The Rock Out Spotlight: 30 Seconds to Mars

Monday, February 4th, 2008

Created in 1998 by Jared Leto and his brother, Shannon, 30 Seconds to Mars began as a small family project. Things began to speed up quickly, and Matt Wachter later joined the band as bassist and keyboard player. After working with small revolving door of guitarists (as the band’s first two guitarists, Kevin Drake and Solon Bixler, left the band due to issues primarily related to touring), the three auditioned Tomo Miličević to round out the band’s roster.

The band logo

The band’s phoenix logo (which the band named "Mithra") bears the phrase "Provehito in Altum", the band’s motto. Roughly translated from Latin, this means "Launch forth into the deep"; but a more stylized version would be "Rocket in(to) High(ness)".

This is 30STM’s new video, A Beautiful Lie. It’s got quite a nice backstory to it. Enjoy.

Here’s another video for A Beautiful Lie, but this time, it’s live. As I said before, a band’s gauge is live music. Good live = GOOD


Nothing like showering you people with fantastic music. :D
