“‘Into The Night’ is about walking the person you love through a nightmare,” DeLonge says. “I believe that we all encounter those we love in our dreams all of the time.”
“The book is an epic story about a boy who is a lucid dreamer,” says DeLonge of the upcoming novel, which continues the Poet Anderson story begun on Angels and Airwaves’ 2014 LP, The Dream Walker, and its accompanying animated short. “He realizes that he has the power to meet people in their dreams and guide them through their nightmare. But in the dream world, there are forces of light and darkness that are constantly at each other’s throats for the possession of the dreamer themselves. A Poet, also known as a guide, can help navigate this war.”
According to DeLonge, the novel and new EP are just the latest steps in what he’s envisioning as an ongoing multimedia saga. “We are in the process of preparing for a series of major motion pictures,” he says. “This is going to be very exciting, because if it happens the way it seems like it may, we will be able to portray a world that has not been created on film before.”

Given how stacked the deck was against Blink ever getting back together in the first place, the fact that they got over that hurdle and made a record is pretty monumental. That they learned from that difficult recording process and used the experience to make new music that is just as strong if not stronger than anything on Neighborhoods is impressive. If these are the kinds of Blink-182 songs that get written when all three members are in the same room together, then all we need is someone to slap a padlock on that door during their next rehearsal. With any luck, they should crank out a freakin’ masterpiece next time.
Alternative Press Call “Dogs Eating Dogs” a strong effort and gave the EP 4/5 stars! Go read the full review for yourself here!
