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.

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.
