30 Seconds To Mars - This Is War 2009
30 Seconds to Mars is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1998. Since 2007, the band has been composed of actor Jared Leto (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, songwriter), Shannon Leto (drums, percussion) and Tomo Miličević (lead guitar, keyboards). Following the departure of Matt Wachter (now of Angels & Airwaves) in 2007, Tim Kelleher became the bassist for the group, performing live only with both Jared and Miličević recording bass for studio recordings, while Braxton Olita (keyboards) was added to the touring lineup in 2009. Previously, the group also featured guitarists Solon Bixler (now of Great Northern) and Kevin Drake.
To date, 30 Seconds to Mars have released three studio albums – 30 Seconds to Mars (2002); A Beautiful Lie (2005); This Is War (2009) and two extended plays – AOL Sessions Undercover (2007) and To the Edge of the Earth (2008).
A Beautiful Lie earned the group a number of awards and nominations, winning three MTV Europe Music Awards and four Kerrang! Awards among others.
This Is War is the third studio album by American rock band 30 Seconds to Mars, released through Virgin Records and EMI on December 8, 2009. It peaked at number 18 on the Billboard 200.
In the February 11 issue of Kerrang! magazine, the working title for the new album was revealed as This Is War.
Jared released a small amount of information about his trip to Hawaii, and recorded a song called "Hurricane" with Kanye West.
On April 28, they returned from EMI and the lawsuit was annulled.
Soon after the announcement of the lawsuit settlement, Jared and 30 Seconds To Mars told MTV News that their third album had had its release date pushed back from April 2009 to some time in September 2009. Although the released dates were changed many times, 30 Seconds to Mars released This Is War on December 8, 2009.
On February 19, 2010, 30 Seconds to Mars began their worldwide Into the Wild Tour in Nottingham to support This Is War. The tour has 7 legs that will end on 18 December 2010. They are also scheduled to appear at the 2010 MTV VMAs on September 12, 2010.
