Introduction: Matt Bellamy, frontman of the band Muse, recently revealed that Tom DeLonge of Blink-182 invited him to go on an alien hunt. This came after Muse was asked if they had ever looked into DeLonge and his supposed extraterrestrial interests. Bellamy then shared that DeLonge had promised to take him to a warehouse in Las Vegas where he claimed to have some weird alien stuff. However, DeLonge has yet to fulfill his promise. In the meantime, DeLonge has reunited with Blink-182 and is currently working on their best album yet. Muse is also getting ready to go on a world tour with Evanescence and Royal Blood. It’s sure to be an exciting year for both bands and their fans.
Frontman of Muse Matt Bellamy revealed that Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge invited him to go on an alien hunt.
Speaking backstage at the iHeartRadio ALTer Ego Festival, Muse was asked if they “ever did a deep dive” on Delong and “the alien situation.”
While bassist Chris Wolstenholme and drummer Dominic Howard just laughed at the idea, Bellamy replied, “Yeah. I got really deep into Tom DeLonge.
He explained: “I was hanging out with him and I really bumped into him. Apparently there’s a warehouse in Vegas with some weird alien stuff that he’s going to take me to one day. I hold him to it and every time I see him he says “he can’t do it this week, maybe next week”.
“Come on, take me there,” he continued. “He has some bold statements.”

Interviewer Ted Stryker then mentioned how DeLong “actually got the government to do some things,” referring to three UFO-related videos that were released by the Pentagon in 2020 after DeLong first released them. In September 2019, the US Navy also officially announced that the video showed footage of actual “unknown” objects violating US airspace.
“It’s amazing. I love that,” Bellamy said. “I think it’s good to lobby the government to look for aliens, they have to be out there somewhere.”
During a 2017 interview, Bellamy said he “might” have been abducted by aliens.
Not surprising Delong is too busy to take Bellamy on an alien hunt. Last year he reunited with Blink-182, released a new single ‘Edging’ and is currently working on “the best Blink-182 album we’ve ever done”.
Although a release date for the album has yet to be announced, Travis Barker has shared clips from the studio, and in March the band will embark on a massive world tour. See the full schedule of dates here. Tickets for the UK concerts can be purchased here and for the North American tour here.
There’s also DeLonge’s directorial debut, California Monsters, which he describes as a “coming-of-age movie with jokes.”
Meanwhile, Muse will embark on a North American tour next month with Evanescence before heading to the UK and Europe for a run of shows with Royal Blood. The show is in support of their latest album Will Of The People.
