The rock band was taping their ‘MTV Unplugged’ episode, which is set to air in July, when MTV asked them point-blank about the breakup rumors.
“We can neither confirm nor deny these allegations,” guitarist Tomo Milicevic said, laughing. OK – is that a good sign, or a bad sign?
The band has spent the past year promoting their ‘This is War’ album, which has put aside their long-term plans of shooting a video for the album’s next single, ‘Night of the Hunter.’
“I would love to make another video. I think if I made another video, it would kill me, because I’ve been making videos for the past 18 to 20 months,” frontman Jared Leto said with a sigh. “When did we start ‘Kings and Queens’? October? I may have to go check myself in for some time away if I do another video.”
It’s a little sketchy that the band is not denying that they are breaking up. Maybe Leto will return to acting and focus his attention on that? Or maybe they are just taking a break, then reuniting soon. I expect a statement sometime soon in the future.
