A few days ago, caught this gem on XFM Radio (London), regarding a new Linkin Park album on the way:



  1. Victor on June 26, 2010 at 9:07 am

    the link said that the rapping wouldnt sound like Mike’s previous rock-rap type, but im quite worried that the rap might sound like the MTM type,dont get me wrong, im not sayin that MTM isnt gud. All i hope is that this album would be way beyond MTM, MTR and HT.

    cant wait for d album =D

    LP4LIFE !!

  2. nwefvnewvjn on June 24, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    yea i agree with the guy’s comment on the top, none of the albums sounded the same except for hybrid theory and meteora, but those 2 had their differences, and to suggest the minutes to midnight sounded like the other 2 is insane! it was drastically different than HT and meteora, and had a new sound and style, still sounded like something LP would do but sounded nothing like the other 2, and btw M2M was my favorite LP album πŸ™‚ i loved the other 2, but that one had to be my favorite

  3. linkinparkette on June 24, 2010 at 9:08 am

    there was nothing wrong with the last album. if u dont like it go find another band. linkin park got a lot of new fans from that album. i didnt leave from that album. lp had me at hybrid theory.
    reading the interview got up hyped. there is going to be new rapping and its going to be the single.. when does it come out 😦

  4. Curiosa on June 24, 2010 at 7:18 am

    Why does this seem like dΓ©jΓ  vu? Didn’t you guys pull the same stunt for MTM. I’m not falling into the hype cause last time I was disappointed by MTM. smh

  5. 4_my_head on June 24, 2010 at 2:07 am

    He,he, X’D
    Chester will be rapping and Mike will be screaming. Cool! XD
    How would that sound like.

  6. Nar... on June 23, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    I’ve been blackbirds of 8-billion,i like that

  7. jovertop on June 23, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    uh f***ing can’t wait!! xD

  8. dani on June 23, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    ¬¬ no entendi MIKEEE no entendi tu respuesta!!
    soy una bruta
    saludos XD

  9. jack on June 23, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    i hope that this new album is way better than the last one.

  10. M Shinoda on June 23, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    Your rumors and gossip are keeping the internet alive and perky. I don’t know what the blogosphere would do without you. Keep up the important work.

  11. Phil on June 23, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    Could you possibly verify the validity of this release date?

  12. Fred Durst on June 23, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    Is it true that on this album, Chester will be rapping and Mike will be screaming? That’s what I heard.

  13. Souneik on June 23, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    You missed the party yesterday in your LP chat room. [giggles]
    Yea. He’s probably down with THE SCENE. Or got paid by someone else in it.
    You know all about them right? I dunno. I see very promising and creative methods of getting more exposure… using the threats to an advantage. I don’t have the fan base to start doing any of this…. But there’s places that even you guys don’t reach.

  14. Kiara on June 23, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    I found the info on twitter some days ago. I was very excited to know at least a few details about the new album.
    Please give us more news, we want to know more!!!
    Regards from Chile πŸ˜‰

  15. Daniele on June 23, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    yes, i’ve read that quote many days ago, but in trully we have to get a surprise for the release album date.. every sites post that will be on September 24, but I want to you realease before this date. We are not prepared to decorate the new songs for your show here in Brazil, though. LOL

  16. Fatima on June 23, 2010 at 2:07 pm

    I want LP album to come out on August 4th…’cause it’s my birthday! lol πŸ˜€ that would be the best bday gift xD

  17. Alexandra Nofi on June 23, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    I listened to that a few days ago. Totally a diamond in the rough ;D

    I’m sure the person responsible for the website is going, “HOLY SHINODA!!! MIKE SHINODA WROTE ABOUT MY WEBSITE!!!” Kind of like what I would do if you ever decide to visit my blog site, for my writing, which I mention here frequently on a regular basis, LMAO XD Since I have satirically tortured you for two years straight, it’s only fair you get to do the same to me πŸ˜›

    Just for the record, your wife is part of my group on LPN, “Writers Unite”, and she seems to be having a grand old time over there. We’re happy to have her.

  18. orly? on June 23, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    Dude they are nu metal!! Their last album wasn’t but ht and meteora were!
    You call yourself a lp fan….

  19. dylan thomas on June 23, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    HAY MIKE, is IT TRUE that the ALBUM WILL BE RELESED 24/9/10????

  20. Michael Gonzalez on June 23, 2010 at 12:54 pm


    They never were nu metal. Do some research before placing your opinion about someone else’s work. New album is going to be great regardless. TRUE LP fans will cherish it no matter what.

