SANTA MONICA, CA (Geffen Records) - The debut album from Angels and Airwaves (Suretone/Geffen Records) is kicking off the summer music scene with a bang. The NY Times says, "It's an impressive CD, full of widescreen love songs" and the NY Post asserts, "There's always a band at the start of the summer that's touted as rock's next big big thing... and this year, a San Diego
outfit called Angels & Airwaves
has laid claim to the crown."
The band is an energetic mix of talent, which includes lead singer Tom Delonge (blink 182), guitarist David Kennedy (Box Car Racer), bassist Ryan Sinn (Distillers) and on drums Atom Willard (Offspring).
The first single, "The Adventure" is currently top 5 on the Modern Rock Chart, with the video playing on MTV and in heavy rotation on MTV2 and FUSE.
The band's summer tour with Taking Back Sunday kicks off on June 22nd in Jackson, NJ and concludes in the band's home town of San Diego CA on July 23rd (complete list below).
