In a rather odd interview this week, Tom DeLonge, of Blink-182 fame, told the world he is working with the government to investigate something “that's a national security issue”.

While hesitant to confirm he was looking into UFOs, he did say “we don't really call it ‘aliens’…it’s much more complex than that,” spurring on a wave of headlines, including our very own “Tom DeLonge says he quit Blink 182 to investigate UFOs”.

Now, the punk-rocker has gone on record to say that UFO hunting is just a side job, confirming that Blink-182 is still a priority in his life.

He wrote on Facebook: “Quitting the band to search for UFOs? Hahaha WTF [What the f*ck] is wrong with you media. I'm actually talking to Travis about us right now... Never did quit, remember?

“But- Am I currently working with people in the Government? YES. Including leadership from DOD, Intelligence and Executive Branch? YES. Just wait for the Documentary before considering ridiculous headlines.”

He then signed off the post with the hashtag: “#sekretmachines”. So, what could he be investigating? Aliens? UFOs? Most-wanted killers? Drug barons? Who hasn’t paid back their student loan? All of the above? Who knows. We’ll just have to wait for that documentary.
