Plus 44 is a new electronic band consisting of Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker of Blink-182, Shane Gallagher of The Nervous Return and Graig Fairbaugh of The Mercy Killers. The group got it's name from the international dialing code to the UK, because it is where Mark and Travis first discussed doing the project.

______________________________________________________

"It's all very electronic right now. We have a girl [Carol] 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.

- Mark Hoppus (from MTV.com)

"If Blink was the daytime, Plus 44 is the nighttime. It's such a departure from Blink, but it's amazing. I play all the drums, but they're electronic drums, plus I play piano and keyboard on it. And I've been making beats for it. ... I am just going to keep working on stuff. Everything's A-plus."

- Travis Barker (from MTV.com)

Meh....I'll probably get their album when it comes out, but I'm not all that excited for it. I like Tom's voice better.

They might be better off without her, I don't know if she'd really go with the whole vibe they seem to be aiming for =/

Ahem, Carol was never really in +44, Mark just said she was doing some vocals for them!

That would be because when the official website site was first 'launched' in a way, there were three band members on it: Carol Heller, Mark Hoppus & Travis Barker. When you rolled the mouse over each picture, and information pop-up thing appeared with their roles in +44, previous bands, ages, and other information.
Heller was on the original website.
