Tom DeLonge Is Finally Releasing That Book About Aliens He Quit Blink For

Certainly one of the better reasons to leave behind a career in the world’s most popular pop punk band is so you can spend your days investigating UFOs and national security – which is exactly what blink-182‘s Tom DeLonge did. 

We’re about to reap the spoils of that particular career choice, too: DeLonge’s book, Sekret Machines: Gods will be released on March 7th. Written with Peter Levenda, Sekret Machines is supposed to be about changing reader perceptions of aliens and UFO phenomena based on interviews with scientists, engineers, intelligence officers and military officials. 
Speaking about it, Levenda gave some hints as to the content:
It’s designed to shake people up, to make them question their assumptions. This book is not only a new take on the Phenomenon – by treating it as a given – but a new approach to religion that takes a hard look at religious texts and ideas from around the world to discern the traces of an event that changed us forever.

In other words: ayy lmao.

Obviously, it all sounds a little bit naff. But hey: DeLinge has really thrown himself into this project. He’s authored two novels, both of which were released with the Sekret Machines prefix. Does that make it tough to figure out what’s fiction and what’s non-fiction? Maybe!
DeLonge says he picked up a lot of info about this book from NASA, the Department of Defence and officials in the aerospace industry.
“It’s very hard to think, ‘How did this guy in a band get access like that?’” DeLonge told Rolling Stone. “It sounds crazy. But it’s because I can speak to a very specific audience. I earned their trust. I knew my material.”

Word up.
