30 Seconds to Mars ''sacrifice tofu'' before their shows because they are now vegan so would feel uncomfortable ''sacrificing goats''.
30 Seconds to Mars "sacrifice tofu" before their shows.
The rockers insist their vegan diets don't lend themselves too well to a rock 'n' roll lifestyle, so they often have to improvise when performing pre-performance rituals.
Frontman Jared Leto joked: "Well there was a time when we used to sacrifice goats but then we all became vegans so we've been sacrificing tofu before the shows!"
The group - also consisting of Jared's brother, drummer Shannon Leto, and guitarist Tomislav Milicevic - also claimed to enjoy relaxing mud baths before they go on stage.
Jared added in an interview with MySpace music: "Shannon introduced us to the pleasures of a mud bath. He carries the mud with him from a very special site in Mexico, which is heavy."
Jared also said the group felt they had reached a "milestone" when they played London's Wembley Arena recently.
He added: "We played Wembley - insane. Kind of a milestone. Even in the States you hear about Wembley Arena, as a kid you heard about that for years.pretty great to play there."
