Next weekend,  30 Seconds to Mars'  2012 documentary  Artifact  will get it's U.S. television premiere.  Artifact  premieres simultaneously on VH1 and Palladia on Saturday, April 26 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.

The film chronicles the band's legal struggle with its record label, Virgin/EMI, which filed suit for breach of contract against the band in 2008. In the lawsuit, the label demanded $30 million in damages from the band, which it said was still under contract with Virgin/EMI despite an ongoing royalties dispute.

Singer  Jared Leto  directed the film and in an interview with  Yahoo Canada , says that his reaction to the amount of money in the legal documents was outrage. "Your jaw kinda hits the floor, [and] the kid in you is ready to throw a punch," he says.

The documentary won awards at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Gotham Independent Film Awards.
