New Album: Working

November 23, 2008

I took these with my phone. The other guys came in for our weekly Monday meeting, to review and discuss the songs’ progression. The rest of the week Brad and I tried to figure out how to ruin the songs, HAHA. Everything is going well.








  1. axrinekey on December 23, 2008 at 8:05 am

    the whole studio is decorated with LIGHTS.
    Ready to celebrate Christmas?

    Was Phoenix with his phone again?

    Haha, anyways, I guess as much as you ruin it, the better the songs will be.

  3. DragonOfLP on December 8, 2008 at 4:51 am

    yeah! xD perfect!!

  4. ArmadaMusicLead on December 2, 2008 at 6:37 pm

    Brad’s hair looks alot better this way. Hope this album’s a classic.

  5. JiNxX on December 2, 2008 at 12:16 am

    holy hair, Rob!

  6. D3lta on November 29, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    Hmmm, well, you do have about 13 months to make good on your 2009 prediction. So something I’ve been curious about for a while is the guitar tones you’re pulling off…skipping the amp micing techniques and mixing, what’s the signal path you like to use to get that defined distortion sound that seems rather unique in terms of not mudding up, yet remaining grungy? It looks like I see a PRS D/I interface, a few tube heads and SSL lunch boxes…but I can’t see any clear shots of any guitar pedals or processors.

  7. Yascha on November 29, 2008 at 2:49 am

    Yay, Christmas lights! XD Brings me in an early Christmas-mood. :p Brad’s new haircut looks great! πŸ˜€ He should keep this. And Rob looks pretty great too. But maybe he should cut it a little-little bit.. ;P Hehe, well okay, I love RTR and I can’t wait to hear the new album!
    xx’s and hugs ^^

  8. sasummsumm on November 28, 2008 at 9:55 am

  16. M4LL0RY on November 25, 2008 at 7:07 pm

    Now that Brad’s gotten a haircut, I think Rob might need one now. Hahahaha…

    Wow, that one comment about giving Rob head is really…disturbing. Lol.

  17. TaylorKenjiLP on November 25, 2008 at 2:28 pm

    ahh brad got a haircut! ha, thats probably delayed but i’m just noticing now. tell him he should keep it that legnth because its my favorite.

  18. Trenskinoda on November 25, 2008 at 11:42 am

    I hope you make more songs like the ones in Minutes to Midnight. I can’t wait for your new album…
    By the way, is it possible for us to be able to hear some of your raw music? I always get excited when you say that you have tons of material… I’m just so curious on what they are…Thanks! Good health to everyone!

  19. LPLUVER on November 25, 2008 at 10:51 am

    Hey Brad cut his hair!!

  20. Kurtis on November 25, 2008 at 9:29 am

    I’m tremendously glad, that Brad had his hair cut. Now he looks more handsome and attractive and sexy. And I like the string lights too!!!!

  21. fygure_x on November 25, 2008 at 9:27 am

    awesome o
    i like the lights in the studio, HAHA
    mr. drumhead’s hair are fucking cool!
    and… look to brad, sounds like meteora’s brad, HAHA

    continue posting about the progress of the new album, πŸ˜€

  22. IGrabbedChestersWrist on November 25, 2008 at 8:57 am

    Imagine giving Rob head while he’s sitting there like that… the trick is that he has to keep that thing on top of his other head the entire time.

  23. SteppinRazor on November 25, 2008 at 7:39 am

    I’m not sure why, but I thoroughly enjoy the string lights πŸ˜€

  24. YuN_RoCks on November 25, 2008 at 7:16 am

    haha Rob the drum head is awesome XD! it’s cool to see that you guys are doing great and that the new album is on the way, thanks for updating us =D Ps. the iPhone is not that great at taking pictures huh?! the last one is the best one, it’s clear. & the lights make a nice christmas atmosphere :] take care!

  25. Lobby on November 25, 2008 at 6:59 am

    Umm.. Aight Brad has a new, shorter haircut, which is nice, but Rob, what’s with the long hair? And Mr.Shinoda what phone is that? I mean iPhone doesn’t do pictures, does it? Road to Revolution seems to be rocking yeah.

