Living Things is the fifth studio album by the American rock band Linkin Park. It is scheduled for release starting on June 20, 2012. Living Things combines elements from their previous four studio albums to create a new sound. They stated they finally felt they were in “familiar territory” and “comfortable in [their] own skin” after years of experimentation that resulted in their two previous studio albums, Minutes to Midnight and A Thousand Suns.
we have so many different faces that… you can’t just stick us in one part, and that’s what we have been striving for… it goes from insane hip-hop, to punk rock, death metal to folk music… its insane!

In an interview featured in the March 21, 2012 issue of Kerrang! magazine, Bennington stated that the band has returned to more ‘familiar’ territory on their new record, saying “with this [new] album, we’ve incorporated a lot of guitar work with big choruses and the heavier electronic stuff to give it that really big wall of sound feeling without getting too metal. This will be more familiar to people than A Thousand Suns was, where we were like ‘Screw it, we’re just going to go bonkers.” Bennington also said that the new album’s lyrics would be personal and avoid being political, adding “We’ve been writing a lot about relationships.”
