Blink-182's Tom DeLonge Co-Wrote A Book, 'Poet Anderson …Of Nightmares', And Here's Why You Can't Wait To Hear What's In It
Set "The Party Song" to repeat on your iPod, and throw on that Take Off Your Pants and Jacket Tour T-shirt you knew you had a reason for not throwing away. That's because former Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge has written a book, and it's coming to you on October 6. And it sounds like a thrill ride, to say the least.
Delonge's debut novel, Poet Anderson ...Of Nightmares, is co-authored by bestselling writer Suzanne Young. If you're game to venture into the world they've created, here's what you'll be in store for, according to the press release:
Mostly, I'm just interested to take a peek after all of the... interesting interviews DeLonge has offered up over the past several months — one of which is this PAPERMAG piece in which the Jack-of-many-artistic trades talks about UFOs, aliens, and government coverups. If you haven't read it yet, take five and do it — it's certainly good enough to hold you over until the book comes out.
Of course, in classic battle-of-the-bandmates fashion, DeLonge is releasing the novel a mere two weeks before former bandmate, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker's memoir Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums is scheduled to hit shelves. Drumrolls all around.
