30 Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto reveals fan sent him an ear in the post
30 Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto has revealed that he was once sent an ear in the post by a fan.

Speaking to XFM, the actor-turned-rocker discussed some of the strangest gifts he had ever been sent and said: "The fans are an incredibly committed and passionate group of people. Going to a show is kind of like visiting Japan, you expect gifts on your arrival. You get all kinds of wonderful things."

He then said: "Someone cut their ear off once and sent it to me, that was very strange. A whole ear. The Van Gogh move. The note just said, 'Are you listening?'. I never knew who it was, who's missing their ear out there." Asked what he did with the gruesome gift, meanwhile, he jokingly replied: "I poked a hole in it and wore it as a necklace" and then added: "Just don't put your entire body in a case and send it to us."

Earlier this week, 30 Seconds To Mars announced that their new studio album 'LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS' will be released on May 20. The LP will be their fourth studio release and the follow-up to their 2009 effort 'This Is War'.

The album's tracklisting is as follows:

'Birth'
'Conquistador'
'Up In The Air'
'City Of Angels'
'The Race'
'End Of All Days'
'Pyres Of Varanasi'
'Bright Lights'
'Do Or Die'
'Convergence'
'Northern Lights'
'Depuis Le Debut'
