Linkin Park will release new album in September

Alt metal band Linkin Park are set to release a new album on 14th September. The fourth studio album from the sextet will be called One Thousand Suns and will be preceded by the lead single The Catalyst on 2nd August.

The album will be produced by the group’s guitarist and MC Mike Shinoda as well as the producer of their last album Minutes To Midnight, Rick Rubin. The LP will be a concept one, recorded in the same studios as their first two albums Hybrid Theory and Meteora but will see them push the sonic boundaries, first explored on Minutes To Midnight.

I’m actually quite excited about this record. I’ve discovered lately that it’s not cool to be over 18 and still like these angsty rockers but fuck it – it can be my guilty pleasure and dirty little secret.

Linkin Park may have competition though. Their album drops the same day as Kanye West’s highly anticipatedGood Ass Job and Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager, the follow-up to Kid Cudi’s critically acclaimedMan On The Moon: The  End Of Day.

So any other angsty teens and closeted adult Linkin Park fans want to join me in anticipation for LP’s new LP?

    Linkin Park – Better Than Green Day. Seriously. I’m not one for checking out their albums in full, but I definitely love the singles that they’ve released. And that Mike Shinoda/X-ecutioners release a while back.

    I’m a tiny bit shocked that this is only their fourth studio album though.

      Yep, I agree. I have all three of their albums but I listen to them in a really half-arsed way, mainly listening to the singles which are all excellent. Yep well, they’ve been around since 2000 and normally leave a 3 to 4 year gap between albums.
