His hard work – research and interest – has seemingly paid off.

GO ON TOM! Angels And Airwaves frontman Tom DeLonge has been named UFO Researcher Of The Year.

DeLonge was presented The OpenMinds.tv 2017 UFO Researcher Of The Year Award at this year’s UFO Congress (International).

Regrettably, DeLonge could not make it to the ceremony – but accepted the award via video message – watch below.

In the video above – the Angels and Airwaves frontman mentioned that he’ll be making an unspecified announcement in the future. *We’re looking forward to it!*

During the U.S. presidential campaigns, it came to light (via Wikileaks) that DeLonge contacted Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta about his interest in UFOs.

DeLonge has been working on a documentary on the subject matter of this article.
