NEWS Round Up: Tom Delonge left Blink 182 to track aliens

Last week was possibly one of the most important weeks in history if you happen to live in the UK and will undoubtedly have a rippling affect across the West, if not the world. It sparked political debate on a mass scale and tensions are running high about the future of this country and the entire European Union.

But on to the real news (#banter), here’s what you missed if your timeline/feed was swamped in Brexit:

Tom DeLonge revealed his reason for leaving Blink 182 last January. Turns out the ‘irrevocable differences’ had less to do with music or direction and more to do with their lack of interest in…UFOs?



The vocalist and guitarist who founded the band in 1992 told that he was setting up a new multimedia platform to further his investigation into extraterrestrials. Speaking to, Tom said:

When you’re an individual like me, dealing with something that’s a national security issue, and you’re being gifted with the opportunity to communicate something you’ve been passionate about your whole life — something that has the opportunity to change the world over time — being a small part of that is enormously important for my life path.


Every time I die dropped a new song ‘The Coin has a Say’ and announced their 8th album, Low Teens. Panic! front-man Brendon Urie apparently features on one of the new tracks ‘It Remembers’, which is a bit of a turn op for the books, but it’s mix of sound that certainly has potential. These guys are one of my old favs and always put on a hell of show. Here’s hoping they announce an album tour soon.


Yellowcard announced they will disbanding after a final world tour. The 16YO pop-punk band decided it was time to come to an end after ‘months of discussion’. The tour kicks of in October in the states and ends here in the UK in December. Anyone else heartbroken?



Fallout Boy finally released their track from the new Ghostbusters‘ movie. The song (‘Ghostbusters (I’m Not Afraid)’) is a cover of the original 1984 theme song and both feature Missy Elliott. I have to say, the two vocals sounds pretty damn good together.


Finally, PVRIS had a running with the supernatural while on staying in Boston. Front-woman Lynn Gunn explained over twitter that the she experienced her door being unlocked/knocked in the night, mini fridge being opened, while her band mates’ TVs turned themselves on and off. Maybe it was ghosts?


From now on weekly round ups will be posted at the end of the week, between Friday and Sunday but I was having too much fun at London Pride to write one this weekend. What were the top headlines from your week? Leave a comment or tweet @poppunkmum
