Info for Living Things

LIVING THINGS is a personal album, centered on human emotions and relationships implied by the title. It is informed by and built upon all previous Linkin Park albums, while still pushing the band’s sound into new territory. It’s spirited, energetic, daring and unafraid to hybridize the past, present and future. It’s absolute proof to a radical theory six musicians have devoted their lives to testing.

Ever since the early-aughts super-combo of Hybrid Theory and Meteora, Linkin Park has been doing something popular artists just don’t do: going off-menu. Chester Bennington, Rob Bourdon, Brad Delson, Dave ‘Phoenix’ Farrell, Joe Hahn and Mike Shinoda collectively came to the hard decision to deviate from the foundation of their success in search of fresh new sounds and ideas. On the records that followed, Minutes to Midnight and A Thousand Suns, LP made the courageous leap into the unknown.

The learning curve was arduous, but a necessary and welcome challenge for the band. 'Hybrid Theory' isn’t just the title of the first album, but a career mission statement. From day one, Linkin Park built the band upon the premise of fusing all of their favorite styles of music—as disparate as they might be—into one signature sound. Fast-forward 12 years to LIVING THINGS and the same six players have not only developed new tools to make that philosophy a reality, but they’re finally comfortable embracing—and coalescing—every aspect of their career.

'[W]hile they've spiffed up their sound for the dance floor, the band found some of its greatest inspiration in pop-wise hip-hop...' (Rolling Stone)

It remains to decide the title. Rejected Xero, the four decided to become Hybrid Theory. Due to the large concert activity and spectacular show at the club "Whiskey", this name becomes known in Los Angeles. Not just anybody, but once Warner Brothers Records musicians to offer a contract. But because of legal discrepancies will soon have to abandon the Hybrid Theory. Title goes to a debut album, which the Quartet will soon begin recording in a Hollywood studio NRG Recordings, and the group itself becomes a Linkin Park (distorted Lincoln Park - on behalf of certain areas in Los Angeles).

Over the first album "Hybrid Theory" (released in October 2000.) Together with a group working Dust Brothers, John Hornbeck (Ian Hornbeck), Scott Koziol (Scott Koziol) and producer Don Gilmore (Don Gilmore) (in charge of the sound of Pearl Jam and Eve 6). Blast, an eclectic mix of styles - metal, hip-hop, industrial, pop - striking even in comparison with Korn and Limp Bizkit, the pioneers of such experiments. The single "One Step Closer" got mad airplay on the radio, so in November 2000, the album debuted in the American Top 20.

Their first release brings the team and the first crop of awards, among which immediately turns Grammy. At the award ceremony in 2002 the song "Crawling" won top musical trophy in the category "best performance in the genre of hard rock".

Major music publications of the world reacted to the emergence of "Hybrid Theory" honeyed reviews. English monthly "Q Magazine" included the album in the list of "100 greatest albums of all time. "Absolutely incredible debut" - wrote the columnist "Melody Maker". The Group does not know the all-clear from the concert invitations, toured half the world, not bypassing the leading American and European rock festivals, including the most ambitious of the hardest rides - Ozzfest. The game is worth the candle - the general circulation of the album to date has passed for 15 million.

In early January 2002 the band issued a long awaited collection of videos in VHS and DVD. Six of video cassette Linkin Park, and the DVD also includes interviews, a selection of live shots and two live tracks. And at the end of the month they go to great American Projekt Revolution Tour, which collect the Cypress Hill and nu-metal band Adema.

In July 2002, Linkin Park once again drew attention to his already hot release and released CD "Reanimation", a collection of remixes of tracks by "Hybrid Theory". Mike Shinoda invited for "remiksatsii" the best hip-hop producers - Kutmasta Kurt, Alchemist, Cheapshot, X-ecutioners, Evidence and Jewbacca. Among the vocalists were noted Jonathan Davis (Jonathan Davis; frontman of Korn), Aaron Lewis (Aaron Lewis; Staind), indie-rappers Aceyalone, Rasco, Planet Asia, and Chali 2na.

In late 2002, it is time to work on something new. Noven'ke not long in coming and already in March 2003, fans got a new album by Linkin Park. The second full-length album, titled Linkin Park "Meteora". His appearance in the world he is obliged to the many unforgettable experiences, which gave the group two years of almost continuous touring. Musicians still talk with admiration of the famous Greek monastery, built by fugitive Christian monks on the tops of pinnacle. "The name" Meteora "probably has to do with music, and reflects the grandeur and beauty of these magnificent monuments that have become for us an invaluable source of inspiration", - said Brad Delson.

In support of the release group held an extensive summer tour, having engaged in a super-tour «Summer Sanitarium Tour», where she performed in obnoy holder with Metallica and Limp Bizkit.

The principle of "all new - it is well forgotten old" as applied to music today can be modified. Everything is new - it is not necessarily well-forgotten, but certainly good mix of old. Properly mixing the ingredients, you can create even a bomb. What we are witnessing the example =) (Source: Linkin Park)