  26. Shadow on November 25, 2008 at 5:27 am

    Seeing all those studio photos makes me feel, well, not involved but somehow close to the process of the new album being born. Thanks for putting them up! πŸ™‚ Nice to see Brad’s face again πŸ˜‰

  27. CuteWhiteBunny on November 24, 2008 at 10:54 pm


  28. TiffTiff33LP on November 24, 2008 at 4:53 pm

  32. DRUMMERDALZIEL on November 24, 2008 at 2:03 pm

    You are THE coolest band ever! lol

    I’ve gotta admit, I’m liking this new image you guys have got going. Pass on the message to Rob to keep the long hair thing going, and as much as I miss the Bradfro, he does look better with the trimmed beard.

    Can’t wait for this next album guys!

  33. Metal_Value on November 24, 2008 at 1:54 pm

    OMfG this is such a sign.

    Brad’s hair’s short. This must mean the new album’s reverting at least slightly to your old sound =P xD

    Naa whatever the new album is I’ll love it 100% anyways. Nice studio btw =O Taking a music tech course atm.. Those Yamaha speakers are ***** to work on, but yano xD

    Keep it up. Peace.

  34. nadine on November 24, 2008 at 1:49 pm

  46. PankakeMunky on November 24, 2008 at 5:41 am

    “The rest of the week Brad and I tried to figure out how to ruin the songs, HAHA. Everything is going well.” all i have to say is, “who says that?” as a very supportive fan, i’m very glad that the next LP album will be a collaboration of brad and your’s ideas for bad songs. that’s like saying “so, i’m going to give you this cookie, but i’m really kidding because i ate it already.” good to hear you guys are working on new stuff. hope it will sound good (either now or later). πŸ™‚

  47. LGP57 on November 24, 2008 at 4:49 am

    hum! I’ve bought Road To Revolution this morning and I’ve already seen it. Just amazing, a little bit short in fact… Good Luck for this new album, I’m waiting for it!

    and I’m afraid…what’s this new hairstyle Mr Delson? You were my spiritual guid in this way and you cut them? I gonna cry*

  48. Squishy_Ho on November 24, 2008 at 4:45 am

    i believe christmas has arrived in your studio. the christmas lights really didn’t give it away.

    but thanks for the pictures and the small comment =) and who knew a phone could take such good pictures. technology, how we (sometimes hate) love thee

  49. MrSAI on November 24, 2008 at 4:44 am

    Mike, I bought Road To Revolution today and I noticed that at 57:15 (during Pushing Me Away) a beast of a Moth flew onto your hand. How on earth did you keep playing? I would have completely ruined the song, haha.

  50. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on November 24, 2008 at 4:43 am

    nice studio nd nice lights, Mike xD im soo happy 4 the new album…Brad looks great with his new hair xD u’r awesome too:) byee Gabry x

  54. Helene on November 24, 2008 at 3:06 am

    when i read this post i was hyper happy and i fell off my chair. lol it seems that you guys have a lot of fun, which is great :)only i have to study a lot and now there’s snow storms in estonia. its so unfair. xD PS my mom almost had heart attack when she saw BBB's new haircut. Brad is nice :P
    have fun! -leenu

  55. Fox on November 24, 2008 at 2:38 am

    Okay, we’ve got the Hanukkah lights, now where are the tapestries? I can’t wait to hear what you guys are coming up with for the next album, but I guess I’ll have to, huh? And Brad, yeah, he looks so much better without the bird’s nest on his head.

  56. rocksylvie on November 24, 2008 at 2:28 am

    Thanks for the images! I hope you’ll be rapping on the new album! I adore your rap! I’m sure you’re ruining good those songs! πŸ˜‰ As I can see you can’t stay away of us for a long time and I’m so grateful! Good luck! Luv ya!

  57. rde on November 24, 2008 at 2:03 am

    The rumour is true! BRAD HAS CUT HIS HAIR!! And Rob’s hair has grown a lot!
    And nice Christmas lights!! ;D

  58. Mickey on November 24, 2008 at 1:36 am

    Cool pictures, Mike. Mr. Bourdon desperately needs a haircut, though. He’s starting to look a little like a girl. Hmm, maybe he’d look prettyful with a pink bow in it?
    Lol, sorry, I couldn’t help it.

