Linkin Park have opened up about their forthcoming release, saying that it may be their heaviest offering to date. Speaking with Rolling Stone, Mike Shinoda said that they decided to up the ante after he notice too many "emo" sounds coming from the band.

"It needed to be visceral," he began.

"We need to weed out a lot of the soft, emo kind of approach to our music, and we need to weed out anything that feels aggressive for aggressive's sake. We're not 18-year-old kids making a loud record - we're 37-year-old adults making a loud record. And what makes a 37-year-old angry is different than what made us angry back in the day."

He adds that the new album, titled The Hunting Party, was largely written to fill a void that Shinoda perceives in rock music today:

"I was trying to find something to listen to one day, and it wasn't there. And it kind of pissed me off. I like indie music. I like indie pop. But at a certain point, I feel like that box had been checked and checked again."

The Hunting Party is due July 17.
