  1. DyLaN_SmAdA on April 26, 2009 at 8:44 am

    Wow, what I would give to record awesome music and have tons of fans.
    Your music is freaking amazing, and I for one can’t wait for this new music to come out.

    Musical Geniuses… are in the pictures above these comments.

  2. DemonicGoth on April 26, 2009 at 3:43 am

    awesome =D

  3. jackagainstthemachine on April 24, 2009 at 5:47 pm

    second pic down it looks like carrot top is standing behind you. scary.

  4. Full_Metal_Ninja on April 24, 2009 at 4:06 pm

    Great pictures! Reading this blog definitely helps get through the day. Can’t wait for the new music!

  5. themightymouse on April 22, 2009 at 10:49 pm

    Mike, I’m not sure if you get around to reading all of these comments (since I know they may be mostly for the benefit of other users), but if you do, know this–I have been a VERY big Linkin Park fan, and have also become a large fan of YOU and all that you do. I think that all the things you guys do is magnificent and I would have to say that a large majority of other bands out there today could take a lesson from you guys. HOWEVER, having said that, I also feel that you have somewhat driven some devoted fans insane with the LACK of full songs released. I mean, waiting 4 years between albums? No doubt there are heavy contracts binding you to do your tours and such, but how about some EPs?

  6. Hawaii_LP_fan on April 21, 2009 at 10:50 pm

    LOVED the new studio pics! With LP’s busy schedule writing music, recording, your art exhibit, and the up coming summer tour…where do you find the time to keep your blog up to date? Only Sensei Mike can juggle all pins without skipping a “beat”. πŸ™‚ Thanks Mike! Susie

  7. Aditya_the_warrior_within on April 21, 2009 at 3:54 am

    great .. nice pics πŸ™‚
    thanks for the update expecting the album eagerly

  8. saif on April 20, 2009 at 10:57 pm

    we don’t want you guys to rush.. take all your time you need to make the record so we get to have the quality music which has always been your priority!!

    p.s: we need more of rapping as compared to MTM

  9. Gucio on April 20, 2009 at 8:55 am

    cute pictures Mike, I totally love the one with you and Chester πŸ˜€ and I have to say one thing – this studio is AMAZING! the colours on the walls, the lights, the atmosphere… I love it πŸ™‚

  10. lynndarwinharris on April 19, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    Can’t wait for that album!!! Thanks for the update!

  11. Ainur on April 19, 2009 at 8:22 pm

    hi Mikey. how are you?
    i writing you for the first time, and happy) i have request for you, please. can you arrive in Kazakstan? after Russian,
    your fans in Kazakstan cant arrive to Sn. Peterburg, because all tikets are finished. can you and your group give a concert in Almaty city (Apple city ^_^) please!!!! with the best wishes. Ainur (we love you!!) PS – my apologize for bad english and mistakes) I love you and your music))) (answer me, please)

  12. nillp on April 19, 2009 at 5:58 pm

    oh my.. great and exciting pictures; cannot wait to hear these songs..!!!!!!!!

    i loved all the pics.. my favorite is the 2nd one.. you and Brad are so lovely..! thanks for posting! πŸ˜‰

    @HMF, i don’t think that if Chester doesn’t post on his website is ’cause he doesn’t care with his fans.. i think that he’s just too busy with DBS and LP.. mainly because he has been postponing DBS’s album release for several times.. so i believe that he’s working his ass off to give us both cds as fast as he can! so, don’t act like he doesn’t give a shit to his fans because this isn’t true.. he proved the opposite several times; especially when he did almost the whole show with his broken wrist!

  13. mshcooper on April 19, 2009 at 8:17 am

    It’s really great that u keep uptating us! ^^ the picture you said really seems like u’re saying bad things about him xD love the one where you with Chester! Keep it up! =)

  14. HMF on April 18, 2009 at 10:01 pm

    Aww! U guys are awesome!! Chester looks so cute in the first pic!!<3 Can't wait for DBS!!

    PS: Tell Ches to make a post on his website. He hasn’t posted any info about DBS or what’s he’s up too. We haven’t heard fron him since last year!! But I’m glad ur keeping in touch with us. Shows how much he cares about his fans!! Lol jk

    Shave! Shave! Shave!

