Linkin Park Recording New Album
So what changed for Linkin Park, who had previously released only three albums in a 10-year period? They're now writing and recording on the road. "Mike [Shinoda] and I are out there with our studios – technology, thank God, has gotten to the point when what used to be three refrigerator-sized racks of equipment and a full board the size of a king bed can now fit in my backpack – and we're working on new music as we're driving in the car to a venue or in our hotel room, and when we come home, everybody works in their homes," he said. "So we've kind of got this groove down to the point we're kind of having our cake and eating it too."
Bennington said the plan is now to have a new Linkin Park record out every 18 months. "That would be [expletive] awesome," Bennington said, pointing to shorter touring cycles to make that happen. "Touring for two years is excruciating. When we would tour for two years even the most resilient person in the band, at the end of that, was [expletive] miserable." more on this story
