30 Seconds to Mars has existed in various formations for nearly 12 years, led by actor Jared Leto and his brother Shannon. What started as a hobby on the side of Leto's screen career gradually became the Requiem for a Dream star's main focus, with the band's self-titled debut released in 2002.
This year the three-piece returned with their third album, This Is War, a collection of tough but sleek rock tracks produced by Flood and Steve Lillywhite, also known for their work on albums by U2, The Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails.
Released in December 2009, the record received mixed reviews from critics but was a huge hit with fans, many of whom had contributed to the album when the band invited 1,000 people to sing on tracks including 'Night of the Hunter' and 'Kings and Queens'. The latter proved to be the most scrobbled album track on This Is War, with a hardcore contingent of fans providing an average of 8 scrobbles each over the course of 2010.
30 Seconds to Mars will be on tour across North America during January and February 2011, following the release of a deluxe edition of This Is War.
