Angels and Airwaves Biography

With the hiatus of pop-punk superstars blink-182 in full effect by the fall of 2005, singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge revealed the formation of his new band -- one he'd already been working with for six months -- Angels and Airwaves. With the notoriety of his previous group, much hype ensued after the announcement: In interviews with outlets like mtv.com, DeLonge proclaimed (among other things) that the new music would take elements of bands like U2 and Pink Floyd and ultimately be something of a revolution to change the face of rock & roll forever. Rounding out brainchild and songwriter DeLonge were guitarist David Kennedy (Boxcar Racer, Hazen Street), drummer Atom Willard (Rocket from the Crypt, the Offspring), and ba**ist Ryan Sinn (the Distillers). Angels and Airwaves unveiled themselves live on April 12, 2006, to a sold-out crowd at Pomona, CA's Gla** House; their shimmering, arena-ready debut, We Don't Need to Whisper, appeared that May on Geffen. A few U.K. festivals and a monthlong North American headlining tour followed before the band served as openers with Head Automatica for Taking Back Sunday on nationwide arena dates. ~ Corey Apar, All Music Guide
