Directed by Mark Eaton, "The Wolfpack" video is the latest in a series of brand-new Angels & Airwaves releases, following the album’s preview track, “Paralyzed,” (which immediately rocketed into the Top 10 on the iTunes Alternative Chart), the trailer premiere for the animated short film "Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker", and Spinmedia's launch of "The Wolfpack" single.
Together with the album, the short film will be released on December 9th and is an official selection of the 2014 Toronto International Short Film Festival, taking place November 12-14th, 2014.
The Dream Walker was written, recorded and produced by Angels & Airwaves’ frontman/guitarist Tom DeLonge and multi-instrumentalist Ilan Rubin, known for his work with Nine Inch Nails. The album was recorded at Jupiter Sound in San Diego, CA, and mixed by Aaron Rubin, Tom Lord Alge (Rolling Stones, Liz Phair, Peter Gabriel) and Alan Moulder (Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, Arctic Monkeys). “Paralyzed” was mixed by Aaron Rubin, who worked with AVA on 2013’s Stomping The Phantom Brake Pedal.
"Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker" follows Poet, a Lucid Dreamer with the rare ability to be aware of his dreams while they’re happening. As Poet journeys deeper into his vivid dream life, he meets his Dream Walker, a guardian angel of dreams who protects him from the torment of a vicious Night Terror monster. But when his nightmares break through into his waking life, Poet must face his demons to fulfill his destiny. "Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker" is a story by Tom DeLonge and features music from "The Dream Walker".
"The Dream Walker" follows the band's last two albums, Love (2010) and "Love: Part Two" (2011) and its companion film, "Love", which investigated the psychological effects of isolation when an astronaut stranded in space learns the importance of human connection and love. The critically acclaimed movie was screened at festivals around the world.
"Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker" will also feature a comic book series, novels and a live-action feature film launching in 2015.
