"It was an easy choice in terms of its approachability for an audience to hear it in passing," DeLonge tells Spinner. "It's not that far off what we do, but the record definitely has a lot of different pieces and multiple musical movements because it was made for a film. It's one of those things you can hear with this song too. It has a whole big introduction before the song begins. It's what the record does a lot of the time. There's these long intros and outros. The sequencing of the record was important because we needed the music to score a motion picture so we had to think outside of the box in terms of arrangements."
The movie was produced via an independent film studio with director and writer Will Eubank at the helm. "We set out on a macro level with partners who understood what we were doing," DeLonge says, "so that the tonality, imaging and the overall philosophical message was what Angels and Airwaves is all about."
As for the film's plot, DeLonge says the science fiction epic starts in the Civil War and ends in the International Space Station. "It takes you through an odyssey, one man's journey," he reveals. "It's meant to be a high-impact visual and sonic experience. We don't have any big cast members, though. It's funny -- when we started this we thought it was going to be a lot smaller. It's become something very different."
