Tom DeLonge is set to make his feature film directorial debut with Monsters of California. Speaking with ABC Audio, the Angels & Airwaves frontman and former Blink-182 guitarist shares that he’s “so proud” of the upcoming movie.

“I think people are gonna love it,” DeLonge says. “I think people are gonna be kinda blown away by what we’ve pulled off on such a micro budget.

From a story perspective, DeLonge describes Monsters of California as a “really honest reflection of who I am.”

“It’s skateboarders in San Diego, the paranormal, a lot of d*** jokes, but with a really big philosophical ending about life and what it’s all about,” DeLonge says. “I’m really proud that it hits all those marks in a really great, Amblin kind of adventure.”

The release date for Monsters of California has yet to be announced, though it’s expected to premiere sometime this year. In a recent Instagram post, DeLonge teased the size of the titular Monsters with a photo of a giant footprint.
