Linkin Park 5th album in production!

Linkin Park have been working on a new studio album for two months now, and the album will again be different. The lyrics will be more serious, political and mature. The album will create contrasting opinions but Chester Bennington is saying that's what he wants. It will again be a major shift in style.


Chester Bennington also said "The music is great and well ahead of where we were expecting to be." He also added it will contain a lot of good songs and will be different from a Thousand Suns and will feature less noises than pevious efforts.


So what can we expect? All I know is too expect the unexpected.

Anyone have any ideas on what their new sound could be like?

Update: 22nd March 2012

Chester Bennington has said that the new album will go back to a more familiar LP sound. That it won't sound experimental like A Thousand Suns did.

"With this album, we've incorporated a lot of guitar work with big choruses and the heavier electronic stuff to give it that really big wall of sound feeling without getting too metal. This will be more familiar to people than 'A Thousand Suns' was, where we were like 'Fuck it, we're just going to go bonkers."

Could this become an established LP sound? Chester Bennington believes so.

Could this also sound more familiar to the older albums yet still be on a different wavelength? If so, this could attract more of the old fans back.

The lyrics will be social and personal, therefore being based mainly on relationships. The lyrics will not include politics as some people suggested.

In my opinion, the album will come out late Summer/Autumn, but definitely this year!

I agree with Matthew, they should do a soft rock sound for this new album. It would be a change that little would expect with a lot less synthetic music. A Thousand Suns was a great album for song quality, it has probably two of my top three LP songs on it, but whatever LP does will be fine as long as they are doing it their way.

i reckon your new album should be like leave out all the rest, shadow of the day and new divide with the soft rock sound but, you have experimented enough we know what you can do but hybrid theory and meteora mae you the band you are today and those two albums is how you beccame famous so i think you shoulds go back to your metal sound :)

Most of A Thousand Suns was crap except a few songs u know like iridescent and waiting for the end. Stop playing with your music cuz we fans had to take da crap u made in a thousand suns. You were amazing in Hybrid Theory, Meteora & Minutes to midnight. I dont kno why u had to change your style so much.

I hope it is a combination of HybridTheory/Meteora(Rock and Rap) and Minutes 2 Midnight/A 1000 Suns(Alternative and good singing) because i like the Rock more but i highly enjoyed the alternative nature and good singing voices.


But no matter what i WILL buy it because i have the 4 other ones and i will love LP 4EVA!!!!!!!!!!!!1
