Biography

Los Angeles, United States (2005 – 2009)

Formed in 2005 in Los Angeles, CA, +44 was a band from two blink-182 members Mark Hoppus (Bass Guitar/Vocals) and Travis Barker (Drums/Keyboards), who has also played in a variety of musical projects including The Aquabats, Box Car Racer, and Transplants. +44 also featured Shane Gallagher (Lead Guitar), from The Nervous Return, and Craig Fairbaugh (Rhythm Guitar/Backing Vocals), from Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards, The Forgotten, and Mercy Killers.

It also once featured Carol Heller (Guitar/Backing Vocals), formerly of Get the Girl, but she later left the band to start a family. She is heard as backup vocalist in 3 of the tracks on the first album. The name +44 is a reference to the international dialing code for the United Kingdom, where Hoppus and Barker first discussed the new project.

On December 13th, 2005 (Tom Delonge’s birthday), the band released a demo of the song “No It Isn’t”. Hoppus insists that, while it was directed towards Delonge’s breaking up of blink-182, the release date was just coincidental. On September 1st 2006, they added a song called “Lycanthrope” to their official website, http://www.plusfortyfour.com. Also on September 7th, the +44 Song “When Your Heart Stops Beating” was played on KROQ radio. On September 18th, an unedited version of the song was posted on the band’s MySpace profile.

Their debut album “When Your Heart Stops Beating” was released on November 14, 2006.
