A little over two weeks ahead of the release of their sixth album, LIFEFORMS, Angels & Airwaves release a new song and video titled “Spellbound.” The video, directed by frontman Tom DeLonge, uses a laser programming technique called laser banding to create a first-of-its-kind laser-walled cube that the band performs inside of. The song is their fourth new track this year and joins the six album songs, which to date have amassed over 48.6 million streams.
LIFEFORMS will arrive on 24th September via Rise Records as the band’s first full length album in seven years, and will be quickly followed by a US tour, beginning on 29th September 29 in Riverside, CA and touring the UK in March 2022. All dates below.

In 2021 the band has released the soaring “Euphoria” on 19th May, and then most recently “Restless Souls” on June 15. Including 2019’s “Rebel Girl” and “Kiss & Tell,” the singles on the album collectively total over 43.5 million streams. NME called Euphoria “explosive,” while Rolling Stone said “the song shows the seductive nature of an intense love.” “Restless Souls” was dubbed “quintessential Tom DeLonge” by Rolling Stone and was paired with the announcement of the band’s forthcoming full-length release LIFEFORMS and a world tour in fall 2021/winter 2022. Tickets are available HERE.
DeLonge, a founding member of Blink-182, formed Angels & Airwaves in 2005. The band has released five full-length albums and charted numerous hits, including “The Adventure,” “The War,” “Everything’s Magic” and “Rebel Girl.” The Dream Walker, released in 2014, hit No. 1 on iTunes and No. 5 on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums chart. A multimedia project, the album was accompanied by a graphic novel, comic books and the short film Poet Anderson, co-directed by DeLonge, which won Best Animated Short Film at the Toronto International Short Film Festival.
Angels & Airwaves are Tom DeLonge (lead vocals, guitar/synths), Ilan Rubin (drums/guitar/backing vocals/synths), David Kennedy (guitar) and Matt Rubano (bass).
In addition to his work with AVA, DeLonge created To The Stars, a multimedia entertainment company that creates original content across music, film, television and publishing. DeLonge served as executive producer of The History Channel series “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation” and will make his feature film directorial debut with the forthcoming Monsters of California.
