Multi-platinum rock band Thirty Seconds To Mars single “This Is War” reaches #1 on the alternative radio airplay charts this week, after an 8-week run at #2. This is the band’s second consecutive #1 single from their 3rd studio album This Is War (EMI’s Virgin Records) which was released in December, 2009. The album’s first single “Kings & Queens” spent three weeks at #1 in January. Thirty Seconds To Mars now has three #1 songs and four top 5 hits at the format. The platinum selling A Beautiful Lie’s “From Yesterday” reached #1 in 2007 and “The Kill” peaked at #3 in 2006 before becoming the first song in alternative radio history to be retired from the Billboard chart after a 52-week run. “The Kill” was named the #1 Alternative song of the last decade by AOL Radio listeners. Their new single “Closer To The Edge” is already climbing the airplay charts across Europe and will impact U.S. radio in August.