  21. oriente on June 23, 2010 at 12:53 pm

    both the cd will be released first in network …one thing that you can’t stop

  22. Mark Travis on June 23, 2010 at 12:10 pm

  23. jes on June 23, 2010 at 11:55 am

    I know I shouldn’t..but I lol’d @ INeedTime

  24. INeedTime on June 23, 2010 at 11:33 am

    Let’s hope the new album won’t be crap like the previous album… I’m expecting some great NU metal tracks in this one

  25. Ezio on June 23, 2010 at 10:34 am

    I’m already dead when your album is released…Mike! Hurry up!

  26. Jesse on June 23, 2010 at 9:59 am

    its gonna be out on the 24th August

  27. MargaretPyrekPolandFan on June 23, 2010 at 9:08 am

    Mike, can I work for You as a guard ?
    I will got a gun … or it’s not a good idea.
    Anyway it will be fun xD
    I will be able to hear new album … but I can wait πŸ™‚

    Greetings from Poland. We are waiting for You πŸ™‚

  28. rockermeg on June 23, 2010 at 8:15 am

  29. Pytt on June 23, 2010 at 7:46 am

  30. Julien-K Arg on June 23, 2010 at 7:44 am


  31. Aditya_the_warrior_within on June 23, 2010 at 7:30 am

  32. Gna on June 23, 2010 at 7:29 am

    Awesome! Does that means the album is gonna come REALLY SOON?
    anyways… I’m sure the wait is gonna be worth it =D

  33. So... on June 23, 2010 at 6:46 am

    So why don’t you just tell us when the new album is on the way then we won’t have to play detective to decifir static messages and speculate whether or not what this dude said on his blog is accurate or not.

    But i guess theres no fun it that if it’s just handded to us.


  34. Retsiger on June 23, 2010 at 6:17 am

    Given that you call it a “gem”, I guess this is not true then, right ?
    Anyway I don’t really care, I already know my ears will spend a very good year !

  35. Alexander on June 23, 2010 at 5:56 am

    This is good… This is almost too good to be true! I just cant wait ^_^
    I hope this aint a trick, i love the way you guys always define your music range, you guys are just amazing in my opinion. I really hope this is true, cant wait for album/First single!
    Hope you will update us again soon ^_^

  36. ZAHRAlp on June 23, 2010 at 5:44 am

  37. adam on June 23, 2010 at 5:37 am

  38. Sunrise_Ashes on June 23, 2010 at 5:15 am

    I don’t know what to believe anymore, so I’ll just wait all patient like until the album actually does come out XD

  39. Lukas on June 23, 2010 at 4:49 am

  52. Jen88 on June 23, 2010 at 2:29 am

    Nice one! =D
    So cannot wait to hear the new album! Personally I think MTM was a huge change from the previous two albums, so am looking forward to hearing how much further you guys have pushed the boundries this time =D

  53. EvoOba on June 23, 2010 at 1:56 am

    I read the review and it’s awesome!!! I can’t wait to get the new album and listen to the new music πŸ™‚ Also I’m pretty curious to find out what the new LP live stage will be…Joe said it’ll be epic πŸ˜€

    Btw did you update your iPhone to the iOS4 software or you’re getting iPhone 4? I did update mine and it’s freaking dope! πŸ™‚

  54. Julian on June 23, 2010 at 1:45 am

    Nice to hear good previews before the release.
    Mike, please keep the album safe and don’t let it leak this time, I’ll buy it as soon as I see them in store =]

    Best Wishes

  55. Faty on June 23, 2010 at 1:17 am

    We’ll c mike, we’ll see. πŸ™‚

  56. LPHotspur on June 23, 2010 at 1:04 am

    Nice to see that you’re paying attention to LPlive. Cool. That’s the best Linkin Park fan site on the net in my opinion. No better place for news, setlists, etc. Been a member since 2008.

  57. SergSlim on June 23, 2010 at 12:48 am

    Great. I love that Mike linked to a post that I made on LPL πŸ™‚
    I rarely do add news there, but as you can see, they are pretty interesting πŸ™‚

    Thanks LESTAT for the heads up and recording, of course.

    On a side note, Did you like our new design, MIKE?

  58. Georgie on June 23, 2010 at 12:32 am


    When people say this stuff, do they actually expect people to go along with it?
    Especially when it’s with really dedicated fans who know the band well enough.

    But imagine if it was just Chester in a wig, messing with all of us Brits…

  59. Arsel on June 23, 2010 at 12:31 am

    Nice to know that you still take time to look around the web, see what your fans are talking about πŸ˜€ well..just… you still care about us i guess : >

  60. Dori on June 23, 2010 at 12:26 am

    Lestat is a hardcore STP fan, as am I! That’s funny, and ironic that you guys were mentioned during that interview….

  61. Misi on June 23, 2010 at 12:07 am

    define proggy :p

  62. andreas215 on June 23, 2010 at 12:03 am

  79. Marissa Cervantes on June 22, 2010 at 11:12 pm
