Teaming up once again with his creative partner, AJ Hartley, this dynamic duo is taking us on an exhilarating journey through the captivating realms of UFOs and nuclear testing sites, and we couldn’t be more excited.

Set to hit the shelves on June 11, “Trinity” is poised to be an extraordinary experience, seamlessly blending DeLonge’s fascination with extraterrestrial encounters into a gripping narrative set against the backdrop of a purported UFO event in 1962.

Known for his insatiable curiosity about the unknown, DeLonge shares his enthusiasm for the project, saying, “This story takes place around a seminal UFO event that I believe happened. AJ and I wanted to capture a sense of what it was like to be in this pivotal moment in American culture in 1962.”

The story unfolds in Trinity, Nevada, a charming town on the desert’s edge, housing a military base dedicated to nuclear testing. Protagonist Van Lopez, along with his brother Andy, gets entangled in a web of mystery and danger when they spot peculiar lights in the sky.

As the nuclear blast reveals an otherworldly presence over Trinity, Van finds himself on the run, pursued by a Soviet agent and government forces eager to conceal the unearthly secrets he holds.