    Mr. Hahn, Brad, Rob,… all are shaved (at least somehow), so look good again (and shave!), at least somehow!

    Beards are ugly!


  19. Camelgirl on April 17, 2009 at 7:08 pm

  20. tpbarbosa on April 17, 2009 at 11:54 am

    I’m so curious to listen to this song you’re all working at! It might be very good πŸ˜€
    Damn… I really cannot wait for the new LP album to get released I hope it’ll be kick ass :p
    I’ll be surely looking for DBS when it comes out! I know Chaz will make a wonderful work on this one too πŸ˜€

  21. Fredolen on April 17, 2009 at 11:13 am

    Mike, I look forward to listening to your new label record.
    I have listened to your demo songs since two months ago, so it kinda helps me not to be so anxious waiting for your new album.
    You rock, guys.
    Chester, if you album is in mixing process, it means your record will be released soon, isn’t it?

  35. ThunderStrike on April 16, 2009 at 6:52 am

    Rob looks like a professor in those glasses lol… And Brad looks…different….REALLY different =| Should’ve gotten him to shorter his hair some more πŸ˜‰
    And if Chester’s mixing the DBS album then that means it’ll be released soon. Woohoo!!

  36. Shinodabestfriend on April 16, 2009 at 5:25 am

  39. DRUMMERDALZIEL on April 16, 2009 at 4:31 am

    Good to see you guys all working hard, and liking the new hairstyles on some of you. Long hair for Rob, and afro with no beard for Brad (you should try and get some straighteners to it, that would be interesting!) But Chester on bass? Madness I tell you!

    Keep it up guys, heres hoping you’ll have something new for Sonisphere…

  40. ReRe on April 16, 2009 at 2:42 am

  45. Noonetohearme on April 15, 2009 at 9:39 pm

    Everytime you guys have a new album you’re working on, it always has the same intense feeling on me. It’s like……..I’m waiting to hear the next song, any song it could, and it will be awesome no matter what. You guys have such an affect on so many of your fans that it’s the same way to a lot of us.

    When I first heard got word from my brother around 1 in the morning about What I’ve Done (and the video) being on iTunes, it was like life changing. I will remember that night for the rest of my life cause the new LP music was so……I don’t know the word……………………..REFRESHING! Want you guys to know that you play a major role in my life and will always buy your music.

  46. asianotter on April 15, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    Good to hear that you are working hard. Thanks for the update on Sunrise and LP! And thanks for the pics. too!

  47. tinkerbella26 on April 15, 2009 at 4:35 pm

    Awesome Mike!!!!!!! Thank you so much for keepin us fans in the loop.. You guys rock!!

  48. NataliaForgotten on April 15, 2009 at 2:51 pm

    There’s a place for me in heaven and I didn’t know about it, hah! Loved the pics. πŸ™‚

  49. Chasy on April 15, 2009 at 2:47 pm

    lol, that view to Phoe looks more like “Ew, dunno why you’re in the band…” No offend at all, lol. But great news anyway, studio looks stylish and a lot stuff is in there – kinda creepy that you all and photographics and staff are in there, does not look thaat huge.
    Glad to see those beauty pics, keeps up the work so we’ll have a new record on the tables soon.

  50. keineAhnung on April 15, 2009 at 1:50 pm

    LP land?…sounds cool…can I come and live there? ROFL

  51. mack on April 15, 2009 at 1:32 pm

  54. luciana on April 15, 2009 at 12:21 pm

    wow:(…you’re so…gorgeous?you’re amazing:((((

  55. murry on April 15, 2009 at 12:03 pm

    Fierce. Good to see you guys seem to be having fun. That makes for the best music, I think.

    And, I think I speak for most of your female fanbase, as well as a few others, when I say tell Brad I like his hair.

  56. JTang on April 15, 2009 at 10:26 am

    i’m always gloriously excited to see photos from ‘LP land’ πŸ™‚ …but who takes the pictures?

  57. RedD_aka_Fluke on April 15, 2009 at 10:14 am

    I like to see the process go on! Waiting for new album! =)

  58. Jasma5 on April 15, 2009 at 9:44 am

    Hi MIKE!!!!you’re great and your songs are always more beautiful. I hope to come and see you in zurich, I’m Italian and we all want one of your concert in Italy!! πŸ™‚ I Love you!!!

