Thirty Seconds to Mars Returning With 'Love Lust Faith + Dreams'

By March 18, 2013

Follow me on:

It has been four years since Thirty Seconds to Mars put out their last album, This Is War, which was delayed because of a contract dispute with their label. It sounds like there was less drama around the band's new record, Love Lust Faith + Dreams, which will be arriving on May 21. But not by much.

In a press release, frontman Jared Leto calls the new album "more than an evolution, it's a brand new beginning. Creatively, we've gone to an entirely new place, which is exciting, unexpected, and incredibly inspiring." Granted, this is rather predictable press-release language, but it is worth noting that the trio seem to have put all the War frustration behind them. (Well, maybe not entirely: Yes, Love Lust Faith + Dreams is coming out on Virgin, the label they fought over War, but Leto did recently make a documentary, Artifact, about the band's legal hassles.)

But even if legal skirmishes weren't a factor in the recording process this time around, there was still some tension within the group. Back in November, Leto confessed, "We had been on the road for almost two and a half years and I didn't know... I had no idea what the future held. I don't think any of us knew." Apparently, the guys were able to figure out a road forward together.

If you're excited about seeing Thirty Seconds to Mars on tour in conjunction with the release of the new album, living in a Europe is a must: That's where they'll be playing starting in June. As of now, there are no North American dates set, but I'm sure that will change soon.
