Jazz Monroe of NME has interviewed former Blink 182 guitarist Tom DeLounge about his new project Area 51.
Here is an excerpt:
Since his “friendly divorce” from Blink-182 earlier this year, pop-punk renaissance man Tom DeLonge has swaggered into creative bachelordom. He recently called NME en route to Los Angeles, where he’s plotting a feature film set in a “universe that looks like Blade Runner, with action that feels like Star Wars, and a character that looks like he came out of A Clockwork Orange.”
The story is Poet Anderson, a cross-form project based on a teenage boy whose car plummets off a cliff and plunges him into a dark, lucid dream. The book, Poet Anderson… Of Nightmares, will be released on October 6, while DeLonge’s band Angels & Airwaves put out an accompanying EP ‘…Of Nightmares’ on September 4. Intrigued, we took the first opportunity to dive into DeLonge’s strange universe and get the inside story.
