According to Deadline, Tom DeLonge (ex-Blink-182, etc.) will be making his directorial debut with the upcoming sci-fi film “Monsters Of California.” The movie is based off a script that the frontman co-wrote with Ian Miller.
The film is being produced by “Creepshow” producer The Cartel with Striker Entertainment in association with To The Stars Inc. and it will feature: Richard Kind (“Mad About You,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Casper Van Dien (“Starship Troopers”), Arianne Zucker (“Days of Our Lives”), Gabrielle Haugh (“Jeepers Creepers 3”), Sports Illustrated model Camille Kostek, Jack Samson, Jared Scott and Jack Lancaster. Here’s a description of it:
“Monsters Of California is a coming of age adventure with a science fiction twist that follows teenager Dallas Edwards, played by Samson, and his derelict friends on a quest for the meaning behind a series of mysterious, paranormal events in Southern California. The truths they uncover begin to unravel extraordinary secrets held tightly within the deepest levels of the Government.”
“I have been playing this story in my dreams for decades. It represents all aspects of my strange existence, including growing up in San Diego suburbia as a disaffected teenage skateboarder. I had a tight tribe of friends who never missed an opportunity to piss people off and made me laugh so hard I would cry. The camaraderie, curiosity, angst and irreverence is everything that lead me to Blink-182 and this story is layered with my obsession with the tightly blurred lines between science and science fiction.”
Blink-182 have premiered a new video for their new song “Quarantine.” You can check that out below:
Mark Hoppus commented:
“This song is about the sadness, confusion, anger and frustration we are all experiencing right now. I hope that everybody is safe and that we can get through this very soon. Can’t wait to see you all on the other side.”
Travis Barker added:
“The song was inspired by the quarantine and the crappy punk rock music we have loved to play since day one. All the drums are one take and I even sang some backup vocals. Mark sounds more pissed off than I’ve ever heard him, and I really like it.”
The Pentagon have officially released three UFO videos from former Blink-182 guitarist/vocalist Tom DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy Of Arts And Sciences. According to CNN, the U.S. Navy confirmed that the footage was legit last year and the Pentagon have since published the clips “in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.”
With today’s events and articles on my and @TTSAcademy’s efforts to get the US Gov to start the grand conversation, I want to thank every share holder at To The Stars for believing in us. Next, we plan on pursuing the technology, finding more answers and telling the stories.
There is a bunch of new music to be heard from Blink-182 today (December 6). First of all, the band have released a new holiday track titled “Not Another Christmas Song.” On top of that, the group are also featured on “P.S. I Hope You’re Happy” by The Chainsmokers and “It’s All Fading to Black,” which appears on the late XXXtentacion’s posthumous album “Bad Vibes Forever.”
Blink-182 joined The Chainsmokers onstage during their November 26 show at The Forum In Inglewood, CA to perform their unreleased collaborative track “P.S. I Hope You’re Happy.” You can see footage of that below:
Blink-182’s Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus are featured on Goody Grace’s new song “Scumbag.” You can find an official video for that track below. Grace commented:
“Blink-182 is the reason I started playing guitar when I was a kid. Their music helped me through my entire childhood and teenage years, and I couldn’t be more honored to have them on a song of mine. Travis Barker reached out to me last fall to open for Blink in Las Vegas, and we’ve become great friends since then. I hope ‘Scumbag’ can be the anthem for people’s lives such as Blink’s entire discography is for me.”
During Blink-182’s October 26 set at KROQ’s 2019 Halloween Costume Ball, the band celebrated Halloween by wearing costumes inspired by Joaquin Phoenix’s “Joker” and performing a cover of Misfits’ “Skulls.” You can see footage of that below:
