30 Seconds To Mars to release 'more evolved' new album in 2013
Jared Leto says the follow-up to 'This Is War' could be 'the best thing that we've ever done'
Leto says that the LP will be "stronger, better and more evolved." He also told BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe that the record will be "a complete transformation for us" and added: "I really think that this could be the best thing that we've ever done."
The follow-up to 2009's 'This Is War' has been recorded across the world, with sessions taking place in Asia, Europe and America.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that 30 Seconds To Mars will be playing next summer's Download Festival, alongside Queens Of The Stone Age, Alice In Chains and Motorhead.
Last year it was rumoured that the rockers would be splitting and Leto admitted to Lowe that the band too were uncertain about their future.
He said: "People started to ask us about a new album. We had been on the road for almost two and a half years and I didn't know... I had no idea what the future held. I don't think any of us knew."
Meanwhile, Leto has signed up for his first movie role in three years. He has joined the cast of The Dallas Buyer's Club alongside Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner.
The film is inspired by the real-life story of Rod Woodroof, a Texas electrician diagnosed with AIDS who began smuggling alternative drugs into America to help himself and other AIDS patients.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leto will appear as a "flamboyant cross-dresser with HIV who helps Woodroof".
