Angels & Airwaves thought a little outside of the box when it came time to announce their new album and tour. How far out of the box? Try outer space!

The group just announced their sixth studio album Lifeforms by partnering with Sent Into Space where they launched a renewable hydrogen capsule that played a premiere of the new album while displaying the tour and album info. You can check that out in full below.

Angels & Airwaves Announce New Album + Tour in Space

Lifeforms will officially arrive on this planet on Sept. 24, with Angels & Airwaves hitting the road just five days later on Sept. 29 to kick off their world tour. The run starts stateside in Riverside, California though the group does have a preview performance at Lollapalooza in Chicago on July 31. The group also revealed the first European tour leg taking place in March 2022. See all the stops listed at the bottom of this post and get your tickets here.

Along with the album and tour announcement, Angels & Airwaves issued a new song called "Relentless Souls." The track is written from the perspective of God as a letter to humanity regarding life’s trials and the necessity for humans to demonstrate resiliency.

“'Restless Souls' in many ways is a honest letter from God to humanity - because life seems to always be looking for ways to inspire, clarify and teach us when things become more difficult,” said frontman Tom DeLonge. Check out the lyrics and video for the song below.

Angels & Airwaves, "Restless Souls" Lyrics

Everything and everyone
Every word is falsified
Can not see what you’ve become
A little hard to recognize

Everything’s been overdone
Honesty is crucified
Can’t sleep when shots are fired
Even if they’re justified

If you are the mastermind
Are you mad, with an ax to grind
If you need to testify
Take the reigns or step aside

There’s another kind a treason
Any day that you can lose yourself
Anything that you believe in
Your little prison, and a private hell

Are you feeling kind of angry
You want to fly but your heart’s so closed
You can catch a liar safely
But never sure of anything they know

What’s that little moving light then
Do you believe in ghosts
It’s a little terrifying
To be a part of something so unknown

Don’t you cry
it only hurts when
You look with your eyes
A thousand years have passed
From day to night,
From death to light
When we feel like the world’s caving in

We will never give in

Don’t you cry
We only hurt, when
Love has been denied
A thousand voices proved
our conscience right,
We come from light
When we feel like the world’s caving in
We will never give in

There’s a tiny little razor
Laying on a painted window sill
Like a little generator
It’ll scare like only high school will

If your feeling kind of empty
like being lost in the background would
You can say it me safely
So let it out, cause ya know you should

Hold on, to me, we’re watching
Ice melt, disease, like something’s
Comin’
Hold on, to me, I’m watching over
You, I’ll be, watching you

Angels & Airwaves, "Restless Souls"

DeLonge says of the new Lifeforms album, “This album for me is a journey through different relationships, different points of view, and how we each have our own life path.” As stated, the album arrives Sept. 24. Pre-orders for Lifeforms are available at this location.
