Love is the third studio album by Angels & Airwaves, which will be officially released worldwide on February 14, 2010 after being delayed fromChristmas 2009. It will be released free of charge due to “corporate underwriting”. They began producing it in January 2009 but progress was slow due to Tom Delonge’s original band Blink-182 reuniting and going on tour. On February 10, Tom DeLonge posted a blog on Modlife stating that, “Angels and Airwaves is never going to go away”. This brought an end to any lingering rumors of a possible break-up of the band due to the reunion of Blink-182. In April 2009, Atom Willard joined Social Distortion.

On July 31, Angels & Airwaves uploaded a new video to their website, giving people the first official glimpse of their new album Love. Seen in the video was a piece of artwork that contained a new Angels and Airwaves logo, which has similarities to the Masonic Square and Compasses. This new logo also contains the Latin words “Et ducit mundum per luce.” Which translates to “Lead the world by light”.

The first official trailer for the band’s feature film Love was released on October 29 on the band’s website. The film is directed by William Eubank. The trailer appeared on Apple Trailers on October 30, 2009.

On December 14th, Tom posted a blog where he previewed a new song entitled “Sole Survivor” and stated that half of the songs on the album are finished mixing.

The first single from the album, “Hallucinations,” was made available for free through the band’s website, Modlife, on December 23, 2009. The band is currently shooting the music video for “Hallucinations”.

LOVE

Love is the third upcoming studio album by alternative rock band Angels & Airwaves. It is set to be released on iTunes on February 14, 2010. The album will be released free of charge due to “corporate underwriting“.

Production

The album began production in January 2009, after touring with Weezer in the fall of 2008. Production went very slowly as DeLonge was away on tour with Blink-182. DeLonge has compared the album’s space rock influenced sound to that of U2 and Pink Floyd.

Tom DeLonge has said that there is a video in the works for the newest single “Hallucinations”

On their Facebook page, the band stated that on the 4th of January they returned to the studio to put the finishing touches to the LOVE album in time for the February 14th release.

On January 12th, 2010, the band released a promotional video entitled “C:\Transmission_Love”, which contained a short preview of an upcoming song.

Release date

In May 2009, it was announced that the album would be released on Christmas Day. However, on July 19, 2009, DeLonge announced viaModlife that the album will not be released on Christmas day as previously planned, and instead will be released on Valentine’s Day. The album will be released free of charge on iTunes on Valentine’s Day 2010. The free download of the album will be eleven tracks, but a physical copy of the album is also going to be released which will contain the same eleven tracks along with 30 minutes of extra music from the Love movie. The extra music will all flow together. Tom Delonge has also indicated that there will be a deluxe edition of the album with even more bonus material, it has not been given a release date as of yet.

Sound and preview

The music of Love, DeLonge says, will have a progressive rock kind of flavor. “It’s like blending Radiohead and U2 together with these kind ofPink Floyd movements”, he explains. “Things happen unpredictably and take you to these epic soundscapes. It’s very much in the spirit of Angels & Airwaves, but it sounds way, way more thought-out and way more ambitious.” In 2008, Tom DeLonge had fun with a new acoustic song, along with various other demos from I-Empire, he later suggested that he would make this into a song. David Kennedy previewed two new songs from the Love album via Modlife in July 2009 with the working titles “Triumphant” and “Epic Holiday”. David Kennedy also played a clip of another song in August, The song’s title was confirmed to be ‘Sole Survivor’ by Tom DeLonge in a blog on the band’s own Modlife site. In September 2009, a new video was posted on Modlife showing a man in a suit drawing the new Angels & Airwaves logo, this featured a new song clip. Recently Angels & Airwaves have released yet another short video entitled “Elektrogeräte” (German for “electrical devices”) on theirFacebook page and on YouTube, featuring bizarre electronic sounds combined with various vintage sci-fi iconography from brain washing imagery to rockets in flight. It is unknown whether “Elektrogeräte” is a song title or just the title of the short film. “The Architect” is the latest promotional video by the band, it depicts a character (referred to by both the band and fans as “The Architect”) opening a briefcase and taking out a ruler, pencil and compass and begins to draw the new AVA logo on a blank canvas. This video and also the Love feature film trailer feature parts of a new song which DeLonge recently revealed in a chat is tentatively called “Dear God”.

On December 14th, Tom posted a blog where he previewed a new song entitled “Sole Survivor” and stated that half of the songs on the album are finished mixing.

The new single “Hallucinations” can now be heard on their Myspace page and downloaded for free on Modlife.

Tom Delonge recently previewed another [then tentatively titled] song, “She Said” in a Modlife Premium blog. Given the official track listing, it is uncertain what the song has been renamed. This is also the case for the previously titled song, “Triumphant.”

Film

A movie with the same title Love will also be released. It, “tells a story of human life and destiny but at the same time really makes usual moments of life extraordinary. It’s a circular narrative in many ways, where it kind of sums up the human race in a time capsule”. A 3-minute trailer was released on Friday July 31 2009 their website featuring explosions, heavy artillery and civil-war soldiers. Part of the song “Dear God” was featured during the video. The movie also appears to involve scenes aboard the International Space Station, keeping true to Tom’s apparent interest in space as seen in many Angels & Airwaves music videos. The official movie trailer was released on Apple Trailers on Friday, October 30 2009, and is available on Modlife. The film has no relation to the 2008 film, Start the Machine, which was a documentary that followed the making of the first album.

On January 7, Tom shared a bit of the plot of the movie on ModCam, saying that the astronaut goes through a wormhole and meets God.

More was released on the plot of the movie when Tom Delonge was interviewed by ABC. He said, on January 22, that the movie “centers on an astronaut who is stranded in a space station as the Earth collapses.”
