In an interview with NME, Chester expresses his excitement about playing more songs off of ‘The Hunting Party’ in Linkin Park’s upcoming live shows and also talks about how much he dislikes playing outdoor festivals rather than playing in ‘a small controlled environment’.

In an interview with Blunt dated before ‘The Hunting Party’ was even out yet, Chester Bennington talks about his current state of mind concerning Linkin Park’s music, fans who want them to return to their heavier roots and how THP might satisfy them, and what’s worth fighting for?
“It can be so many different things. Love is worth fighting for, your art is worth fighting for, your voice, your freedom, your life and the lives of others that can’t stand up for themselves – all these things. Some songs are literally a call out to the state of music that we’re in right now. We want something to have the energy that we’re missing, all the way to more socially driven and more politically driven songs.”
Steve Aoki’s official youtube account has uploaded a video featuring backstage and on stage moments of him with Linkin Park. Aoki and the band both played shows at Rock in Rio Lisbon and he joined them on stage while they played ‘A Light That Never Comes’.
Artist Humberto Braga has shared LOADS of behind the scenes photos (49) from the set of Linkin Park’s new music video for ‘Final Masquerade’ which is probably coming out soon since he said yesterday that shooting was a wrap. Check out the set including ALL band members and Rob in the middle ofd the desert kinda reminds me of ‘What I’ve Done’ music vid. Let’s wait and see!
Photos have since been deleted! Boo!
A day late in posting this but as a lot of you may know is that I lost my dear grandfather on Saturday and thus I was not in my right state of mind to work on this website. Anyway, just a heads up, updates might be scarce from now on.
Linkin Park played a surprised set at Vans Warped Tour in Ventura, California. Rumors were flying around all week and finally the festival and band themselves took to Twitter and Instagram to confirm the performance. The set consisted of 7 songs, unusually short you might think but the boys had some awesome guest appearances up their sleeves! They were joined by the members of bands such as Breathe Carolina, The Devil Wears Prada and even a Day To Remember!

Absolute Radio has also uploaded parts of Pete Donaldson’s interview with Chester including one in which he catches a camerawoman after she fainted during the interview! Woah!
Congratulations to Linkin Park for leaving a permanent mark in rock history by taking home Guitar Center’s Rock Walk honor! Here are some pictures and videos from the band’s induction that happened last night in Hollywood:
After that the band took off to Burbank for a special appearance at iHeart Radio Theatre where they held ‘The Hunting Party’s’ release party by performing an intimate show.
