Tom DeLonge didn’t quit blink-182 so you could stay in the dark about aliens. He wants to make sure fans know the truth is out there.

Penning an op-ed for Newsweek, the guitarist reveals that he first became interested in the subject while on tour with the band, adding, “I probably annoyed the hell out of my bandmates.”

DeLonge, who created the six-part TV series Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation writes in the piece, “it’s naïve to think that UAPs don’t exist.”

While he says he’s run into his fair share of “detractors and naysayers,” DeLonge is undeterred in his quest, noting, “The more I’ve been able to share my ideas with people I respected, the more sense of community I felt. And I want other people to feel that way, too.”

Are you with DeLonge? Do Aliens Exist? Ever see something strange in the sky?
