Not too long ago, guitarist Tom DeLonge was touring the world with his fellow bandmates in ’90s punk-pop band Blink-182, but last year he decided to quit the group in order to investigate UFOs. No, really.

The former guitarist and singer says that he decided to leave the band because of a lifelong interest in UFOs, and “can’t tour nine months with enough time to do the enormity” of what he’s setting out to discover.

In the most recent WikiLeaks dump, an email from DeLonge to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton‘s campaign manager surfaced, apparently outlining the disclosure of sealed governmental UFO files.

Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, had openly discussed extraterrestrials before, and had famously requested governmental officials to reveal what they “know” about the alien coverup. DeLonge’s introduction makes it clear that the two had also spoken before for a “special documentary.”

Here is the email in its entirety:

In January 2016, DeLonge emailed Podesta again, this time specifically referring to a Gen. McCasland (the subject of the email), who, according to DeLonge, was in charge of the laboratory where the alien spaceship residue was “shipped” from the alleged crash site in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.

DeLonge claims McCasland “knows what [he’s] trying to achieve.”

The WikiLeaks dump included no messages from Podesta to DeLonge, but a calendar notification indicates that a person named Susan McCasland Wilkerson accepted a meeting invitation from both Podesta and DeLonge.

As of this writing, the Clinton camp has not addressed the UFOs emails.

DeLonge has a new project, a multimedia franchise called Sekret Machines, which investigates “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.” Their work will include fiction and non-fiction books, music from DeLonge’s new band Angels & Airwaves, and an as-yet-untitled documentary (mentioned above). DeLonge makes it a point that unidentified craft in the air are not called “UFOs,”and his group doesn’t use the term “aliens,” either.

“We don’t really call it ‘aliens,'” he said. “In pop culture, that’s a term people throw out there, and rightfully so because the government spends a lot of time and a lot of money throwing that term out there. But it’s much more complex than that.”

Sekret Machines’ investigations are a serious business, the former rocker insists, and he says that any research or work they do will be conducted with the greatest of care.

DeLonge was replaced by Matt Skiba after he left Blink-182.
