I'm actually kinda excited now that it is confirmed that all AvA songs are co-written by both Tom and Ilan. AvA was really losing its grip with the last album because the songs sounded the same and uninspired. Ilan could actually save this band because he's talented as fuck.
Also, I like how the way Tom writes songs for both blink-182 and AvA changed for the better. Blink songs are now written by Tom, Mark and Travis in the same room, AvA songs are written by Tom and Ilan in the same room. Two years ago both blink and AvA songs were written by Tom only, that's why a lot of blink songs sounded more like ideas for AvA. I like how there will be a clear difference in the writing style of the songs, resulting in a better and more focused sound for both bands.
