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:
