Electronic heavy hard rock band Linkin Park will be releasing a new album this summer, according to member Mike Shinoda. The album will be the follow up to 2012′s Living Things (review).
Shinoda states, “All our previous albums were done with a producer at the helm; this album has largely been self-produced.” Also, he comments on how each album sounds different from each other, adding, “…new album is no exception.”
