Biography

San Diego, United States (2005 – present)

Angels & Airwaves (also known as AvA) are an band from San Diego, California, created by blink-182 and former Box Car Racer guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge. The current line-up consists of former Box Car Racer guitarist David Kennedy, former 30 Seconds to Mars Bassist Matt Wachter, who replaced Ryan Sinn in early 2007, and former Nine Inch Nails and Lostprophets drummer Ilan Rubin, who replaced Atom Willard in fall 2011.

Tom DeLonge began working new material during the blink-182’s final tour in 2004 and shortly after they began their hiatus in February 2005. For half a year he worked alone in his home studio before gathering musicians to form the band. Upon fiddling randomly for several weeks with the band’s logo, Tom suddenly realized that if he were to invert the middle “A” of the band ‘s acronym into what appeared to be a “V”, he would have the name of his daughter, Ava. As rumors were floating around about the band’s “break-up”, DeLonge chose to abstain for half a year from any interviews surrounding the issue and his future plans; instead he concentrated on writing and recording in his home-based studio. In September 2005, he finally spoke publicly in Kerrang! magazine, where he unveiled the name of his new band, “Angels & Airwaves”. The band included former Hazen Street guitarist and high-school friend David Kennedy, former Rocket from the Crypt drummer Adam Willard and former The Distillers bassist Ryan Sinn.
