    Linkin Park's Chester Bennington talks about A Thousand Suns, the US/Canada Tour beginning in January, adding When They Come For Me to the set-list in the upcoming tour where he will be playing percussion & singing for the song, the VMA performance, what songs mean the most to him from A Thousand Suns and much more in this really open, in-depth interview with Streetdate. Check out the two video clips below.


    Also, check out an interview with Mike on Ripitup, where he discusses the speeches on A Thousand Suns, swearing on the album and many other things.

    “Back then if you had asked us about the swearing – and in fact people did ask us if there would ever be swearing on a Linkin Park record – Chester and I would say, ‘Sure, maybe – if it feels like the right time’. There were moments for me on my Fort Minor record when it felt like the right thing to say and there were songs on our last record Minutes To Midnight where there was some swearing. So it’s not a big deal to us when it feels right.”

    Now that the band is actually more open during interviews, the incentive to watch these has gone up so much.

    On that note, this was a very insightful and entertaining interview. Indeed, the time went by fast.

    One of my favorite interviews. Mike has been better but Chester is by far the best to listen to. He's much more open.

    Seconded. The mindset they're in now is a beautiful place.

    I can't wait for the next record. I know ATS just came out, but it seems like they're in a pure place now.

    Yeah it's incredible that The Messenger was written for his kids/his oldest son as his way of letting go and letting his son off into the world. Chester's one hell of a dad.
