    Hey Mike! I was at the NAMM convention, and came to your demo! I can’t really see the vid either, but I watched the Youtube one. πŸ™‚ Makin’ sales baby! πŸ˜‰ I’m not gonna lie… I want Protools 8 now! Haha! Hope all’s well, and the new stuff gets released soon!

    A happy new year.
    I can’t see this video too! But thanks for the download link. The song is fantastic. Can’t wait for the new album.

  3. Mantvydas on December 30, 2008 at 7:46 am

    I’ve just downloaded the mp3 of the song you’ve created. Wow! What a fantastic instrumental you’ve made. A true Linkin Park inside it I feel. Superb! I anticipate a very big comeback next year, even bigger than Minutes To Midnight, with your new album next year. With your first two albums you were just a new band from around the corner, with Minutes you have established yourself, as a serious band, and next year you just have to stomp your feet out loud: “We’re here forever”. Good luck!

    Happy Holidays Mike,
    I see you got one of your toys early. ProTools 8. I just listened to “Lockjaw” and like it quite a bit. It’s always fun being creative with new toys. I look forward to the new cd and find out what other wonderful things you’ve done with your new toy. I practice Zen Buddhism and I’ve made some of the lyrics in some of your songs my daily chants to get me through the day.

    Wishing You A Spiritually Enriched Day!!

  9. Joanie_LP on December 15, 2008 at 1:31 am

    See, that’s why I love LP. Great music whenever you want! πŸ˜€

    And I love Bourdie’s beats! Keep it going, hope we hear this on the album!!! BTW, it’s sound more FM than LP but it’s really cool so who cares. πŸ™‚

  10. Madlen on December 14, 2008 at 1:03 pm

    Woohoo I’m gonna put it on my page:)Thank you so much for sharing that with us Mike:)And I do hope this demo will end up in the new album:)

  11. PsykX on December 14, 2008 at 8:36 am

    AHhh nice work man ! The instrumental part caught my attention more than ProTools 8, but it’s still good to see that you’re working on a Mac and on the latest platforms available πŸ˜›

    What I’d like in the next album is that you rework this song called “Japan”, it sounded so good, I can’t even believe it didn’t make it to the album!

  12. Svetik on December 14, 2008 at 3:40 am

  17. MS_Ineedyou on December 13, 2008 at 9:42 am

    I can’t see the video 😦

  18. sasummsumm on December 13, 2008 at 8:04 am

    can’t see the video too 😦

  19. D3lta on December 13, 2008 at 7:56 am

    They are really pushing back the release date of PT8. Obviously, they either have a working beta, or a finished product ready for action. o_O I’d also like to see a more affordable HD option. Hear that, Digi? Anyway, I’m super stoked about this new version.

  20. Kalini on December 13, 2008 at 7:24 am

    I can’t see the video. Is it the same as the previous one? If it’s the same, then it’s OK. KK

  21. saravana on December 13, 2008 at 6:44 am

    Just the drum beat has all the makings of a Great album!!

  22. LaKennyLP on December 13, 2008 at 3:53 am

    Mike, this video doesn’t work for me, it doesn’t load 😦

    But know that 2 or 3 days ago I watched the other vid, the first one. And…

    I just hve to say that was INCREDIBLE that instrumental part, tbh… INCREDIBLEEEEEEE!!!!! :DDD

  23. Shinodabestfriend on December 13, 2008 at 3:04 am

    Michael, I can’t see the video… =(
    and yesterday was a wonderful day.. know why? I’m gonna tell you.. I saw in tv (mtv) all your videos and at 10.32 p.m., you live with my entire family.. πŸ˜€ I’M HAPPYYY!!! yeeeee!!!!! ^^ LINKIN PARK RULES! your band is freakin famous, man! and so beautiful… ..Mike.. I’m reading in Internet that your band hasn’t more energy as much as years ago… Mike this is sad… make new rock songs and show them how much power you’ve got in your veins!! I hate those fuckers… please….. be powerful in the new cd! goes to cut the head of the haters off (whatever you’re work on, is perfect. they don’t understand a fuck about music)

  24. Girl_X on December 13, 2008 at 1:40 am

    I hate this M. R. PORNO STUFF!

