“Rebel Girl” – alt rockers ANGELS & AIRWAVES return with first new track in 3 years

Oh I have a soft spot for Tom DeLonge’s ANGELS & AIRWAVES. Ever since they released their amazing debut “We Don’t Need To Whisper” 13 years ago, I’ve been a huge fan, and even though they gravitated towards more electronic filled and softer rock and you’ll probably think this band does not fit IDIOTEQ, I don’t care. I’m still stoked haha. Today, ANGELS & AIRWAVES have released a video for Rebel Girl, their first new track in over three years and you can watch the Matt Thompson-directed clip above!

ANGELS & AIRWAVES (vocalist/guitarist Tom DeLonge, guitarist David Kennedy and drummer Ilan Rubin, joined by touring bassist Matt Rubano) will perform Rebel Girl and a setlist of fan favorites on their sold-out North American headlining tour, which kicks off August 28th in San Diego, CA. The show will take place almost seven years to the day of their last performance, which was September 2, 2012 in Bologna, Italy. GO HERE to see the full itinerary and get your tickets if you’re near.

DeLonge, a founding member of seminal pop punk band Blink-182, formed Angels & Airwaves in 2005. A year later came debut album We Don’t Need To Whisper, which hit No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and featured Top 5 modern rock hit The Adventure. 2007’s I-Empire followed, hitting No. 9 on The Billboard 200 and featured rock radio hit Everything’s Magic. In 2010, AVA released Love and a year later, Love: Part Two accompanied by a critically acclaimed film, Love, which was shown in 460 theaters nationwide during a one-night film screening and live-streamed concert event titled Love Live. The band’s last full-length album was 2014’s The Dream Walker, which hit No. 1 on iTunes and No. 5 on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums chart. A multimedia project, the album was accompanied by a graphic novel, comic books and a Blade Runner-meets Harry Potter short film, which won Best Animation at the Toronto International Short Film Festival.

The band has also been working on a new album, which would be AVA’s first collection of new tracks since 2016’s Chasing Shadows EP.

Lyrics:

If you want to dance my love
my little rebel girl
Come a little closer now
and let me in your world
Sometimes it’s a lonely cause
So I just make believe
If you’re gonna take a chance
then take a chance on me

Do you want to go back to where we started
Back before we were broken hearted
Come my way, come-come
I gotta tell ya-
The shoe fits
my little Cinderella

Every little thing you do is like a tidal wave
A fire deep within those eyes
The kill is so cliche
Dance my little Rebel Girl
And show me how you move
Let me take you in my arms
And into the back room

Do you want to go back to where we started
Back before we were broken hearted
Come my way, come-come
I gotta tell ya
The shoe fits
my little Cinderella

Do you want to go back to where we started
Back before we were broken hearted
Come my way, come-come
I gotta tell ya
The shoe fits
my little Cinderella

I’m lost in nerves, I can’t recover
I die inside, unlike any other
Come my way, come my little girl
Come back….

Do you want to go back to where we started
Back before we were broken hearted
Come my way, come-come
I gotta tell ya
The shoe fits
my little Cinderella

Do you want to go back to where we started
Back before we were broken hearted
Come my way, come-come
I gotta tell ya
The shoe fits
my little Cinderella
