I just found out that Linkin Park's über cool emcee, Mike Shinoda came out with a chillin' new band, a side project called, Fort Minor (a collaboration with friends in between LP albums). I found out about it in an ad that came out in a magazine earlier tonight, and I'm down with it the first time I heard it. The album, Rising Tied is produced and mixed by Shinoda, he also wrote every track, played 99% of the instruments (except the strings) and "slaved over every detail." You can listen to the three lead singles: Believe Me, Petrified, and Remember the Name here in their official site ("enter flash" instead of "html"). I also got to see the videos of their lead singles online and I must say it's really awesome! I'm getting it later.