  59. relieff on April 15, 2009 at 9:39 am

    in my personal opinion this record will be better than minutes to midnight cause mike will more participe in this project (cause last time was more on fort minor) and chester will less participe (as he is going to release his project) don’t know why there are some lights around the mic and other stuff is it Christmas coming? xD

  60. Sintia on April 15, 2009 at 9:27 am

    hey mike! Hope all is well with all of you and your family. πŸ™‚
    Not sure if its the camera or what but Phoenix looks skinny….but in a good way. hehe
    Brad got the Fro back!! That never gets old. πŸ™‚
    Glad things are progressing. Can’t wait to hear Chesters solo album.
    Thanks for the pics and update. Its always good to hear what the status is on the new LP album. I believe it will be good. Keep up the hard work (all of LP) and take care.

  61. Macce4189 on April 15, 2009 at 9:05 am

    Hey Mike, its great to see that you all still alive… xD I trust in your fu**** Talent. Go on, man!!

  62. PippoPappo on April 15, 2009 at 7:52 am

    “Lots of music going on in LP land these days…” Yep, that’s what I wanna hear πŸ™‚ Thanks for the update and the pics! Somehow, judging from the photos, the atmosphere in the studio seems to be very relaxed…am I right? That’s good for work and I am sure you guys have some great stuff for us – well, LP Quality as always πŸ˜‰ My fave pic is that of you and Chester…I hope we get to hear “that song” on the album, I am getting curious about it, hehe. And wonder if in the end you guys will end up with kinda like the first demo of it again…

  85. Sharisse on April 14, 2009 at 10:10 pm

    Thanks for keeping us updated on the progress of the new album. I’m really excited to hear what you guys have been working so hard on.

  86. ShadowerLiltani on April 14, 2009 at 9:08 pm

    poke Wow, you are posting so many updates about this. Granted, it’s not a ton of information, but you are showing us you’re doing something. I can tell you are very excited. You know what’ll happen though, right? I’m sure you’ve been in this situation before, when you finish some art, get really excited to show it to people as quick as possible, and you get the most fucked up critiques ever. Don’t like, change anything that you are doing, keeping going in the direction you wanna go in, just be warned that people are gonna probably say some fucked up things. You’re excitement tells ME this’ll be awesome, from one artist to another.

  87. analoggirl on April 14, 2009 at 8:51 pm

    I love seeing pics of your studio, ‘en proceso.’ Thanks! Don’t have us waiting too long for the album, Shinoda. πŸ˜‰

    Great Mike! Thank you so much for the update. Can’t wait ’til the new album comes out man. Are you singing in this one too? Hope you are! Btw, do you know at what time will be the chat with Phoenix? You guys posted only the date on LP’s website…

    My favorite pic is the one you’re with Chester. Looks like you were creating something great together.

    Take care Mike, hope you’re doing great! See ya!

    and this is a pretty awful day cuz i have an entire 10 page essay to write due tomorrow that I haven’t started, but the mere existance of this post and pictures makes all of that completely insignificant and transforms THIS day, April 14th 2009, into awesomeness.

    Thank you Mike, thank you.

  120. JoeyDC on April 14, 2009 at 1:39 pm

    Bless you, Mike! πŸ™‚ The photos are great, and it is pretty cool of you to involve your fans so much in the whole recording progress. I’d say my favorite picture is the one with Brad and you – Brad looks so naked now in his face and a lot younger too ;). Looks like he is kinda saying to you: “Dude, are you sure you know what you are doing?” Can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to your album! Have fun, guys.

  121. nataku on April 14, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    good to hear that you’re working hard (; cool photos!

    Mike, thank you so much for the info and photos. I love that you keep us updated. And it’s so great that you keep posting about Chester’s solo album. It feels like very, very good friends πŸ™‚ Hope you all had nice Easter. Enjoy the process, I know the results (of both records) will be amazing!

  128. PankakeMunky on April 14, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    thanks for the update on LP land. sometimes i feel like your descriptions on updates make us feel like on the survivor panel and we have to decide on who to kick off the island by judging pictures, like the one with you and phoenix. we can almost yell, “hey, mike! we see you slacking off in that picture! work harder!”

