Jared Leto’s pet band Thirty Seconds to Mars have begun to tease their first new music for four years.
A new single, title ‘Walk on Water’ will reportedly make it’s debut on August 27, during the MTV Video Music Awards, per NME.
The band first began to tease their return back in June, posting a special video on their official Twitter page.

To accompany the announcement of their new single, 30StM have also posted a new video today, a short, self-aware skit, which saw them addressing fans’ issues with the long wait for new music, with work on the new album being rumoured to have started as far back as August 2016.
The video shows the trio in a meeting with a record label executive, who has some choice words for Leto and co., in regards to their lack of progress and new music.
Leto himself has discussed the new album at length, too, thanking fans for their patience, and romising an album later this year.
“After four long years, hundreds of days, thousands of hours, gazillions of seconds, we have finally managed to finish a single fucking song. Whoever thought ‘soon’ would actually be here ‘now’?
“We can’t wait to get back on the road and we couldn’t be more proud to share with you the first first single off of our new album. And yes, we have been working on it for four years. The last time we put an album out, there were no self driving cars, no fidget spinners, President Trump was still that guy on The Apprentice and Jon Snow hadn’t even died yet. #SpoilerAlert”
Thirty Seconds to Mars are currently on a US tour with PVRIS and Muse, with no future tour dates announced as of yet.
