"Mars Across America" begins today, April 2.
Jared Leto of Thirty Seconds To Mars announced this morning (April 2) that he will embark on a cross-country journey called “Mars Across America” in celebration of the band's fifth album America, which will be released April 6 via Interscope Records.
Leto will depart from New York City later today and will travel across the country however he needs -- whether it's hitchhiking, Lyft rides, bicycles or Forrest Gump-like running -- and will visit destinations that showcase the subject behind the band's new album. In addition, Leto will hand out genetic testing kits from 23andMe to fans along the route, encouraging fans to discover more about their heritage. The week-long journey will end in the bands hometown of Los Angeles on Friday, April 6 for the albums' release day.
