    Tom DeLonge of Angels and Airwaves was recently interviewed over at GQ about his upcoming book, Sekret Machines:


    Oh my god, yeah. Oh my god. Oh yeah. There are a handful of moments when I remember pulling my truck over to the side of a very busy road when my phone pinged because I knew what was coming. As I was reading it, my hand would be shaking and my heart would be beating like a just ran a mile. Then I’d race over to somebody else’s house and bang on their door at 10 at night and say “You’ve got to come out here. I can’t tell you this over the phone.” It’s just incredible, incredible material. I’ve always been interested in this subject, but once people know that the UFO phenomenon is real and what it’s actually doing and what we’re doing, I think people are going to become as obsessed over it as I’ve been.

    The excerpt really shortchanges just how much delusion and self-aggrandizement oozes out of this interview.

    I said it in the foreword of the book and I'm here to say: It's true. It's all true. People are going to be shaken to their core when they find out some of the information I've been asked to communicate.

    Guys, the government has wanted to tell us about aliens for so long. They just couldn't figure out how to until the right messenger came along. But now that this pop-punk guitarist is here with his comic books, the whole world will know, once and for all.

    He sounds like a crazy person. Who knew it would come to this for him huh?

    Like maybe his book is actually interesting and shit but the way he talks all the time about everything he does just makes it so I wouldn't read his book if he paid me. Ugh.

    Yes, government officials are going to give top secret info out to a spaced out man. Makes sense.

    FYI that the title of the news post on the main page links to the GQ article instead of into the Chorus post.

    I'll continue to say it, his publicist has been doing a great job keeping him out there since the blink debacle.

    It's supposed to. I've got it set like that on purpose for external links to big pieces.

    Cool deal, just wanted to make sure it was on purpose since the other news articles were otherwise

    HAHAHA

    Saw the title of Tom's book and read that quote and seriously thought this was @Jason Tate's April Fools prank and that the link to GQ was going to be a rickroll or something. Wow. Sekret Machines. Cannot believe this is a real thing.

    I hate your phone and it's screen. That's what I've decided.

    Haha. ;-p

    Legitimately looks like how you would approximate his voice. I can totally hear you making this up on the podcast using the "I'M SO SOORRRRYYY" voice.
