30 Seconds To Mars have been on a serious rollercoaster ride since banding together in 1998. The band have experienced member changes, platinum record sales, close to 500 worldwide gigs and one very draining lawsuit. Needless to say, it's been quite a journey for the California-based trio.

Originally starting out as a family side project between Shannon and Jared Leto, the brothers were eventually joined by bass and keys player Matt Wachter in 2001 and Tomo Miličević in 2003. Between 2002-2005, the band released their first two records, first came their self titled debut, 30 Seconds to Mars, followed a few years later by the multi-platinum, A Beautiful Lie, which went on to sell more than 1.2 million copies in the U.S alone. Following the departure of Wachter in 2007, the band continued on as a trio and eventually enlisted bassist Tim Kelleher and Keys player Braxton Olita as touring members.

To date, the band have released four studio albums; 30 Seconds to Mars, A Beautiful Lie, This is War, and their most recent, Love Lust Faith + Dreams.

Love Lust Faith + Dreams was released in the UK on 20th May 2013 to a strong reception from fans and critics alike. The album's first single, "Up In The Air," released on 19th March, was nominated for a 2013 Kerrang Award for Best Video. Love Lust Faith and Dreams has reached Top 10 status in 9 countries, including UK and US. 30 Seconds to Mars can be seen on tour throughout Europe, Australia and North America this summer.
