Tom DeLonge, widely known as the former frontman for the iconic pop-punk band Blink-182, has not so quietly become one of the leading voices in the world of UFO research and advocacy. His journey, filled with intense passion and unyielding dedication, started long before he left his music career behind, but it has undeniably intensified in recent years.
DeLonge’s fascination with extraterrestrial life and unidentified flying objects dates back to his early youth, but it wasn’t until his departure from Blink-182 in 2015 that he truly dove into the depths of the UFO phenomenon. His desire to understand and reveal the truth about UFOs led to the establishment of To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science (TTSA), a public benefit corporation that he co-founded in 2017.
The TTSA, with DeLonge at its helm, aimed to explore the outer edges of science and unravel the mysteries of the universe, particularly those linked to unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs). The team comprises former high-level government officials and scientists with deep experience in intelligence and advanced technologies. Together, they strive to stimulate a new cultural conversation about the implications and possibilities of extraterrestrial existence.
Under DeLonge’s leadership, TTSA managed to bring UFOs and UAPs into mainstream conversations like never before. Notably, it was footage acquired, curated, and released by TTSA that led the U.S. government to publicly acknowledge the existence of UAPs, marking a significant breakthrough in the discourse around these phenomena. In 2020, the U.S. Department of Defense officially released three of these videos, authenticating the unidentified objects captured on film by Navy pilots.
DeLonge’s pursuit has not been without controversy, with skeptics questioning his credibility due to his rockstar past. However, his relentless dedication, coupled with the tangible results his efforts have produced, are gradually silencing the doubters. His work with TTSA has reshaped the way the public and, crucially, the government perceives the phenomenon of UAPs, reframing them not as a topic of fringe science, but a legitimate area of research and concern for national security.
In 2021, DeLonge took his efforts a step further by working as an executive producer on the documentary series “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation,” which aired on the History Channel. The series featured insights from former military personnel who had witnessed unidentified aerial phenomena and aimed to bring greater public awareness and understanding of the UFO phenomenon.
Tom DeLonge’s journey from punk rock stages to the forefront of UFO research has been nothing short of extraordinary. His unflagging belief in the existence of UAPs, combined with his dedication to sharing this belief with the world, has thrust the conversation surrounding extraterrestrial life into the spotlight. As he continues to push the boundaries of knowledge and understanding, one thing remains clear: DeLonge’s exploration of the stars extends far beyond his days with Blink-182.
