.
“Good Things Fall Apart” remains just one of many standouts from his third full-length album, Ascend—available HERE. Upon arrival, it claimed #1 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart and #1 on iTunes Top Dance Albums Chart in addition to bowing in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200. DJ Mag chronicled his rise with an extensive six-page feature. PopMatters also applauded his“unique ability to present modern dubstep and bass music with a deep melodicism and knack for hooks.”
Right now, he’s finishing up his biggest tour to date, The ASCEND Tour, which included a sold-out show at NYC’s Madison Square Garden and three sold-out evenings at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The ASCEND Tour rolls through LA’s STAPLES Center where he plays on December 7. Check out the remaining dates below. Kicking off the new year, he also performs at the 2020 X-Games in Aspen, CO this January.
