Jared Leto Says New 30 Seconds to Mars Documentary Slams The Music Industry
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.05.2013



Jared Leto says that his new documentary is an attack on the music industry and, specifically, his former record label. Leto says the 30 Seconds to Mars Documentary, Artifact, came to pass while he and the band were facing a lawsuit from his former label Virgin/EMI over claims of contract breach. The band had argued that the contract was void because California laws negate contracts after seven years. The case was eventually dropped and their 2009 album This Is War was released through EMI.

Speaking with Forbes, Leto said of the band, "We had more success than we ever dreamed...We never expected to get rich, but we certainly didn't expect to be millions of dollars in debt."

Leto said of the music industry, "They've treated audiences as poorly as they've treated artists they've had the upper hand and they've been heavy-handed...Record companies aren't all bad. The idea of having a group of people bring a vision to life is awesome the problem is greed."

The film won the People's Choice documentary award at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and is available now through iTunes.
