Multi-platinum rock band, Angels & Airwaves, have announced a new batch of North American winter tour dates. The first leg kicks off on Wednesday, December 4 and hits major cities including Phoenix, Chicago, Minneapolis, Houston, and more. After a short holiday break, the trek picks back up on Thursday, January 16 for a run of shows throughout Canada and the East Coast. The band will also be playing KROQ Acoustic Christmas at the Honda Center in Anaheim on Saturday, December 7. A complete touring itinerary is included below, with all tickets available for purchase HERE.
Earlier this week, Angels & Airwaves revealed the official music video for their latest song, “Kiss & Tell.” “So many issues in relationships revolve around needless miscommunication, and just missing each other’s point of view. This video represents how a few small negative moments between lovers can easily grow into much more destructive interactions over time,” explains frontman Tom DeLonge. Watch the new visual HERE.
Angels & Airwaves have also been working on their much-anticipated sixth full-length studio album, which is slated for release next year via Rise Records / BMG. The forthcoming effort will be the group’s first collection of new music since 2016’s Chasing Shadows EP. Stay tuned for more information to be announced soon.
About Angels & Airwaves:
DeLonge, a founding member of seminal pop punk band blink-182, formed Angels & Airwaves in 2005. A year later came debut album, We Don’t Need To Whisper, which hit No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and featured Top 5 modern rock hit “The Adventure.” 2007’s I-Empire followed, hitting No. 9 on The Billboard 200 and featured rock radio hit “Everything’s Magic.” In 2010, AVA released Love and a year later, Love: Part Two accompanied by a critically acclaimed film, Love, which was shown in 460 theaters nationwide during a one-night film screening and live-streamed concert event titled Love Live. The band’s last full-length album was 2014’s The Dream Walker, which hit No. 1 on iTunes and No. 5 on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums chart. A multimedia project, the album was accompanied by a graphic novel, comic books and a Blade Runner-meets Harry Potter short film, which won Best Animation at the Toronto International Short Film Festival. 2019 single, “Rebel Girl,” follows 2016’s Chasing Shadows EP, which was released alongside Sekret Machines, a novel DeLonge co-wrote with New York Times bestselling author A.J. Hartley.
In addition to his work with Angels & Airwaves, DeLonge created To The Stars, a multimedia entertainment company that creates original content across music, film, television, and publishing. To The Stars’ content plays an essential role DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a think tank of artists, scientists, intelligence officers and technology experts that explore, engineer and educate the public about unexplained scientific phenomena. DeLonge currently has a television series (“Strange Times”) in development at TBS and executive produced a 6-part docuseries on The History Channel titled “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation.”
