Angels & Airwaves have released a new single – their first material since 2016 EP Chasing Shadows.

The band featuring former Blink-182 (opens in new tab) vocalist and guitarist Tom DeLonge (opens in new tab), guitarist David Kennedy and drummer Ilan Rubin have shared the track Rebel Girl, which will feature on an upcoming album and film project.

DeLonge says: “Rebel Girl is a space-age love song that combines my enduring obsession for New Wave, pop punk and anthemic rock and roll music.

“As some of you might have heard, I recently took a brief minute to start up an aerospace company, so you never know – I may play this song from a satellite deep in space, beamed toward everyone’s house viciously on repeat.”

Along with the new single, Angels & Airwaves have also announced a 23-date US tour which will kick off in Phoenix on September 4 and wrap up in San Diego on October 5. It’ll be the band’s first live shows since 2012.

A full list of dates can be found below, with tickets going on sale this coming Friday (May 3) from 12noon local time.
