More Numbers For Blink

Yet another band is under way for the members of Blink-182.

Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker have formed (+44), named for the international dialing code for the U.K.

What this means for Blink-182 is unclear – the third band member, Tom DeLonge, is currently in Angels And Airwaves with the drummer from Boxcar Racer, which Barker was in.

A statement from the band is filled with hints that Blink-182 is no mas.

“Plus 44” is “not a side project or experiment,” and Barker is referred to as the former drummer for Blink-182.

“We were two-thirds of Blink-182, so we’re not afraid of sounding like ourselves,” Hoppus said.

Barker added that this is a “continuation” of the band.
