- Thirty Seconds To Mars Premieres New Music Video for “Rescue Me”
- American rock band Thirty Seconds To Mars unveiled the music video for "Rescue Me," featuring a montage of people expressing various emotions in tight close-up shots.
The song appered on the fifth studio album "America", which was released on April 6, 2018. It was written by Jared Leto and Graham Muron.
The album is their first LP in five years, after 2013's "Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams". And it is the first release under Interscope Records after the band's departure from Virgin.
Unfortunately, lead guitar Tomo Miličević, who had worked with the band for 15 years, left the band. He wrote, "I want to just say how lucky I feel to have been able to stand on that stage in front of you all, alongside Jared and Shannon, and to share the moments that we have shared over these last fifteen years together."
- The band said of the song in a statement;
"Rescue Me is a song about pain, a song about empowerment, a song about faith, and a song about freedom.
Freedom from the wreckage of your past. Freedom from the bondage of self. And freedom to embrace all the promises that life has to offer.
It’s also a song about the brutal war so many of us wage against fear, depression and anxiety in the hope that we might, one day, live a life filled with happiness and dreams.
Pain does not discriminate. It can affect us all. In our bodies. Our hearts. Our minds. And often, when that pain is emotional or mental, we are afraid to speak up.
None of us are “ok” all the time. And there shouldn't be a stigma when we aren’t. Both my brother and I have had our own intense personal battles and it has, and continues to be, life changing. I try to remember that just past the darkest days await the brightest and most rewarding moments. And that change is always right around the corner.
I want to thank everyone for being so brave, selfless and vulnerable in this video. The emotion and honesty shared impacted me greatly and I hope it does that same for you all. I am very proud and grateful to have worked with one of my heroes - the master filmmaker and director Mark Romanek. It’s the first time in 13 years I haven’t directed our videos. It was a gift to have him carry the weight so graciously and deliver something so profoundly simple and beautiful.
If you think someone in your life needs help, ask them if they’re ok and make sure they they know you’re there for them. And keep showing up. Help however you can.
If you are hurting, you can get through this. Tell someone you trust. And please make sure you ask for help."
