30 Seconds To Mars About To Get A Bit Closer… To Mars!


Jared Leto-fronted 30Seconds to Mars are launching their latest track into space.

Alternative rockers 30 Seconds to Mars are gearing up for the release of their new album, and they’re doing it up big. This morning (March 1), the band launched their new single, “Up in the Air,” literally up in the air.

Specifically, the debut copy of the single was packed inside the 1,200 pounds of cargo and other scientific gear being transferred from Florida’s Cape Canaveral to the International Space Station, according to Rolling Stone. This is certainly a first, and the guys in the band — Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Milicevic — were all slated to appear in Florida to stare into the air as the Space Exploration Technologies cargo capsule holding their track, the magazine reports.

“Up in the Air” will officially premiere to the world on March 18. The band has announced they will premiere the track and conduct a live online interview with none other than astronaut Tom Marshburn, who will be on the space craft. Find more information about the event on 30 Seconds to Mars’ official website. “Up in the Air” will be released via all the major digital outlets later this month.
