Tom DeLonge has been named UFO Researcher of the Year at the 2017 International UFO Congress.
The former Blink-182 guitarist and co-vocalist parted ways with the 'All The Small Things' hitmakers in 2015 in order to focus on his research surrounding unidentified flying objects (UFOs), and he's now been honoured with the OpenMinds.tv 2017 UFO Researcher of the Year Award at the 2017 International UFO Congress.
Tom, 41, was not present at the ceremony, but recorded a message that teased his research is not yet over, as he said he's "not done" with his exploration into flying objects which could lead to the confirmation of life on other planets.
He said in his speech: "There's a lot that I can't say, but there's some that I can. And I'm so appreciative that I've been acknowledged for this stuff, but I'm not done."
The 'What's My Age Again?' musician also called for rallying support of his next project - which is expected to be announced within the next two months - as he urged those watching to "be a part of it".
He continued: "I want you all to know in the UFO community that whoever's passionate about this kind of paradigm-shifting subject matter, I need you all to look really really closely at that announcement and I need you to be a part of it.
"I want you as an educated group of people to read between the lines and look at the history of what I've been doing over the past couple years and get a sense for what the hell I'm getting ready to do. If you guys come along for the ride, it's going to be pretty fantastic."
Tom closed his speech by teasing "some big s**t" on the horizon within his research.
He said: "I'll leave you with one thing: My job has only just begun on this subject matter and there's some big shit planned and I'm excited about it. Just remember whatever happens in the civilian world, it's game on."
