SRCVinyl will be expanding their ''Blink-182'' related catalog with the reissue of +44's ''When Your Heart Stops Beating'' on limited, audiophile vinyl. The album is mastered for vinyl and lacquers created by Kevin Gray, Cohearent Audio. It has been plated and pressed at RTI. The album will be pressed on a limited blue colored LP.
Former blink-182 co-founders Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker have reunited under the aegis of a new band, (+44), and will release their much anticipated album, When Your Heart Stops Beating on Interscope Records. The album is produced by Hoppus and Barker and executive produced by long-time blink-182 producer Jerry Finn. Recruited for their new journey as (+44) pronounced Plus (+44) Shane Gallagher (The Nervous Return) and Craig Fairbaugh (Transplants, The Forgotten, Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards) join singer-bassist Hoppus and drummer-keyboardist Barker and pick up where the popular, multi-platinum-selling band blink-182 left off after splitting in late 2004. We were twothirds of blink-182, so we're not afraid of sounding like ourselves, says Hoppus. We're not divorcing ourselves from the past, but we are pushing beyond the past. We're progressing like musicians should. Barker agrees: Mark and I have a natural chemistry after playing together for so long and it's only gotten stronger. This band is a continuation of blink-182 but it's also different. For a long time, blink-182 was an underdog. I like being the underdog again.
