''Angels and Airwaves'' (a.k.a. "AVA") is an American alternative / ProgressiveRock {{Supergroup}} formed by Music/{{Blink 182}} singer/guitarist Tom [=De=]Longe in 2005. The band has also been described as an "art project," with a multimedia initiative that includes movies, books, art, and other media. For example, the two ''Love'' albums are part of what Tom considered a more far-reaching project which also includes the feature length ''Film/{{Love}}'' movie directed by William Eubank. The film, after [[ScheduleSlip several years of delays]] premiered at the Santa Barbara Film Festival in February 2011, received a limited one night only release on August 10th, and eventually was released on DVD in November alongside ''Love Part 2.'' The film also received a graphic novel adaptation. Capping off the ''Love'' cycle is a double EP of remixes from both Love albums and the Love film score supervised by new drummer Ilan Rubin called ''Stomping the Phantom Break Pedal.'' The first ''Love'' album was released for free by the band, similar to what Music/{{Radiohead}} did with ''In Rainbows'' or what Music/NineInchNails did with ''The Slip.''

* TrailersAlwaysLie: They released a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVsvdDeOQro trailer]] for a movie based on their music shortly before ''We Don't Need To Whisper'' first came out. The trailer gave the impression that it would be a feature film like ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' or ''TheWall'', but it eventually turned out to be a documentary about the band's formation. Granted, they ''did'' eventually come out with a feature film called ''Love'' in 2011.

The release of their album ''The Dream Walker'' coinceded with the release of the animated sci-fi short film/bigger multimedia brand Poet Anderson, featuring a dreamwalking vigilante who fights off nightmares in a very nice suit. Said multimedia brand features said short film, an upcoming live action film, comics, clothing, and a novel from Suzanne Young of ''The Program'' series. The relaunch of the band-run strange news/ufology/conspiracy theory news site Strange Times has taken a backseat to the development of a full-fledged...something. A TV show? A movie? The only thing that's for certain at this point is the novel tie-in from Geoff Herbach, writer of ''Stupid Fast''. [[RealSoonNow Brace for the wait]].

Part II ties directly into the ''Love'' film, with dialogue from the movie showing up on the album and songs from the album showing up in the film's score in epic instrumental film score format.
