Linkin Park will return in May with a new album, which will be released through Warner.
The incorrigible scrot-throttlers will release Minutes to Midnight on May 14th, and it will be their third studio album, apparently. DiS was sure they've had a remix album or two - were they not made in a studio?
Here's the band's bassist Dave 'Phoenix' Farrell: "We have put more into the new album than anything we have ever done before." Less, Linkin Park. Try giving it less.
"They really are reinventing themselves," insists producer Rick Rubin. "It doesn't sound like rap-rock, there's very strong songwriting.
"It's very melodic... a progressive record."
A single, 'What I've Done' will be the first track stripped from the album like a rotting piece of doner meat and served up for consumption to a presumably inebriated world populous. It's out digitally on April 2nd, then physically on May 7th. Imagine that sitting in your stomach for a month.
