Upset that no money from the Warner Music Group IPO will go to artists, Linkin Park wants to sever ties with the label. But Warner Music sees the threat to bolt as strictly a negotiating tactic. Linkin Park, one of the top-selling rap-rock outfits, released a statement Monday saying band members have become increasingly concerned that WMG’s diminished resources will leave it unable to compete in today’s global music marketplace. The band, led by singer Chester Bennington, was about to start work on its next album, which was slated for a spring 2006 release, which has been put on hold for the time being.
