Linkin Park have revealed the second single from their fifth studio album 'Living Things'. You can hear the track, which is titled 'Lies Greed Misery', by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The album is due for release on June 25 in the UK and June 26 in the US. It is the follow-up to the band's 2010 fourth album 'A Thousand Suns' and has once again been produced by Rick Rubin. A previous single 'Burn It Down' has already been released.

Speaking to NME previously about 'Living Things', co-frontman Mike Shinoda said: "We chose the album title because it's more of a record about people. It's more about personal interactions. On the last few records we've had an interest in global issues and social issues and those things are still around, there are certainly traces of them, but this record is far more personal."

The singer also said that the album has a variety of moods, but that the anger that was a feature of the band's early work remains part of their repertoire.

He continued: "I see it as a very three-dimensional record. There are definitely moments of cathartic screaming, there are other parts where it's more about the lyrics and melody and there's rapping on it. There's a nice balance of all the vocal styles we do."

Linkin Park will tour the US this summer as part of a co-headline trek with Incubus. They will also play a small number of European dates in late May and early June.
