Watch Thirty Seconds to Mars finally confirm a new song

Thirty Seconds to Mars has been teasing fan with the promise of new music for over a year now, and to say that fans are waiting on pens and needles may be an understatement. On Tuesday (Aug. 15), things changed when the California-founded band confirmed that they will have a new track out by the end of the month. Taking to social media, the trio posted that their new song will be titled “Walk on Water” and will make its worldwide premiere on Tuesday, Aug. 22. In addition to the new song’s release date, the group also posted a 36-second clip to give their fans a little bit of a chuckle.

The clip opens with a panoramic shot of Los Angeles and Interscope Label Meeting scrawled at the bottom of the screen. Viewers then hear a voice that does not belong to any of the three guys in the band, but rather, an “Interscope executive.” The executive begins to call out the band for their lack of new music and their continuous use of the word “soon” whenever the topic of new music is approached. You can see how all three guys look ashamed as they are being reprimanded. The clip ends with the  executive telling them that soon needs to be turned into now that’s when the image goes black with the Echelon logo and what the viewer can assume is snippet of “Walk on Water.” Watch the clip above.

According to a post on Twitter, it looks like Thirty Seconds to Mars will introduce the world to the new song during their live performance at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards set to take place on Aug. 27.

While Thirty Seconds to Mars has finally confirmed a new single, the Echelon is still waiting for them to formally announce the follow-up to 2013’s LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS.

Thirty Seconds to Mars unleash short teaser clip

While most of the country is preparing to see Jared Leto take on the iconic role of The Joker in Suicide Squad (out this Friday, Aug. 5), it appears that the actor is ready to take on another project. On Monday (Aug. 1), a video was posted on Leto’s band (with brother Shannon Leto and guitarist Tomo Miličević) Thirty Seconds to Mars’ Twitter, beginning the chatter of fans and speculations of new music. The clip, which comes in at 38 seconds, finds the group in what appears to be the desert.

The first half of the video features footage of them rock climbing, driving around in the desert (while giving the middle finger to the others), and hanging around a bonfire. The footage quickly shifts to the guys inside of a house getting down to some serious musical business. The video wraps up with a warped vinyl on what may be the desert sand before going black. As soon as the screen goes black, the band’s triangle symbol appears and is quickly replaced by Interscope Records’ logo (blink and you might miss it). The video then comes to a complete end with the text “COMING 2017” appearing on the screen.

Watch the teaser clip below.

While the band is leaving the video open-ended, the main speculation is that some new 30STM music will be released some time in 2017. Back in November of 2015, Leto posted an image on Instagram of himself in front of a microphone. Recently, Rolling Stone wrote a profile on Leto in which they followed the singer into the studio where he was in the process of recording some new tunes.

Whatever the outcomes is, we know that the Echelon will be excited. Thirty Seconds to Mars’ last studio album was 2013’s Love, lust, Faith and Dreams.

Thirty Seconds to Mars Tease New Music

 

Thirty Seconds to Mars seems to have been put on the backburner for a while as frontman Jared Leto got into serious character as The Joker for his upcoming role in the highly anticipated 2016 film, Suicide Squad. Now that filming for the movie has wrapped and promotional events for it seem to be minimal, it looks like its time for Leto, his bother Shannon, and guitarist Tomo Miličević to get back to music.

On Tuesday (Nov. 3), the frontman posted a picture of himself in a recording booth on Instagram. Under the image was a simple caption which read “#MarsIsComing”; great news for those 30STM fans who have been silently waiting for some new music from the group. Leto’s Instagram post from the studio can be seen below.

In addition to the new music tease, 30STM revealed earlier this week that they will once again sponsor “Camp Mars” after its successful launch this past summer. For those not familiar with “Camp Mars,” fans of the band also known as the Echelon, were given the chance to head to Malibu at the end of August experience summer camping with a twist.

The inaugural three-day event included summer camp activities such as hiking, climbing, yoga, cooking classes, raising the flag, and camp fire sing-a-longs. Thirty Seconds to Mars also performed two shows and had numerous DJ sets during the weekend to keep the fun going. Not too bad of a way to wrap up the summer.

The new music that Leto is teasing will be the first set to new music since the group’s 2013 release, LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS. Following the release of the album, the band headed out on tour, proving that the Leto brothers and Miličević, never sleep.

Echelon members, it’s time to pack your overnight bags with sunscreen and bug spray because we’re going to Camp Mars!

After a day of hints and teases, Thirty Seconds to Mars have announced they will be launching their own three-day summer camp experience this August.

The experience has been named “Camp Mars” and will take place during the weekend of August 22-24 in Malibu, CA. Attendees will get the opportunity to participate in “hiking, climbing, yoga, cooking classes, raising the flag and camp fire sing-a-longs,” according to a statement released by the band.

In addition to all the summer camp-centric activities that will be offered, the band will also hold two performances during the weekend as well as numerous DJ sets to keep the fun going.

“We have always looked to do things for our audience that are fun and unique,” frontman Jared Leto told Rolling Stone about the summer camp.

“What better way to celebrate the summer than in beautiful Southern California with the Mars family in full.”

Packages for Camp Mars will be sold through Adventures in Wonderland and will officially go on sale beginning this Friday, June 19, beginning at 9 a.m. PST.

Watch the band’s video announcement for Camp Mars below, and if you have any questions whatsoever about the summer camp and the activities, the band have also give potential attendees the people to contact regarding questions and concerns.

Thirty Seconds to Mars Release ‘City of Angels’ Lyric Video

30 Seconds to Mars

The last that we heard about Thirty Seconds to Mars , there was a lot of backlash about what they wanted from fans to be featured in their music video for “Do or Die.”

If the news of that is a little foggy, the band had been asking fans who really wanted to be in the music video to get tattoos of the lyrics that mean a lot to them and then to submit proof of them getting the permanent inkage on their skin. The video eventually did get released, but it managed to stay under the radar no matter how much negative backlash and publicity the band had gotten for that.

Now, the band are back with a lyric video for their new single, we are assuming titled, “City of Angels.” The song which is also featured on their recently released album, Love Lust Faith + Dreams, is a personal favorite from the album while the lyric video can be seen below.
