Last year, Angels & Airwaves (AVA) gave away nearly one million downloads of their album LOVE Part One. This summer, more than 460 US movie theaters broadcast the one-night-only Angels & Airwaves Presents LOVE Live event. Now, AVA is poised to release LOVE Part Two, just as the band welcomes new member Ilan Rubin into the fold. Welcome, Ilan!
On Monday, October 31, LOVE Part Two's second single, "Surrender," will be world premiered on KROQ/LA's "Kevin & Bean" show and will also be made available as iTunes' free "Single of the Week." Additionally, iTunes will exclusively offer the full LOVE Part Two album for one week beginning Nov. 1. Concurrently on iTunes, fans will also be able to purchase last year's LOVE Part One album.
LOVE Part One, Part Two and LOVE (the movie) will be available at retail outlets on Nov. 8 through Rocket Science/RED, while AVA Shop will unveil three special packages. That's a lot of love and parts!
On Nov. 8, AVA will make LOVE Part Two available in a variety of packages: a standard version that contains both LOVE Part One and LOVE Part Two albums; and a deluxe version with both LOVE albums plus the 85-minute LOVE movie on DVD. Also, AVA Shop will offer a "black edition" that upgrades the deluxe version with a 128-page comic book based on the movie; a "gold edition" which also adds a limited-edition t-shirt; and a "platinum edition" (limited to 25) that contains a signed, customized Epiphone guitar similar to the one frontman and blink-182 co-founder Tom DeLonge uses.
