Death Cab Singer Slams 30 Seconds To Mars

Death Cab For Cutie

Death Cab For Cutie front man Ben Gibbard said in a recent interview that he thinks Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars should stick to acting because he's "acting the part" right now in his band.


Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard and Nick Harmer said in a recent interview that they think Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars should stick to acting because he's "acting the part" right now in his band.


"Not to throw anyone under the bus, but Jared Leto and his band 30 Seconds to Mars -- he's acting the part," Harmer said in an interview with website the Big Takeover.


"He's a professional actor in music; so there's no way to feel any sincerity about his position as a musician," says frontman Gibbard.  "Because he makes a living playing characters -- so why wouldn't he be able to take a step forward? Then you're also acting what you think a rock star should act like."


"People embrace that and they put him on posters and they're a wildly popular band with some people," Harmer continues. "And they just look at that and think 'Oh, that's what rock stars do: they wear eyeliner.' I don't know, it's just a weird thing to me."


Death Cab For Cutie have recently unveiled the Ross Ching directed video for "Little Bribes," a song from their recent EP, The Open Door as well as announcing dates for a July tour, listed below:


JULY
3       San Diego, CA       Belly Up Tavern
5       Los Angeles, CA     Hollywood Bowl (w/Los Angeles Philharmonic)
11      Berkeley, CA        Greek Theatre
12      Reno, NV            Grand Sierra Resort & Casino
13      Salt Lake City, UT  Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre
14      Morrison, CO        Red Rocks Amphitheatre
16      Vancouver, BC       Pacific Coliseum
17      Troutdale, OR       Edgefield Amphitheatre
18      Redmond, WA         Marymoor Park
19      Redmond, WA         Marymoor Park
