Tom DeLonge's Angels & Airwaves Returns With New Song, Tour
Angels & Airwaves, the band led by former Blink-182 singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge, has returned with a new song and dates and venues for its first tour in seven years. The tune, called "Rebel Girl," is the band's first new music in three years and is the lead track from an upcoming Angels & Airwaves album and feature film project.
DeLonge said, "'Rebel Girl is a space-age love song that combines my enduring obsession for New Wave, pop punk and anthemic rock and roll music. As some of you might’ve heard, I recently took a brief minute to start up an aerospace company, so you never know -- I may play this song from a satellite deep in space, beamed toward everyone’s house viciously on repeat."
DeLonge told us a while back that he saw Angels & Airwaves as an enhancement of the music he started out playing with Blink: "As an extension of what Blink was, a band that really made people feel good and funny, I kinda transformed that into something that made people feel really good, but from the inside out. Like an energy, more of like an electricity that's coming from in your soul, because I wanted to make a band about this spiritual awakening."
Angels & Airwaves will take "Rebel Girl" on the road as they launch a North American headlining tour on September 4th in Phoenix. The show will take place almost seven years to the day of their last performance, which was September 2nd, 2012 in Bologna, Italy. Tickets for the trek go on sale this Friday, May 3rd, at noon local time.
