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.
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.
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.
Linkin Park have released a lyric video for “Until It’s Gone,” where the all-important lines of text find their way onto neon signs, handwritten notes and tattoos.
While in the studio recently, Linkin Park received word President Clinton would be visiting their new recycling center in Haiti. Jumping at the opportunity to meet him, Shinoda hopped on a plane to show off the good they’ve been doing.
“The reason we went with this single first is that we think it’s a good look into the DNA of the record that we’re putting out this summer,” Mike Shinoda told Radio.com of the guitar-shredding 6-minute track.
