Maxim: This is the first album Blink-182 has put out without Tom DeLonge. Are you guys still on good terms?

Hoppus: I’ve spoken with him a couple times. I have nothing but the highest regard for Tom and wish him the best in everything that he does.

Hoppus went on to talk about DeLonge’s interest in extra terrestrial life and aliens. Related interview excerpt can be read in full below.

“Maxim: Speaking of Tom, the dude seems to be pretty big in to extra terrestrial life and aliens. Where did this passion, or should we say obsession, come from?

Hoppus: I don’t know, but he’s always been really in to aliens and conspiracy theories. It’s always been something that’s very important to him and he’s always pursued. He does a lot of research and gathers a bunch of information, and he would talk about it all the time.”
