Former Blink-182 singer-guitarist Tom Delonge’s academy for UFO research has racked up a debt of over $37 million.
The “To The Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences”, which Delonge founded in 2015, aims to “understand phenomena [that] has always been suffocated by mainstream ideology and bureaucratic constraint”, according to the company’s website.
The company claims that they’ve “mobilized a team of the most experienced, connected and passionately curious minds from the US intelligence community, including the CIA and Department of Defense, that have been operating under the shadows of top-secrecy for decades”.
Now, according to the SEC, the company has “incurred losses from operations” and it has “an accumulated deficit of $37,432,000”. The filing goes on to say that these factors “raise doubt about the company’s ability to continue”.
Delonge is best known for co-founding the influential pop-punk band Blink-182 in 1992 with Mark Hoppus, and Scott Raynor. Delonge left the group in 2015 and was eventually replaced by now permanent member Matt Skiba.
