Ex-Blink-182 guitarist and singer Tom DeLonge has made a startling admission about his reasons for quitting the band.

Speaking to Mic, DeLonge revealed that he quit the band to expose the truth about aliens and UFOs. Seriously!

He’s even written Sekret Machines Book 1: Chasing Shadows, a book melding science fiction and true-life accounts of alleged alien sightings and abductions.

“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.”

DeLonge even described UFOs as a “national security issue”.

“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.”

It turns out playing Fox Mulder is such a time-consuming gig, DeLonge had to quit Blink-182 to dedicate himself to the cause.

Based on Blink’s back catalogue, we should’ve all seen it coming…

The truth is out there, Tom. The truth is out there…
