"If you're looking for a well-made rock album with all the pop and punk trimmings, look no further than Lifeforms." — Sputnikmusic
The sixth album from Angels And Airwaves, the Tom DeLonge-fronted band, is called Lifeforms, and aside from the odd reference to aliens, reports NME, the disc finds them down-to-earth and putting this world to rights.
Well, not so odd, maybe, it turns out.
DeLonge had a prevalent role in the Pentagon’s declassification of a series of videos revealing the existence of “unexplained aerial phenomena” (aka UFOs). DeLonge achieved exactly what he set out to do, proving everyone wrong in the process.
Amid the effort to, you know, shift the very concept of life on earth as we know it (which he refers to simply as “the government stuff”), DeLonge was piecing together a new album with his band Angels And Airwaves.
DeLonge was still a member of Blink 182 the last time that Angels And Airwaves released a record. A year after the release of Angels' fifth album, 2014's The Dream Walker, though, he quit the iconic pop-punk group once more to focus on other projects.
"I can't seem to quit music," DeLonge told Uproxx over Zoom in between hectic tour rehearsals. "I don't know what it is. I just... I'm a musician and you don't stop. It's like who I am, it's what I do. And regardless of the circumstance, I'm always going to go back to the guitar."
Lifeforms will silence anyone still questioning DeLonge's musical decisions. An urgent punk record with all the ambition of a band out to change the world, their sixth album depicts a band with a purpose.
