On April 5th, former Blink-182 member Tom DeLonge will release Chasing Shadows, a 704-page book he co-authored. The novem is part of Sekret Machines, an overarching multimedia project that will include music and a yet-to-be produced documentary.
“I think there are going to be a lot of people who aren’t going to believe it. They won’t take a minute to read some of the material. They’ll hear ‘Oh, Tom’s doing some alien, flying saucer thing,’” DeLonge tells GQ. “That’s not what this is. This is a big deal.”
DeLonge claims that Chasing Shadows invents characters to introduce purportedly true stories, including UFO sightings. “The enormity of what’s being told might hit people in a weird way if it was just laid on their lap all at once,” he explains.
If you preorder this Chasing Shadows bundle, you will also get a “Sekret Machines Craft Guidebook” and an Angels & Airwaves digital EP.
