Having spent the last decade singing about boobies, your mom and making out with your best friend’s sister, Tom DeLonge’s new creation, ‘Angels & Airwaves’ couldn’t be more different. Bringing together the unfathomable talents of Ryan Siller (ex bassist of The Distillers), David Kennedy (Boxcar Racer) and Atom Willard (ex Offspring) on drums , DeLonge has created a superband.
If you’re expecting the same tongue in cheek saccharine sweet pop punk – then you’re in for a pleasant surprise. Debut single ‘The Adventure’ is just that – an adventure into a new sound. Tinkering percussion and an extended introduction gives way to swirling guitars, a bright classical sound intertwined with magical synths and electronics. Levels shift with new intensity and Delonge’s wonderfully familiar vocals are stronger and more commanding than his Blink 182 days. With Angels and Airwaves he has become a frontman in his own right, and as he puts it so aptly ‘ it’s no holds barred now’.
Taken from Crossfire. Because I couldn't do my own review of them. Simply typing 'shithot' won't make you listen to them.
