Thirty Seconds to Mars confirm new album with massive tour

Just when fans thought Thirty Seconds to Mars’ new album would never see the light of day, the band has finally confirmed a release date for it. On Thursday (Feb. 8), frontman Jared Leto made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he announced the release date for the band’s upcoming fifth studio album. The new record, which seems to have been given the title The New Album, will be released on April 6 through the group’s new record label of Interscope Records. The release date confirmation comes over a year after the band promised fans that new music was on the horizon, but kept postponing the release of any new tunes.

Pre-orders for The New Album are currently available on the group’s website. Back in August of 2017, the trio dropped the first single from the new record, “Walk on Water,” which has found massive success on the charts and on rock radio stations around the country. Last month, the group released the record’s second single, “Dangerous Night.” The New Album will be the follow-up to 2013’s LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS.

In support of The New Album‘s release, Thirty Seconds to Mars also announced a massive tour which will find them touring across the continent during the months of June and July. The Monolith Tour will kick off on June 6 at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Ontario and wrap up a month and a half later on July 22 at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, Arizona. Hitting the road alongside Thirty Seconds to Mars for the excursion will be Walk the Moon, MisterWives, Joywave, K. Flay, and Welshly Arms.

Walk the Moon will be Thirty Seconds to Mars’ direct opening act, performing at all but two stops on the tour. MisterWives and Joywave will open on all the June dates while Welshly Arms and K. Flay will take over as supporting acts during the month of July. Pre-sales for the tour will go on sale beginning this Monday, Feb. 12, at 10 a.m. local time. General ticket sales will then begin a couple of days later on Friday, Feb. 16. The complete Monolith Tour itinerary can be seen below while the tour announcement video can be seen above.
