    A new band has formed out of the wreckage of Blink 182. Bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker have formed the band Plus 44 with former Get The Girl star Carol Heller.

    MTV News for more on this story:

    Frontman Hoppus tells MTV News, "It's very exciting, like a breath of fresh air."

    "It's all very electronic right now. We have a girl singing part of the vocals. She and I are trading off vocals. Travis is going on the Warped Tour with the Transplants, and we'll record up until he leaves. And if the record's done at that point, we'll release the record later this year."

    The name for the new group is a reference to the country code needed when placing a phone call to the United Kingdom, because that's where Hoppus and Barker first discussed the new band.

    Haha, sounds good. Do they still get on with Tom, or did something happen between them?

    Tom is said to be starting a side project aswell. As for BCR, he said he'd only do it if Travis really wanted to.

    I was never really a "fan" of Blink. Their music was pretty good. But as far as the band goes, I always thought they were a little arrogant. As for Plus 44, we'll see.

    This could be pretty coolt hey finally dropped the part of Blink 182 that I didn't like. As for Blink splitting up I heard they are supposed to have new material soon so I dont think they did.

    The same thing that happened the last time the band split and went into side projects.

    They'll get back soon enough...

    But Plus 44 looks interesting. I'm interested to see what kind of music they make.

    Question: Did Blink182 break up? :wth:

    I know that may be slightly off topic, but somebody told me this some time ago and I don't believe it's true. I figured it was best to ask it here.

    No, they're just taking a break for a while to work on other things. It's just like the break they took between TOYPAJ and their latest album.

    I think its done some good for them because they definetly matured from Take Off Your Pants and Jacket to their self-titled album. Wonder what the next Blink album will sound like after this break.
