30 Seconds To Mars are a band that often divides our readers. Some believe the Jared Leto fronted band deserve every bit of press and praise they’ve earned over the years, while others feel the superstar popularity of their vocalist has aided their progress and put them in a position far surpassing most bands of their caliber. Personally, I’ve always felt they were overrated to the extreme, but I’m always open to having my mind changed and who knows? Maybe this album will be the one to change my mind.
This morning a press release was sent out announcing 30 Seconds To Mars plans to release their new album, Love Lust Faith + Dreams, on May 21. The album will be the fourth studio effort from the group, and those interested in hearing the latest evolution in the band’s sound can click here to stream the album’s lead single, “Up In The Air.” The artwork for the album can be viewed below.
Call me crazy, but “Up In The Air” reminds me of 30STM attempting to foray into the same sonic territory as Cobra Starship, only worse. Comment below and let us know what your thoughts are on the latest from 30 Seconds To Mars.
