Leto says of the project: “It’s an incredibly important time in our country and we are excited for people to film what they feel is important, impactful, challenging or inspiring. Whether it’s a single shot, a person, an event, or a story – we want to see your America. The birth of a child, the end of a life, the sunset, the sunrise, politicians, immigrants, a sky diver, a firefighter, heroes and villains, and every race, color and creed that make up the fabric of our nation. And of course – celebration and fireworks. Thirty Seconds to Mars is looking forward to you helping us capture America in all its imperfect glory and epic beauty and to celebrate the spirit of this great nation in an unforgettable way.”
Thirty Seconds to Mars has recently confirmed rumors that they will release their highly anticipated new album this year.
