Former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge has announced a new project called Sekret Machines, which will include both books and new music. The three books will be “based on actual events” and “from the imagination of” DeLonge. The subject matter draws on info obtained from sources “within the military and intelligence community” about UFOs.
“I wanted to tackle the subject of unidentified aerial phenomena because it seems so unbelievable,” DeLonge says in a statement. “I knew the story was fantastic regardless if you believed it or not. This was the one topic that could tackle religion, cosmology, science, history, politics, secrecy and more. After taking over a year to meet, prove myself and acquire eight elite advisors – each of whom has held the highest positions within the military, scientific and executive branch offices – this story contains true information from a secret historical record, some of which has never been heard until now.
“We all need to take a moment to think about the national security threat that exists when world powers race to understand and control advanced technology recovered from extraordinary places,” he adds.
The series will kick off April 5th with the release of a 704-page hardcover novel, Sekret Machines Book 1: Chasing Shadows, which DeLonge co-wrote with author A.J. Hartley (the Darwen Arkwright series).
The series will also include new music from DeLonge’s Angels and Airwaves project.
