As promised, here’s the big announcement about the LP Underground 9 fan club package for 2010.

The package will be available in December. As usual, LPU members are eligible for in-person meet-and-greets with the band at shows and other special events. All members receive the LPU newsletter and collectible items, and access to the LPU fan club community…but the real gem here is the LPU9 CD. Here’s this year’s track listing:

1 – A-Six (Original Long Version 2002)
2 – Faint (Demo 2002)
3 – Sad (“By Myself” Demo 1999)
4 – Fear (“Leave Out All the Rest” Demo 2006)
5 – Figure.09 (Demo 2002)
6 – Stick And Move (“Runaway” Demo 1998)
7 – Across The Line (Unreleased Demo 2007)
8 – Drawing (“Breaking The Habit” Demo 2002)
9 – Drum Song (“Little Things Give You Away” Demo 2006)

For those of you who have been keeping track, “Across The Line” is a brand new, unreleased song. It was recorded during the “Minutes To Midnight” sessions, and was originally entitled “Japan.” We know a lot of the fans on the LPU boards have wanted to hear this song, in its entirety, for a long time. We’re putting it on the LPU9 CD for you!

    I’m so excited! This is gonna be awesome!! πŸ˜€

  2. JasonSparks on November 23, 2009 at 8:43 pm

    Mike! I respect you all as the great musicians you are but I just heard Across The Line and I can’t believe this wasn’t put on Minutes to Midnight. Who voted this one off the record?!! πŸ˜‰ (same with the extended A.06…this song is gorgeous)

  3. HB_DiViDe on November 23, 2009 at 11:54 am

    Mike man idk if you heard yet but this album is already leaked, found the songs on youtube lol its pretty dope across the line is very different than i expected but i like it!

  4. Senzaikyuu on November 23, 2009 at 2:12 am

    I know it’s kinda irrelevant but man plz for the new album you really need to put and artwork as cover.Normal photoshoots are lame and boring.Give us something like Meteora artwork.

  5. linkinparkette on November 22, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    wow! stick and move is the demo for runaway? o.o really thats a big change between the songs, both are still awesome, but wow, i would never would of known

  6. lalahlp on November 21, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!! xD xD

  7. Sintia on November 20, 2009 at 10:59 am

  14. junko1014 on November 13, 2009 at 6:58 pm

    Thanks tons, Mike! I’ve waited for “JAPAN” to be released for a long time!! It was worth posting lots of comments about the song on the LPU boards!!!Though the title was changed to “ACROSS THE LINE” which made me a bit sad cos I’m from JAPAN, I’m sooooo excited to get a copy of LPU9 ASAP. Once again, thank you sooooo much, Mike =D

    Dear mike,

    you might read this comment so I’ll behave.

    (insert freak out scene in here)
    Thank you soo much for these! and especially Japan!! you might have read quite a few replies by me on the LPUMB regarding Japan…this is a song I always wanted to hear, I dreamed of and now…..you are going to feature it on the new LPU CD…INCLUSIVE much more DEMOS!!!
    Danke danke!

    But one question: I thought all Meteora Demos have been destroyed by Warner…so is it true or just a rumour? Please answer that question!



  19. JosephLP on November 13, 2009 at 10:01 am

  24. dutchsoldier on November 12, 2009 at 11:07 pm


    Can’t wait! Today I told all of my friends and family this (, whom, for a great deal, give shit about music πŸ˜‰ ):

    ‘Hey bro!’
    ‘Know what…?’
    ‘LP man..!’
    ‘I know the TITLE of the new song they’re putting on LPU 9!!!!!!! It’s called Across The Line!!!”

    Always fun when you guys let us wait for a whole month :P! Thanks in advance though!!! Really curious ’bout the spirit of the song, but it only seems logical that it’s somewhat MTM-like..or absolutely not on the other hand because then it would have made the record?

  25. ghostly on November 12, 2009 at 11:06 pm

    Sounds awesome!!!Can’t wait to hear “Across The Line” and so many awesome demos!!!Thank you very much,mike~~~

  26. lynndarwinharris on November 12, 2009 at 10:39 pm

  27. PankakeMunky on November 12, 2009 at 4:25 pm

    i can’t wait for the new lpu stuff to come out. thanks for giving us the tracklisting. i was hoping you guys would do more of the mmm…cookies stuff. that was the best lpu cd i had but getting demos is also awesome too.

