    The band’s third album, ‘This is War,’ released in 2009 garnered them another three top ten singles, the first two of which peaked at the number 1 spot on the US Alternative Songs chart. Additionally, ‘Closer to the Edge’ was the fastest selling rock single in the UK and topped the UK rock chart for eight consecutive weeks. The subsequent tour set a ‘Guinness World Record for the longest concert tour by a rock band’ and helped to establish Thirty Seconds to Mars’ reputation as one of the hardest working rock bands. 

    This period also serves as source material for their documentary, Artifact, which documents the band’s struggle to renegotiate their recording contract with record label Virgin/EMI. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival where it won the People’s Choice Documentary award.

    ‘Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams,’ the band’s fourth studio album marked an evolution in their distinctive sound and was positively received both critically and commercially. The album reached the top ten in fifteen different countries and the first single, ‘Up In The Air,’ peaked at number 3 on the Billboard ‘Hot Modern Rock Tracks.’ Kerrang called the new album bigger than this planet while Allmusic’s Stephen Thomas Erlewine called it their boldest, brightest, most imaginative record yet.

    Coming off the back of an outstanding European festival circuit and some scintillating performances, this is one band that you do not want to miss.​
