“Punk rock and UFOs: True Believers” by author and journalist Mike Damante is the follow-up to the non-fiction release “Punk rock and UFOs: Cryptozoology meets Anarchy” (2016), which looked at cryptozoology and Ufology as an underdog science. “Punk rock and UFOs: True Believers” is a call to arms to the common populace and UFO community to come together to better understand the unexplained. The book features quotes from some of the biggest names in UFO research, academia and pop culture like David Hatcher Childress (“Ancient Aliens”), Erin Ryder (“Destination Truth”), Jeffery Kripal (“Mutants and Mystics”/ Professor of religious studies), Grant Cameron, Erica Lukes (“UFO Classified”) and others.
“Punk rock and UFOs: True Believers” tackles topics like process of belief, religion, mythology, popular culture, disclosure, media, advances, science, the unexplained, the UFO phenomena becoming mainstream all in a thought-provoking package aimed at the common reader, as well as the UFO community.
“In a time where UFOs are slowly creeping more and more into the mainstream consciousness it is important that we as society WANT to know the truth, and are actively seeking it, “ said Damante. “’True Believers’ is that wake-up call to the every-day person and looks to bridge the gap to the UFO research community. The book was written to simultaneously synergize both groups to a higher-level of thinking.”
Damante worked for the Houston Chronicle as a copy editor, writer, reporter and web producer. He currently produces their "MIKED" music blog and has interviewed bands and musicians like Bad Religion, blink-182, Taking Back Sunday, Tom DeLonge, Tegan and Sara, Aerosmith, B.o.B and countless others
Punk Rock and UFOs started as a book based around the idea of rebelling against our conventional beliefs, challenging our own inner thought process by examining our cognition, memories, and media literacy. The website www.punkrockandUFOs.com aims to do the same by posting thought-provoking stories, posts, interviews and reviews about the world of cryptozoology and multi-media. The site intends to be a hub for relevant content regarding the subjects of UFOs, aliens, Bigfoot, the unexplained, and mixing cryptozoology and culture.
He’s appeared on Fox 26 Houston, Spectrum News Austin, “Somewhere In The Skies” podcast, Rogue Planet TV, “UFO Classified” with Erica Lukes, Radio Wasteland, Newsweek, the Houston Chronicle and other media outlet, and has been considered one of the “best fresh faces in the field.”
