Thirty Seconds To Mars Make Big Live Return

(Radio.com) 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.

Weenie Roast will also be the first big show the band has played in a year and a half. "It's going to be interesting," Jared said with a laugh. "It's going to be much different than the Church of Mars."

For the last month, the guys have been playing shows in churches across the United States, making stops in cities like Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago and New York. Each show only fits about 200 to 800 people, but for the band it's been a way to say thank you to some of their biggest fans.

With the release of their fourth album, LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS (out May 21), the band looks forward to showing off their new music in a festival setting, especially the record's lead single, "Up In The Air," which has been a hit with the Church of Mars crowd.

"Everyone has a great time on this small scale so I can't imagine what it's going to be like on the big scale," Shannon said. More including a stream of the video interview.
