Almost Acoustic Christmas: Photos, recaps, interviews, and more!

Travis Barker and Yelawolf have taken a somewhat different approach to promoting their Psycho White collaboration. Rather than releasing a single and promoting it for months with help from an accompanying video, they’ve opted to roll videos for all six tracks one after the other in rapid-fire succession.

The duo’s first video release accompanied the fast-paced track “Push ‘Em,” and featured a rowdy crowd of tattooed punks moshing to Barker’s beat in a downtown L.A. warehouse. Second to hit the small screen was “Whistle Dixie,” an eerie video set in a morgue featuring legendary bad-ass Danny Trejo presiding over a dead body while a legion of snare drum-toting Second Line-style skeletons march through a spooky cemetery.

Barker and his rapping Psycho White counterpart chose Los Angeles’ famed Roxy Theater on Sunset Blvd. to set the tone for their third video installment. The band set up shop in and around the Roxy, performing on stage, hanging out in a graffitied alley and punctuated with skateboarding shots from a nearby half-pipe. Verses are rapped by the country fresh Yelawolf while the chorus is buttoned up by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, who doubled as the video’s director. To find him, look no further than the guy with the tattooed head, giant beard and bloodied brow.

The self-titled Psycho White EP is available everywhere.
