Tom Conrad (ex-The Academy Is...) has updated his blog about his recent departure from the band. You can find the message below.
MessageI apologize. I would have said something sooner but it was not the right time nor was this the right place to do it and honestly, it still isn't. There's not much to say with what happened besides I dont want people thinking I quit the band. Thank you to everyone that has reached out to me and shared such kind words. You mean the world to me. Big thank you to everyone at Crush, FBR, APA, the Crew and definitely TMx2. But what now for Thomas Conrad you ask? Not quite sure but I will keep taking photographs and this will be the place to view / read of what...

The Academy Is... have left an update on their website regarding Tom Conrad leaving the band to pursue other interests.
MessageAfter two years on the road together, Tom and the Academy Is... have gone in seperate directions. Tom and his photographs can be found at forevernever.net. William, Mike, Adam, and The Butcher can be found in an abandoned warehouse, somewhere on the southside of Chicago writing their second album. While we are not too excited about the potential internet drama this news might invite, we felt our fans should know. We hope you understand and can continue to support both The Academy Is..., and Tom.

Now that you've had a chance to hear We Don't Need to Whisper and possibly see Angels & Airwaves live, let me know if there are any questions you'd like for me to ask him.

Tom Delonge (Angels And Airwaves / ex-Blink 182) admits that, at one point, he considered pursuing a political career. Check out Billboard.com or scroll below for the article.
Tom Delonge And PoliticsWatch out Hillary! Former Blink-182 goofball turned prolific Angels & Airwaves frontman Tom DeLonge recently told us that he has considered throwing his hat into the political ring.

“There was awhile when I actually thought I was going to be doing stuff in politics,” he said. “I spent a great part of the election year traveling with John Kerry and really being involved in the campaign. If Kerry would have won -- I was pitching all these different initiatives to his administration, y’know?...

Yesterday on 91x, Tom Delonge of Angels & Airwaves fame spoke up about 9/11. He believes that the Bush Administration orchestrated the attacks of September 11th as a psychological attack on the American public to rally support behind an endless Middle East war and a decrease in American Civil Liberties. You can read the full story here. A former member of the Bush administration also spoke out about 9/11 being an inside job, which you can read here.

Below is Tom Delonge's latest journal entry from MacbethFootwear.com:

Tom Delonge Journal Entryso here is some news for you.....First of all, anybody claiming they heard demos are full of shit. They are hearing old shitty recordings of blink, the music does not sound like blink or box car, so the speculation should end there. Second, the song to be released on December 13 is finished, but the label is too excited to release just a song, so at the last minute it got changed. Let's see, third, it isn't some depressing emo project, it is music that is best described as.....well, the best stuff I have ever done.....too vague?.....well, I promise my fans will like this the most out of...
