Angels & Airwaves have released their first new song in three years after teasing the internet for days about something in the works.
DeLonge made a statement about his inspiration behind the track, and had a pretty neat idea about where to perform it.
“‘Rebel Girl’ is a space-age love song that combines my enduring obsession for New Wave, pop punk and anthemic rock and roll music,” DeLonge said in a press release. “As some of you might’ve 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 single, the band is also headed on the road for the first time in 7 years. DeLonge shared the news on his Instagram.
