30 Seconds To Mars have posted a trailer for their new concert film.
‘Camp Mars: The Concert Film’, captures two nights of live performances at the band’s three-day overnight “adult summer camp” in Malibu, California.
In the clip, fans walk around the campsites while festival-sized crowds cheer in the distance. According to director and frontman Jared Leto, who does the voiceover for the film, he envisioned creating a large-scale music event like Camp Mars for years. You can watch the trailer below.
“The very first Camp Mars was pure magic,” Leto said. “It was insane and amazing and we knew in the first five minutes we would be doing it again. Music, art, nature, friends, food and fun.”
The three-day, overnight festival launched in 2015 in late August and was billed as a summer camp and more intimate music festival. Camp Mars featured camp activities like hiking, yoga and campfire sing-a-longs along with performances from Thirty Seconds To Mars and numerous DJ sets.
‘Camp Mars: The Concert Film’ will be released on Sunday (October 9) and will be available to watch on VyRT, an on-demand Internet streaming platform that combines original content and social media, which Leto founded in 2011.
The actor and musician revealed the band were currently at work on the record and said they were “getting closer and closer to being finished”.
Speaking to NME, Leto said the album was “very, very different” to their past output. “I think our last album was maybe a bridge between where we were and where we are now and it’s a very, very different album,” he said.
“I think that’s exciting. Every time you make an album, every time write a song, you have the ability to redefine, reimagine and to experiment and take chances. I’m a big believer that it’s okay to let go of your past and explore new territory, so that’s what we’re doing.”
