Thirty Seconds to Mars has been speaking to Team Rock about experiences on their latest tour. As frontman Jared Leto notes, the series of shows has been a highlight of the band's career:
"This tour has been the best, one of the biggest and boldest we have ever done to date. I think this new album has made the live show much more compelling. The songs have added a new dynamic that we had always been missing ... it's nice to take a journey in different directions. The new album has given us a gift in that."
In the interview, guitarist Tomo Milicevic noted the band’s attitude towards doubters of their music:
"There will always be doubters I suppose, but we don't really pay much attention to them. At the end of the day, what do they know. It's not for them. It's for the people who give a sh-t. We make the music for us and for [fans]. Pretty much everyone else can f--k off."
Leto reiterated his comments by stating that "the greatest form of revenge is massive success. That is a fun form of revenge. I'm not a big believer in vindictiveness or revenge, I'm not too concerned with that. But it's nice to work really hard and see it pay off. That's a wonderful thing."
