AvA consists of Tom DeLonge on guitar/vocals, guitarist David Kennedy, and bassist Matt Wachter.

Angels & Airwaves was founded in the wake of Tom DeLonge’s 5 year hiatus with massive punk supergroup blink-182. DeLonge gathered a group of friends and like-minded musicians to start a band, with a musical spirit that was quite different from any of their previous efforts. The ...

Editorial Reviews

With their 2006 debut CD We Don't Need To Whisper, Angels And Airwaves (AVA for short) strikes a blow for hope in dark times. The overall message on every AVA song, Tom recently told Kerrang! Magazine, is that tomorrow could be the best day of your life. Teaming up with Tom are his Box Car Racer colleague, guitarist David Kennedy, former Offspring drummer Atom Willard and one-time Distillers bassist Ryan Sinn. Tom emphasizes that AVA is no side project like Box Car Racer, nor a thinly-disguised solo vehicle. AVA is, first and foremost, a band. All of us have massive input, he adds. It's a collaborative effort. The four gathered at Tom's studio, Never Pants Ranch, to record the album with Tom producing. It's taken me 12 years to learn how to write an album like this, Tom told Alternative Press. It's taken 20 million records sold and arenas sold out across the world with blink-182 to learn how music affects people, how it should be presented live and how to keep people interested (while taking) them on a journey. I feel this is some of the best music I've ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing! August 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge Blink-182 fan, I was one of the few it seems that really liked the last Blink album and the direction the band was heading with their more mature sound. So when the band decided to take an indefinite break, I was very disappointed to say the least, as if they faltered just when it seemed that they were hitting their prime. Then came Tom's much anticipated effort with a new lineup. I have to admit going in with some skepticism, being that I felt pretty strongly that Mark and Travis were too intrical and talented members of a great band to replace so easily since Mark's powerful basslines and Travis' crushing drums were such distinguishing hallmarks of Blink's successful sound. But with all due respect to those two individuals, boy I couldn't have been more wrong. Not only did Tom's new direction pick up right where Blink left off, but it reached a level that I'm not sure Blink could ever gotten to as it would've been too much of a departure from their previous sound. This is simply one of the best albums I have ever heard and blows away any previous albums Blink has ever done. Now I know some are saying that AvA's sound is too reminiscent of U2, The Cure, and other '80's bands to stand on it's own. However, in my humble opinion I couldn't disagree more. While there are similarities to albums such as the Joshua Tree in terms of the scale of the songs, no one today is even coming close to touching the commitment to excellence in writing. Tom and his new mates set out to make an alblum not with just a couple of hit singles and a bunch of filler, but instead wrote every song as if it was to go on an eventual greatest hits album. Each song not only stands alone in it's brillance, but together form an entire concept album full of themes of love, war, loss, hope, and space. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid CD May 24, 2006
By Alex
Format:Audio CD
Blink-182 changed continously throughout it's band-life. But not until Enema of the State did they to me make a bigger change. They turned somewhat "poppy" and had real good songs. In Take off your Pants and Jacket, they started to turn more "Rock", and it turned out to be my favorite CD. But in their final album ( Titled Blink-182? ) they turned really "emo", depressing, somewhat gothic.. but I still liked that, too. But when they broke up, or went on an "indefinite hiatius", I was pretty shocked, since Tom and Mark were "best friends".

In Angels and Airwaves (AvA) Tom takes on a more serious and loving side without his former bandmates Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus. Angels and Airwaves consists of Box Car Racer guitarist David Kennedy, former Distillers bassist Ryan Sinn, and the drummer Atom Willard, best known as former drummer for The Offspring. With a great group of guys like this, you'd expect a great cd, and that is exactly what you get. Tom said it would change the world.. it hasn't. I think he was just feeling good that day. :P. Here's my review.

Valkyrie Missle: 10/10. This has got to be my favorite track on the entire album. The intro is a long two minutes and forty seconds, a riff doesn't start until a minute or so into it, and tempo doesn't change until a minute thirty. I loved the lyrics though, and Tom's voice makes it a much better song. I'm hoping this is AvA's next single. This is my favorite on the album I'd say.

Distraction: 9/10. Starts out with a less than lengthy intro than Valkyrie Missle ( This one is a minute and nine seconds ) and the lyrics are pretty repetetive, but I just like this song. And like I will say continously about these songs, Tom's voice makes it better better better.

Do It For Me Now: 8.5/10.

Barely hinted at in the last 182 album, this thing is pure emotional fantasy rock. Powerful and delicate in perfect measures, it harkens back to the new-romantic feel of the 80s, with a nice blink 182 spike... just a spike...

God bless Tom Delonge for not giving up, and giving us something very special to listen to for years to come.

My faves are 'valkyrie missle' and 'do it for me now'.

In my opinion , Angels and Airwawaves is an instant classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angels & Airwaves August 9, 2006
By Jim
Format:Audio CD
Angels and Airwaves' debut album 'We Don't Need To Whisper' is an album that should go down in history as one of the most solid albums to hit shelves today. Contrary to what some may say, this album is the absolute antithesis of failure. Heavy with delay effects, synthesizers, full drawn out choruses, and passion-driven lyrics--it contains everything needed to create an epic and timeless album.

I remember buying it the first day it came out. I drove as fast as I could on my way back home where I could listen to it in my bedroom with the headphones on. Once I got home, I immediately did just that while carefully turning the volume up to ten on my Ipod. The opening to the first song, "Valkyrie Missile", got my heart racing immediately. The strings combined with the organ set up the perfect landscape; almost as if giving me a feeling of flying through space. The intro then builds for about two minutes to reach the climactic verse where Tom sings the first line, "Everyone, everyone will listen even if it hurts sometimes." The verse then instantly transitions to the melodic chorus that'll make you want to raise your arms to the sky and cry because of how beautiful it sounds. My favorite part of the song though has to be the outro. It starts off with a crescendo that leads to an octave riffing that'll hit you right in face emotionally.

The following track, "Distraction", starts off with a long introduction as well, peppered with hand claps and foot stomps that are reminiscent of an army marching towards you. When the marching is at its loudest, it leads to the chorus: "I'll be your distraction." Tom Delonge does a great job in this song painting a picture of a destroyed city. The moral of the song is that no matter how ugly a certain situation is, you'll find beauty within.

Ummm, BoxCar Racer is the most "emo" (I hate that term) album that Tom ever did. Are you kidding me? "I Feel So", "Letters to God", "Sorrow". That album was emo to the core. We Don't Need To Whisper doesn't have one emo song on it (one could argue It... Read More
