As promised as long ago as last year, Angels & Airwaves will be releasing a new multimedia project in Sekret Machines
. The project will include a new Angels & Airwaves albums, fiction and non-fiction books, and a documentary.
“I wanted to tackle the subject of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena because it seems so unbelievable,” says DeLonge in a press release. “I knew the story was fantastic regardless if you believed it or not. This was the one topic that could tackle religion, cosmology, science, history, politics, secrecy and more. After taking over a year to meet, prove myself and acquire 8 elite advisors—each of whom has held the highest positions within the military, scientific and executive branch offices—this story contains true information from a secret historical record, some of which has NEVER been heard until now. We all need to take a moment to think about the National Security threat that exists when world powers race to understand and control advanced technology recovered from extraordinary places."
"What makes the book unique, I think, is that it takes a skeptically researched, investigative and realistic approach to history and eye-witness testimony to open up a sensational story about the secret world of military intelligence and extraordinarily advanced technology,” says Hartley. ”The result is a wild and unsettling ride."
The project launches on April 5th with the 704-page hardcover novel, Sekret Machines Book 1: Chasing Shadows (To The Stars/Simon & Schuster), the first in a three-volume series of fiction novels.
