LINKIN PARK: 21 New Songs Ready For Follow-Up To "Hybrid Theory"

August 2, 2002

LINKIN PARK have once again opted to utilize the services of producer Don Gilmore (who produced the band's multi-platinum Hybrid Theory release) during the recording sessions for their as-yet-untitled sophomore effort, which is tentatively due in December.

"So I'm sitting in our 'pre-production' studio, and I thought I'd give you a glimpse into our strange-and-often-fun-creative-process," wrote guitarist Brad Delson in the band's online studio journal. "Actually, I was planning on procrastinating writing this until [singer] Mike [Shinoda] 'suggested' I do it before I leave. You see, I'm a master at putting things off until I absolutely have to do them. This could be anything from paying taxes to doing laundry. What does this have to with the studio? I'm not sure."

Delson added, "I can tell you, however, that things are going really well. We're currently working during the day with our producer on pre-production. This means that we've written a number of songs (roughly 21) and now we're fixing them up and narrowing them down so that we can go into the studio and begin recording. I think one of our biggest challenges is putting aside some of the songs we've written. Since each song has something cool about it, it's hard to let any of them go. Maybe we'll just release a double album...just kidding."
