• Tom DeLonge remembers that his early interest in UFOs led to speculation regarding his standing with his rock band, Blink-182. “It was funny because when I first started dealing with all these three-letter agencies, and groups within the military industrial complex, I remember I couldn’t tell my bandmates in Blink,” DeLonge recalls. “I think there was a great level of frustration with them because they wanted to go record and tour, and I was in the middle of setting up the foundations to create a vehicle for the disclosure of the UFO phenomenon.” “I remember that it started leaking out that I wasn’t focused on my band, and that I quit my band to chase aliens and all these just absurd things, but I couldn’t talk about it … I had to kind of go back to my roots as a punk rocker and not really care what anyone thinks.”
• Talking about UFOs is no small thing to Tom DeLonge whose company, ‘To The Stars Academy’ strives to increase understanding about phenomena such as unidentified flying objects, is at the center of a new History series, ‘Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation.’ “To The Stars Academy is very much involved in the congressional side of things,” says DeLonge. “My goal was simply to educate and disseminate the information and to apply pressure on the congressional offices to appropriate the correct funding mechanisms and to create the correct national security policy around this issue.” (see 42 second trailer for “Unidentified: America’s UFO Investigation” below)
• DeLonge, 43, has long been fascinated by UFOs, and his involvement with the matter has only grown as he’s learned more about it. DeLonge said the public would be surprised to learn that the United States has worked on the UFO topic with countries considered to be adversaries. He says how the UFO situation is handled will “make or break our future.”
Talking about UFOs is no small thing to longtime Blink-182 rocker Tom DeLonge.
That’s why the singer, whose company To The Stars Academy strives to increase understanding about phenomena such as unidentified flying objects, is at the center of a new History series, “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation.”
“To The Stars Academy is very much involved in the congressional side of things,” DeLonge told the Daily News.
“National security policy, making sure that the elected leadership of the country gets the correct briefings, gets the correct information, creating a formal reporting mechanism and standard for these machines that are witnessed in the sky. This show is a really great way to get the public to understand the hardcore, tangible, real evidence.
“My goal was simply to educate and disseminate the information and to apply pressure on the congressional offices to appropriate the correct funding mechanisms and to create the correct national security policy around this issue.”
The series, which premieres Friday and was executive produced by DeLonge, features interviews with former government and military officials who discuss some of the shocking sensations they witnessed while working in high-ranking positions. Among those who took part are Luis Elizondo, the former director of the secretive and now defunct Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, and Christopher Mellon, who served as the nation’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and Intelligence.
“Unidentified” promises to feature government video of UFOs and recently authenticated evidence.
