Angels & Airwaves Are Back In The Studio

Tom DeLonge has revealed that Angels & Airwaves are back in the studio recording new music.

Angels & Airwaves Are Back In The Studio

It's been almost two months since Angels & Airwaves returned with comeback single Rebel Girl, and it looks like the trio – Tom DeLonge, David Kennedy and Ilan Rubin – are already back in the studio working on more new music.

Frontman Tom posted a selfie on Instagram with the caption "Angels & Airwaves recording session", perhaps alluding to the fact that the band have got some big ideas this year when it comes to releases; if all goes to plan, they'll not only be releasing a brand-new record, but also an accompanying film.

“This album is with a movie, and the movie – which I co-wrote – is going into production in July," Tom told Kerrang! recently. "There will be an album-movie combo, but much more commercial and much bigger in scope. It’ll dig into the fact that the universe is a little bit more tricky and unexplainable than we like to admit.”

Of course, the vocalist/guitarist is also already incredibly busy with his company To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, and he admitted that sometimes it can be overwhelming having so many different projects on.

“A lot of times I question what it means to be happy – I go, ‘Be careful what you wish for – is it really making you happy that you have all these projects?’ I don’t want this much work, and I’m not trying to ask for it, but it’s kind of what’s needed to accomplish some of the things I’m doing," explains Tom. "I mean, where I’m going to end up is doing one major motion picture and album a year, and then I would work the next year – that kind of thing.

“I’m supposed to be writing so many books and so many classified government contracts (laughs). I’m the chairman of the board at my company, so I’m involved in those things, but I’m kind of involved in a really cool way, where I go, ‘What’s going on?’ and I get to have those conversations and meet with our partners in the Department of Defense or wherever they’re at, and we get to deal with these subjects and what I’m passionate about, so I’m in the game – the biggest game on Earth! I get to do that, but I still get to be myself, and the company will be financing its own movies and all that stuff. So I get to spearhead an entire massive art piece, and that’s something no rock’n’roll band on Earth has ever been able to do. I mean, Pink Floyd did The Wall, which is the best thing ever, but it was kind of avant-garde and it was a one-off – they didn’t do it again. I’m trying to go, ‘Well, how do we get teams of artists working together on each one of these projects, and we do it over and over again in different ways?’”
