Barker announced recently that he will not be joining the band on their Australian tour due to his fear of flying.

"I have so much love for my fans. I get on a 7 day boat ride to go to Europe across the fucking Atlantic and 7 days back once a year. If they would’ve scheduled Australia around a boat schedule I would’ve made it. They didn’t though. They also didn’t schedule enough time to get from gig to gig without flying so I was forced not to go. A drummer had already been given the songs to learn more than a year ago. They hoped I could’ve got tan on a flight again but that’s likely not gonna happen as of now. Maybe one day. Not gonna get drugged up to get on a plane when I’m completely sober now. PMA and love to those who get it and understand, I appreciate you. Big bag a dicks to who don’t… Peace "
