Tom DeLonge Drops An Extraterrestrial Punk Single

Tom DeLonge is having a hell of a 2015. After a strange, very public fallout with his former band, Blink-182, and the impossibly strange admittance of his alien encounters the guitarist is now prepping the release of his first solo album To the Stars Demos, Odds and Ends. Supposedly comprised of, you guessed it, demos and rough drafts of songs that were initially meant for Blink, fans are clamoring to hear what the potential music from the band would have sounded like. Today, the first official release from the upcoming album has found it's way to the internet.

"New World" is is definitely not meant for his supposed space epic rock opera main gig Angels and Airwaves. Opening with a heavy punk bass riff, the song instantly has a sense of angst that DeLonge has not shown in years. The guitar riffs are heavy, yet simple, but DeLonge has always been more catchy than technically proficient. In recent years, DeLonge has centered his voice as the main instrument usually, in attempts to emulate his rock god hero Bono. His lyrics continue to reach for larger themes but are now definitely placed in a darker context than in recent memory. The song mixing is definitely different. Still, DeLonge can still write an incredible hook and keep listeners satisfied. Singing "I'm uncontained/I'm crucified/I found a new world/I'm lost deep inside of it," it feels like DeLonge is finally letting us how the situation has affected him. Honestly, I miss Travis and Mark but if this is what it takes for Tom to make punk music again and not the laughable grandeur of Angels and Airwaves, I guess I will have to take it.

Check out "New World" below and get stoked for To the Stars Demos, Odds and Ends expected out in April.
