Linkin Park: game for it

Linkin Park have been locked in the studio working on a new studio album, and it looks like it’s packing a few surprises.

The band announced earlier this year that they were getting cracking on the follow-up to 2012′s Living Things, with Mike Shinoda recently suggesting that we might see it surface by the time they rock up to Download in June.

Now guitarist Brad Delson says that shred-happy LP warriors (erm, are there any of those?) will be very satisfied with the way the new opus is turning out.

“There’s a lot of guitar solos on the album!” he tells Music Radar. “And this is from someone who was quoted early on as saying I hated them. Not that I hated them as a listener; I just don’t want to play any; I shirked guitar solos. Early on, I felt as though the songs we were making aesthetically didn’t want them. This new batch of songs, to me, always want solos. I feel like every song has one.”

Brad also explained why the band decided to drop a new single so soon after announcing that they were in the studio, noting: “We wanted to get music out sooner than later. The timing just felt right with this song. We finished two songs relatively early in the process, and Guilty All The Same seems to inform the spirit of the record. For us, it’s the perfect lead offering to set the tone for the album as a whole.”

Expect that album to land around summer time. In the mean time, catch the rock heavyweights playing their seminal Hybrid Theory debut in full at Download in June.

Austria’s Stormbringer.at recently conducted an interview with AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows and bassist Johnny Christ. You can now watch the chat below.

As previously reported, AVENGED SEVENFOLD is teaming up with online entertainment site Machinima to bring fans brand new original content in the form of a six-episode animated series that will tell the fictional story of the Death Bat, the band’s longtime trademark and mascot. Directed by “Metalocalypse” producer Jon Schnepp, the series will air this fall on Machinima‘s HappyHour channel and will feature music from AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s new album, “Hail To The King”, which is set to arrive on August 27.

Lead singer M. Shadows revealed that the series will go “hand-in-hand” with a new mobile AVENGED SEVENFOLD game that the band has been developing for 18 months. He explained, “Without revealing too much, I will just say that it is an action-adventure game. It has been written and developed by the band and with our friends in Subscience Studios. It’s turning out awesome. We can’t wait to show you more when it’s ready . . . The game and the series will go hand in hand with each other. We hope you enjoy them both, because I know we have had a great time developing them.”

“Hail To The King” is AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s follow-up to 2010’s chart-topping “Nightmare” and the first album by the band to feature no musical contributions from late drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan.

Sullivan, who died in December 2009, did write some of the music that ended up on “Nightmare”. The Pulse Of Radio asked Shadows if his presence was missed on the new disc. “Obviously, you totally miss, like, what he would have brought to the table,” he said. “Like, I’m a hundred percent happy with these songs, but I know he would have had a couple of ideas of cool things to do. Also, he always brings three to four great songs. So on this process when you get to like song six or seven, you’re like, ‘Damn, I really wish we were at song 10, ’cause I’m really happy with these seven songs and Jimmy would have brought three in.’ So that was the big thing, it was just that it took us a lot longer to get where we wanted to get.”

AVENGED SEVENFOLD has also continued its relationship with game publisher Activision by contributing a song to the final pack of downloadable content for the wildly successful game Call Of Duty: Black Ops II.

The final content pack, called Apocalypse, will be available on the Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft on August 27 and contains a new AVENGED track called “Shepherd Of Fire”.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD will begin a fall headlining North American tour on October 3 in Chicago, concluding on October 26 in Las Vegas. Support on the road trip will come from DEFTONES and GHOST.

Slash: Fucking loves video games, mate.

Guns N’ Roses legend Slash and Black Label Society/former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist (and fellow legend) Zakk Wylde are among the names to be featured on a new guitar-based video game that is definitely not like Guitar Hero definitely not at all it’s totally different not even a bit like Guitar Hero.

BandFuse: Rock Legends promises a “pick up-and-play experience” that will “have you rockin’ with your favorite songs in minutes.” Experienced gamers/guitar players will be challenged with gruelling solos, while n00bs can just mash at some buttons and hope for the best. But it definitely isn’t anything like Guitar Hero. Definitely definitely not.

Check out a trailer for the game featuring Slash below…
