Linkin Park has released a lyric video for their new song, "Guilty All the Same." The beginning of the tune is very guitar-centric -- there are no lyrics until a minute and a half in. The single is six minutes long and very heavy and in an interview with Music Radar guitarist Brad Delson says, "There’s [going to be] a lot of guitar solos on the [whole new] album!"
Delson says that the band decided to release "Guilty" way ahead of the album -- which doesn't even have a name yet -- because "The timing just felt right. We finished [it] relatively early in the process and 'Guilty All the Same' seems to inform the spirit of the [entire] record."
The band is set to play two European festivals, with more expected to be added, before heading out on a summer tour with Thirty Seconds to Mars , dubbed the Carnivores Tour .
Linkin Park multi-instrumentalist Mike Shinoda tells ABC News Radio that he's excited to tour "because a lot of fans are gonna get to see the band. [There will be] tons of fun stuff going on but as always, it's all about the music and we hope to bring it to the fans."
Shinoda says that there's always lots of interesting stuff being posted on the band's online fan club, LPU -- short for Linkin Park Underground . He tells ABC News Radio, "[Keeping fans updated is] always a focus of the band. We love our fans."
The 25-date U.S. tour is set to kick off in West Palm Beach, FL in early August and continue through late September, with more dates a possibility. Thirty Seconds to Mars and Linkin Park will get opening support from AFI .
