Angels & Airwaves have announced the arrival of their sixth studio album Lifeforms, set for release September 24. A few days later on September 29, the band will also be setting off on a world tour.

Making these announcements in a far more extravagant way than most, Angels & Airwaves partnered with Sent Into Space to get their message out there. Launching a renewable hydrogen capsule which played out the new record in full into the stratosphere, the space tech also displayed the tour and album information, which you can view in a video below.

The world tour will commence on September 29 in Riverside, CA and will then move across the United States before spending the month of March 2022 in Europe and the UK. Tickets for the EU shows will go on sale on June 18 at 10am local time, and
tickets for the UK dates will go on-sale on June 25 at 9am local time.

In further news, Angels & Airwaves have also shared the first single from the new album, entitled Restless Souls.

Frontman Tom Delonge explains: “Restless Souls in many ways is an honest letter from God to humanity – because life seems to always be looking for ways to inspire, clarify and teach us when things become more difficult. 

"This album for me is a journey through different relationships, different points of view, and how we each have our own life path.”
