Before you go and think anything crazy, no, 30 Seconds to Mars is NOT declaring war against Bioware’s newest RPG Dragon Age: Origins. However, their new song This is War, which is off their new album that drops December 9, is the headlining song to the soundtrack. A new trailer featuring the song has been released, and it was co produced by lead singer Jared Leto. Leto is an anomaly of sorts, an actor that successfully pursued a career in music. Think that I am lying? Check out this Bruce Willis classic, or maybe Keanu Reeves musical vision…
“We always like to push the envelope in the entertainment and media space and debuting our title track in a game of this caliber is a great way to communicate our music to fans around the world,” said Jared Leto, lead singer of Thirty Seconds to Mars. “We’ve come a long way from having to rely solely on radio to approach and engage music fans, and Dragon Age: Origins is the perfect game to do this with.”
30 Seconds to Mars is a band that is known for its visually inspired/spectacular, cinematic music videos, and to see their music paired up with the breath taking footage from Dragon Age: Origins just fits. Although many may think of 30 Seconds to Mars as a band riding a fad, even me at one point, I really think that they have found their niche, guyliner aside. Check out the trailer after the break.
