Multi-platinum rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars are debuting a short film, entitled “The Ride,” today on MySpace (see film exclusively on MySpace here.) Shot this past month in Los Angeles, “The Ride” is inspired by the critical mass and crank mob movement, founded with forward thinking and eco-conscious intentions, and celebrates this amazing community of riders on a night time journey downtown LA to Santa Monica. For the production, the band shut down Hollywood blvd, Santa Monica pier and sections of downtown Los Angeles, making this their love letter to the city of angels.
The soundbed for the film is the track, “Kings & Queens,” the lead single off the band’s upcoming album, THIS IS WAR, out the week of Dec. 8th. It’s available now at iTunes.
