Haha, nah definitely Chasing Shadows. I consider that Of Nightmares EP as unreleased material from the Dream Walker album really. Wasn't a fan of that EP tbh, although View From Below is way better than Kiss With a Spell which has similar vibes.

It was just the electronic comment I reacted on haha. It's okay though, different views is a good thing. View From Below is one of the best songs he's done for years imo! Kiss with a spell is just breath part 2 haha.

Chasing Shadows is easily one of Tom's best releases as he didn't try to do too much but write good songs.

When it came out it was a breath of fresh air for sure as you could hear toms songwriting in it without Ilan's input imho.

We all @twentytwenty is the biggest Tom Bot here. I’d gladly knock that guy out 

Overload from Chasing Shadows is a fucking boppppp

Bring it on teaboy!! 

Also, Voyager is easily my favorite from the EP, it's like the perfect blend of AVA and neighborhoods blink imo

Got my tickets to the starland show in October, felt good to purchase concert tickets again. Didn’t miss the prices of shows tho…

Yeah I get this, I've missed concerts really bad.  So I'm excited for the first tickets I bought for Weezer and Green Day at Summerfest.  Disappointed blink didn't end up doing it this year after being scheduled there for 2020, but this should be a solid replacement all the same. I guess fall out boy is there too, but I truly couldn't care less about that part of the bill.

Oh yeah definitely, Dream Walker & Of Nightmares definitely have more electronic elements. Chasing Shadows literally sounds like a blink-182 EP haha, but it still has it's electronic moments whilst being more guitar driven at the same time. I'm just disappointed there probably isn't gonna be a song like the EP title track on the new album. It's probably my favourite AVA song too.

Agreed on View From Below as well. it's like a more electronic version of the Cure IMO. Dunno how that song never made the album.

Tom DeLonge in 2001- “is it wrong if I think it’s lame to dance?”

Tom DeLonge with AVA- I’m just gonna put the guitar down and dance like a mentally ill fairy now for the rest of my days

if i enjoy at least eight songs on this record, i will consider that a success. if not, i would hope that tom just hangs it up entirely. i'd say the same for any other musician. it's just not realistic to expect an album full of completely fresh and amazing songs from someone who has been releasing music for 30 years, imo. yes, it's possible. but we're talking about tom delonge.

8 good songs on a record seems like a high amount to expect from anyone these days to be honest. And I’m not knocking you for saying that by the way, I’m just saying music in general has gotten so shitty and forced these days that I would say I’d be happy with 50% good songs on an album lol

I mean you should be used to it by now and this joke stopped being funny around 14 years ago.

The guy from the charity shared this in a random Tom fan boy group on FB. 

Nice to see a good guy Tom moment, especially as I don't think he's shared it about himself. The charity seems quite small as well.

He should take his dancing to America’s Got Talent and see what they say 

Haha. It is pretty amazing that he still looks a bit uncomfortable without a guitar. 

I've never had the luxury of seeing him in person with either band so I can't say how it looks irl though. Maybe it's less awkward when you're there?
