30 Seconds to Mars frotnman Jared Leto thinks there is more to American rock trio than just music, as he considers 30STM "not just a band, but an art project."
During a recent chat with MTV, the singer revealed that the group is looking to get involved in different projects, including books, short films and documentaries.
"We've always thought about 30 Seconds to Mars not just as a band but an art project," Leto said. "A place where we would make music, we would make books, we would make art in general, short films, documentaries."
Frontman also stressed out that music will still be in the very center of the band's plans, adding, "I mean really the music is the glue that binds it all together but it's certainly not just about the music, it's about community, it's about a life."
The trio has recently premiered a video for "Up in the Air," the first single off their latest album "Love Lust Faith + Dreams." With a total length exceeding eight minutes, the clip features a special guest appearance from burlesque artist Dita Von Teese.
"Love Lust Faith + Dreams" comes out today (May 17) via EMI and Virgin Records (May 20 in the UK and May 21 in the US). As the group's fourth studio effort, it's the first record they have released since 2009's "This Is War."
