Tonight THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS brings its CHURCH OF MARS headline tour to St. Peter’s Church in Chelsea. Playing a mixture of electric and acoustic songs, the band will preview material from its forthcoming album LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS in this special show.
LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS will be released on May 21 by Virgin Records. THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS will perform on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on the outdoor stage on May 21 and on “Conan” on May 22.
Written and recorded around the world from Europe, to India, to the band’s studio in California, the new album was produced by Jared Leto with previous collaborator Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel) co-producing four of the twelve tracks. The first copy of lead single “Up In The Air” was recently carried aboard the SpaceX cargo mission to the International Space Station. After the astronauts gave the single its groundbreaking premiere in space, it debuted on radio stations worldwide. The song is already a Top 5 hit at Modern Rock radio and is also climbing at the Active Rock format. Fans can view the accompanying short film “Up In The Air” at http://smarturl.it/UPINTHEAIR
