To celebrate the launch of their first tour in 7 years, Angels & Airwaves released new song ‘Kiss & Tell’, a few months back.

The band have now unveiled the official music video for the track, with brilliant acting from band leader Tom DeLonge.

“The beginning of the song is really an ode to The Beach Boys,” says vocalist/guitarist Tom 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.”

‘Kiss & Tell’ follows lead track ‘Rebel Girl’ and its companion video.

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 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.

The band has also been working on a new album, which would be AVA’s first collection of new tracks since 2016’s ‘Chasing Shadows’ EP.
