Angels & Airwaves @ Belly Up Feb. 1, Then World Arena Tour

Now that the somewhat underwhelming Second Coming of blink 182 is apparently backburnered, Tom DeLonge's more adventurous outfit Angels & Airwaves is prepping for a world tour, but first they'll hit hometown tavern the Belly Up on February 1.

"Five years of hard work are finally being realized in 2012," says DeLonge. "While it has been quite a roller coaster ride, we are happy to have succeeded in making this a band of true dreamers & modernists. This month, we launch our much anticipated year with a few intimate shows in Southern California, but we plan to return soon with a full not-so-secret Love experience."

Warming up for their upcoming world tour beginning in Brisbane, Australia on February 25, AVA will be playing House of Blues in Anaheim on Sunday, January 22, Velvet Jones in Santa Barbara on January 25, Los Angeles on Thursday, January 26 (venue TBA), the Belly Up on February 1, and the Glass House in Pomona on February 2 (ticketing links and information at http://modlife.com/AngelsAndAirwaves/tour).

The night before their Belly Up show, they'll appear on TV's Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday, January 31, playing their new single “Surrender,” the same day it hits radio stations nationwide.

Angels & Airwaves (AVA), formed by blink-182 and Box Car Racer guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge, originally included David Kennedy (notably from Over My Dead Body, Hazen Street, and Box Car Racer), and Offspring drummer Atom Willard.

Angels & Airwaves released their first single, “The Adventure,” on May 18, 2006 and their debut album, We Don’t Need to Whisper, on May 23, 2006. Bassist Ryan Sinn, formerly of the Distillers, left the band in early 2007. Former 30 Seconds to Mars bassist Matt Wachter joined the band after Sinn’s departure.

On June 18, 2007, the band released a newly designed website depicting a motorcyclist and a flash application with flashing text advertising their upcoming album, I-Empire. The flash application also played a short music clip from I-Empire, along with a portion of the message from President Eisenhower via the Project SCORE Satellite in 1958: “Through the marvels of scientific advance, my voice is coming to you from a satellite circling in outer space... Through this unique means I can say to you and to all mankind, America’s wish for peace on Earth.”

The flash application ends with the quotation “If I had my own world... I’d build you an empire....”

They performed September 7, 2007, at Copley Symphony Hall for the opening of the surf film Trilogy, which features AVA on its soundtrack. Their second Geffen Records album I-Empire was released in October 2007, debuting at #9 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

Seven weeks later, the disc was at #172. Love Part One, released in 2010, did not fare much better.

On August 10, 2011, more than 460 movie theaters nationwide broadcast a live band performance, video screening and a Q&A session with Angels & Airwaves Presents LOVE Live. At the same time, “Epic Holiday,” the final preview video for their science fiction movie Love, about a stranded astronaut, was streaming on their website. The video is the fourth and final extended story of characters that make brief appearances in the feature film.

Their fourth studio full-length Love Part 2 finally arrived November 11, 2011 (postponed from Valentines Day), available on its own or in a variety of packages, including both part one and part two.

Image A deluxe version includes the 85-minute Love movie on DVD, while another package upgrades the deluxe version with a 128-page comic book based on the movie or adds a limited-edition t-shirt. Another package, limited to 25 sets, contains a signed, customized TD Epiphone guitar similar to the one Tom DeLonge plays.

As of late 2011, their newest member is local drummer is Ilan Rubin (Nine Inch Nails).
