Artist Spotlight: Thirty Seconds To Mars release album 'America'

Jared Leto of Thirty Seconds to Mars is traveling cross-country on what he calls “Mars Across America” in celebration of the release of the band’s fifth studio album, AMERICA, out today on Interscope Records. 

Leto will depart from New York City and travel cross country by any means possible: trains, planes, automobiles, hitchhiking, Greyhound bus, Lyft rides, NASCAR pit stops, bicycles and more. Along the way, Leto plans to visit unique destinations that showcase the title subject of the band’s album: AMERICA. 

To further showcase what America is made of, “Mars Across America” will hand out genetic testing kits from 23andMe to fans along the way, helping them discover more about who they are and their connection to others. The week-long journey will conclude in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles for a series of events to further mark the release.

Last week the band unveiled the title and track listing along with an ambitious global creative campaign for their highly-anticipated fifth studio album: AMERICA. The album contains feature tracks with superstars Halsey and A$AP Rocky, plus a Zedd produced track. The mood board details the complete visual campaign including multiple album covers, available in both physical and digital retail outlets. In addition to the album covers, the provocative images will be part of a global advertising campaign including outdoor billboards and posters in major cities.

Tickets for the bands recently announced 2018 North American “The Monolith Tour”, promoted by Live Nation, are on sale now, with a copy of the new album included with each seat purchased. The tour kicks off on June 6 in Toronto.

Full tour itinerary and more details available at thirtysecondstomars.com/tour.

The band most recently released “One Track Mind” featuring A$AP Rocky, and “Dangerous Night”, currently in the Top 10, following “Walk On Water” which spent 5 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Rock Airplay Chart, 4 weeks at #1 on radio’s Mediabase Alternative Chart and is currently on the Top 40 charts. “Walk On Water” was also used in collaboration with ESPN’s college football programming for the 2017 season across a variety of platforms. 

The official music video for the single is a sneak peek into the upcoming documentary film, “A Day in the Life of America.” Filmed on a single day, July 4th, 2017, in all 50 states plus Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, the documentary includes footage from 92 professional film crews, 10,000 fan submissions, and news & social media content. Directed by Jared Leto, the film presents a unique and historic portrait of America on a single day.
