Not only have 30 Seconds to Mars played Download and released a new video last week, they also hit UK fans with the news they will be returning to do a Tour later this year. They do spoil us!

Just as fans, or The Echelon as they as also known, are getting nostalgic over the end of the massive Into The Wild tour, 30 Seconds to Mars have released the official video to Closer to the Edge, from the hit album This is War, which has footage of all the tour dates.

The video is impressive, in it you learn the band have played in 89 cities, to over 1.3 million fans on just this tour alone.  Flecking were lucky enough to be in the crowd at the Manchester date in February, and we loved every minute of it.

Not bad for a band who, if you mentiond their name a few years back, would have people asking “Who?!”.

The video shows the dedication of both the band, and their fans, even with Jared in a God like stance with the words “Yes this is a cult”. It shows fans singing, rocking out, crying with happines and just staring in pure amazement, demonstrating perfectly the influence this band has.

Flecking has followed 30 Seconds to Mars for over 5 years now, and even we are still blown away by the success and devotion that this band show.

Check out the video here and comment to let us know what you think.

@JaredLeto has also been teasing UK fans on Twitter over the weekend with news of a ‘big announcement’ and Flecking have no shame in admiting we were there, waiting.  Infact, when the news of a tour hit we may have even screamed a little. But yes! 30 Seconds to Mars will be back playing 5 UK dates in November and December.

November 29th – Brighton Centre

November 30th – London O2 Arena

December 1st – Birmingham NIA

December 3rd – Aberdeen
