Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda has revealed to Rock Sound that the video for their next single, 'Given Up', will be made with footage shot during their recent show at London's 02 Arena.
''That song is just so raw and punk rock that we wanted a video that was like that,'' the band's co-frontman told us. ''The DIY punk rock answer would be: 'why hire a director?' So the whole band just pitched in ideas. We got together with our friend Mark who films our LP TV episodes and explained our ideas to him and he told us his ideas and it was just like any organic thing you put together with your friends for a You Tube clip. We made it ourselves. I don't know what the budget's going to be but it will be the tenth of a fraction of what a normal video budget would be. It's going to be a fraction.''
