    It looks like the new Steve Aoki x Linkin Park track "Darker Than Blood" is stepping up promotion with the impending single release on April 14th. Linkin Park announced on their Facebook page that the music video is currently being recorded and Mike Shinoda and Steve Aoki also live streamed a portion of the track on Periscope yesterday which you can check out below.

    It's not very clear what direction the music video will be going in. Steve Aoki teased a few images on his Instagram account, including shots of himself being dressed up as some kind of cyborg robot, however he appears to be wearing the same android costume in another shot posted today with Luke Steele, who he collaborated with on the title track for Neon Future, so it's hard to say whether he's recording multiple music videos this week, maybe a yet untitled track featuring Luke Steele, or if Luke Steele will be making a cameo in the Darker Than Blood video. Guess we'll have to wait and see, but until then you can check out the teaser images on Steve's Instagram by clicking the image below.

    I like the preview. It's a step up from Aoki's previous beats and drops. I hope this is a big hit with clubs to be honest. :lol:

    That costume certainly seems...interesting. I'd like to see the music video that's featured in, regardless of whether it's "Darker Than Blood" or not. :lol:

    The studio version sounds cool. The song's duration is 5:13 (as it shows on the video). Looking forward to some new cool stuff.

    I'm a bit more intrigued now. The song sounded decent enough. As someone who is getting more and more into electronic music, this might just be what I like.

    Sounds like an enjoyable song.

    Btw: Somehow it is funny that you mention your own youtube channel as source :D

    Seriously, who thought that was a half decent single cover and was like "Oh shit, this is it guys"?

    I enjoy it. There are a couple other members on here who have stated that they like the cover too.
    Besides, there is no reason to complain.
    Its not like the cover determines how good the song will be, not to mention this song is being handled entirely by Aoki. LP didn't design it.

    Yes, he started a side-band called Linking Park and it's a replacement of his scrapped Fort Minor comeback.

    They've gone way too over the top trying to appeal to the EDM crowd, Recharged was a fail of epic proportions and this just rubs salt into the wound

    They're doing little extra things on the side. I don't really see it pandering because... Well. It's not a studio album. So.

    Yeah, I'm more interested in seeing the video than hearing the song at this point
