Keen. On. This.

It may have been 11 years since +44 announced their indefinite hiatus, but that doesn't mean that the door has closed on the band forever.

In a recent interview with Wall Of Sound in Australia, +44 frontman Mark Hoppus talked about the potential of a future reunion, and how much the band (and their debut album 'When Your Heart Stops Beating'). 

When asked if there was any chance of a reunion, Mark shared, "Maybe - I would never say never."

He added, "I haven’t talked to Craig (Fairbaugh) or Shane (Gallagher) in years, and I think that they have moved on in their own lives, and we’re in a different place."

Mark also talked about how important +44 is to him, and how it helped him process the "death" of blink-182, sharing "That album ('When Your Heart Stops Beating') holds such a special place in my life and in my memory. And the lyrics and the making of that album was a huge moment of me working through the death of blink-182 at the time, and that holds a really special place in my heart - so I would love to play it again at some point."

+44 went on hiatus in 2008, after blink-182 had made the decision to re-form.
