After spending the last several years chasing UFOs, Tom DeLonge is turning his attention back to music. He’s not reuniting with Blink-182, however. Rather, he’s resurrecting his other band, Angels & Airwaves.
Today, DeLonge has unveiled the first new song from Angels & Airwaves in three years, “Rebel Girl”, which serves as the lead track to an upcoming album and feature film project. What’s more, he’s mapped out a 23-date US tour, his first such outing with the band in seven years. Get your tickets here.
Not surprisingly, “Rebel Girl” draws inspiration from DeLonge’s recent endeavors as co-founder of the UFO research group, To the Stars. “’Rebel Girl’ is a space-age love song that combines my enduring obsession for New Wave, pop punk and anthemic rock and roll music,” says DeLonge in a statement. “As some of you might’ve heard, I recently took a brief minute to start up an aerospace company, so you never know – I may play this song from a satellite deep in space, beamed toward everyone’s house viciously on repeat.” Take a listen below.
The tour kicks off September 4th in Phoenix and runs through early October. DeLonge will be joined on the road by guitarist David Kennedy and drummer Iian Rubin. See the full schedule below, and grab tickets here.
