30 Seconds To Mars has released a lyric video for "Up In The Air," the first single from the band's upcoming new album. The single hit rock radio on Monday (March 25th), with the album, called Love Lust Faith + Dreams, out on May 21st. The lyric video features time-lapse photography taken from the International Space Station, where the first copy of the single was recently shipped by cargo rocket.
- 30 Seconds To Mars will also issue a full music video for the song, which will presumably be directed -- like all the band's clips -- by singer Jared Leto under his pseudonym Bartholomew Cubbins.
- Leto told us a while back that his experience working as an actor has been beneficial when it comes to making videos for 30 Seconds To Mars: "It's nice to walk on a set and to feel the familiarity, just to say, 'Yeah, I know this, I feel at home there as well.' And it's nice to be able to draw on some of the experience."
- Love Lust Faith + Dreams will be released on May 21st. The disc follows up 2009's This Is War. Leto called the new CD "a really important album for us . . . we've gone to an entirely new place, which is incredibly exciting."
- 30 Seconds To Mars has yet to announce tour plans behind the record.
Meanwhile, Fall Out Boy has also issued a video, a full one this time, for "The Phoenix," the second single from the reunited emo act's new album, Save Rock And Roll. The clip acts as a prequel to the video for the disc's first single, "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light 'Em Up)," which sits at Number 16 on the Modern Rock radio chart.
- Save Rock And Roll is due out April 16th..
- Fall Out Boy has released five albums to date, including 2005's breakthrough From Under The Cork Tree, which featured the singles "Sugar, We're Going Down" and "Dance Dance."
- The quartet's last record, Folie A Deux, came out in 2008.
