The guys of Linkin Park have posted a four-minute video featuring footage of the group in the studio recording ‘Burn It Down’
The gents of Linkin Park are giving fans a peek inside the process behind creating their latest album, “Living Things,” which arrives June 26. Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda and the guys just posted a second behind-the-scenes video of the band recording “Burn It Down,” the first single off “Living Things.” The four-minute video, called “LPTV – Buried At Sea (Part 2),” features footage of the group in the studio tracking the song and mixing it into the final product.
Shinoda recently told NME that the band’s inspiration behind “Living Things” is simply people. “We chose the album title ‘Living Things’ because it’s more of a record about people,” Shinoda explained. “It’s more about personal interactions. On the last few records we’ve had an interest in global issues and social issues and those things are still around, there are certainly traces of them, but this record is far more personal.”
He went on to describe the upcoming album as “a very three-dimensional record,” with moments of anger and blustering volumes. With that description, chances are this will be a much heavier album than 2010’s “A Thousand Suns.”
Linkin Park are set to take “Living Things” on the road on the 2012 Honda Civic Tour alongside fellow alternative rock acts Incubus and Mutemath this summer. The tour kicks off on Aug. 11 at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Va., and runs through Sept. 10 in San Diego, Calif. Find a complete list of tour dates, here.