  59. Michael1904 on November 24, 2008 at 1:30 am

    Hey man, is that NRG Studio A? That, combined with Brad’s current state of hair-affairs is giving me a real Meteora-vibe. I’m looking forward to the new music.

  60. Xenith on November 24, 2008 at 1:18 am


  61. TEQUILA on November 24, 2008 at 1:11 am

    “drum head” rules xD and don’t ruin songs before we get chance to hear them))))

  62. soyuneik on November 24, 2008 at 12:34 am

    Nice. So do you spin around on the stool as you switch between keys? I heard loveline. You guys had me dying. You really sorta disappointed me on your answers in regard to FM and Reanimation. I understand where you were coming from with being over it. But I will say this: Reanimation is on my mental list of albums I’ve rated as genius. Those on that list are the ones that give me chills, have moved me in some way and/or can be played from front to back without me growing tired of them. As for FM, I don’t think I really heard an answer. The one you did give left me thinking you were saying something else…

  63. lpfaint43 on November 24, 2008 at 12:34 am

    nice to see images of the studio:) please keep them comming!

  64. karma_capella on November 23, 2008 at 11:28 pm

    wtf?! Brad had cut his hait? omg…..
    yeah this news about album is really good. i wish you, guys, the best ideas for your recording!

    goo luck! pease!! ^^

    P.S. fives stars for this blog voted!!!!!!!!!!

  65. Lvix on November 23, 2008 at 11:23 pm

    hey! brad did a haircut:d

    You guys gonna use old demo’s you made for MTM to for the new album..
    Or is it just like: ‘Start over/again’ ?

  66. samlink on November 23, 2008 at 11:08 pm

    Yeah !!! I just woke up. Thats a really great news for me, for all fans. I’ve got a happy mood on whole day )))))

  67. ms_shock on November 23, 2008 at 10:51 pm

    WWWWOOOOOOO!!!!!! Thank you SO MUSH!!!! Voted 5 stars THAT’S what i like! And great Christmas atmosphere: lights everywhere xD Thumbs up

  68. chazmidnight on November 23, 2008 at 9:49 pm

    heya. you guys must be so busy. i get tired just looking at the studio set up. so organised.. glad its going well. we rooting for you all the way… good to see u all well!

  69. Aqua101 on November 23, 2008 at 9:23 pm

    O_O…I like the XMas lights all over the studio, I think its true you guys own light bulbs production…Ha-Ha-Ha. Good to see you guys having fun doing recording especially you & Brad ruining things around (I can imagine that must be funny). I got an honest confession : Rob…I LOVE YOU!! But, plz cut yr hair, sweety. You look more “Manly & Handsome” in shorter hair than too long. Brad hair is so cute! He looks younger. Dave is fine, but better w/ his “mohawk”. And you…Mike, plz SHAVE! You look much better & cute in clean face/hair. Don’t get too messy, darling. Anyway, LOVE YOU GUYS! Take care…;)

  70. ninguem on November 23, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    lp got more one award, contragulations πŸ˜€

    and rob needs a new shirt
    brad looks like christina aguilera’s husband

  71. Jelly on November 23, 2008 at 8:18 pm

    Oh Brad’s had a haircut^^ Cute:) So, where were you? Why didn’t you take some pics of you by yourself hehe. And I’m so eager to know how you and Brad ruin the songs haha!Anyway, I’m so glad to hear you guys are doing well πŸ™‚ Love you guys.

  72. ThePrincess on November 23, 2008 at 7:20 pm

    Woow what happen with Brad’s sexy hair ? anyway i’m glad to hear that everything is going well there…keep cool guys !!


  73. Kyoukan on November 23, 2008 at 7:06 pm

    Haha! I’m really diggin’ the Christmas lights Mike! They give the whole studio a much happier feeling haha…

  74. Hawaii_LP_fan on November 23, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    Haha, I love it! Mr. Rob aka dubbed “drum king” is showing off his crown! Very niice! :o) He looks regal, befitting of his title. That sure is a nice guitar pick Mr. Brad. I see & feel Christmas is in the air at LP’s studio. Whomever did the stringing of the lights sure did it with artistic flair, love it! haha Nice baby grand piano. Taking song requests? :o) There are lots of little buttons, levers, and slidee thingees on the board that are probably lots of fun to experiment with! Have fun ruining the songs & creating beautiful music (oxymoron? :op ). P.S. thanks Mr. Mike for sharing your pics (but where are you?). It made me smile. :o)

  75. Jon on November 23, 2008 at 6:25 pm

    Hey Mike, have you heard of David Ford? I think you’d like this – its all made on loop pedals live. This video is a live performance. He literally plays each part and builds up/loops/moves to next bit. Its amazing. Really great guy who was just touring the US with Ingrid Michaelson. I think you’d really enjoy his stuff.

