It will be all "Love," all the time for Tom DeLonge's Angels & Airwaves this year. With the new "Love" album just out -- and being distributed for free online -- a feature film of the same name and plenty of touring, DeLonge tells Billboard.com that "we'll keep working this record forever. There's no stop as to what we can do and what kind of deals we can make."
That begins with the tours, the first of which commences March 27 at the Bamboozle festival in Anaheim, Calif., and wraps May 28 in Las Vegas. "There'll be a couple different tours on this record," DeLonge reports. "This first one is promotion for the launch of the album. The second tour will come out after the movie goes theatrical, and that will be the big tour where we basically couple everything together. But this first tour is going to be exciting and will hearken back to our old catalog. I think this'll be a great experience, and it might be some of the last to have with this band in these [theater]-size venues, so I'm excited to go and do this."
DeLonge says director Will Eubank is currently finishing work on the "Love" film, a science fiction epic whose span reaches from the Civil War to the International Space Station and the end of Earth as we know it. May is "the absolute finish date" according to DeLonge, who says he's negotiating with four movie studios about distributing "Love" and also has interest from the Sundance and Tribeca film festivals.
