If you haven't yet guess where this is going, or haven't heard the news, Linkin Park is close to putting out their 5th studio album, Living Things. In an interview, lead singer Chester Bennington said that they were returning to familiar ground in this album and were quoted as saying "with this album, we've incorporated a lot of guitar work with big choruses and the heavier electronic stuff to give it that really big wall of sound feeling without getting too metal. This will be more familiar to people than 'A Thousand Suns' was, where we were like 'Fuck it, we're just going to go bonkers.'" So that should give some fans some hope. I know I'm kind of excited. They're also trying to avoid writing political lyrics, saying that they are writing a lot about relationships. Release date for Living Things is slated for June 26, just over a month away. I'm not really worried about it selling out, so I won't pre-order it, I think if it becomes popular, it will after its gotten more word of mouth around. I know I'll pick it up and share my thoughts of it with you, my sparse crew of readers. Mostly, cuz writing is a good outlet.
So, in keeping with this post's theme, the SOTD will be a song by Linkin Park. Only, it won't be anything off of any of their previous albums. That's right, like it or not, the song of the day is Burn It Down, their recent single and a track off the new album, Living Things. Enjoy, cuz its really not too bad.