  129. soyuneik on April 14, 2009 at 12:32 pm

    lol, you talking to me? Eh, well it applies anyhow. I’m at seventeen fails. (they’re not getting by me) Yea you should see my “studio”. Like you have nice white lighting and pretty shiny things…. Mine is more like, haha, cardboard boxes colored in to look like I have something. “Yea man I got the Sp 1200, box edition” ( ripped up piece of cardboard with a picture of the sp taped on the front) ;P

  130. JackShinoda on April 14, 2009 at 12:31 pm

    good music that is happening there.
    that here we are anxiously awaiting the new album. hey mike these photos are great,
    good to see that besides work hard enough you can have fun.
    good work guys…. xD

  131. rockermeg on April 14, 2009 at 12:15 pm

    Yayyy!!! More news from LP World.
    Oh mai God if there was a “Linkin Park World” like as a themepark…man that’d be so awesome. I’d just live there =D
    You’re all looking good, Chester looks a little tired. Probably from the multi-tasking haha xD Maybe he needs a break…
    Duuude! I think Brad’s hair has reached it’s biggest
    Well good luck with everything!!!
    (So,what,that bassline was OK?)

  132. renny on April 14, 2009 at 12:07 pm

    what a bunch of uggo’s

  133. linkinladie328 on April 14, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    Do you guys “Play a round or two of pool between sessions?” and enjoy the “Modern lighting accentuates the studio?” hahaha πŸ˜€ if i came over and asked to see you guys, would i be able to go in? LoL

  134. miKer0cks on April 14, 2009 at 12:04 pm

    Pure awesomeness!!! That’s all I have to say!!! These pics are amazing…That t-shirt is really cool and it looks nice on you πŸ™‚ As I can see from the pics you guys are really having fun at studio despite the hard work πŸ™‚ You jam on you instruments, talk…that’s really nice πŸ™‚ I can also see that Brad’s hair are getting to the ”hairlmet” style again hehe…Is it just me or Phi started to wear caps more often?

    Btw you still have the lights up πŸ˜€ Cool…They make the ”LP land” look awesome πŸ˜€

    My cousin got Protools 8 the other day to make his music easier…I have to say it’s a cool programme!!! I finnaly got to see how you guys make music πŸ˜€

  135. thenewLinkinPete on April 14, 2009 at 12:03 pm

    Ah, great news!! Maybe you could tell a bit about the gear youΒ΄re using? Anything new, instruments or programming or something? ..or would it be possible to have something new up already at Sonisphere? Hmm, maybe I wonΒ΄t count on it then, hehe.. see you in Finland in July!

  136. dianlucas on April 14, 2009 at 11:51 am

    Beatiful pics and great news. Thanks Mike and LP.

  137. RachaelLP on April 14, 2009 at 11:51 am

    Love seeing photos of you guys getting on with the new album. LP land sounds pretty cool as well =D. Can’t wait to hear the new stuff, keep on it =).

  138. Emiily on April 14, 2009 at 11:44 am

    Can’t wait to hear the new πŸ™‚

  139. todraw on April 14, 2009 at 11:41 am

    Good to hear u’re workin on the album xD an about the lights they can keep em up so when x-mas comes they don’t have to put them up again xDDD

  140. LrP on April 14, 2009 at 11:33 am

    seeing pictures of you in the studio is so cool…

  141. Curiosa on April 14, 2009 at 11:32 am

    Dude, you guys still have your X-mas lights up?!? lol It’s April! lol

    Good to hear you guys have been keeping busy, I just hope this new album is better than MTM. :)~ Take care Mike.

    @Kalini: sorry it’s a bit late but I just replied to you πŸ˜‰

  142. Anstice on April 14, 2009 at 11:31 am

    Awh! What happened to Brad?! D: He doesn’t look like a horrible mix between my dog, Pete( and Chewbacca anymore!! And I agree about your face in the last one. You look like you’re having a very pensive moment, trying to decide whether or not you like the song, what you’d like for dinner, and whether or not to get up and go take a crap. However, it’s still cute =)

  143. MusicIsHealthy on April 14, 2009 at 11:31 am

    Hey Mike πŸ™‚
    the pics are very great β™₯ you all look very good πŸ™‚
    I’m so exited about the new stuff, it will definitely be awesome πŸ™‚

    Greetz β™₯
