Tom DeLonge has actually sent something into space.

When Tom Delonge’s not working to expose the truth behind Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (something he’s been really good at), he’s working with his band Angels and Airwaves, the group that started as an offshoot of blink-182. In fact, a new album entitled Lifeforms will be out on September 24.

Tom and the group entered a partnership with Sent into Space, a company that, well, sends stuff into space. In this case, it was a “renewable hydrogen capsule” that “played an out-of-this-world premiere of the entire album along with displaying the tour and album information.” It’s presumably in orbit right now. See?

Okay, fun. Now what?

Here’s the first single from Lifeforms.