  76. shan1105 on November 23, 2008 at 6:12 pm

    Glad to hear the new alblum is coming along!!! Whose idea were the christmas lights? How inspiring, ha ha. LOL

  77. kimCHEE on November 23, 2008 at 5:41 pm

    oooh! brad cut his hair! finally! lol. personally, i think he looks better with less hair. ._. lol wheres the mistletoe? hmmmm…. rob looks great without a goatee though. ahahah. hope LP’s new album comes out faster! πŸ˜€

    ciao, and take care!

  78. mack on November 23, 2008 at 5:10 pm vote vote vote!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  79. WookieBastard on November 23, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    check this out Mike, an impressive animated short… if you haven’t seen it, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.


  80. Wello on November 23, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    Roflcopter! XD This made my day. That has to be just about the most awesomest day job ever, wake up and go play music. πŸ˜€ Brad looks kind of epic in that picture btw, lol, it’s the perfect portrait… oh my goodness, Brad has friggin’ long fingers O_O i never noticed before… he’s got like cheat codes for the guitar! D:< uegugh, it’s starting to creep me out D:

  81. hit_n_run_me on November 23, 2008 at 4:23 pm

    I don’t know if you’ve come across this site before, but it’s basically a piss take of wikipedia; here’s linkin park’s page:

  82. withyou on November 23, 2008 at 4:18 pm

    WOW that’s great. It’s good to see you guys are having fun recording. BUT I really think Rob should cut his hair!!!

  83. EpilepticChickenScratch on November 23, 2008 at 4:04 pm

    Do you guys like…not own light bulbs? lmfao. Christmas lights all over the place!

  84. Carla on November 23, 2008 at 3:50 pm

    Brad got a haircut! Brad got a haircut! (sings and dances)

    Honestly, he looks alot better like that. Tell him I said that! Oh gosh, I’m digging the lighting. It makes the studio look alot more festive. After listening to Loveline: YES, include Humpty and Nice and Smooth on the next album. I’ll love you guys forever. ❀ Thing is, I really should have been asleep for school when I was listening to it and it resulted in me getting a grand total of 2 hours of sleep. I blame timezones! I think it was worth it though, along with those Stryker pics! Your red hair inspired me as a kid. πŸ˜›

  85. ritzifying on November 23, 2008 at 3:34 pm

    I think you need one more piano in there to get the feng shui going a little better. :p Do the guys ever get sick of cameras? Do you have to beg and plead with them on their day off for a picture for your blog? I can’t see Rob’s hair very well… He’s not gonna go all Billy Ray Cyrus Achy Breaky Heart on us, is he?

  86. Bajannez on November 23, 2008 at 2:58 pm

    Hah lol at the piano fort. And at the drum on head. I love Rob’s new hair, make it grow longer, it’s going to be so rock n’ roll. And Brad, I really hope you’re just cutting down the hair for a moment just to make it grow out nice again, ready with a big fro on the next touring cycle, dude, it’s your vintage style, it looks so much more awesome. Hair aside (feeling a bit silly here), I love the fact that you post about this here. Looking forward to the album. THOSE BUTTONS. People don’t seem to understand that there are a lot less buttons to get a hold on than they think. There are just the same amount of bottons for each track on the song, that’s why there’s so many. Nice strat btw.

  87. Jhuryn on November 23, 2008 at 2:55 pm

    Mike, has the band gone back to it’s original method of writing music like you used on HT and Meteora or have you stuck with the method that you adopted from Rick Rubin and used on MTM?

    Also, I love the rope lights. They really add to the atmosphere of the studio. I hope they’re inspiring some amazing new music! Rock on!

