An alternative rock act originally intended to be a largely electronic-based project which was named after the international dialing code for the U.K, +44 was formed by two founding members of Blink-182, drummer Travis Barker and lead vocalist also bassist Mark Hoppus. The establishment of the band began to take shape right after the announcement of Blink-182's indefinite hiatus in February 2005 when the pair realized that they actually still wanted to keep working in music under the same roof. Wanting to materialize the desire, both of them quickly decided to get back as a union to then write and record songs together before finally fixing their mind to make demos.