    It is just one thing perverted!

    But yes, we have enough perverted people on this planet!

  25. George on December 12, 2008 at 6:19 pm

    Ok guys, I seriously friggin love this!!

    I HOPE this instrumental is a teeny weeny sign of things to come in the new record.

    I mean, it sounds like post-MtM LP, with a strong sign of the band’s musical progression and new direction, but it also feels like a lot of the old elements from oldschool LP are resurfacing! Minutes to Midnight piano melody + Hybrid Theory/Meteora sounding beat = AWESOME.

    If the guys have really evolved to such an even-more-unique-than-they-previously-were style, this next album could easily be LP’s greatest work to date.

    So exciting- I have dreams of the band I grew up with one day being acclaimed as the Best of our generation!

    Keep it up guys!!

  26. lynndarwinharris on December 12, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    It’s on my myspace page!! I need to change my background on my page, so it can be more visable. Thank you for sharing!! πŸ™‚

  27. Lori on December 12, 2008 at 1:42 pm

    dude that instrumental sounded excellent!! πŸ™‚ and the piano bit at the end reminded me of “in the end” which in turn reminded me of giant whales lol.

  28. KATHYxx on December 12, 2008 at 1:32 pm

    Well, I would love to watch the video, if it would buffer.

  29. Fleaud on December 12, 2008 at 1:31 pm

    oh, the instrumental is really great ❀

  30. cuz on December 12, 2008 at 1:16 pm

    I can’t see it on IE but it works on Google Chrome. Anyways, thanks for making it possible. I love that instrumental πŸ™‚

  31. tinkerbella26 on December 12, 2008 at 12:02 pm

    Well I can’t see it or hear it.. BUT thanks for the update and best wishes on the new album!! Can’t wait.. Ohhh, I have a question.. I dunno if you’ve answered this or not, but what influenced the LPU8 cd?? Just curious…It’s funny as hell!!

  32. Shinizzle3 on December 12, 2008 at 11:05 am

    ok..the instrumental sounds great but now all my hope is gone that the next album will be more like the older ones.. i mean i do think it sounds great..but it ..i don’t know, it kinda sounds
    ..”minutes to midnight-dish”..

  33. MarishkaLP on December 12, 2008 at 10:48 am

    MAGICAL MUSIC, Mike!!! hope hope hope hope hope to hear this song in the future! πŸ™‚

  34. Jaclyn on December 12, 2008 at 10:33 am

    Respect and much love! I put it on myspace and it really works! πŸ˜€

    my space

  35. Saralx on December 12, 2008 at 10:31 am

    Nice Vid, nice advertising…;) ..but i adooore this melody thing you did there…..

  36. keineAhnung on December 12, 2008 at 7:58 am

    got the same problem as lynnie…but the weird thing is that I can’t watch the vid if I use internet explorer 8…but then I tried firefox and the video appears, but it’s not about you guys being in the studio but it’s the glorious excess: art scholar vid -.-

  37. Ewelina16 on December 12, 2008 at 7:55 am

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

  38. dianlucas on December 12, 2008 at 7:36 am

  42. Horizone on December 12, 2008 at 5:53 am

    Mike, thank you so much for this instrumental track, it’s amazing. I’ve been listening to it for 39 or 40 time.

    I’ve even write lyrics for this track.

    Here it is

    Why I am so alone?
    I’ve been waiting for you so long.
    I have checked every place.
    Maybe you were displaced.

    Stop hiding, show your face.
    I have got just a phrase.
    I’ve got a word to you.
    I’ll die without you.

    P.S. If I’ve got some trouble with grammar, forgive me.

    I dedicate it to You and your bandmates.

  43. Lynnie on December 12, 2008 at 5:39 am

    My computer is being a tit and won’t let me see the video! ~Cries~
    I hate this computer!
    Mike – wanna swap?

