For a band named 30 Seconds to Mars the next step was all too logical, they have now launched their new single into space. The band's single "Up in the Air" was launched into orbit on Friday morning and will eventually reach the International Space Station. The very first copy of the single will be part of a SpaceX cargo mission carrying over 1,200 pounds of scientific equipment and other gear needed to aid astronauts within the ISS. ‘Up in the Air’ is the first single from 30 Seconds to Mars’ yet to be titled fourth album, which will be released sometime this year.
The group is no stranger to doing things differently as they already set a Guiness World Record for Most Shows Played During a Single Album Cycle, racking up a total of 311 shows in nearly 60 countries on six continents over a period of two years while supporting their 2009 disc, ‘This Is War.’
'Up in the Air' will see an Earthly release of March 19th.
