Blink-182 has released an update on the health of drummer Travis Barker, who was recently diagnosed with blood clots, which forced the postponement their residency at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas last month. Barker was also diagnosed with a staph infection.

"It's been the longest four weeks without playing drums. I played through two shows in Vegas with infection and blood clots before I was able to get a clear diagnosis from a doctor. Here's an update on my road to recovery," Barker in a new video the band recently posted on Twitter.

The video shows Barker backstage during the show where he first felt pain in his arm, and later at a medical evaluation where his doctor tells him to take a break from drumming for a few weeks.

The band said that Barker "will be prevented from playing until the beginning of July when everything will be reevaluated."