  88. NoMoreSorrowGirl on November 23, 2008 at 2:41 pm

    So sweet! It seems that you really enjoy the thing called ruining!hahaha!1st pic Oh!Dear God, Rob was so ccccccccccccuuuuuuuuutteeeeeee!!!love him:))…We all know that your phone is awesome you don’t need to say it that you took it by your phone ok honey!?and oh my!Look at Brad like everyone said he look like 20yrs.old…hahaha!And Mike why don’t you take pic of you?we miss you!

    Hi mike!!!!

    when I was listening ur interview in loveline… I heard U and Stryker talk about a photo Urs with him… well I have this one… I don’t know if is the same or not but I post it anyway…=)

    ONE MORE THING!!!… I cannot resist…I have post this one too…sorry xD…U seem soooo cute =P

    PS: sorry! my english sucks…=/

  90. AS_21 on November 23, 2008 at 2:16 pm

    the drum head! yeah! xD love it! anyway… amazing that there is so many buttons in the studio. yeah that IS understandable but why so many? ;p thank you really much for the pics. πŸ˜‰

  91. ShadowerLiltani on November 23, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    Rob’s haircut looks really nice, he works long hair well. Looks clean too. Lol, it’s like xmas in the studio. It’s an awesome studio. Too bad HIWATT is a brand name because that would be a cool title for a song. In fact, a whole album with songs named after studio equipment/computer stuff would be hilarious: Qwerty, Hiwatt, Ibanez, Switch-Board, Vocoder, Dovrac, XP, Pentinum, Start, Programs, Accessories, Paint.

  92. durg on November 23, 2008 at 2:11 pm

    i cant get over brads short hair πŸ˜€ d’aww

  93. VW_LP_GOLF on November 23, 2008 at 1:58 pm

    thats so cool!! haha i love brads hair is so much better!! mike i dont see any pics of you?? lol and where are u guys recording at ???

  94. Lori on November 23, 2008 at 1:53 pm

    lol theres a lot a buttons….do you know what they all do?? lol im like dee dee from dexters lab, “what does this button do??!!” and then its broken :S

  95. KATHYxx on November 23, 2008 at 1:50 pm

    Nice. That reminds me of NRG, are you guys recording there again? Can’t not spend money there huh? I almost can’t believe you guys are in the studio already, because I’m so used to waiting for so long maybe.

    Also, i love Brad’s hair. Nice to see him rockin a new style.

  96. SdwOTD on November 23, 2008 at 1:49 pm

    Ah! Brad cut off his hair! It looks soo much better now. Looks like Rob is makin up for him though ^_~

    Very Christmas-e =D. ::looks over at undecorated tree:: I’m gettin there….

    Good to hear that things are progressing, and lol at y’all tryin to ruin the songs! =P

  97. Esaul on November 23, 2008 at 1:43 pm

    The fro! Noooooooooo!

    Lovin’ the christams lights though =3

  98. Madlen on November 23, 2008 at 1:42 pm

    First of all…I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!Brad’s hair is gone:DIt’s like this picture is old-from the making of Meteora era:DI bet 80-90 percent of the people here posted about Brad’s hair:DAnyway can’t wait to hear the new stuff:DThank you so much for posting these stuff for us-you know we’re dying for the info:)

  99. simsta21 on November 23, 2008 at 1:38 pm

    Nice pics Mike….OMG Brad’s hair…. already decorated the studio πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  100. Anne on November 23, 2008 at 1:33 pm

    Ah, I think, I know how it works:

    Brad cuts his hair, because of Rob. Rob allways wanted to have a nice and decent haircut so brad ironed his hair and then tadaa :o) Well, I like both looks, though Brad really looks a thousand years younger πŸ˜‰ If Brads wife wants to have a younger guy, she just needs to say: cut ur hair, Brad. I am talking rubbish πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the update Mike. I would love to sit and listen to one of your monday meetings.
    Take Care!
    PS: I found the additional songs on the DVD, very tricky, guys haha

  101. LinkinParkROCK on November 23, 2008 at 1:25 pm

    I cant wait to hear all the new stuff! Im sure it will be AWESOME! Woha Brads hair!! xx

  102. pandora426 on November 23, 2008 at 1:00 pm

    Great news in the end of the night! It’s only november but you seem to work at full speed. Hope the Fuse race make you angry and record badass rap’n’rolling stuff yeeah!

