The house is one of hundreds just like it in a development in this North San Diego County suburb: your basic two-story, stucco scoop of middle-class vanilla set at the edge of a golf course, with a white SUV in the driveway and some new flowers in the small yard fighting to add a little color. Inside, homeowner Mark Hoppus puts the Tupperware away in the kitchen, while his business partners Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker sit at the breakfast table going over plans for an upcoming trip.

That "indefinite hiatus" announced last year by Blink-182 just got a little more definite. Two members of the Southern California punk-rock trio, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker, announced Tuesday that their new band, (+44), will release its debut album, "When Your Heart Stops Beating," through Interscope Records on Nov. 14. Blink's other member, singer-guitarist Tom DeLonge, has already found success with his new band, Angels and Airwaves.

The members of Blink-182, the San Diego trio that has sold close to 11 million albums in the U.S. with its pop-punk sound and potty humor, announced Tuesday that they are taking "an indefinite hiatus" from their partnership. The statement from bassist Mark Hoppus, guitarist Tom DeLonge and drummer Travis Barker was issued four days after the band canceled its scheduled set at a tsunami relief benefit at the Arrowhead Pond and amid much fan speculation that the group had broken up.

Maybe Lollapalooza would not have turned into Lollapaloozer this year if they'd just tapped No Doubt to headline. The perky little band from Anaheim, which with help from Blink-182 packed about 40,000 fans into Hyundai Pavilion in Devore on Saturday, might have added the marquee power that the Pixies, Morrissey, Flaming Lips and String Cheese Incident didn't muster, prompting the recent cancellation of this year's tour.

More than 19,000 students attend UC Irvine to explore a world of ideas and experiences, but since 1997, live punk-rock music hasn't been part of that world. That changes Friday, when the San Diego punk trio Blink-182 plays a sold-out concert at the Bren Events Center.

Potty punk--that may be the best way to describe the goofy, catchy rock of Blink-182, a San Diego-area trio that aspires to the comedic accomplishments of Beavis & Butt-head and seems to approach life like class clowns strolling through a world of substitute teachers.
