Travis Barker is helming an upcoming tribute album to Sublime to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the band’s 1996 self-titled album.

The Blink-182 drummer will produce the record, which will feature various covers, remixes and “collaborations with artists of all genres.”

Surviving Sublime members Bud Gaugh and Eric Wilson also will be taking part in various upcoming activities in honor of the milestone anniversary, including a virtual plaque ceremony that will commemorate the album’s millions in sales.

Additionally, a new video for the song “Garden Grove” has been released, which you can watch now on YouTube.

“I can’t believe it’s been 25 years since self-titled album has come out,” says Gaugh. “It’s really cool, there’s not a day that goes by that I do not hear one of our songs on the radio, in a bar, store, or in a car driving by. I constantly meet people who tell me that Sublime has helped them through a hard time or has helped them change their lives because of our stories, our music and the messages within our music.”

Other 25th anniversary celebrations include the upcoming $5 at the Door graphic novel and the limited edition AleSmith Sublime Mexican Lager beer cans.

Sublime the album, which was the group’s third studio effort, was released July 30, 1996, just two months after frontman Bradley Nowell tragically died of a heroin overdose at age 28. It spawned the hit singles “Santeria,” “What I Got” and “Wrong Way.”
