Watch Thirty Seconds to Mars’ emotional video for ‘Rescue Me’

Days after announcing the release of a brand new music video, Thirty Seconds to Mars have kept their word. On Tuesday (June 12), the California-founded band unleashed the music video for their latest single, “Rescue Me.” Instead of being over-the-top dramatic, like their past videos, the clip has a simple premise; a group of diverse people, including the Leto brothers, showing their vulnerable and emotional sides.

In an email sent to fans accompanying the three-and-a-half-minute clip, frontman Jared Leto reveals the inspiration behind the song. As it turns out, the track is about pain, empowerment, but above all, freedom.

“‘Rescue Me’ is a song about pain, a song about empowerment, a song about faith, and a song about freedom. Freedom from the wreckage of your past. Freedom from the bondage of self. And freedom to embrace all the promises that life has to offer,” the musician wrote.

“It’s also a song about the brutal war so many of us wage against fear, depression and anxiety in the hope that we might, one day, live a life filled with happiness and dreams. Pain does not discriminate. It can affect us all. In our bodies. Our hearts. Our minds. And often, when that pain is emotional or mental, we are afraid to speak up.”

Leto concluded the letter by thanking all the people involved in the video for being brave, selfless, and vulnerable by letting their true emotions show. Accompanying the letter, Leto included several links to organizations for those who need help including links to the Treatment Advocacy Center, Change Direction, Crisis Text Line, Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and the World Federation for Mental Health.

The impactful and emotional music video was directed by filmmaker-director Mark Romanek. Romanek’s role as director marks the first time in 13 years that Leto was not behind the camera directing the band’s music video.

“It was a gift to have him carry the weight so graciously and deliver something so profoundly simple and beautiful,” Leto said about the director.

The new music video comes hours after it was confirmed that longtime guitarist Tomo Miličević had left the band. On social media, the former member addressed his departure telling fans that “it is the best thing for me in my life and also for the band.” Miličević joined Thirty Seconds to Mars in 2003.

Last week, the remaining members of the group began their trek across North America on their “Monolith” summer tour. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be found here.

Thirty Seconds to Mars guitarist exits band

When Thirty Seconds to Mars began their press cycle in support of their fifth studio album, America, fans began to notice that longtime guitarist Tomo Miličević was missing from all the meetings. In March, frontman Jared Leto advised fans that Miličević was taking some time off to deal with a “personal matter,” though fans were left wondering what exactly the personal matter was. On Tuesday (June 12), Miličević formally announced his departure from the California-founded band.

Taking to social media, the guitarist posted a letter to fans addressing his decision to leave the band he had been a part of since 2003.

“I don’t really know how to explain in a note how I could have come to a decision like this, but please believe me when I say that this is the best thing for me in my life and also for the band,” wrote Miličević.

In his letter, he continues to thank the fans for letting him live his dreams on stage every day for the past 15 years and thanks the Leto brothers (Jared and Shannon) for letting him be a small part of their massive dream.

“Most of all, I want to say thank you to Jared and Shannon for allowing me the privilege to be a small part of their dream and to have been able to share the stage with them for so long.”

For fans who are angry or sad about his decision to leave the band, Miličević had one final thought for them: “Please don’t be sad or angry over this and most of all, please don’t be divided over this. This is a good thing and will be good for everyone.”

Read Miličević’s full statement here.

Now that Miličević is longer in the band, there is no word on whether the band has found a replacement, though it looks like it won’t affect their summer tour.

Last week, Thirty Seconds to Mars officially kicked off their North American “Monolith” tour. Tonight, the band will perform at the DTE Energy Music Theater in Detroit with Walk the Moon, MisterWives, and Joywave. The complete list of upcoming “Monolith” tour dates can be found here.

Thirty Seconds to Mars announce ‘Mars Across America’ journey

Whether you love them, hate them, or are eternally indifferent to them, one thing you can praise Thirty Seconds to Mars for is their unrelenting passion and dedication for promoting themselves and their music. On Monday (April 2), the California-founded band, more specifically frontman Jared Leto, took to social media to announce a surprise meet up at Madison Square Garden in New York. Shortly after the original post, he gave specific instructions as to where fans, and curious bystanders, should enter to arrive at an undisclosed location for a massive surprise.

