Linkin Park ‘Burn It Down’ in 2012 TNT NBA Playoffs Promo Video

Linkin Park spark excitement for TNT’s coverage of this year’s NBA playoffs with their song ‘Burn It Down’ in a new promo that also features a sneak peek at the upcoming music video for the track.

It’s been a good week for Linkin Park fans: Not only did they get a new song, the skinny on the new album ‘Living Things’ and dates for the band’s upcoming tour with Incubus — now they get more of Linkin Park in the new promo for TNT’s NBA playoff coverage.

The clips of the music video appears to be rather straightforward as far as LP videos go: Gone are the high-tech CGI effects and Transformers of videos past, and in their place is simply a band, some lights and a fog machine. Perhaps the video is a symbolic representation of the back to basics approach the band employed on ‘Living Things.’ “The record gets back to our roots and it’s captured a feeling that we haven’t gone after in many years,” co-frontman Mike Shinoda told NME recently.

The promo clip splices footage of the band with shots of such NBA players as Amare Stoudemire, Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose and LeBron James delivering inspirational words leading up to the 2012 playoffs.

‘Living Things’ hits stores on June 26 and is the follow-up to Linkin Park’s 2010 multi-concept album ‘A Thousand Suns.’ The lead single ‘Burn It Down’ is available for download now. Check out our review of the tune here.
