  1. Today Rolling Stone published a very insightful article on the new Grey Daze album as well as Chester's final years. The band says the project was started in early 2017 when they picked 4 songs to recut and sent guitarist Cristin Davis into the studio to work on them. They were planning on sending the producer out on Linkin Park's North American Tour so Chester could track his vocals. Talinda's only request when Sean decided to continue the project after Chester passed away was that he kept his voice intact.


    Talinda says that giving the project her blessing was easy because she trusts Dowdell implicitly, and she knew what Grey Daze meant to Chester. “He wanted to do Grey Daze again because the music was awesome, he loved it back then, and he was excited to be able to create,” she says. “Doing it now that he had all this experience under his belt — he had accomplished so much and come so far since then — he was excited about it. I can hear him now. He’s like, ‘Fuck yeah!'”


    The album, now confirmed to be titled Amends, is coming out on April 10th. Confirmed songs are 'What's In The Eye', 'Sickness' (with Page Hamilton of Helmet), 'She Shines' (with Head of Korn), 'Soul Song' (with Chester's son Jaime), 'Morei Sky', 'Just Like Heroin (A Little Down)' and 'B12.' Some proceeds from sales of Amends will benefit Talinda's 320 Changes Direction and other portions of the proceeds have been allocated for Chester's kids.


    If the Grey Daze album gets a good response — and both Dowdell and Talinda, independently of each other, say that they hope Linkin Park fans will be open-minded enough to give the music a chance — Dowdell says there’s enough material for one or two additional Grey Daze releases. “Depending on how this is received — and so far, the music we have put out has been received quite well — I think fans will get a second record out of it,” he says.

    'Sickness,' the second single from the album, should be coming on February 5th according to a press release. Album artwork can be seen here.

  2. Here's something cool: Howard Min, an LA-based photographer and film-maker, has shared on his Instagram three pictures from a photoshoot he did with Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn in 1998 at the LA River. "One of my first ever photoshoots was with @mrjoehahn and @m_shinoda of @linkinpark . Circa 1998." Replying to a follower, he stated, "i met mike shinonda a handful of times - he was a fun, chill guy. joe was a very good friend since the 7th grade :)"




    Back in 1998 the duo was performing with Xero / Xero 818. Joe worked for the Urban Network Magazine as Lee Cadena's assistant and Xero contributed with artwork and three original tracks for the magazine's Rapology CDs called 'Closing', 'Drop' and 'Fiends'. 'Drop' was credited solely to Mike and Joe under the names Kenji and Artofficial respectively. Mike worked with Styles Of Beyond by creating their original logo and artwork for the group's debut album for which he also produced a version of 'Marco Polo' that was eventually left out of the album. Mike can actually be heard laughing on SOB's exclusive track for Rapology 12, 'Drop'.


    That year Xero also had 'Rhinestone' featured on a Zomba! Music sampler which eventually found its way to the producers of The Crow: Stairway To Heaven. This was the first soundtrack appearance by the band!


    In December 1998, they played their final show with original vocalist Mark Wakefield. The following year Chester Bennington would join the group and they would change their name to Hybrid Theory, later Linkin Park.

  3. Earlier today, Convolk, a rapper from Oakland, CA with a little over 60K followers on SoundCloud, announced through Twitter he is working with Linkin Park. A few hours later, the tweet was removed. Check a screenshot below, courtesy of Reddit user mennog9.




    There has been no confirmation from Linkin Park's camp at this time if they are actually working together. Let's keep in mind Mike and Brad have been working with other artists as songwriters and producers for the last couple years, so it's possible this is what's happening here.


    Mike has recently worked on "Fine" (solo single), "Grand Paradise (Mike Shinoda Mix)" by Foxing, "Clockwatch" by AmirSaysNothing and "Me" by Kitten. On Instagram, he said more tracks are on the way. Earlier this month, AmirSaysNothing announced a second collaboration would be released on February 23rd as part of his new album.

  4. Going through our files we've found a recording previously unlisted in our live guide. It's an audio of Linkin Park's performance at the Provinssirock festival in 2008. The first two songs weren't recorded, but all the other songs are there. In the taper's channel there are videos of Given Up and Hands Held High and the audio sounds similar, so it's possible this audio was actually ripped from a video recording.

  5. In case anyone haven't seen it yet, a Spotify employee has shared a recording of One More Light performed by Brad and Chester at the Spotify Headquarters in New York City on May 16, 2017. It's a vertical video and it isn't the full song, but it's the longest recording to surface from the show. The original video is available for download here (mp4 / 516 MB).

     Oh I hadnt realised its the same guy who leaked What Are You Worth :P 

    He posted a "lossless" version of What Are You Worth which turned out to be fake. His post dates from about a month after the mp3 version was posted.

  7. LinkinPark:br shared with us the original file of their recording of the KROQ HD Sound Space webcast from last year, so here it is in case anyone is interested. The show ends at 43:42 and then restarts after that. It repeats up to the intro of Ghosts.

  8. Earlier this year we've posted about a collaboration between AmirSaysNothing and Mike Shinoda recorded back in February. While we still don't know its title, Amir has finally announced a release date for the track via Instagram stories. The new single is coming on January 2nd, 2020.




    Update: The song is called 'Clockwatch.' Mike's role was producer. A preview was posted on Amir's Instagram stories. Visit our Linkinpedia page for more information.


    Update 2 (01/06/20): Mike Shinoda produced a second track for AmirSaysNothing. A music video for the song was directed by Dylan Park. It will be included in his debut album coming February 23, 2020. More details will be announced soon.

    The tapes that you're talking about contain the footage of a show from 2000, right? Or before? If it's 2.5 hours of footage, maybe they played some demos or something because only songs from HT would be too few for a show that long. Which songs we know are included there?

    The footage was filmed for a web series called Lockout which you can watch in his YouTube channel. In the series there are clips of Esaul, Rhinestone and Slip as well as Joe doing scratches, an interview with the band, an interview with Jeff Blue where he plays a CD of Hybrid Theory demos and some footage of the band outside the building. All of that should account for the 2 hours of footage he claims to have. I think we never got confirmation of how many songs he filmed, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's just those three.

  10. Disturbed has released a music video for their new single 'Hold On To Memories' which takes fans down memory lane with photos and videos from the band's extensive career. They took the chance to pay tribute to some musicians who were part of their history and unfortunately are no longer among us such as Chester Bennington (Linkin Park), Chris Cornell (Soundgarden), Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots), Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul (Pantera) and The Rev (Avenged Sevenfold). There's some never seen before footage of Chester performing 'Walk' on stage with Disturbed at various shows on Ozzfest 2001.

    I remember from some interviews it was Esaul for sure that they have sent for the audition. Havent Heard of other titles i think but for sure it was not only one song.

    i would love to hear the audition tape Chester has recorded, like the very raw version. 

    There was a Kerrang! article from 2001 where they mentioned early versions of A Place For My Head and Forgotten being in the audition tape. LPAssociation had in their gallery scans of a special edition of Kerrang! with various articles they wrote about Linkin Park over 10 years (or was it 15?). This article was included. Not sure if it's still there.

    Would it be very illegal to ask someone to share the 99 problems/1step klosr mashup? 😁




    He made other Linkin Park/Jay-Z mashups if you want to check them on his website.

    The links on the main post are still working in case you want to download LPCatalog's CD in FLAC. But it's likely mp3 sourced.
