It is estimated that the band has sold more than 15 million albums since their formation in 1998.
In related news, Jared Leto has been busy going crazy for his latest release on the big screen, DC Comics’ Suicide Squad. He takes on the role of The Joker, one which he took very seriously and involved sending anal beads and used condoms to his co-stars. He is already receiving rave reviews and acclaim for his portrayal of the Batman’s arch nemesis from the theatrical trailers and peeks we have been seeing, prior to the release of the movie.
30 Seconds To Mars has already toured with one of the top bands of the new century – Linkin Park. The band was earlier signed on by EMI to a contract that bound them for 7 years, but failed to record the ascertained number of records during their deal. In a public battle with the record label, they had to go on a hiatus, though they are now with Interscope Records and may be going on tour sometime next year.
