30 Seconds To Mars re-sign to EMI

By | Published on Thursday 30 April 2009

EMI’s Virgin US division have re-signed LA rockers 30 Seconds To Mars, who count actor Jared Leto among their number, of course.

The deal is interesting because EMI last year sued the band claiming they were in breach of their original recording contract for failing to provide three original albums. The specifics of the new deal between the major and the band are not known, though the lawsuit has been dropped.

Confirming the new deal, EMI’s A&R chief Nick Gatfield told reporters: “We are thrilled to have set aside our differences and signed a new agreement with 30 Seconds To Mars”.
