LINKIN PARK Members Lend Hand To Build 'Green' Apartments - June 3, 2010

According to The Pulse of Radio, LINKIN PARK vocalist Mike Shinoda, guitarist Brad Delson and bassist Dave "Phoenix" Farrell all recently donned hard hats and helped with the construction of a new "green" apartment complex in Lynwood, California. The energy-efficient dwellings are being built for families in need through funding from LINKIN PARK's Music For Relief organization in conjunction with Habitat For Humanity.

As of the end of May, according to the Music For Relief web site, the units' walls, windows, and exterior doors have been installed and the porch completed. All of the rough plumbing and electrical has been completed as well, with installation of exterior siding, furnaces, ceilings, insulation and drywall yet to come.

According to LINKIN PARK's web site, the house is being built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) specifications, "while staying true to Habitat's mission of making decent housing a matter of conscience and action."

Although LINKIN PARK started Music For Relief to help with clean-up efforts after the Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, vocalist Mike Shinoda told The Pulse of Radio not long ago that the band has taken a much more pro-active stance with the organization. "We realized as we were in the studio with (2007 album) 'Minutes to Midnight' that we could do things not just on the back end, on the clean-up, relief kind of end, but hopefully be proactive and combat global warming on other fronts, so that we wouldn't have to have as many, hopefully, catastrophes and be doing the kind of clean-up that we were already involved in," he said.

LINKIN PARK is currently in the studio working with producer Rick Rubin on its fourth album, which is expected to arrive later this year or early in 2011.
