Thirty Seconds to Mars plans “A Day in the Life of America” film project

ABC/Randy HolmesThirty Seconds to Mars will be spending their Independence Day filming…America. The band has announced a new project called A Day in the Life of America, a film directed by frontman Jared Leto consisting of footage from around the U.S. taken this Fourth of July.

To make A Day in the Life of America, Leto and Thirty Seconds to Mars are sending camera crews to all 50 U.S. states, plus Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico, to film on July 4. They’re also inviting you to submit your own footage for the project.

“It’s an incredibly important time in our country and we are excited for people to film what they feel is important, impactful, challenging or inspiring,” says Leto in a statement. “Whether it’s a single shot, a person, an event, or a story — we want to see your America.”

“Thirty Seconds to Mars is looking forward to you helping us capture America in all its imperfect glory and epic beauty and to celebrate the spirit of this great nation in an unforgettable way,” he adds.

Along with this new project, Thirty Seconds to Mars is also working on their next studio album, the follow-up to 2013’s Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams, which is due out this year. This summer, Leto and company are touring with Muse.
