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.

It took a brush with disaster to get the members of the multiplatinum-selling pop-punk trio Blink-182 to stop giving each other the cold shoulder after a four-year "hiatus" as a band. Specifically, it took drummer Travis Barker nearly dying last September in a plane crash -- which claimed the lives of his assistant and bodyguard -- to make the group's singer-guitarist Tom DeLonge reevaluate his priorities and break the radio silence toward his bandmates.

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.

Santa Susana rules. Blink-182, one of the hottest rock bands around, will play Simi Valley's Santa Susana High School prom Saturday night. The students proved they were worthy by convincing their principal to sing one of the band's songs over the public announcement system. They tracked down some of the musicians' old yearbooks and ticket stubs. They collected signatures and photographed hundreds of bumper stickers. And they found a junior who could really spell.

You're a young musician and your rock band has been booked on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," a gig that promises a national audience and a tiny slice of TV history. You travel to NBC's Burbank studios, walk past Tom Brokaw's parking space and the Milton Berle mural and take your place at rehearsals. How cool is this? And, wow, look here comes Mr. Leno himself to welcome you. So what are your first words to him? "Uh, you see these nine dudes here?"
