The band Thirty Seconds to Mars or 30 Seconds To Mars was formed by a famous actor Jared Leto and his older brother Shannon. Later, they were joined by Solon Bixter, Matt Wachter, who then left the band. Even though Jared Leto is a famous Hollywood actor, he tried not to use his fame in order to promote the group. He even refused to perform live.
In 2001, 30 Seconds To Mars signed a deal with a producer Bob Ezrin and recorded their first studio album Welcome to the Universe. The Leto brothers played almost all the instruments. The LP sold over 100,000 copies in the USA. The singles from that album “Capricorn” and “Edge of the Earth” were not very successful.
In 2005, the band released the second album A Beautiful Lie. The LP was much more successful than the predecessor. It reached the 36th spot on Billboard 200 and 38th spot on the UK Albums Chart. The LP sold over 4 million copies worldwide. The singles “The Kill” and “From Yesterday” were a big hit in the USA, UK, Australia, and many other countries. In 2006, the band received an MTV Video Music Award for the music video to “The Kill”. The LP was citified platinum by RIAA in 2006.
