Thirty Seconds to Mars Launches Interactive Mosaic to Faces of Mars Campaign

Thirty Seconds to Mars is announcing the continuation of its Faces of Mars campaign. Starting today, everyone that lent their image to the first Faces of Mars campaign in support of the band’s wildly successful launch of This Is War will now be able to view their contribution in mosaic form.  The interactive mosaic can be found at http://thirtysecondstomars.thisisthehive.net/facesofmars/. For the ultimate Faces of Mars experience, fans can share the mosaic with friends via Twitter and on their Facebook wall where others can interact with the mosaic without leaving their friends page.
Started in 2009 to help launch the band’s new album, the innovative Faces of Mars campaign called on friends, fans and other notable persons to submit  photos that were used to create over 2000 individual album covers for This Is War. The fan participation contributions did not stop there, events called The Summit were organized in 9 different countries around the world, and then expanded to online, The Digital Summit, where fans were invited to record a variety of sounds, choruses and verses to be used in the album. Their efforts can be heard on various tracks throughout This Is War.

Fresh off the heels of winning the 2010 Kerrang Award for Best International Band, it was announced yesterday that multi-platinum rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars has been nominated for four 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. They picked up nominations for Video Of The Year, Best Rock Video and Best Art Direction for their Bartholomew Cubbins directed “Kings & Queens” video. “Kings & Queens,” the first single from their 3rd studio album This Is War (Virgin Records) spent 3-weeks at #1 on the alternative radio airplay charts in January.  The video features band members Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Milicevic participating in an underground critical mass, crank mob bike ride through the streets of Los Angeles in middle of the night.  Thirty Seconds to Mars was nominated for 2 previous VMA’s at the 2006 awards, winning the MTV2 Award for “The Killl.”

Since the December 9th, 2009 release of This Is War, Thirty Seconds to Mars have been experiencing several career highs. They just celebrated their third #1 single at alternative radio with the title-track “This Is War.” “Kings & Queens” hit #1 in January and the platinum-selling A Beuatiful Lie’s “From Yesterday” reached #1 in 2007.  This Is War’s third single “Closer To The Edge” will impact radio later this month.   It is already climbing the airplay charts throughout Europe and was just A-listed by Radio One in the UK.  In December, “The Kill” was voted the #1 alternative song of the decade by AOL Radio listeners. In addition to their MTV 2010 VMA nominations, Thirty Seconds to Mars was the most nominated band at the 2010 Kerrang Awards with 4 nominations, winning the award for Best International Band.  They have  won 3 previous Kerrang Awards an MTV Video Music Award, three MTV EMA’s, an MTV Latin and Asia Award and a Fuse Award.

Last week, Thirty Seconds to Mars announced new dates for the stateside return of their “Into the Wild” tour starting August 30th in Syracuse, NY and running through Oct. 16th at the Deluna Festival in Pensacola, FL.  Neon Trees, Violent Soho and New Politics are supporting on select dates. All upcoming tour dates are available at http://thirtysecondstomars.thisisthehive.net/blog/tour/ .  The first leg of the tour took them to 89 cities in 27 countries where they played in front of over 1.3 million ecstatic fans.  The European leg of the tour was the band’s first arena headline tour and they sold out shows around the globe including gigs at London’s Wembley Arena and Paris’ Bercy Arena.