  107. Hybr1d_7h3ory on November 23, 2008 at 12:29 pm

    Geeze Brad’s hair is short!!! Is that a member of LP’s studio? It’s pretty tight, gad to see you guys are enjoying yourselves.

    Keep us updated…Hybr1d_7h3ory

  108. missdunno on November 23, 2008 at 12:21 pm

    Thank you for the news Mike! It seems like it’s Xmas time here…:)

  109. MusicalMorphine on November 23, 2008 at 12:21 pm

    That last picture totally just took me back to the making of meteora!

  110. antje on November 23, 2008 at 12:09 pm

    Brad…he looks so young… πŸ˜‰ nice…

  111. Yume on November 23, 2008 at 12:08 pm

    oh, you asked yourself how to ruin the songs?
    some idas: play wrong notes, forget the text, you could change the records, …

    and a small verse:
    sorry, but i’m sure,
    my english is very poor^^

    wow, and thats true!^^

  112. MarishkaLP on November 23, 2008 at 12:05 pm

    WoW, you have lights all around the studio, that’s fun πŸ™‚ Brad looks like he came from 2003, Rob’s got a nice hat, but too heavy i guess xD and Phoenix’s concentrated on the writing process, recording his ideas on the phone, i think πŸ™‚ nice pics, thanx! lot of fun! xD

  113. Treviun on November 23, 2008 at 12:00 pm

    Haha! When someone posted “Rob is trying new shells”, I thought he was referring to his home (like a hermit crab…he lives in the drum!).

    I can see a pack of cards on the table on the mixer…lol, what’s the worst you’ve lost at poker/blackjack (assuming you play one of those two).

    What is that, 4 pianos?! Do 4 of you guys play at the same time?

    Finally: Nice new look for Brad…looks like the Meteora days! Is that a Fender by any chance?

  114. panta_rhei on November 23, 2008 at 11:56 am

    hey i love the lights, i also have those light chains in my room πŸ˜‰
    but what has brad done with his hair? why doesn’t he cut it very short again?

  115. Joanie_LP on November 23, 2008 at 11:54 am

    yey, love you Bourdie ❀

    can’t wait for the whole… “conceptual” album πŸ™‚

    and what a christmas mood ^^

  116. faiintx on November 23, 2008 at 11:48 am

    nice lights near the piano

    cant wait for more updates on the new album! ur my IDOL mike!
    and brads haircut is cool!
    — pallavi

  117. YourConscience on November 23, 2008 at 11:48 am

    Hehehe. You guys should convince Rob to tease out his hair one day, and grow out a mustache. And then Brad could crew-cut his hair and shave off his mustache. And then the people who get them confused (which I still don’t know how people do) can REALLY be like, “Wait, who’s who? What?” Hahaha. That would be amazing. Rob with a ‘fro and Brad without– …without a mustache?! o.0 Anyhow, take care. P.S. You guys should totally participate in the San Diego Run for the Hungry on Thursday…

  118. SimplyMode on November 23, 2008 at 11:46 am

    OMG!! OMG!!

    Brad’s hair looks OMG!!

    I love it, I mean I loved it before but wow!

    Ok anyway, can’t wait for the album I’m getting road to revolution tomorrow!!! πŸ˜€

  119. pepper on November 23, 2008 at 11:45 am

    -Robs hair is so long
    -Brads hair is so short

    -and pheonix is full fledged immersed in no-shave november! lol
    Love the christmas lights!
    Thank youfor taking pics mike and putting them up for us to see the progress, it lets us feel a little more involved! Its just awesome to constantly know how hard you guys are working and how much you guys care about us πŸ˜€
    WE LOVE YOU TOO!!!!!

    oh and R2R tomorrow! I can’t believe its hear ive been countting down for like 50 days!! lol Mines getting shipped but I hope I still get it tomorrow!

