30 Seconds to Mars Plan for New Sound on Next Album
It has been a while since fans heard anything from 30 Seconds to Mars, and earlier in 2012, rumors of a breakup began to circulate. However, the group fronted by Jared Leto has other plans, and while a hiatus between 2009’s This is War and the present occurred, they’re now moving forward with a new album.
Recently, Leto spoke about the upcoming album, calling the sound a “complete transformation.” A title has not been decided yet, but the album, their fourth, is expected for some point next year. Speaking about what a release could sound like, he said: "It will be stronger, better, more evolved. It's a complete transformation for us. [We have] cut out a lot of fat and focused on the core of what we do."
Leto went onto say: "I really think that this could be the best thing we've ever done."
In talking about this in-progress release, the frontman explained that the group didn’t know if one would materialize. After spending over two years on the road in support of War and taking a break, the band experienced fans asking about a new record. In addition, 30 Seconds to Mars is now part of the Download 2013 festival lineup, along with HIM, Motorhead, and Queens of the Stone Age.
Holding fans over between releases was a recent remix of track “Night of the Hunter” by drummer Shannon Leto. A track from War, “Night of the Hunter” was re-worked to be more dance floor friendly.
