30 Seconds To Mars: No Plans To Split
4
30 Seconds To Mars have denied rumours that they planning to split. Frontman Jared Leto had hinted to fans that the future of the band was in the air, following their recent live tour. In an interview with Kerrang magazine 30 Seconds To Mars insisted that they have no intention of splitting up soon. "We've never said this is 'the end'," Shannon Leto said. Jared added: "But I think there has been a question mark there for all of us. In part because people started to ask us so much about the future and our reaction is, 'Well, let's talk about the here and now'. Which is important to us. "We don't know what the future has to hold, but we know we're excited about it and this tour has been the gift of a lifetime. It's been a journey that we'll always look back on, as one of the most informative and fulfilling experiences of our lives." He added: "Over two years we've been pursuing this quest, travelling every continent besides one, playing over 300 shows, winning and losing and fighting and being at peace. "[We fought] a $30 million lawsuit with our record company, financing an album ourselves called This Is War and here we are on the other side." 30 Seconds To Mars have been on tour since 2009 playing more than 60 different cities across six different continents.

    I've never had any problem with them, they're a decent band. I think they're a prime example though of a band that has a douchy little kid fanbase and so people hate them by association. I've seen some valid criticisms of their work, but the same could be said of many other bands that don't get nearly as much hate.

    Don't understand the hate, they're a decent band. He's a good singer, not amazing, but good. I thought their first and most recent albums were very good efforts, while the other one in between was mediocre. They're good live when I saw them for free at World Stage, connect with the audience very well, at least the singer does. Interested it what they do next musically, and it wouldn't affect my life if they do in face break up.

    Not entirely sure why this is news. WOW A BAND DOESN'T HATE EACH OTHER? I look forward to whatever they do next, since all three of their albums have been great.

    This is good news, I like this band a lot. That being said, I feel like a lot of hate comes from the fact that their fan based is a large part female(compared to most other rock bands) This makes all the brute metal heads angry.

    Eh, I used to have some passionate hate for this band. Still don't like them, but the bottom line is that there are PLENTY of worse bands out there. PLENTY of Top 40 'same four chords' singers on the charts right now that need to stop getting paid to write the same songs over and over.

    One of the few hard rock bands I love, can't wait for another album.

    There's no need to hate on 30STM. I love this band the music and their message through lyrics...It's a good thing that they aren't splitting.

    I'm inclined to believe that the trolls you talk about are a very small percentage of UG users but are very vocal in their opinions.... don't make sweeping generalisations about 'most' people because as a rule you'll be wrong....

    Not spliting... bad news... I'm tired of the screams of that guy (he can't sing... just scream)

    Their debut album was excellent and went largely unappreciated. Then they sold out, went emo, and became popular. Go figure.

    I thought they were pretty decent at Leeds festival in August. Glad to see they're not going anywhere in the near future.

    I don't see them as a passionate band, what I hate is the trend to do corny lyrics targeting an specific group of teenagers. I know that a band needs to make money out of music, but I've always got the feeling that bands of this kind put money over passion.

    Yeah I think everyone on UG hates 30STM because they don't go "Chug chug, chug chug chug, squeel." That's why I don't even listen to other people's opinions anymore.

    Actually, I used to like them, spent 30 on a ticket to see them, and they were terrible, Jared can't sing live, their stage show was overly pretentious, put me off them completely, Jared should have stuck to acting!

    Now that they said this, they'll probably break up in the next few weeks or so. Always happens. *I like them though, dont ban me*

    Mmmmmmeh. 'This is War' sucked. Hopefully they try something less pretentious next, because their first two albums were absolutely amazing.

    That makes 2 of us! "30 Seconds To Mars have been on tour since 2009 playing more than 60 different cities across six different continents." Didn't maiden do something like 35 cities in 60 days?

    Well, being a pretty big fan of death and black metal, I can say this isn't always the case. I'm love 30STM, and I'm not really sure I understand all of the hatred of the band. I'm sure it has less to do with metal fans hating the music and more with the fact that the group is popular, makes money, and females tend to enjoy the music.

    Over two years...playing over 300 shows... 30 Seconds To Mars have been on tour since 2009 playing more than 60 different cities...
    So does that mean that they've averaged about 5 shows per city for the past couple of years? I saw them in 2010 here (Portland) and they were pretty good. However, the crowd that night was a real let-down, as many songs from the last album require audience vocals, and Stumptown didn't help Jared out too much.