  120. Mikeshi_Linkfort on November 23, 2008 at 11:43 am

    Very good news =) Mike…. You with other guys already prepare for New year?…. Where then a fur-tree? HAHAH =)

  121. NeneLP88 on November 23, 2008 at 11:37 am

    Is this your house studio, Mike? I like the Xmas lights (are they?) all around the studio! πŸ™‚

    Have a nice work and be careful not to ruin the new songs too much, ok? XD

  122. Janni_Loves_LP on November 23, 2008 at 11:29 am

    Hi Mike! Interesting to see how you’re doing… Glad to hear everything is “going well”, lol.. Please, Mike and Brad, try not to ruin all the songs, will ya? hehe ;P Thanx for the update Mike ^^ Keep ’em coming! xD

  123. bec on November 23, 2008 at 11:13 am

    To WTF: ‘Pfft. What’s with all the Brad comments? The hell with him, I barely noticed. That first pic makes me want to rape Rob…’

    Creepy! I’m sure Rob really appreciates that!

    To Mike: good to see you guys are working on something new and hopefully not abusing Rob – seeing him with a drum on his head can have a strange affect on people.

  124. Ruben on November 23, 2008 at 11:12 am

    I’d like it if you use more piano πŸ™‚ not only for chords, but for a main riff, like on We Made It πŸ˜€

  125. DLB on November 23, 2008 at 11:11 am

    Wow, Brad looks exactly like he did 5 years ago during the Meteora days. Yay Brad! πŸ˜€ Phe looks good in his hat, but i still think fedora’s up his credibility. XD [stares hard at Rob] 83~~~ Can I hug him please?! [hugs the screen with rob’s picture] I ❀ Rob :} He's the Drummer Extraordinaire!! I'm so excited for the new cd. πŸ˜€ I wish Rob would showcase his piano talents more often though, "Song 72" from the m2m dvd was really pretty. I know Rob and you have taken piano lessons when younger, but can the other's play piano too? In Frat Party, Phe and Brad were playing piano, there's a picture of Chaz playing piano, and Joe was tinking around on m2m, so yeah…


  126. luciana on November 23, 2008 at 11:04 am

    wow…i can’t wait for the new album :D/,…
    and Brad looks so cute….:D…but a picture with you?:(

  127. KikaCZ on November 23, 2008 at 11:01 am

    LOL..Ruin the songs?OMG…The photos are good, but a bit disapointing cause Brad has cut his hair!!!I really liked the cauliflower on his head-ItΒ΄s a pitty heΒ΄s got rid of it-i hope he felt some regret, cause it was really original!(now Rob should do something with his hair-he know what i mean) Hope the new album is gonna be so fantastic like the other ones.DonΒ΄t disapoint me you guys!!(well,I know you wont cause youΒ΄ve always done a great job)hope you are doing well you guys..Have a nice day!:-D

  128. AsN on November 23, 2008 at 11:00 am

    Hey Guys you are amazing…. PLz keep in touch your your fans as you always do!! Love your music… And one more…


  129. burntwaffle on November 23, 2008 at 10:56 am

    Since Brad got his haircut, its time for rob.. Good to see you guys back in the studio!

  130. miKer0cks on November 23, 2008 at 10:50 am

    Wow!!! Yeah!!! OMLP…Brad looks so…so… young and cute!!! I like him that way….His hair are aweosme!!! Tell him to leave them like this πŸ™‚ Rob looks great too and Phi πŸ™‚ Btw…Phi is a really cute nickname…Who came up with it? I see you have x-mas lights in the studio πŸ™‚ Wow love that…They make the atmosphere really cozy πŸ™‚

    PS. In fuse you are doing ok so far, but there’s gonna be a big battle these last hours of voting : I hope you guys make it to the semi-finals….You really deserve it ❀

    PS 2. Tomorrow is the big day!!! Road to revolution is released!!! Yeah…O.o and MTV Greece is gonna broadcast the live concert in Milton Keynes tomorrow night πŸ™‚ That’s so cool πŸ˜€

  131. petiterocker on November 23, 2008 at 10:47 am

    i really like the rob pic XD it’s so funny ^^ and cool to see he’s trying new shells and stuff (metal as opposed to maple, and back on the 14×5 :D)

    anywhoo… is it NRG you’re working at again? because the place where rob was sat really looks like the place with meteora too.

