It's no secret that Tom DeLonge, of Blink-182 and Angels & Airwaves, has placed quite a focus on aliens and UFOs. In case you’re still wondering if those creatures from above actually exist or not, DeLonge has announced that he will be publishing a new non-fiction book about UFOs, Sekret Machines: Gods, on March 7.
The book is based on interviews with scientists, engineers, intelligence officers and military officials, which the synopsis explains are called “the Advisors,” and the story will “confront a solid—if often unsettling—reality” in an attempt to challenge the way people think about UFO sightings and other related occurrences.
Sekret Machines: Gods was co-written with Peter Levenda, who, according to Rolling Stone has authored several books about history and the occult. The site also talked to Levenda and DeLonge about the new book, and DeLonge praised Levenda’s help and ability to frame his thesis.
“Sekret Machines is the opening salvo on the complacency of human institutions where the UFO Phenomenon is concerned,” Levenda told Rolling Stone.
“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.”
The foreword for Sekret Machines: Gods was written by Jacques Vallée, who most notably researches unidentified aerial phenomena.
Sekret Machines: Gods is the first volume in Gods, Man & War, and it is currently available for preorder here.
Last year, DeLonge released a young-adult science fiction novel, Strange Times: The Ghost in the Girl. The book is the first in a planned trilogy and features the same group that was in Delonge's graphic novel, Strange Times: The Curse of Superstition Mountain.
“This is a story reflecting some of the peripheral moments in my life. Of a suburban kid who grew up breaking rules, getting kicked out of high school, and obsessively looking for the more unusual and imaginative experiences that this world has to offer,” says DeLonge.
Plus, it’s also been reported that DeLonge will be directing his own film called Strange Times.
In addition to the fiction, DeLonge sent cryptic emails presumably about UFOs to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta. Read more about that here.
