A new album until the end of the year ?

Roxy Theatre "secret" show


Plus 44 - News - Roxy Theatre secret show Hollywood / Los Angeles Mark Hoppus posted a new blog entry at :

"a few weeks ago we had to cancel a +44 signing at a best buy here in los angeles at the last minute. today was the rescheduled signing, and as a thank you to the people from our hometown who are so supportive they stood in line twice, everyone who came out today got a free ticket to a secret show we are having at the roxy on july 30th. i guess it's not really a secret show, but it's a show we're doing ourselves. there are no tickets for sale, and we aren't getting paid. it's a concert for everyone who came to the signing, after missing it the first time. the roxy is where +44 played our first show ever, and we thought it would be fun to play this show at the place that started it all. also, chris holmes is going to get up onstage and do a bunch of magic tricks, and james from the morning zoo is going to be dj'ing the entire night. neither of those last two points is true, but i did keep five pairs of tickets for the show to be given away here on we'll figure it out and have it up in the next few days, so keep checking back."

Expensive Taste show review by Mark Hoppus himself


Plus 44 - News - Expensive Taste show Mark posted a review of the first Expensive Taste show on his website :

"last week, after the honda civic tour concert in houston, expensive taste had their first show ever at a club downtown. the place was packed. there was a huge line outside. paul, rob and travis warmed up in the small room behind the stage, and i documented the event in photos. the room was filled with smoke. this being their first live performance, they had to figure out which songs to play, and run through a couple of quick rehearsals before walking out and performing them. rob wrote out the set list. travis warmed up on his practice pad. paul typed on his sidekick. everyone was laughing and talking. friends and family came by to say hello and wish them luck. then it was time to play.

the show was awesome. they played six songs. people were singing along, dancing. bun b and slim thug both came out for guest appearances. the entire show was filmed. everyone had a great time. at the end of the night we all drove back to our bus at the ampitheater, with shane drunk in the very back of the escalade, threatening to wet his pants if we didn't pull over for him to use the restroom. we didn't pull over."

Mark! At The Disco


Plus 44 - News - Mark + Panic! At The Disco + What's My Age Again Mark posted a new blog entry about how he ended up on stage with Panic! At The Disco playing What's My Age Again live and acoustic :

"today i woke up on the bus in las vegas to a call letting me know that something pretty serious happened late last night after the show in los angeles. in the middle of the night one our members had a very serious family emergency. thank God everyone is okay, but subsequently +44 was not able to play the show today. everyone was bummed we missed the date, but the immediate health of our families supercedes a show anytime. we are working on rescheduling +44 to come back and play a show on our own, and will let you know when we will return.

to fill the empty slot in the show, ryan and brendon from panique a la discotech were called to come out and play a few songs acoustically. we were all hanging out backstage talking beforehand, and i mentioned that i heard panic at the disco had started off as a blink-182 cover band back in the day. somehow we hit on the idea of getting together and playing a blink song. we rehearsed what's my age again a couple of times in a dressing room and then played it during the show. the guys were really cool and it was super fun playing the song. it's a little strange to meet a couple of guys and within two hours be playing in front of a couple thousand people with them. but hey, that's what we do: bring the awesome every single day, in every single way."

Idiot Pilot Co-Production


Plus 44 - News Album - Mark Hoppus / Idiot pilot Mark Hoppus posted a new message on his website :

"last week i got a copy of the final mixed version of the idiot pilot record that i co-produced with ross robinson. very stoked to say that it came out really amazing. i worked on pre-production with michael and daniel, then had to leave to start the +44 tour and they went into to the studio with ross to record the album in earnest. of course, with ross at the helm it really sounds incredible and the songs came out awesome. i am stoked to have been a small part of the process. if you are already a fan of idiot pilot, you will be amped on this album, as it sounds like them, only times a thousand. and if you are just getting introduced to them, you will be discovering one of the most creative bands out there right now. in either case, you will have a chance to check them out on a couple of +44 shows that we are adding onto the end of the honda civic tour that you will be finding out about in the very near future. their album comes out later this year, and you can find out more about idiot pilot here. awesome."

"we'll definitely be back in the studio, probably by the end of the year. We have some ideas. We have a couple of very rough demos that we've been working on. I know that everybody has a lot of little parts of songs, and once we get into the studio we'll be putting it all together."

"I have no idea what the next album's gonna sound like, and I'm really excited about not knowing," Hoppus says. "I think that's the exciting thing about being in (+44); a song that starts out on keyboards could end up on acoustic guitar, or a song that starts off as an electronic drum beat ends up as a big rock song. We never know where any song is gonna take us, and we're open to any ideas."

Plus 44 performing What's My Age Again live


Plus 44 performed "What's My Age Again" yesterday at the Mineapolis Target Center.

Here is the message Mark wrote at :
"for the past year and a half we have been saying how +44 will never play blink-182 songs. in interviews, when people ask about it, we say it won't happen, we think it's lame, etc. last week we changed our minds. and tonight during our set we played what's my age again. you see, travis and i LOVE our history with blink-182, and it seems a shame to let those songs sit dormant forever because of what happened two years ago. and that song is SO much fun to play. so why not? it was awesome to play that song live again. we're having the time of our lives out here. see you at the shows."
