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.

Happy 10th Anniversary to Angels & Airwaves!
This is the perfect #ThrowbackThursday post! It was exactly 10 years ago, this week (well, yesterday to be exact) that Angels & Airwaves released their debut single, ‘The Adventure’.
The single marked the official start of Tom DeLonge‘s latest project (alongside David Kennedy, Atom Willard and Ryan Sinn), which has captured the hearts of many. I can’t believe 10 years have passed!
The song has been featured on several games and been used in several television programmes, including a trailer for Smallville.
The band’s imagery was a blend of space and World War II, which married with their unique and epic sound, made for an incredibly cinematic experience. The music video is perfect for the sound of the song, and if you haven’t seen it, you most definitely need to watch it, below.
