Shane Gallagher, circa 2007
In 2005, Gallagher left The Nervous Return to join Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker (both of blink-182 fame) and guitarist Craig Fairbaugh to form +44. He was brought in as a replacement for Carol Heller as guitarist in +44 after she left the band to start a family. In 2007, he officially became a member of The Mercy Killers and he went on tour with them. Once +44 took a break so Mark and Travis could focus on the new blink-182 record,Shane worked on several different musical projects including the Noise Chapter with ex-members of one of his previous bands called the Scrimmage Heroes as well as the present all instrumental, acoustic act A Death To Stars.
