The band 30 Seconds to Mars will be performing Friday, November 29 at the Rialto Theatre. Doors open at 7pm with the show starting at 8pm.
Written and recorded around the world from Europe, to India, to the band’s studio in California, LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS was produced by Jared Leto with previous collaborator Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel) co-producing four of the twelve tracks. Jared says that “this is more than an evolution, it’s a brand new beginning. Creatively, we've gone to an entirely new place, which is exciting, unexpected, and incredibly inspiring.”
In partnership with NASA, THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS launched the first single from the new album into space. Literally. Sending the very first copy to the International Space Station, it got its ground breaking premiere from the astronauts in orbit 230 miles above Earth.
Not content with stopping there, the artwork for the album was created by world- renowned artist Damien Hirst. ‘Isonicotinic Acid Ethyl Ester’ (2010 - 2011 Household gloss on canvas 99 x 147 in)’ graces the cover of LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS, with another Hirst piece titled ‘Monochromatic Sectors from Primary, Secondary & Tertiary Colour Ring, Dark Centre’ (2012, Signwriting paint on canvas, 96 in.) on the CD itself.
LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS is the band’s fourth studio record. It follows This Is War, which was hailed as “an artistic triumph” by Alternative Press, “a shimmering epic” by MTV.com, and contained the No. 1 Modern Rock radio hits “This Is War” and “Kings and Queens.” During its two-year tour in support of This Is War, the band sold out arenas around the globe, playing over 311 shows in nearly 60 countries on six continents to three million people – and breaking the Guinness World Record® for the longest ever concert tour by a rock band.
Prior to 2009’s This Is War, THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS released second album A Beautiful Lie in 2005. The record produced two Top 5 Modern Rock singles in “From Yesterday” and “The Kill”, with the latter setting a record for the longest-running hit in the history of Modern Rock radio when it remained on the national airplay chart for more than 50 weeks following its number 3 peak in 2006. The video for A Beautiful Lie’s title track and fourth single tok the band 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle… infoinfo… Along with this, “From Yesterday” was the first American music video ever shot in the People’s Republic Of China
THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS – comprising Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Milicevic – has sold over 5 million albums worldwide and the band’s videos have more than 300 million views on YouTube. The group has received numerous awards, including a dozen MTV awards worldwide, a Billboard Music award and honors from NME, Kerrang! and Fuse.
Artifact, a documentary about the band’s battle with its record label, has won the People’s Choice documentary award at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, the Audience Award at the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards and it was also an official selection of the 2013 SXSW film festival.
