Big Linkin Park News Coming Next Month: 'We Have Something Very Exciting for the Fans'
While recently discussing a series of environmental issues and the group's involvement with the Urgency Network, Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda also touched on the subject of the current state of affairs among the LP ranks. As the vocalist told Huffington Post, band is seemingly working on something big, but couldn't reveal too much details. "We're working on a new album, we're about to go on a tour in Asia, and I can't give you too many details about what we have going on, but I think in the next month, we have something very exciting for fans and I'm only allowed to pique your interest," he said. "That's all I'm allowed to say," the singer continued. "I promise something very exciting for Linkin Park fans in the next month." Shinoda was also asked to share a word of advice for the young bands, underlining that the help of others is not something to rely on in the early days. "I always tell new artists that the key to their success as they're beginning is to not worry about other people helping them out," he said. "It's really that they have the power to get their music to the next step completely on their own at this point in time, whether it's talking about making the music, recording the music, playing the music live or just spreading the word about the music, there are so many tools out there, especially online, for people to just make amazing stuff and they don't really need anybody's help." The vocalist explained further, "That's not a knock against the label, I think the label can be really useful once you've already established something but don't look to some label or some producer or some deal to get you to the next step, especially if you're doing it just to get famous. I never related to that. "To me, it's always been about making great art and being able to stand behind that at the end of the day," Shinoda concluded. The latest Linkin Park record, "Living Things," dropped in June 2012 as the fifth effort in the group's catalogue. With 223,000 copies sold in the US within the first week, it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
