After giving fans a delicious taste of their Rock–God like talent in the sophomore album “A Beautiful Lie,” the upcoming release from Thirty Seconds to Mars, “This Is War” may prove to be an epic album in its own right. Read more here.
Formed by brothers Shannon and Jared Leto in 1998, 30 Seconds to Mars is a high-energy band that take you on a journey through time and space with anthems like “A Beautiful Lie,” “The Kill,” “Stronger” (Kanye cover), and “From Yesterday”, among others. Armed with their relentless work ethic and innovative sound, the band keeps winning fans over by the droves. Putting up numbers that rival our nations national debt, they have acquired over 100,000,000 YouTube views, 40,000,000 + Myspace plays, and nearly 500,000 Facebook fans.
As one of the people who make up their legion of Facebook fans, I have witnessed the band’s extraordinary ability to connect with followers first hand. One of the ways that they connect is by frequent updates on the social networking site, and within minutes and sometimes-even seconds, hundreds of people will have replied. Not to mention that in a groundbreaking move, the group gave fans the opportunity to use their pictures on the albums cover. The first 2,000 fans that submitted photos in accordance with the specifications now have a Thirty Seconds to Mars album cover to call their own (visit www.thirtysecondstomars.com for picture requirements).
Already worthy of the multiple awards and praise from critics that they’ve garnered, I predict that “This Is War” will even further cement the trio as rock legends in history. After listening to the first single “Kings and Queens” upon its early October release, I was quite pleased with the song. Not only did 30 Seconds to Mars stay true to their sound; I feel that they’ve progressed it forward. This may be due to the incredible talent that was recruited to work on the album, which includes Flood and Steve Lillywhite.
