Linkin Park continue album sessions


Linkin Park have returned to the studio to continue work on the follow-up to 2014’s The Hunting Party.

The band posted a Facebook picture of frontman Chester Bennington laying down vocal tracks, saying: “Back to work this week.”

They hit the studio late last year and while no further details have been released, in September, the band’s Mike Shinoda hinted their new material could be influenced by hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar.

Shinoda said: “Chester and I were talking the other day about how great his recent two records are. We were specifically talking about the artistry of his records, that I feel is something that’s starting to emerge in hip-hop.”

In November, Stone Temple Pilots confirmed that Bennington had left the band amicably. They recorded the High Rise EP together in 2013 and had been working on an album.
