Angels & Airwaves are back!

Hands down, this is my all-time favourite band, ever and I am so pleased to see they are making a triumphant return to music!

Today (Tuesday 30th April), Tom Delonge and co, have released their first single in 3 years, ‘Rebel Girl’, marking somewhat of a return to their trademark, sci-fi meets industrial, stadium rock sound. However, there is definitely still a large amount of their more recent (The Dream Walker) influences too – probably in part due to Ilan Rubin and Aaron Rubin‘s hands in the writing. What’s more, it looks like David Kennedy and Matt Wachter are back too….though Matt doesn’t appear to be in the promo shots…curious!

“‘Rebel Girl’ is a space-age love song that combines my enduring obsession for New Wave, pop punk and anthemic rock and roll music,” says DeLonge. This would appear to be the signs of the band’s upcoming album release, and is believed to also coincide with a feature film too…it’s all very exciting!

It seems that in the 3 years since the band released their last EP, they have now signed a deal with Rise Records, also announcing their first live shows in seven years! Sadly, at the moment it would appear to be just a North American tour, but I have just about everything crossed for a mini UK tour…or even just a London date or two!

Unfortunately no music video has emerged yet, but we’ll keep you updated when one drops…in the meantime, enjoy the visual below.

All I have left to say is just, ‘Hell yeah!’ They’re back, the track is awesome and I can’t wait for the latest era of Angels & Airwaves to really take off!!!

#FeelGoodFriday: Angels & Airwaves – ‘The Adventure (Acoustic)’

It’s been just over 10 years since Angels & Airwaves released their debut album, We Don’t Need To Whisper and in celebration of that, Tom DeLonge has re-recorded acoustic versions of 4 fan favourites, on a special We Don’t Need To Whisper Acoustic EP (released on iTunes today).

Their debut single, ‘The Adventure’, was released in 2006 and reached Number 20 in the UK charts, kicking off a fantastic side-project for Tom DeLonge and co. Since then, the band has had a few member changes but that hasn’t stopped them branching out from music into feature films, graphic novels, novels and more.

This track is a refreshing take on the original and is just as beautifully captivating and uplifting, just in a different way. It may have been stripped back but it hasn’t lost any of the passion or essence that made the original so exceptional. My only flaw with the EP is that I would have loved the whole album to have been re-recorded in this style.

No music video has been made as yet but the lyric video serves as a brilliant companion piece with a series of behind the scenes footage from the era of the debut album’s inception and recording.

What are your thoughts on this acoustic version of ‘The Adventure’? Have you got a #FeelGoodFriday track for us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via social media.
