by Epitaph

Epitaph act The Matches have been tapped to provide support for Plus 44 on their upcoming inaugural tour. The pairing is apropos in light of the work that Hoppus did on the band's new record, Decomposer.

Plus 44, made up of two-thirds of pop-punk outfit Blink 182 will be releasing their full length debut, When Your Heart Stops Beating on November 14th. The band includes Blink-182 members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker as well as guitarists Craig Fairbaugh (of Mercy Killers, ex-Lars Frederickson and the Bastards/The Forgotten) and Shane Gallagher (the Nervous Return).

Dates for the tour were posted earlier. The tour kicks off in little over a week.
