It looks like we are a little bit closer to finally hearing Angels & Airwaves‘ next album.
On Monday, Tom Delonge further teased the upcoming release with some exclusive footage from the studio that includes a snippet of an unreleased song.
It’s been quite a while since we last heard a new full-length album from Angels & Airwaves. Back in 2014, the band dropped The Night Walker which includes the hits “Tunnels,” “Kiss With A Spell” and “Tremors” among others.
Since then, they’ve gone on to release a few EPs – 2015’s …Of Nightmares, 2016’s Chasing Shadows and 2017’s We Don’t Need to Whisper Acoustic. In 2019, they returned with two singles “Rebel Girl” and “Kiss & Tell” which were soon followed up by 2020’s “All That’s Left Is Love.”
Now, it looks like Angels & Airwaves’ next full-length album is officially on the way. Over the past month, Tom DeLonge has been sharing some behind-the-scenes content while working in the studio.
At the start of 2021, Tom DeLonge confirmed that Angels & Airwaves were getting back to recording their new music.
“Back at it today.”
Last week, he also revealed that he used an old Box Car Racer guitar to track some of the new music.
Back in December, fans were convinced that DeLonge and Travis Barker may have something exciting planned for the band’s 20th anniversary. Some even theorize that they may finally drop that unreleased Box Car Racer song. So far, both DeLonge and Barker are keeping tight-lipped on if anything is planned.
“In the studio today, we used my BCR guitar a little bit on the new @angelsandairwaves”
“Singing stuff for @angelsandairwaves”
Now, DeLonge is further teasing the next Angels & Airwaves album by giving fans an exclusive preview of a new song. Earlier this week, he posted a video in the studio that features a snippet of an unreleased song. By the looks of the caption, fans can expect an “epic” new album from the band.
“This new @angelsandairwaves album is epic”
At the end of last month, DeLonge teased that this new Angels & Airwaves album has influences from all of his past projects on it.
“New @AVABandOfficial has some of the best work I’ve done in many years. I’d be honored if when it launches here soon that you give it a try… it’s got a little bit of all three bands I’ve been in. :)”

So far, Angels & Airwaves’ next album does not have a release date. However, Tom DeLonge has managed to stay busy with another project. Late last year, we learned that DeLonge is making his directorial debut in the new sci-fi film Monsters Of California. The coming of age adventure with a sci-fi twist is based on a script written by DeLonge and Ian Miller.
The film follows teenager Dallas Edwards (Jack Samson) and his friends who are on a quest to find the meaning behind a series of paranormal events in Southern California. During their journey, they begin to uncover secrets and truths about paranormal activity that lead back to the deepest levels of the American Government.
Along with his research with To The Stars Academy and fascination with UFOs, DeLonge also took inspiration from his early days in blink-182 for the film’s script. According to IMDb, Monsters Of California has wrapped filming and is now in post-production.
While we wait for Angels & Airwaves’ new album to arrive, “All That’s Left Is Love” is available to stream below.
