|Angels & Airwaves Week: Everything's Magic|
This is the first song we wrote for I-EMPIRE specifically, in January of 2007. And it all started with Tom saying he wanted to do a song with a "lust for life" kind of feel. We figured out a tempo and I put down the beat you hear in the verse. The whole thing came together easy and pretty quick, Tom wrote the lyrics in about a day and the hand claps everyone talks about came right at the end. Fun song to play live since everyone starts dancing.
Just in case you didn't know Angels & Airwaves is former blink-182 & Box Car Racer guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge, Offspring drummer Atom Willard, David Kennedy from Box Car Racer and former 30 Seconds to Mars bassist Matt Wachter. Tom produced the new album. Preview some tracks from the CD, learn more about the band and CD and more- right here
