The Skinny: Angels & Airwaves have just premiered the first song “Paralyzed” off their long-awaited upcoming album The Dream Walker. Scheduled for a December release, The Dream Walker was written, recorded and produced by Angels & Airwaves’ frontman/guitarist Tom DeLonge and multi-instrumentalist Ilan Rubin, known for his work with Nine Inch Nails. This is the first album Angels & Airwaves have made since the death of Jeff Newell.
Initially known for his work with multi-platinum pop-punk band Blink-182, DeLonge formed AVA in 2005. Over the course of the past nine years, AVA has released four studio albums: 2006’s gold-certified We Don’t Need to Whisper; 2007’s I-Empire, which rocketed into the Top 10 of The Billboard 200; 2010’s free downloadable album, Love (the band gave away a million downloads of the album) and 2011’s Love Pt 2.
