12 years ago, Tom DeLonge quit one of the biggest bands in the world to create an art project to tell stories through multiple formats. He has since executively-produced Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigations for The History Channel, which airs at the end of May. He co-founded a company, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, which is up and running, and even works with US government officials with a view to “changing the world” through science, aerospace and entertainment. There have been films, novels, comics, and there’s even a kids’ TV show on the way. As well as all of that, Angels & Airwaves are back with new music and their first tour in seven years. And that’s just the start.
A lot of artists dabble in different mediums, but DeLonge dives in head-first. We caught up with the former Blink-182 frontman to find out how he’s keeping his head above the water.
