For California natives like Thirty Seconds To Mars, KROQ’s Weenie Roast — even more so than Memorial Day — marks the unofficial start of the summer season. So it’s a real honor for the guys to return to Weenie Roast six years after they made their debut in 2007, this time as the night’s headliners alongside the Black Keys and Vampire Weekend.
Jared Leto remembers going to the show when him and his brother (and bandmate) Shannon were just kids. “It’s a real treat to be back,” Leto told Radio.com in our new video interview.

JARED Leto is a freak. The Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman is one of those rare humans who remembers everyone and everything.
And he meets thousands of people.
On a visit to Australia to present tracks from the band's Love Lust Faith and Dreams, he inquired about someone's child whose birth was due during his last tour here. He noticed my haircut.
While he was internationally famous as an actor, Leto had to start from scratch as a musician and the band has endured a turbulent trajectory to command the charts and the world's stages.
Mars' new album is less than a week away, and Jared Leto can't wait to tell Buzz Aldrin about it.
Thirty Seconds To Mars are less than a week away from the release of their LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS album, but at the moment, they have more important things on their minds.
"I'm talking to Buzz-F---ing-Aldrin right now!" Jared Leto exclaimed, furiously texting away on his phone. "He came to our 'Church of Mars' show in DC — one of the free shows we're doing around the country — and it was, needless to say, amazing to meet him."

In the word of Jared Leto “LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS isn’t just an evolution, it’s a brand new beginning for us.”
The brand new album by Thirty Seconds To Mars, LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS is set for release on May 21. This new album was written and recorded around the world from Europe, to India, to the band’s studio in California, the new album was produced by Jared Leto with previous collaborator Steve Lillywhite (U2, The Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel) co-producing four of the twelve tracks. The first copy of lead single “Up In The Air” was recently carried aboard the SpaceX cargo mission to the International Space Station. After the astronauts gave the single its groundbreaking premiere in space, it debuted on radio stations worldwide. The song is already a Top 5 hit at Modern Rock radio and is also climbing at the Active Rock format.
