Linkin Park Drummer Injures His Back Recording New Album
Linkin Park’s drummer injured his back while recording their upcoming sixth studio album The Hunting Party.
The band revealed that Rob Bourdon spent a week playing the drums for ten hours a day during sessions, and received treatment as a result of the strain.
Linkin Park’s main songwriter Mike Shinoda told Q : “Rob was killing himself. He played 10 hours a day for seven days straight and blew his back. He had to see a chiropractor.”
The band recently announced the tracklist for their upcoming album, which will be released on June 17.
The Hunting Party will follow Linkin Park’s headline set at this year’s Download Festival, which will see them play their debut album Hybrid Theory in full.
