DeLonge expects to release the still-untitled film later this year. He says the film is "a brief and modest look into the mythology of the Poet Anderson universe. Meant to be a bit ambiguous and artistic, the plot traces the edge of a girl having recurring dreams of a boy at her school. While the dreams are romantic, fun and adventurous, a real threat exists requiring someone there at all times to protect her."
Posey will play Poet Anderson and had this to say about the project, "As a big fan of Tom's, I knew all about the Poet franchise and couldn't have been more stoked to be a part of it.
"And I was so humbled that he picked me to bring Poet to life. It was nothing short of a dream to work with him, let alone having him compliment me on my work and feeling like a true friend of his rather than just a work partner. He's a real genuine, ambitious and inspiring person that I love calling a friend."
DeLonge explains how Posey became involved, "I was introduced to Tyler through some common friends, and after a brief conversation it became very apparent we needed to work together. He was a passionate guy, and desiring opportunities to create art that was out of the box and forward-thinking. This made him a great match for the way I think.
"Tyler, as a person, has a gravity and calmness that came through on this film. He added 'cool' to the Poet character, a steady hand of youth and bravado. The emotional range he brought showed the heart, and passion for what a 'Poet' does…and is."

"People will come up to a certain point, because you've got such a catalogue. You can just keeping changing songs. They are really living on the first five records, I think. I'm not sure a new record makes sense for them. Death Magnetic was a nice version compared to St. Anger. Hopefully, they keep going along that line and get some of the riffs back." Read morehere.

The inspiration stemmed from a lot of what I was dealing with at the time. Myself. I was having battles in my head everyday. I wasn't happy with who I was and I wanted desperately to change.
At the time we started writing this album I had come up with the term "Dream Eater" and it eventually blew up into an entire concept for the record. It involved this creature that was responsible for everything terrible that happened in the world. Wars, famine, natural disasters, terrible emotions, you name it.
The hero in the song "Dream Eater" was given one final choice. Turn around and face his fears, or forever be consumed by the darkness. The fight took place at the edge of his mind where he was surrounded by his memories, good and bad. The beast couldn't get the best of the hero though, and he went on to bathe in the light of his new found accomplishment. His sanity reborn.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!