  44. christella on December 12, 2008 at 5:08 am

    Thank you so much for being so friendly and letting us know what you are experiencing (adding the twist of advertisement, too)! This instrumental part sounds great! it is good to know that it’s easy for you to use that program

    Am I the only one who actually couldn’t see any links or videos on this blog site and needed to follow the youtube link in comments section?
    Edit: I found it now on the video section, didn’t look there before

  45. Lvix on December 12, 2008 at 4:09 am

    I tried to embed the video at my fansite

    but it didn’t work.

  46. SprayPaint_InkPens on December 12, 2008 at 3:24 am

    interesting nonetheless.

  50. ms_shock on December 12, 2008 at 12:37 am

    WWOOO!!! THAT’S a gr8 thing!! now i can share your videos…. 10x!!!!

  51. rocksylvie on December 12, 2008 at 12:13 am

    Hey there! Thank you for this video! I love it! Can’t wait to hear more! I’ve written before: I’d like some rap from you on the next CD. I love every song, which has your voice and Chester’s, joining to render all those intense feelings! I love your instrumental songs, too! Anyway, I’m sure that you’ll never disappoint us! Thank you for being with us and sharing some of your work! Lot love 2 u!

  52. lp_fm_fan on December 11, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    Thanks, Mike! Love the instrumental, really. You should check out the LPU, there’s a thread about the instrumental y’all did, most of us love it! πŸ™‚

  53. Lussy on December 11, 2008 at 9:43 pm

    The song in video is really AWESOME. I hope The songΒ΄ll be on new CD……..=)

  54. TudorBran on December 11, 2008 at 9:25 pm

    Hey mike, is there a chance for us the hear the entire song? I mean, could it be released here or for the LPU as a Christmas gift?
    Thanks and keep up the good work

  55. NataliaForgotten on December 11, 2008 at 9:16 pm

    The instrumental sounds just awesome, it’s so good to see Rob playing (I learned how to play my firsts songs watching him)! I’m really excited about this new material. Keep doing what you love to do. o/

  56. Ted_Koppel on December 11, 2008 at 9:07 pm

    I love studio pictures/video’s, more please. The song sounds solid, and i loved the lead guitar on minutes to midnight and seeing it live (and by live i mean on the Road to Revolution DVD) was even better. Kudos

  57. LiyanaNaznim on December 11, 2008 at 8:50 pm

    whoa.AWESOME. i love it.
    can’t wait for the new album.

  58. Aqua101 on December 11, 2008 at 8:34 pm

    Mike, I already put yr video (I got from YouTube already yesterday 10Dec). And it is on my YouTube Page under my favourite for all LP materials : Thanks for the embeded sharing video. U should put more these type of videos on yr blog, Mike. We are so happy to see the “real” you & perhaps all other LP mbrs under streaming video rather than pictures only. And plz have that instrumental sounds on yr next album. But, don’t throw out the Rapping of yours or the Screaming of Chester…we need to hear that part also. It will sound so “BLASTING & AWESOME”!!!! ;D

  59. spraypaintNinkpens on December 11, 2008 at 7:04 pm

    Please put this on the new record. Seriously this sounds better than most of minutes to midnight, and you just put this together?! Genius.

  60. rendezveous on December 11, 2008 at 6:57 pm

    dude this is awesome, wow i didn’t even know u guys were working on an album so soon
    sweet! can’t wait

  61. ThePrincess on December 11, 2008 at 6:50 pm

    The instrumental was good…the studio is good,you looking good ,that wedding ring is good too.. BRAVO MR shinoda..but we think ..this is not too good.. if our beloved Miss Chanel no:5 saw THIS !!!!!

    PS : we told you P dont open or giving a comment to this blog before we tell you that is save for you… damn !

  62. ShadowerLiltani on December 11, 2008 at 6:35 pm

    Yahoo, first comment! Awesome… The instrumental is still pretty in my opinion, but I also find it very eerie, in a good way. Thanks for letting us embed it, this is so going on my blog:
