Jared Leto has been hitchhiking across the country to promote the next Thirty Seconds to Mars album titled America.


He stopped in Austin, Texas on Wednesday and gave an impromptu  performance in front of the iconic "I Love You So Much" wall at Jo's Coffee on South Congress.


Word spread quickly and fans came to see Leto who brought a small choir and a guitarist with him. They performed a couple of songs off the new album and gave away tickets to the upcoming tour. 

Leto has been stopping in a handful of cities as he treks across the country. The 46-year-old also stopped in Fort Worth at the Texas Motor Speedway, checked out the Skydeck in Chicago, and visited the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.


The album will be released on Friday and Thirty Seconds to Mars will be touring across the country in a more traditional way.

Im going to hitchhike, among other things, across the country from New York City to Los Angeles. I may jump on a donkey in the Grand Canyon or take a hot air balloon. I got the gear. I got the gear.