As it turns out, this was just stop one on the group’s week-long trek across America in support of their upcoming fifth studio album. In a short video posted on Twitter, Leto confirmed his plans to travel across the country any way possible whether it be on a bike, by hitchhiking a ride, or even taking a hot air balloon just to showcase the subject behind the new record; America. The week-long trek will wrap up in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles on Friday, April 6, just in time for the album’s release.

“It’s a pretty big adventure. The album is called America and it comes out April 6 and to celebrate, I’m going to hitchhike, among other things, across the country from New York City to Los Angeles,” Leto explained to Ryan Seacrest during his morning radio show. “I may jump on a donkey in the Grand Canyon or take a hot air balloon.”

During the excursion, Leto will also hand out genetic testing kits from 23andMe to encourage fans to discover more about their heritage.

America is the follow-up to Thirty Seconds to Mars’ 2013 release, LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS. The band has already released four new tracks from the impending release including “Dangerous Night,” “One Track Mind,” “Rescue Me,” and lead single “Walk on Water.”

Listen: Thirty Seconds to Mars drop new song featuring A$AP Rocky

A day after confirming the title of their upcoming new album, Thirty Seconds to Mars has unveiled yet another new song from the impending release. On Friday (March 23), the California-founded band unleashed their third single; a track titled “One Track Mind.” The electronic-sounding tune features guest vocals by A$AP Rocky about halfway through the song. Listen to “One Track Mind” above.

“One Track Mind” will join previously released singles “Dangerous Night” and “Walk on Water” on the band’s upcoming fifth studio album, America. Back in February, the band formally announced that America (which at the time was being referred to as The New Album) would see a release date of April 6 through the group’s new label of Interscope Records. During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto led fans to believe that the record would simply be titled The New Album. Around the same time, speculation on social media was claiming the album would instead be titled America. Flash forward a month and those speculations were confirmed as true.

In addition to A$AP Rocky, the 12-track record will also feature guest appearances by Halsey (“Love is Madness”) and super-producer Zedd, who produced “Dangerous Night.” America is the follow-up to Thirty Seconds to Mars’ 2013 release, LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS.

In support of America’s release, the trio announced last month that they will embark on a massive summer tour. The “Monolith” tour will kick off on June 6 at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Ontario and conclude a month and a half later on July 22 at the Ak-Chin Pavilion in Phoenix, Arizona. As per the band’s recently unveiled track listing, the tour is named after one of their new tracks.

Hitting the road alongside Thirty Seconds to Mars for the excursion will be Walk the Moon, MisterWives, Joywave, K. Flay, and Welshly Arms. Tickets for the upcoming tour are currently available here while the complete list of your dates can be found here.

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.

Thirty Seconds to Mars unleash new song

When Thirty Seconds to Mars confirmed that they would release new music soon, fans should have expected that it would take some time. On Thursday (Jan. 25), the California-founded band finally unleashed another new song from their much-anticipated, and still untitled, fifth studio album. Taking to social media earlier this week, the trio warned the Echelon (their fan club) that they would finally unleash a new track before the week concluded.

As promised, the band unveiled their new single, “Dangerous Night.” Heading over to Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 program, frontman Jared Leto premiered the new song while also revealing in the interview that the song was record a mere four days before. Also noted by the band, the song was written by both Jared and Shannon Leto and was recorded at the International Centre for the Advancement of the Arts and Sciences of Sound in Los Angeles.

Listen to “Dangerous Night” above.

“Dangerous Night” will join “Walk on Water” on Thirty Seconds to Mars’ new record. While the band has not confirmed the name of the new record, posts on social media are claiming that the album will be titled America. If the record does in fact end up being titled America, it would not come as much of a surprise to fans.

Last year, Thirty Seconds to Mars made it their mission to collect as many photographs and videos to capture a day in the life of an American on the Fourth of July. Eventually, a lot of those submitted videos and photographs were featured in the group’s music video for “Walk on Water.”  As per the band, the rest of the videos and photographs will be featured in the group’s upcoming documentary, “A Day in the Life of America.”

