Linkin Park Talk Heavier New Direction in Trailer for ‘The Hunting Party’
If ‘Guilty All the Same’ wasn’t a clue enough, the members of Linkin Park discuss the band’s heavier new direction in a trailer for their upcoming album, ‘The Hunting Party.’
The video finds each of the Linkin Park members sharing bits of info about the upcoming album, beginning with Mike Shinoda, who recalls, “There was a point last year when I was making stuff when I listened to it one day and I just realized that it was wrong. I was estimating something that I liked listening to, not something that I wanted to be making.”
Joe Hahn says that the transition began by just trying to lay down some harder sounds, but evolved over time, while Chester Bennington stated that the single ‘Guilty All the Same’ was the turning point. The vocalist added, “When I heard the opening riffs of ‘Guilty All the Same,’ I hadn’t been that excited in quite a long time.”
Watch the new trailer above and get ready for Linkin Park’s ‘The Hunting Party,’ due on June 17. The single ‘Guilty All the Same’ is currently available at iTunes for those interested in picking it up.
