30 Seconds To Mars send new song to space

March 13, 2013

Remember 30 Seconds To Mars? While the band had huge success in the past, it seems like they have been out of the spotlight for a few years, but have kept very busy with probably their favorite four letter word: tour. These guys have been on the road for so long that in December 2011, they got the Guinness World Record achieving the “Longest Concert Tour by a Rock Band,” playing 309 shows in just two years.

Since then, the band has worked on, and recently finished their fourth studio album, the first time they are releasing music in four years! Frontman Jared Leto said in an interview with MTV online casino News that he wrote and recorded about 70 songs for the album, a possible reason why it has been in the works for about a year. Although a release date, or actual album title have yet to be announced, the first single of the album “Up In The Air,” was sent to space. Launched to the International Space Station on March 3, the song was heard by those on the Expedition 35 crew that are aboard the station. For those back on Earth, you will be able to download the song on March 19. Be sure to check on their website for a countdown and other forthcoming album details. http://thirtysecondstomars.thisisthehive.net/
