Linkin Park – Guilty All The Same Source
Linkin Park decided to share a new song from their upcoming untitled album, which features the well known New York rapper Rakim.
Talking about the decision of sharing Guilty All The Same, Mike Shinoda says that:
The reason we went with this single first is that we think it’s a good look into the DNA of the record that we’re putting out this summer. (Rakim)That’s like one of my idols. If you get into the nitty-gritty of his rhyme pattern and the topic in this song, it’s bananas what he is doing. He’s on the some Steve Vai shit vocally.
Mike also said about their new material that they don’t want it to sound like radio music:
A few months ago I was making some demos and writing this stuff and it sounded like something you could play on the radio … I don’t want to make any of that music. ['Guilty'] ended up being this new material. It’s louder; it’s more visceral than probably anything we’ve done recently.
Enjoy the song below!
Also recently the band announced they’ll collaborate with 30 Seconds To Mars for Carnivores Tour. Find more about it here.
Source Julian Casablancas + The Voidz
Some people might know Julian Casablancas as The Strokes’ frontman or from his various collaborations with Lonely Island and even with the well known electronic duo, Daft Punk; but there’s also no secret that Casablancas has a successful solo career.
It seems that the artist decided to release his first album in almost four years, which is credited Julian Casablancas + The Voidz. It seems that the band that plays with Casablancas, named The Voidz is very mysterious and nobody cand tell much about it, also the album’s name is kind of a mystery too.
Enjoy the new album’s trailer below:

John Frusciante and Omar Rodriguez Lopez united their genius talents in order to create a new album together. The project’s name is Kimono Kult and they decided to stream their EP in full (you can listen to it at the bottom of the page). Actually the whole band also consists of Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes, Bosnian Rainbows), instrumentalists Dante White (Dante Vs. Zombies) and Laena Geronimo (Raw Geronimo).
The sound of the band is defined as electro/dub/afro-beat/avant-freak/jazz-like conversations of instrumental ecstasy, and the name of the EP is Hiding In The Light. Also after listening to the songs you’ll realize they are sang in Spanish and Gender Bender explains why they chose this language for their songs:
The Spanish language is so beautiful that it has the right to be approached in any way possible. There is so much left to explore – pronunciation, etc. Because Spanish-speaking singers are strict with so many unspoken rules, I approached my mother language as if I were an alien from outer space. That was the mindset.
Without any further ado I recommend listening to these songs below and prepare yourself for some real experimental music. Enjoy!

It’s official, Linkin Park and 30 Seconds To Mars are going on a tour together. The tour titled Carnivores Tour, will take place in North America in late summer, and they will also be joined by AFI. Check out the press conference here and for purchasing tickets check out the tour’s official website here.
Also, Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park explains the name of the tour as:
Carnivores is a metaphor that is meant to convey an appetite for something visceral and substantive, and I feel that’s exactly the hunger this tour will feed.

Also recently, Linkin Park posted a studio teaser which shares a sample from some of the band’s newest music. Talking about their upcoming music, Mike said that:
As ever, we’re digging deep to craft the best songs that will set the tone for the next step, that will draw a line between what we’re doing and everything else. We can’t wait for you to hear it this summer.

It seems that the guys from Deftones, besides the frontman Chino Moreno, started working on a new album, according to an interview at Melbourne’s Soundwave Festival. Talking about their plans for the album, Chino says that:
We don’t plan on what kind of record we’re going to make…We react to each other – one guy starts playing something then the other guy reacts to it, and the other guys react to that. Next thing we know, we have a song. I think that’s the best, organic way to write music. It’s worked for us over the years.
Unfortunately, this new album is going to be band’s first one without their bassist Chi Cheng, and Chino also says that:
I feel like with his passing, not to get back into the supernatural, he is more with us now then he was in the five years when he was stuck in that sort of in-between space. It’s a little bit of a relief because I know that he’s not suffering. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of him.
I only hope that this new album is going to be as good as the previous ones and the fact that Chino involved in different side projects, like Palms or ††† (Crosses), the artist’s new wave electronic project, won’t change the band’s vibe, and that they will still carry on even without the talent of Chi Cheng.