  28. DemonNoir99 on November 12, 2009 at 3:02 pm

    Cool , I’m in ..but I confuse this is about LPU9 or GBC Party ?? … although I don’t see the letters GBC on this topic πŸ˜› (seriously what the hell are you talking about dude ?? Hahahaha ) ..

  29. RicoRodz on November 12, 2009 at 2:47 pm

    unreleased song ?? … Awesome !! thanks for the info !!

    Edit : Agree with below , .. are you going to give a comment on GBC party ?? yeah i need that comment so much ( although i dont know why, LOL !!! ) but …still !!

  30. Madlen on November 12, 2009 at 2:18 pm

    Yes!Oh thanks for telling us which the song is:DThis without a doubt is going to be the best LPU cd so far (if we don’t include Hybrid Theory EP).Can’t wait to get it…oh btw aren’t you going to comment on the GBC party?:)

  31. rockermeg on November 12, 2009 at 1:02 pm

    Sign me up for another year of LPU. I joined 2 years ago and didn’t renew last year….. 2010’s LPU will definitely be the best time to join. Not saying that the other years were not… but yeah. πŸ˜€ Awesome stuff.

  40. stephrc79 on November 12, 2009 at 10:43 am

    Thanks Mike! I think I can speak for everyone when I say we really have wanted some truly underground music in the LPU these past few years and this will fit that perfectly. Can’t wait for renewal! πŸ˜€

  41. Joanna on November 12, 2009 at 10:33 am

    This will be a truly epic LPU cd. Probably the best since V1.0 aka Hybrid Theory.

  42. Barca2 on November 12, 2009 at 10:14 am

    Sounds awesome! I can’t wait to hear Across The Line (Japan) because i was one of many LPUers who wanted to hear it! Thanks a lot πŸ™‚

  43. nemi on November 12, 2009 at 9:30 am

    wow, this is SOO great news, i cant wait!! my LPU membership expired, so to know that LPU9 is right around the corner makes it possible so stand, now that i can get it soon!! im so so so so happy about this πŸ™‚

  44. cincybmxlpfreak on November 12, 2009 at 8:35 am

    SWEEET!!! Faint demo, Leave Out All The Rest demo, Figure.09 demo, Breaking The Habit demo, and Little Things Give You Away demo! I’ve been really wanting to hear a demo of all of those songs!! Maybe I WILL have to join LPU9. We’ll see.

  45. Juliett on November 12, 2009 at 8:25 am

    Dear Mike,
    I don’t know if I can apply to you. I’m not sure that anything can depend on you… But… Once you had noticed boys german band Panik as a talented musicians. And today there boys have faced with some problems and the group is breaking up. It is shocking for fans around all Europe… Could you do anything for them? We know, its just their decision… But if there are some possibilities to help this band… PLEASE… You are the only one person that we can appeal to. Thank you, from Music Lovers.

    I’m sorry that my comment is not conforming to topic.

    You can connect with me with http://www.myspace.com/471043999

    The track listing looks great! I’m glad they added more songs this year and I DEFINITELY can’t wait to hear “Across The Line” (a.k.a. “Japan”). I wonder what this year’s LPU theme will be though? Hmm…

  52. PinkyLouloulp on November 12, 2009 at 5:08 am

Can’t wait to hear this LPU CD I’m definantly signing up for the LPU this year!, Keep up the good work can’t wait for the next LP record!!!

  60. Milla_LP on November 12, 2009 at 2:19 am

  70. saif on November 11, 2009 at 9:40 pm

    I was dying for this… thanks mike!!!

  71. ShadowerLiltani on November 11, 2009 at 9:37 pm

    Ooh, nice, very nice. Me likey. I’m especially excited about the Meteora demos. I am DYING to hear Across the Line. Can’t wait to renew, this is gonna be way cool. I’m gonna warn you though, you know how mean the LPU is, and I certain fans will start screaming and hollering and saying shit about how Across the Line should’ve been on MTM. So don’t be surprised if that happens, because that’s how it always goes. LPUers always find something to complain about… Edit: Now I know how to say A.06’s name!

  72. caleb_bozeman on November 11, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    I think all the die-hard LP fans already heard Stick N’ Move on YouTube. But I hope it’s CD quality not the old cassette version.
