Tom DeLonge (former Blink 182) to release non-fiction book on UFOs

Ever since the Enema of the State days, it was clear that Blink 182‘s Tom DeLonge loved the idea of aliens. Since leaving his former band in 2015, he’s clearly had a lot more time to concentrate on his passion. His UFO research has been compiled into a book called Sekret Machines: Gods. Authored by DeLonge himself, the release is due for March, 7th, 2017 and contains interviews with scientists, intelligence officials and military personnel.

 

 



Tom DeLonge announces release date for new book ‘Sekret Machines: Chasing Shadows’, launches pre-order bundles

Tom DeLonge sure has bounced back from the blink-182 fallout. A few months ago he revealed that he would be co-authoring a series of books with AJ Hartley called Sekret Machines and now he’s announced that the first novel in the planned trilogy, Chasing Shadows will be released on April 5, 2016. The novel, which is allegedly based on actual events, will be released in both physical and digital formats, and be accompanied by a new Angels & Airwaves EP, also titled Chasing Shadows.

There are several pre-order bundles available at DeLonge’s website, To the Stars. You can check them out here.

DeLonge released a solo album, To the Stars… Demos, Odds, and Ends on April 20, 2015. As a member of Angels & Airwaves, he also released the …Of Nightmares EP on October 6, 2015, which is a part of a larger multi-media project that also includes (but is not limited to) Angels & Airwaves’ 2014 album, The Dream Walker, the 2014 short film, Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker, and DeLonge’s Young Adult novel, Poet Anderson: Of Nightmares.



Tom Delonge co-authors new book series “Sekret Machines”

Well, looks like Tom Delonge of Blink 182 fame is keeping himself busy as usual. In addition to his ongoing work with solo work and Angels & Airwaves it looks like the ex Blink 182 singer is now co-authoring an entire series of books called “Sekret Machines” about, you guessed it, Tom’s favorite subject – UFOs.

Here’s the excerpt:

For those who know… that something is going on… The witnesses are legion, scattered across the world and dotted through history, people who looked up and saw something impossible lighting up the night sky. What those objects were, where they came from and who—or what—might be inside them is the subject of fierce debate and equally fierce mockery so that most who glimpsed them came to wish they hadn’t.

Most, but not everyone.

Among those who, like the toll of a bell that can’t be un-rung, know what they’ve seen, and are forever changed by it, are a soldier, a socialite, a pilot, and a prisoner. From the waning days of the 20th century’s final great war to the fraught fields of Afghanistan to the otherworldly secrets hidden amid Nevada’s dusty neverlands—the truth that is out there will propel each of them into a labyrinth of otherworldly technology and the competing aims of those who might seek to prevent—or harness—these beings of unfathomable power. Because, as it turns out, we are not the only ones who can invent and build…and destroy.

Featuring actual events and other truths drawn from sources within the military and intelligence community, Tom DeLonge and A.J. Hartley offer a tale at once terrifying, fantastical and perhaps all too real. Though it is, of course, a work of… fiction?

Interview: Tom DeLonge on Area 51, having his phone tapped and so much more X-Filesy weirdness

Photo by Albert Sanchez

Okay, so we all know Tom DeLonge has been labelled a bit of an odd duck over the last handful of years (decades?). To say that the now-former Blink-182 co-frontman (and present Angels & Airwaves frontman) has become a bit of a “UFO nut” is akin to saying former bandmate Travis Barker is a bit of a tattoo guy. You’ll recall that DeLonge penned a “children’s book” entitled “The Lonely Astronaut on Christmas Eve” a couple years ago. He launched the Strange Times website a couple years prior, serving as a home to “very latest in reported UFO activity and conspiracy-theory related events.”

Just prior to his recent highly publicized departure/non-departure/okay-it-really-was-maybe-a-departure from Blink-182, DeLonge sat down with Paper Magazine for a lengthy interview that goes pretty far down the tin-foil-hat rabbit hole. A couple highlights:
…You have to understand, I’ve been involved in this for a long time. I have sources from the government. I’ve had my phone tapped. I’ve done a lot of weird stuff in this industry — people wouldn’t believe me if I told them. But this is what happens when you start getting on an email chains with hundreds of scientists from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and different universities around the country, and you start outing seniors scientists from Lockheed Martin talking about the reality of this stuff, guys that hold 30 patents, guys that work underground out in the Nevada test sites in Area 51…

On having his phone tapped:
Yeah, yeah I did. For quite some time. Years ago, there was somebody who was gathering 150 hours of top secret testimony specifically for Congressional hearings on government projects and the US secret space program. People from NASA, Rome, the Vatican, you name it, they’re all on there.

On whether his safety was in jeopardy:
They (the government) do weird stuff. At the time I didn’t know it, but the person I was dealing with was being awoken in the middle of the night with clicking and buzzing noises and falling on the ground vomiting, every morning at 4 a.m. I know now that those are artifacts from mind-control experiments, where the same technology that we use to find oil underground, we can zap somebody at the same frequency that the brain operates on, and it can cause some really horrific things to happen.

On spaceships:
One time I remember bringing up a very specific craft that I believe we’re building, in secret, to emulate the phenomenon that our government has been observing for decades. … I went through the whole thing, and this engineer looks at me, this guy is 70 years old, and he goes, “You better be real fucking careful about what you’re talking about.” And I go, “Okay, so I’m close.” And he goes, “I’m not fucking kidding with you. You better be really fucking careful.” And he calls me up the next day and he goes, “I’ve had calls about you. If someone comes and asks you to get in their car, don’t fucking get in the car.”

It’s a fairly compelling, or at least entertaining, read; you can scroll through the whole thing here. Seems there are a few schools of thought here. First, Tom’s completely lost his mind and is too far gone to come back to real life. Second, Tom’s imbibed in his fair share of pharmaceutical-grade hallucinogenics over the years…and is too far gone to come back to real life. Third, though, is that Tom’s right. What if it’s that? What if Tom’s right? We’re all pretty quick to dismiss the supernatural rantings of a madman…but what if the madman is on to something totally next-level? What do you think…column A, column B or column C? Something else entirely?
