FUSE TV - Tom DeLonge: I Did Not Quit Blink-182 Over UFOs

Two days ago rock, media went wild with the news that Blink-182 founding guitarist Tom DeLonge left his beloved pop-punk band to study UFOs. It was kind of a gross over-reading of what he actually said, which was that he took a break from Blink to work on other projects, but we digress. 

Last night, DeLonge shared a statement about the confusing news, revealing that he and Travis Barker are in communication. The pair did tweet at each other, so that's progress...right?
