With fans responding well to Linkin Park's fifth album, Living Things, frontman Chester Bennington told us that the band is feeling good about playing a good chunk of the record live when they start the Honda Civic Tour this weekend: "So far we've learned five songs. We're incorporating 'Lost In The Echo,' 'In My Remains,' 'Victimized,' 'Lies, Greed And Misery' and 'Burn It Down' in the new set. So half the record's gonna be in the new set and we're really excited about it. Actually, they feel like we've been playing them forever, I mean, at least from my perspective. They just slide right in -- it's like they've always been there. The energy of these songs fits right in."

The Honda Civic Tour, which Linkin Park is co-headlining with Incubus, begins in Bristow, Virginia on Saturday (August 11th).

Living Things landed at Number One on the Billboard album chart early last month, selling 223,000 copies in its first week of release.

The disc is also Linkin Park's fourth consecutive chart-topping album. According to Billboard, no other band has had more Number Ones than them since 2000.

Linkin Park's last album, 2010's A Thousand Suns, also topped the chart with first-week sales of 241,000 copies.