The new record will be the follow-up to the group’s 2013 release, Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams.

iHeartRadio Music Awards unveil list of 2018 nominees

Now that 2017 has come to an end, iHeartMedia is ready to celebrate the artists that were widely played on their radio stations throughout the year. On Wednesday (Jan. 10), iHeartMedia announced the nominees for the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards. Leading the pack with a total of seven nominations are Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee for their summer slam hit, “Despacito.” The song is nominated for “Song of the Year,” “Best Collaboration,” “Latin Song of the Year,” “Latin Artist of the Year,” “Best Lyrics,” “Best Music Video,” and “Best Remix.”

Coming in behind Daddy Yankee and Fonsi are Rihanna, Bruno Mars, DJ Khaled, Khalid, Shawn Mendes, Taylor Swift, The Chainsmokers, Ed Sheeran, and Camila Cabello with a total of five nominations a piece.

All four categories will be voted on by the fans. Voting for the socially elected categories began on Wednesday and will conclude on March 4.

In what may be hard for a “fan army” to process, all four One Direction guys (Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan) are nominated for the “Best Solo Breakout” category.

In trying to put the power of vote in the hands of the fans, fans will also get the chance to vote for the “Social Star Award” and the “Best Fan Army.” Voting for those two categories began on Tuesday and will conclude on March 11.

Thirty Seconds to Mars celebrate the United States in new music video

After their constant use of the word “soon,” 30 Seconds to Mars has finally unveiled their much-hyped music video for “Walk on Water.” On Wednesday (Nov. 8), the California-founded band unleashed the music video for “Walk on Water” which is all about celebrating the United States of America. As promised by the band, the video features footage from fans around the country as they show what happened when they celebrate the Fourth of July. According to a statement from the band, over 10,000 individuals and 92 professional crews from around the United States, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, submitted videos which showcase what America looked like on that one day.

The music video begins with voice overs from journalists discussing the band’s decision to chronicle people across the country as they celebrate Independence Day. After showing anchor covering the story, the shot changes to the band standing in what looks like a tarmac at an airport countdown until they begin their ambitious project. The music video goes on to feature crowd-sourced footage that was all shot on the Fourth of July and submitted to the band as well as facts about the United States.

According to the band, the four-minute clip is only a sneak peep into the band’s upcoming documentary film, “A Day in the Life of America.” Watch the music video for “Walk on Water” above.

“Walk on Water” is the lead single off 30 Seconds to Mars’ still-untitled fifth studio album. While the group has promised that more information about the album will be coming soon (you know, their overused word), fans of the trio have yet to get anymore details about the pending release. But while an official release date for the album and its companion documentary is still unknown, Echelon members can rest assure that the band is not slowing down.

Last month, the trio announced a massive European tour that will kick off in early March and wrap up in early May. The complete list of tour stops can be seen below.

Listen: Thirty Seconds to Mars finally unleashes new song

After years of waiting for new music from Thirty Seconds to Mars, it looks like the band is finally giving their loyal fans just what they’ve been hoping for. On Tuesday (Aug. 22), the California-founded band unleashed their first new song in over four years, “Walk on Water.” In addition to premiering the new song, the group also released its lyric video. The almost three-and-a-half minute clip features crowd-sourced footage that was all shot on the Fourth of July and submitted to the band.

According to the group, over 10,000 individuals and 92 professional crews from around the United States, including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, submitted videos which showcase what America looked like on that one day. Their main goal for having Echelon members submit footage from such an important day in US history was to “capture a portrait of this country that is absolutely beautiful, challenging and unforgettable.” The footage ranges from politically charged to serene and tranquil. Watch the lyric video for “Walk on Water” above.

Last week, Thirty Seconds to Mars post a video online poking fun at their constant use of the word “soon” whenever they were asked about the status of new music. In the clip, an Interscope Records “executive” is seen reprimanding the group for always having excuses for not releasing new music and how that new music needed to be out now.

Despite the release of the new song, the group has yet to formally announce when their long-anticipated fifth studio album will be released. The band’s last studio album was 2013’s LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS.
