LINKIN PARK singer Chester Bennington offered an update on the progress of the band's next album. In a video message posted on LINKIN PARK's YouTube channel, Chester said: "I've been working really hard on some vocals for the last couple of months. And we've done some really great stuff in here. The songs are amazing. I'm really proud of what we've accomplished in the studio so far. We've got a lot of great material that I hope challenges our fanbase as well as inspires them as much as it has us. And so I'm really looking forward to you guys hearing the stuff. It's, like, super, super exciting."LINKIN PARK singer Mike Shinoda recently said that the biggest challenge of recording this new disc was that "we approached the process differently." LINKIN PARK guitarist Brad Delson added: "There's a certain amount of experimentation and failure, essentially trial and error that's baked into this process. We've made so many records and we clearly know how to make a record and we definitely didn't take the easy way out this time." Delson continued: "The songs are shaping up so well, we just want them to be as phenomenal when we share them with you… as we imagine them in our heads." Shinoda and Delson also revealed that LINKIN PARK has worked with outside songwriters on the new album, with Delson saying: "As much as we know how to approach songwriting, everybody does it differently so being able to like sit with someone and kind of pour ourselves into their process has been really exciting." The yet-to-be-titled new LINKIN PARK album does not yet have a release date, but will follow up 2014's "The Hunting Party".
