Thirty Seconds to Mars have teased their new album is coming "soon".

The 'Kings and Queen' rock group's frontman Jared Leto shared a new teaser video on his Facebook page on Wednesday evening (22.03.17) hinting that the record is about to drop.

The 'Suicide Squad' actor can be seen with long hair performing their 2013 hit 'Do or Die' in the short clip.

And on the group's Twitter page they shared a video of the band in Tokyo along with the caption, "MARS IS COMING. (sic)"

The 45-year-old rocker-and-actor previously admitted he never expected the group - who released their self-titled debut LP 14 years ago - to still be going strong, but that he is very excited about their upcoming fifth record.

He said: "We are working on our fifth album now, which is incredible. We never thought we would get this far.

"We're almost done with it and it looks like it will be out in 2017."

The 'City of Angels' hitmakers previously teased the new record - the title of which has not yet been revealed - in a video posted to social media.

The brief teaser simply read "Thirty Seconds to Mars / Interscope: 2017" and "Coming 2017". It was accompanied by the hashtag "#MarsIsComing."

The group will release the new album on Interscope after previously being involved in a battle with EMI/Virgin Records when they tried to get out of their contract, eventually leaving the label in 2014.

And after quitting Virgin Records, Jared admitted it was "exciting" to look at their options for releasing their music.

He said at the time: "I don't hate on record companies, I'm just anti-corruption, anti-greed.

"I think record companies can make fair, clear deals with artists and still be really profitable. So, we're looking at our options. We have several labels that want to work with us. They know what we've been through.

"We have been signed to a label since 1998, so for the first time ever we are actually free, and it's exciting. There are limitless options out there.

"Tech options, crowd-funding options, but record companies are still a really great option too, because you have a group of people who believe in music, who help artists bring their dreams to life."
