Press ReleaseWhen not on the road with his bands, blink-182 and Angels & Airwaves frontman Tom DeLonge always made it a point to read to his children, Ava and Jonas. Now the punk-rock papa is proud to share some of his story time with the world, through the release of his first children’s bookTHE LONELY ASTRONAUT ON CHRISTMAS EVE. This book, written by DeLonge, is a wistful story for the young and the young-at-heart alike. Wonderfully illustrated by Mike Henry, THE LONELY ASTRONAUT ON CHRISTMAS EVE,is a tale of a rocketeer alone on the moon on a cold Christmas night, and the gift he receives from a few unexpected (and extraterrestrial) friends. To celebrate the spirit of the holiday season, DeLonge and Henry are proud to announce a charity auction to benefit San Diego’s Rady Children’s Hospital at CharityBuzz.com.

With a pre-sale set for Mon., Nov. 25, THE LONELY ASTRONAUT ON CHRISTMAS EVE, will be available exclusively as a special, limited-edition “Lonely Astronaut Christmas Package” atAngelsAndAirwaves.com. Available for $50 to the first 1000 customers, the package contains: a hardcover, first edition of the book, including a certificate of authenticity signed by DeLonge; one digital version of the book for iPad, Nook or Kindle (delivered on release date); one “Lonely Astronaut” clear acrylic etched ornament; and a limited-edition t-shirt. Premium shipping available to guarantee delivery by Dec. 25.

Additionally, DeLonge and Henry are proud to announce a charity auction to benefit San Diego’s Rady Children’s Hospital Foundation. Beginning Mon., Nov. 25, fans can visitwww.CharityBuzz.com to bid on a package containing: The complete 22 pages of signed original art from the book, a DeLonge signed guitar, and a meet and greet with DeLonge in his San Diego studio (travel/hotel not included, alternate plans can be arranged for those unable to travel to San Diego). The auction will close on Fri., Dec. 13.

ABOUT MIKE HENRY:

After years in the circus where he gained an appreciation for organ music and sad clowns, Mike decided to change his life and take on the world of art. He has spent the last nine years working in video games, animation, toys and comics as an Animator, Concept Artist and Art Director. He is currently a Co-Founder at Big Menace Industries and the Art Director at Booyah in San Francisco, CA where he resides with his wife, son, dog, and four kooky ghosts.

DeLonge and Henry are also currently working together upcoming Angels & Airwaves multi-media projects, Strange Times and Poet.

It really seems like Tom is obsessed with the idea of an astronaut alone in space. That concept goes all the way back to Asthenia.
