These are busy times for Tom DeLonge. In addition to the news that the longtime Blink-182 guitarist/vocalist was onto something with his space exploration (and possible alien discovery) endeavors, he’s also fully back at work with Angels and Airwaves.

On Monday, the band premiered a music video for “Kiss and Tell,” a new song from what is expected to be a new Angels and Airwaves album in 2020.

A bouncy song with requisite synth and shimmery production, matched to DeLonge’s vocals, the song’s video might bring a sense of familiarity to Blink-182 fans, given that he appears throughout it dressed in pretty much the same outfit he always wore in those days, complete with a backwards cap.

Said DeLonge of the song:

“So many issues in relationships revolve around needless miscommunication, and just missing each other’s point of view. This video represents how a few small negative moments between lovers can easily grow into much more destructive interactions over time.”

The song comes after the band premiered a clip for “Rebel Girl” a few months back:

As for DeLonge’s interest in aliens and scientific research, this paragraph from the news announcement of the new music video sums it up succinctly:

In addition to his work with Angels & Airwaves, DeLonge created To The Stars, a multimedia entertainment company that creates original content across music, film, television, and publishing. To The Stars’ content plays an essential role DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a think tank of artists, scientists, intelligence officers and technology experts that explore, engineer and educate the public about unexplained scientific phenomena. DeLonge currently has a television series (“Strange Times”) in development at TBS and executive produced a 6-part docuseries on The History Channel titled “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation.”
