Tom DeLonge Says He Quit Blink-182 Due To ‘National Security Issue’


Former Blink-182 singer/guitarist Tom DeLonge told Mic in a new interview that he left Blink-182 in order to explore the existence of aliens and UFO’s.

“Well it’s not so much about Blink. It’s about what I’m doing with my life now. 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.

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.”

He also said that aliens should not be called aliens. “First of all, we don’t really call it ‘aliens.’ In pop culture, that’s a term people throw out there, and rightfully so because the government spends a lot of time and a lot of money throwing that term out there. But it’s much more complex than that.”
