MTV recently caught up with Linkin Park frontman, Chester Bennington on the set of their new video for “Burn It Down”. The first single off their highly anticipated follow-up album to “A Thousand Suns“.
“Well, we promised our fans that we’d put out records faster, and that’s what we’re doing. We figured out a way to condense our cycle, so to speak, by … continuing to write, trying to keep the creative ball rolling as often as possible…”

Today LP will be headlining KROQ’s Weenie Roast in Irvine, CA. So with that we bring you their latest offering from their album “A Thousand Suns”. This track will also be featured on the soundtrack for “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”.
The video explores how human existence might be affected by the elements of Transformers robots and the threat of the Decepticons. What would it be like to be citizens in a decaying universe? I tried a lot of new things here, and we had a lot of fun shooting it.

As it was just revealed by Mike within the LPU Video Chat, the next single off of A Thousand Suns will be “Burning In The Skies”.
Stay tuned to The Linkin Park Association for more information as it becomes available.
Editorial Note: It should be noted that although Mike has stated that it’s highly likely for BITS to be the next single, that still nothing has been 100% chosen and that there is always the chance the final single could be different. Please treat this information as highly plausible but not totally confirmed at this point.

It’s pretty dope to see Chester on the drums during this song.

This looks pretty crazy, hope the video turns out well. Again in case you forgot it will be premiering tomorrow.
Here’s what Mr. Hahn had to say.
As some of you know, our next video is premiering this week. The clip is an experiment in making the most digital version of ourselves in the spirit of the visual pallette of A Thousand Suns. If you have been following our visuals throughout this album, this is the next step in our journey. I wanted to push ourselves so far down the digital path that it eventually felt spiritual. As we live our lives in the digital noise of today, we can find our center of humanity in the midst of the chaos. This is my illustration of that. I hope you enjoy this clip as we do. Here are some still shots to give you a sneak peak.
