Thirty Seconds to Mars feature Jared Leto on lead vocals/guitar, Shannon Leto on drums and Tomo Milicevic on guitar. Together they’ve sold over 3.5 million albums worldwide and have been viewed over 100 million times on Youtube.

In 2002 they released their self titled debut album. This was followed by ‘A Beautiful Lie’ (2005) which produced two Top 5 Modern Rock singles in ‘From Yesterday’ and ‘The Kill’ which set a record for the longest running hit in the history of Modern Rock radio when it remained on the national airplay chart for more than 50 weeks following its No. 3 peak in 2006.

Their latest release ‘This is War’ (2009) has been called their strongest and most accomplished work to date, spending 12 weeks on the 5FM Top 40.

Thirty Seconds to Mars have won numerous awards including an MTV Music Video Award, three MTV EMAs, MTV Latin, Asia and Australia Awards, a Fuse Award and three Kerrang! Awards. The band have played over 500 shows around the world including Lollapalooza in the U.S, Download in the UK, Germany’s Rock Am Ring, Japans Summer Sonic and South Africa’s My Coke Fest in 2008 with 5FM where the response from the fans was nothing less than incredible!
