Linkin Park frontman Chester Benningtontold us the band is stoked to beonthe line-up. "We're looking for any excuse to get to Australia, honestly. We're so excited to get back there and to be part of a great festival,"he said. "I know Soundwave's kind of a newer festival, so we'reexcited to hopefully build a legacy there like some other great bands. We'll at least give people something special while we're there."

Bennington also said that Linkin Park's Soundwave set will include a mix of old and new tracks."'Burn It Down', 'Lost In The Echo', 'In My Remains', 'Victimized', 'Lies Greed Misery' are all going to be part of our set going forward," he said. "At that point maybe 'Powerless' will be getting worked in there, so a lot of the new record is going to be incorporated into our new set, as well as a lot of the songs that people really want to hear. And also some songs that we've put on the backburner for a while, so hopefully a lot of a our fans that came to our last show will get something that they didn't really get before."
