Angel & Airwaves have released a new video for hit song Kiss & Tell released via Rise/BMG. Tom DeLonge, a founding member of seminal pop-punk band Blink-182, formed Angels & Airwaves in 2005. The band has also been working on a new album, which would be Angel & Airwave’s first collection of new tracks since 2016’s Chasing Shadows EP.
Angels and Airwaves, who along with vocalist and guitarist DeLonge includes guitarist David Kennedy and drummer Ilan Rubin. Together, the band recently finished completed a sold-out US tour; their first tour in seven years.
“The beginning of the song is really an ode to The Beach Boys,” explains DeLonge. “It opens with three-part harmonies to create an introduction with multi-dimensionality. We wanted to create a sound that had electronic elements right alongside classic rock and pop-punk melodic structures. Lyrically, this song is specifically about balancing on the edge of a razor blade. Doing something you’re not supposed to be doing, and although you might die while doing it, it’s still very much keeping you feeling alive.”
The band released their debut album We Don’t Need To Whisper in 2006, which featured Top 5 hit The Adventure. 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. As 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.
