Linkin Park offer footage of band members working on their new release

The guys of Linkin Park have been teasing fans for months with reports that they’re working on a new album, and now, they’re making good on that promise. Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda and the rest of the alternative rock group will unleash a fresh single, “Burn It Down,” to rock radio on Monday (April 16). The song is off the band’s upcoming, fifth full-length studio album, which is slated to come out this summer. Linkin Park have yet to peg down an official release date.

As fans wait in anticipation to hear the new tune, a trailer for the new project has popped up online. “LP 2K12 Trailer” offers a 20-second look at some behind-the-scenes footage of Linkin Park cranking out tracks in the recording studio, as they work on their upcoming album. Watch the video, here.

What to expect from the new album? Bennington says it’s shaping up to be a more familiar set. “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,” he told Kerring! “This will be more familiar to people than ‘A Thousand Suns’ was, where we were like ‘ …We’re just going to go bonkers.”

He added that the songs are more about relationships and less about politics. “We’ve been writing a lot about relationships. We’re not a political band, we’re a socially minded band,” he said. “We try to look at things that we find in the world that we’d like to see more of, or that we’d like to see less of.” (Photo credit: Anne Erickson.)
