Rock Doc Alert!
ARTIFACT, the rock doc about the grueling struggle between actor/singer Jared Leto's beloved band Thirty Seconds to Mars and their record label, will be released across all leading VOD platforms on December 3, 2013.
Dec 3 Update: You can now find ARTIFACT on iTunes as well as find more info at FilmBuff.com.
The film shines its spotlight on the modern music business, highlighting the battle between art and commerce.
It follows the band as it embarked on a relentless lawsuit with record label Virgin/EMI and as it wrote songs for the album This Is War.
Opening up his life for the camera during months of excruciating pressures, Leto revealed the struggles his band must face over questions of art, money and integrity.
"I hope that artists and audiences watch this film and get a greater understanding of how things really work in the record industry, because understanding is the beginning of change. And whether they like it or not, change is coming," said Jared Leto. "We battled a massive record corporation, challenged an entire industry, fought for our creative lives, and it was worth every single second. We put everything we had worked so hard for on the line. It was life or death. It was war."
We love that Leto was in the trenches for his music. We love him as Jared Leto of TSTM.
Beginning December 3, 2013, the film will be available on all leading broadband Video On Demand platforms including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, Xbox Video, Sony Playstation, Cinemanow and Vudu.
