Shinoda did not need nearly that much time to fire back, taking to his namesake website last night to unleash a rant about the whole situation, easily as critical of the media as he is of the Scottish thorns in his side.
If you find it hard to keep up with the latest musician beef, you are not alone. It seems CHVRCHES, the polite and eloquent Scottish electro-pop trio, have fallen behind as well.
Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda is a self-aware guy. He knows where rock music — and his band’s brand of rock music — stand in today’s pop culture landscape, and he knows that 2014 isn’t the best climate for them to re-emerge with a new album.
For the first music video from their upcoming new album The Hunting Party, Linkin Park chose to get a little deep.
Featuring System Of A Down guitarist Daron Malakian, “Rebellion” is even faster than “Guilty All The Same.” And that’s saying something.
Linkin Park latest track, “Wastelands” off their upcoming album The Hunting Party (due June 17) boasts Brad Delson’s liberal use of heavy riffs and Mike Shinoda’s return to rapping.
In preparation for the album’s June 17 street date, Linkin Park have released an extended trailer with footage shot during the album’s recording sessions.
