Performing live or the first time in seven years, Tom Delonge's alt-rock project Angels and Airwaves is making their way across North America on a month long tour. On 9/17 they visited New York City to perform a sold out show at Time Square's Playstation Theater. The band consists of Blink 182 founder Tom Delonge, long time guitarist David Kennedy, drummer Ilan Rubin of Nine Inch Nails, and touring bassist Matt Rubano, who also performs with Glassjaw. Playing a mix of new and old AVA tunes, with a quick acoustic medley of Blink 182 and Box Car Racer jams, they electrified the stage for a roughly two hour set. Opening on this tour is Ilan Rubin's solo project 'The New Regime', as well as "Charming Liars".
Having released two new singles this year, "Kiss & Tell" and Rebel Girl, it is safe to assume that we will see a new album from AVA very soon. Keep your eyes peeled for their 2019 Winter Tour as they announce dates, and hopefully we can expect more tours coming next year. If you hope to visit NYC's iconic Playstation Theater (formerly Best Buy and Nokia Theater) now is the time to do so, the venue will close it's doors at the end of this year.

Noise Rock/Mathcore legends 'Daughters' could easily be considered one of the best live performances in heavy music. With unparalleled chaos and energy they led a packed crowd at House of Independents in Asbury Park, NJ. The band was formed in 2002 in Providence, RI and have released four studio albums including the mathcore masterpiece Hell Songs in 2005. Their latest release, You Won't Get What You Want, brings a notably more atmospheric tone while maintaining the brute power and unpredictable nature that have become their trademark while cranking the wall of noise up to 11. Awe inspiring to say the least, their unique blend of technical shredding and brutal, droning noise is a captivating spectacle that is not to be missed. Catch them on tour this fall at the dates below.
