x: What did the members of your band think, Chester, when you talked them about this?
It’s always dangerous to talk about this (new music) prematurely. We actually made this mistake when we did Minutes To Midnight like a couple 3 records ago. We were done like a handful song that’s really heavy, we in fact played one of them in the show in Japan, and they were like: “Oh my god! The new Linkin Park record is gonna be so heavy!”, and then at the end of the day the song doesn’t make to the cut to one of those songs at all.
Fuckin’ FlawlessShinoda being fuckin’ flawless to a fan.
