Linkin Park Pay Homage to Public Enemy
Band admit that new album owes a lot Chuck D and co.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 07 Sep 2010
Linkin Park have admitted Public Enemy have strongly influenced their forthcoming album A Thousand Suns.
Vocalist Mike Shinoda, who also co-produced the record, has said that that he wanted the band's fourth album to be "three-dimensional" like his heroes.
"Although [Public Enemy] seemed political, there was a whole lot of other stuff going on in there too. It made me think how three-dimensional I wanted our record to be without imitating them of course, and show where we were at creatively."
Those wanting to hear the results can pick up a copy of A Thousand Suns from Friday, 10 September.
