Tom DeLonge, former singer-guitarist for rock band Blink-182, has decided to take an interesting new career path.
The 40-year-old musician is taking a step away from performing and is now focusing on matters of "national security," especially the issues concerning UFO's and extraterrestrial activity.
Fans of the band are already familiar with DeLonge's fascination with aliens as evidenced by his songs titled "Aliens Exist," "The Flight of the Apollo," and "Valkyrie Missile."
Blink-182 broke up last year, and DeLonge has since moved on to launch a multimedia company called Sekret Machines dedicated to investigating "Unidentified Aerial Phenomena." Just recently, DeLonge admitted that the band broke up for more reasons than just a falling out between band members.
DeLonge informed Mic, "When you're an individual like me, dealing with something that's a national security issue, and you're being gifted with the opportunity to communicate something you've been passionate about your whole life - something that has the opportunity to change the world over time - being a small part of that is enormously important for my life path."
Regarding his departure from the band, DeLonge also stated, "But I can't do everything. I can't tour nine months out of the year with enough time to do the enormity of what I'm setting out to do."
DeLonge's passion for the topic is not a new found interest, he has been intrigued and passionate about extraterrestrial phenomena for quite some time now. He told Mic, "I first got into it in junior high. I don't know why. I just had some free time on my hands and I found myself at the school library looking for books on the subject matter."
He now feels as if this is important work in his life stating, "There's been hundreds and hundreds of thousands of eyewitness accounts. Trace evidence that's been analyzed by scientists around the world. Events have happened on the ground. It's all around us. I know of stuff I can't talk about right now."
Possibly DeLonge will be able to talk about more in detail of this secretive subject matter in some of the products to be launched by his new company Sekret Machines.
