When a member of once-successful band parted ways from the group and form another, there's a high chance that the new band will be overshadowed by the old one. This was not the case for Tom DeLonge. Whenever he started a project, there's always enthusiasm from the fans who used to fancy him while in Blink-182. Post declaring an off from both Blink and Box Car Racer (BCR), DeLonge launched a relatively successful band called Angels & Airwaves (AAA or also sometimes credited as AVA) that totally separate him from the notion 'former-Blink-182 vocalist'. Still in its second year, AAA have pocketed two charting albums that won't take positions below top 10 on Billboard Hot 200. The sophomore set 'I-Empire' was released on November 6, 2007, the same week where music greats such as Jay-Z and Chris Brown also released theirs. Already the album fell to #1 on iTunes chart and #9 on Billboard Hot 200 chart after selling 66,000 copies on the first week.
