Yesterday I spoke briefly with Shark's BFF and leader of Thirty Seconds To Mars, Mr. Jared Leto.
Despite the gradual worldwide rollout of the new record that began last week, the album hit American stores and digital music providers today.
I asked Jared about everything from the concept behind Love Lust Faith + Dreams versus the music industry battle that served as the underlying theme of This Is War to Jared's philospophy of Thirty Seconds To Mars as not just a band but an all-encompassing artistic outlet. Plus, given 30STM's experimental nature and the explosion of electronic dance music over the past few years, did EDM provide any additional influence to the band's new material?
Plus we poke a little fun at this week's new release battle between 30STM and Daft Punk.
