two great new things on the band website…

firstly, there is a great “making of the video” clip for LEAVE OUT ALL THE REST (it’s also at the bottom of this page on the widget). you have to watch it, there are some classic moments.

secondly, to all young bands in the U.S.: we’re joining up once again with MTV2 to offer you a chance to play projekt revolution. if you know someone in a band who is eligible, make sure they sign up…the winning band gets to play projekt revolution this summer!

head over to to check both things out:

    Hehehe the making of video is hilarious!! I love videos like that cos it really makes you appreciate all the blood.sweat and tears that went into making it. And that makes it even better!

    Ah man my brother and his band were pissed at you guys when they heard you were only doing that band competition in the US…but,you know,they’re so lazy they just expect things to fall into their laps…I think the battle of the bands thing is a great idea.

    Still waiting on news from Brad :-(,

    lol … funny stuff …the way Chester explained everything around cracked me up …
    oooh! i’d like to sleep in one of those things (in the video it looked like you had a tiny nose ring on while sleeping .. haha! someone has it on their sig on LPMB so its super-evident)… Joe’s done some real nice job … =) … oh … the trick behind Phi’s floating is hilarious .. but awesome … you guys are great

  11. Ilo on June 20, 2008 at 4:53 am

    Iยดve seen the making of……I allways like to see how things/you works. I liked the part where Brad was saying that he likes it more when he can just stand on stage an play guitar……the way he looked was fantastic!! ;-))

    And Iยดd like to repeat myself……this is a real good video, for me the best youยดve ever made….congrats fo Josef!!


  12. Blaesbjerg on June 20, 2008 at 3:47 am

    Firstly i think it’s really great of you guys, to give another band the oppertunity to be in Projekt revolution!.. To the band who goes, they are REALLY lucky..
    It’s great to see the making of leave out all the rest, and nice to see you guys still have some humor xD And basically just see how you work and so on..

  13. ThunderStrike on June 20, 2008 at 2:34 am

    I’ve really been wanting to watch that vid. And it’s really nice that you’re doing this for new bands. Not only will it help them be recognized but it’ll give them some exposure and you guys will surely inspire them to do their best!! =D

  14. crystalrussianla on June 19, 2008 at 11:39 pm

    hope you like it.

  16. Mickey on June 19, 2008 at 5:02 pm

    Gah! I’ve been trying to watch the making of LOATR for days, but the widget is a bitch to me and won’t play…or show anything, for that matter. And the tv thing on the LPU isn’t any better. PMS, maybe?

  17. nikkiann0100 on June 19, 2008 at 4:34 pm

    Those clips are funny. I guess Brad wasnt feeling the hair dryer. I can imagine how long it takes to dry his hair. lol.

  18. NeneLP88 on June 19, 2008 at 4:30 pm

    I’ve already watched the making of on LP’s site.. Nice^^ When I was watching I was like “mhmmm bad Mike! They’ve uploaded this video here and he hasn’t told us anything!” And here it is =P

    Anyway, now I’m gonna sleep cuz tomorrow I’ll be at my first LP live show!! I’m so excited and I guess I won’t sleep that much ^.^’

    Mike, you’re already in Venice, isn’t it? So, please, don’t stay in to post stuff on your blog.. XD Go out and visit our wonderful car-less town in northern Italy, if you haven’t done it yet.. (joking =P) Nah, don’t worry I won’t be there stalking you, I’m not from Venice =PPP

    See you tomorrow evening, then!!! < 3 =D

  19. analoggirl on June 19, 2008 at 4:26 pm

    Loved the video! Your blue screen shenanigans and mobster impression were pretty hilarious. ๐Ÿ˜€ I also liked Rob’s feeble attempt to get more face time and Brad’s method acting. (lol) Question: do you actually check out the bands that win the MTV2 contest?

  20. Zmazhiing on June 19, 2008 at 4:06 pm

    Saw it earlyer today,it was really funny ^^ Donยดt know if you seen this but its funny as hell x’D Itยดt one of my favorite video, i have seen it about a million times, but im not as everybody else ๐Ÿ˜›
