The Catalyst

Well its been a crazy morning when The Catalyst premiered worldwide today morning at BBC Radio 1 at 19:00 GMT. Everyone around the world went nuts as the first single of Linkin Park's upcoming album 'A Thousand Suns' premiered. The track shows the evolution of Linkin Park as a band, and as with every album the change in the sound. Linkin Park needs no introduction, being the top experimental artists in the globe and setting a genre of their own. 

Everyone went insane as Zane Lowre gave a shout out to the 'most loyal fans of any artist' in the world which includes the LPU, and many other fan sites. It was followed by a short commentary by Chester Bennington, lead vocalist of the band and a sweet second round of the much awaited single.

Mike Shinoda even had a chat with fellow fans on LPU, linkinpark.com and on Ustream.tv

A thank you to LP Association, another long running fan site who work hard in keeping everyone updated apart from the official sites, sneak peeks offered by many like us, and reminders for stuff which isn't formally announced. Their involvement is pretty great. Kudos to the LPA team!

Finally, a big thanks and kudos to Linkin Park for their hardwork and dedication in what they do, the oucome being such a heavenly master piece!

Listen to The Catalyst at Linkin Park's myspace or at iTunes NOW!




The Catalyst Lyrics:

God bless us every one
We’re a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can’t be outfought
It can’t be outdone
It can’t be outmatched
It can’t be outrun
No

And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light
(God bless us every one / we’re a broken people living under loaded gun)
Oh / like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

God save us every one
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns
For the sins of our hand
The sins of our tongue
The sins of our father
The sins of our young
No

And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light
(God save us every one / will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns)
Oh / like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

Lift me up
Let me go



Joe Hahn, the DJ of the band who directs most of their videos has made a trailer of the upcoming game Medal Of Honor featuring The Catalyst as the soundtrack.



So what do you think? Excited?

Edit: This one is with the lyrics but note that this is NOT the official music video of The Catalyst.
Decided to put this up as well as its up through the official channel and is so dope.


The music video for The Catalyst will be out by the end of August 2010.
