Linkin Park er klare med studioalbum #6! Det har fått navnet The Hunting Party (se bilde for artwork) og slippes 13 juni 2014. Første single "Guilty All The Same feat. Rakim" kom tidligere i vinter - en 6 minutters hardtslående og høylydt rockelåt, som du kan høre her:
Få band de siste 15 årene kan skilte med større innflytelse og popularitet enn Linkin Park. Siden brakdebuten med "Hybrid Theory" i 2000 har de solgt over 60 millioner album, vunnet 2 grammypriser, og turnert verden over. På bandets tre siste album har soundet gradvis beveget seg vekk fra nu-metal/rap metal og mot elekronika og indierock, men på "The Huunting Party" har bandet igjen funnet frem gitarene og laget det de selv beskriver som et album for å "imponere deres indre tenåring":
"There’s so much music out there; there’s so much stuff that sounds like Haim or CHVRCHES or Vampire Weekend that I’m full. The thing I’m hungry for is not that. I turn on the rock station in L.A. and it sounds like Disney commercial music. And I’m confused by that. The dude from Foster the People was literally a jingle writer. No disrespect, but for me to make that stuff was kind of out of the question. I stepped back and said, “What’s the thing I want to hear that nobody else is making, and what’s the thing that we are uniquely positioned to make?” We threw out our old demos, and I talked to the guys and basically asked them to get in touch with who their 15-year-old self was. Not to make songs for 15-year-olds out there now—there are a lot of people out there who’ll make music because it’ll be popular with teenagers, but that’s not what we’re doing. I told our guitarist Brad, “If the kid you were at 15 heard what you made today, would he be proud of you? Or would he say, ‘That guy’s kind of a pussy.’?” Because he was listening to fucking Metallica and heavier at that point. I said, “Write a song that’ll make that kid play guitar.” So that’s what we ended up doing. We wanted to impress our inner teenager.
