Jared Leto-led band Thirty Seconds To Mars are back, this week releasing a teaser for their upcoming new single ‘Walk On Water’, taken from their upcoming fifth studio album. Hear the tease for the record below:

Set to drop on August 22, the single is the first slice of new material to come from the group in over four years; something Leto isn’t willing to forget!

He comments: “After four long years, hundreds of days, thousands of hours, gazillions of seconds, we have finally managed to finish a single fu**ing song. Whoever thought "soon" would actually be here "now". With the help of groundbreaking nanotechnology, chatbots and self-driving music software, we have wrangled from the depths of our cold black hearts, some semblance of a song. If you're still reading this press release and managed to get this far, you should probably get to work or school before you get fired or grounded. If you're stubborn, like I am, please continue and let me share with you a few words on our brand new single, the ever so subtle and minimalist ode we tenderly call 'WALK ON WATER'. Of course this entire paragraph is complete and total hogwash but I'm not sure exactly what to say about the song. Honestly, we miss you all. We can't wait to get back on the road and we couldn't be more proud to share with you the first first single off of our new album. And yes, we have been working on it for four years. The last time we put an album out, there were no self driving cars, no fidget spinners, President Trump was still that guy on The Apprentice and Jon Snow hadn't even died yet. #SpoilerAlert”

Thirty Seconds To Mars burst onto the scene in 2002, achieving worldwide success upon the release of their second album ‘A Beautiful Lie’ in 2005 and then releasing their third record, ‘This Is War’ in 2009. Album number four, ‘Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams’ dropped in 2013, but since then, fans have been chomping at the bit to hear something new from the group.

Leto has of course been busy taking on the world of Hollywood, with some of his most notable roles coming as the Joker in Suicide Squad and his new villain in the upcoming Bladerunner sequel.

Now though, alongside Shannon Leto and Tomo Milicevic, he hopes to enjoy success once more in the music industry; something we’re sure the trio will gain in spades with their new releases. We can’t wait to hear what comes next.
