Forming in the wake of pop-punk trio blink-182's 2005 hiatus, (+44) -- pronounced Plus 44 -- brought blink alums Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus back together. Originally billed as a largely electronic-based project, their name came from the international dialing code to the United Kingdom, where the duo first discussed doing the project. The two initially hooked up with vocalist Carol Heller of Get the Girl, but by summer 2006, rumors began swirling that she was no longer in the band. A month later, it was quietly publicized that (+44) instead included guitarists Shane Gallagher (the Nervous Return) and Craig Fairbaugh (Mercy Killers, Lars Fredericksen & the Bastards, the Forgotten). Their debut album is slated for a fall 2006 release.
"please understand, this isn`t just goodbye, this is I can`t stand you..." - Plus 44 - No It Isn`t
Electronic side project of former blink-182 members Travis Barker
and Mark Hoppus
alongside former Get The Girl guitarist Carol Heller
They have released one song "No It Isn't" through the internet and myspace and have yet to release anymore footage. Their debut album is expected to be released in the summer of 2006.
Plus 44 are an electronic side project.
Their main influences are old 80's rock/punk such as The Cure and newer electronic bands such as The Postal Service.
A band started by former Blink-182 members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. These two guys are totally cool, but clearly get their fandom from Blink-182 fans. Again with this band, like Angel's and Airwaves, people only listen to this band because former Blink-182 members are in it, and again nobody cares about the other members.
This band is pretty much Blink-182, a little softer and no random, funny songs. Although it is more like Blink than Angel's and Airwaves, it will never be as great as the mighty Blink-182 empire.
The band Plus 44 is okay, but I'd rather see Blink-182. (:
a band formed after the split up of blink 182. with mark hoppus and travis barker. also a female vocalist from "get the girl" Carol Heller.
also brittish dialing code!!
Plus 44 has Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker from Blink 182, as well as a couple of other people.
