Linkin Park Already At Work On A New Album In 2011

After fans had mixed feelings about their 2010 album ‘A Thousand Suns’, Linkin Park is jumping back in the studio with an album that vocalist Chester Bennington promises will be “polarizing.” So you’re telling me that their last one wasn’t?

Despite being not so well received by critics, fans or rock radio: Linkin Park’s last album ‘A Thousand Suns’ performed well commercially moving over a half a million units in about two months. The band is already working on the follow-up as Chester Bennigton told KERRANG!:

“We’ve been working on a new record for the past two months. The music is great and we’re well ahead of where we’re expecting to be. There aren’t a whole lot of noises going on, but there are a lot of good songs. It will probably get a very polarized reaction. Which pleases me. As an artist, I want a reaction.

We’ve learned how to write serious songs and serious lyrics. We’ve learned how to deal with politics, faith and other things. Those are things that can get preachy really quickly, which we don’t want to do. So you need to learn to talk to people and not at people.”

Just what the world needs; Linkin Park’s opinion on Jesus, world hunger, and politics. Can I place my pre-order yet? There is no word on a release date for the band’s untitled fifth studio album. They reworked their latest single ‘Iridescent’ into a shorter version for the ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ soundtrack.  It’s currently #25 on the alternative charts and somewhere below #50 at rock radio, here is the video.