  132. Truculentangel on November 23, 2008 at 10:45 am

    wow…he cut his hair,looks nice πŸ™‚ you guys must spend,like,hours in the studio,i kno if i did,id take a pillow&my fave blanket XD jst wondering,do you guys ever get bored in the studio???EVER???with all that equipment,i bet this new album is gonna be freakin awsome like all the others X) cant wait…oh,one more thing,i kno itz been months ago,but the show in dallas,that was amazing…i hope you guys come back sometime keep up the great work guyz =)

    Ahhh, look at Brad’s hair! You guys are already into the winter/Christmas spirit, I can see. AHHHHHHH – Paramore is catching up in Fuse’s “Best Video of 2008”! Hope you guys have an awesome Thanksgiving with family and friends, and you best be working on that album so that it comes out in 2009! Preferably early to mid-2009.. (:

    It’s christmas time, yeah! xD

    I like Brad’s new haircut. πŸ˜€ But now this t-shirt no more agrees. 😦 xD

    And I am pleased to see that you works on the new album. =)
    Have a nice day.

    (I’m so bad in english xD)

  140. Kalini on November 23, 2008 at 10:20 am

    Mike, I must confess you take extremely good photos with your phone! The photo of the piano is more than amazing! Glad to hear you have a weekly Monday meeting, my colleagues and me, too. So, you know already how to ruin the songs. Then, what’s next? What comes after you ruin the songs? HAHA! Thanks for the update! Krassie K.

  141. skindesbous on November 23, 2008 at 10:10 am

    :D! Why has Rob replaced his sticks for his head? It’s funny to see how you doing in studio πŸ™‚ THANKS!

  142. WTF on November 23, 2008 at 10:04 am

    Pfft. What’s with all the Brad comments? The hell with him, I barely noticed. That first pic makes me want to rape Rob…

  143. clara110 on November 23, 2008 at 9:56 am

    i agree with LPFMFAN about Brad’s haircut.. i’m sorry mike but i had to write that.xP..have a nice day.xD

  144. Shelby1967 on November 23, 2008 at 9:56 am

He sorta looks like how he did in FPATPF, except he was completely bald in one of the movie & then in the other spot in the movie he sorta has really short hair. HAHA! Off topic much? c[= BTW Can’t wait for R2R to come out! & also the NEW CD! =) Bye Mike! Peace!

    -Catiana C.

  148. Raiden on November 23, 2008 at 9:41 am

    At last, new pics from the guys. I really like it. It’s good to know that the new album is in the making process. Thanks Mike. Road To Revolution is coming tomorrow. Only the LPU8 cd left to release.

  149. Henna on November 23, 2008 at 9:39 am

    Nice blog. It’s always nice to see pictures of u guys (trying to) work lol. just joking. .good to see u guys back in the studio having fun. Loving the drum flex Rob’s got going on haha. Oh and i wanted to know whether you like Tokio Hotel? Take Care.
    Henna (England) xx

  150. lp_fm_fan on November 23, 2008 at 9:37 am

    Lol, great pics! having fun!! πŸ˜€

    And tell Brad: he looks good with short hair! we’ll miss the fro though!

    we knew about it for a few weeks but just never said anything. πŸ˜›


    Y’all won favorite artist under alternative rock music. πŸ™‚

  151. RavRule52 on November 23, 2008 at 9:34 am

    finally! you guys got in the studio. looks pretty awesome. are you guys recording at nrg again?

  152. Phoebolita on November 23, 2008 at 9:32 am

    I am in awe of your grand piano. Muchos jealousy over here.

    But on a different note, I have a little question I’ve been meaning to post for a while. Now, rock in general is very male orientated, so it seems. So I was wondering, out of any branch of the genre, which female in the industry you have respect for, have regard for their talent or simply enjoy their music?

    But yeah, have fun ruining the new tracks, as you put it!

  153. murry on November 23, 2008 at 9:25 am

    I like the ambience of the random string lights. Maybe that’s what I need in my work environment.

  154. lynndarwinharris on November 23, 2008 at 9:24 am

    AWESOME!!! Can’t wait!!! Thanks for keeping us updated!!

  155. RachaelLP on November 23, 2008 at 9:23 am

    Nothing like Linkin Park in the studio pictures to cheer you up. =] Rob’s looking a cool guy as always.
