Tom DeLonge's Angels and Airwaves Preview

Published: 2005-12-12
Former Blink-182 guitarist, Tom DeLonge, doesn't just want to change the music landscape, but wants to "usher in an entire new culture of the youth, obsessed with new music of the future".

DeLonge is talking about his new band, Angels and Airwaves. Besides directing the band's videos and donating his time to charity, he will be launching a world tour and completing the film that goes along with the debut album of his new band as well. He truly wants to motivate young kids to get off the couch and do something.

There are 10 songs on the album and the total running time of the album will be over an hour. Some of the songs titles are "Start the Machine", "It Hurts", and "The Adventure". Come January the first single and video will be released, which is still unknown for now. Could this be the Green Day of 2006 or just another Blink-182 copycat flying under the musical radar? Is this the new rock and roll revolution we have finally been waiting for? It will remain to be seen. Expect Angels and Airwaves to dominate the pop masses in just a few weeks.

yea i'm really excited too! cant wait for this album! i hope it's more like boxcar racer than blink 182 because i really loved boxcar. i know i definitely won't be disappointed because, after all, it is Tom delonge, and all of his work is amazing.

yeha i agree--boxcar racer is the best and i'd actually rather delonge did another boxcar album rather than something completely different.

I really can't wait for their CD comes out because It's friggin Tom Delonge from Blink182 and who couldn't just pass that up to hear that amazing type of music plus I really hear alot of good things from my underground crew.... Ya know so just sit back and love it.

Wow, man. I can't wait for the cd to come out in may. My friend told me about some songs on the cd, but I didn't listen because he's gonna ruin it for me. It's like being anxious to see a movie, and seeing a preview of it on tv. It takes away a part of the whole plot. So, I just can't wait. I know that this is going to be one of the best bands that I know. Adam, Tom, David, and Ryan, good job!

No, they aren't gonna be the Green Day of 2006... They're gonna be better than Green Day. To tell everybody the truth... i don't like Green Day so yeah... The song, "The Adventure" is awesome. I haven't heard anything like it and i think that Angles and Airwaves will be the most awesome band ever.

Angels and Airwaves has such a fresh sound from what Blink and boxcar.I have listened to the new single The Adventure...and the more I listen the more I think Delonge has come a long way and still has far to go. I say good luck to him and I can't wait for the new album!!

hey its a shame blink 182 broke up but it seems like tom has gotten back into the music spot light with a new band and they are awsome i hope in the near future we can get the same thing from travis barker and mark hoppus

can i just say that blink were awesome, and they souldnt have split. I went to GIVE IT A NAME last night at where AVA were performing and he had to play a blink's 'down' to get the crowd going as everyone was clearly dissapointed. He also went on to make a speach about a new rock revolution and everyone feeling the same thing at the same moment, ect. The speach was so fake and i don't know why he went to go on about all that rubbish. A bit of a letdown to be honest. Never mind Tom.

I love Tom Delonge and all of his work. He's so sweet, dontating his time to charity and all that. My friend got a tattoo of a heart with Blink 182 in the center, and R.I.P on it, because She misses blink so much. Anyway, I love angels and airwaves. Tom sounds amazing.

WOW, I just heard the angels & airwaves songs.WOW i'm amazed,I never knew music could hurt my ears!!!they suck.what is it? punk,funk,pop,rock?NO it's crud!!!

i saw the video and i was in shock. because i rather see another blink cd than anything else. well it would be different like box car. i hope its more like box should be more punk.

Tom Delonge is the coolest person ever,he's got a great voice,and he'll make angels and airwaves just as good and better then blink-182!!!!!!!

"It hurts"(#8 on the new album) is so great! If you listen well you can hear that its about the same instrument as in Whats My Age Again? from Blink 182!!! Its Great!

Angels and Airwaves might lead up to something absoulutely amazeing such as blink, Boxcar racer was pimp, but angels and airwaves feels awesome, refreshing and its now my #1 fav, Tom's an inspiration, love this stuff :)

i would really wish that tom, mark, and travis would get back together. But A&A is totally amazing but i would rather have blink 182 back together they made me laugh so much A&A is so serious.

the album is absolutly amazing! but its annoyin the fact that everyone keeps comparing it to blink i loved blink there my favourite band EVER but a+a r nothin like them, gd luck tom and the band i hope this album and everythin else goes really well 4 the guys!

i love the album...every song is beautiful. i'm in love with tom's face!!!he is absolutly gorgeous! jen is lucky!

Wow, I absolutely hate Angels and Airwaves! Un-inspired is all I can say for this band. This is not "the rock and roll revolution of our generation" that Tom Delonge claims it to be. This is another boy band that can play guitars. (very crappily i might add)
