30 Seconds to Mars heartthrob Jared Leto says the band’s upcoming album is ‘stronger’ than previous sets
30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto may have signed on to appear in a new movie, but he still has his sights firmly set on his music career. Speaking with BBC Radio 1 host Zane Lowe, Leto chatted about the group’s upcoming new full-length, and he says it’s “stronger” and “better” than previous releases.
“It will be stronger, better, more evolved. It’s a complete transformation for us,” Leto said (via Gigwise).” [We have] cut out a lot of fat and focused on the core of what we do. I really think that this could be the best thing we’ve ever done.”
30 Seconds to Mars’ new album is slated to arrive sometime in 2013. The yet-to-be-named release is the group’s fourth studio album and the follow-up to their highly successful 2009 release, “This Is War,” which sold over 1 million copies and landed at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 chart. Needless to say, fans are pumped to see what the band has to offer this time around.
In other 30 Seconds to Mars news, Leto and the guy are set to play the 2013 Download festival in the U.K. next June along with Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains, Motorhead, A Day to Remember and more.
