Discussing the band's recently announced "Carnivores
" North American tour with 30 Seconds to Mars
, Linkin Park
mastermind Mike Shinoda
pointed out the need to get the spirit of rock back on radio.
Explaining what drove the bands to hit the road for a joint tour, Mike noted during an official press conference (via Loudwire
), "When I listen to the radio, these days I'm kind of missing that visceral rock energy, so I felt like this would be a great moment for these three bands to get together."
Chipping in after Shinoda's comment about rock shows being raw and fierce, Jared Leto
described the upcoming trek as "an orgy of art and music - no pun intended."
Asked on whether the two bands might perform together during the tour, Mike didn't write off the idea, but did stress that such things happen spontaneously, so no plans were made as of yet.
