Not Yet.

June 24, 2010

Our puzzle hasn’t been solved yet.  I expected that would be the case.  It’s not an easy one, but it is rewarding.

Maybe you just need to search harder.

    se trata del net art?

  6. Comedy Dave on June 26, 2010 at 2:29 am

    All translates too… Luminosity falls, they were two, explode forward at once, air that serious, as the beauty come, strong are the powerful, destroy time.

    no idea wut it means; maybe luminosity falls is sumit.

  7. Betty108[: on June 26, 2010 at 12:29 am

    We have all the pieces to this puzzle, just no way to connect it. We are tightening up every line, i’m never resting the question if I am outta my mind. Together well make it!! I saw what Mike said about a puzzle and I automatically thought of that song lol

    On a serious note, I think a lot of progress has been made(:

  8. Trickian on June 26, 2010 at 12:25 am

    If the radiance of a thousand suns
    Were to burst at once into the sky
    That would be like the splendor of the Mighty one…
    I am become Death,
    The shatterer of Worlds.

    Robert Oppenheimer used this quote, originally from Bhagavad-Gita

  9. DUMBerdore on June 25, 2010 at 11:54 pm

    The ans is:A Thousand Suns.

  10. Martha on June 25, 2010 at 11:27 pm

    Quantum Theory?

    Mike Come onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

  12. christian(: on June 25, 2010 at 10:32 pm

    so the message said at the end of summer so September 23

  13. BIgJohn on June 25, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    Im still guessing September 21 for album release because : September 21 1958 U.S. performs nuclear test at Nevada Test Site or 1955 U.S.S.R. performs nuclear test or 1954 1st nuclear submarine, USS Nautilus, commissioned

  14. Florencia on June 25, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    “Trinity” was the name of the first nuclear test on 16th of July (1945) It was managed by Robert Oppenheimmer considered the “Father of the Atomic Bomb” Oppenheimer later said this name was from one of John Donne’s Holy Sonnets.
    Maybe is it the name of the new LP album?? Am I doing right?! Please, tell mee!!

  15. Trina on June 25, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    It sounds to me as if he is referring to the end of the world and all that 2012 stuff that people are talking about. But who knows. Ha🙂

  16. Sarah A. on June 25, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    CONFUSED but hopefully close woo thanx Trina

  17. zahralp on June 25, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    i think i’ll just sit back and watch every one crack this one for me lol,,,,,,(or i’ll google as u hinted us!X)

    thanx 4 the wonderful helpful hint u just gave us mike jezzzz how helpful can mike get “just as mcrc was quoting Oppenheimer, Oppenheimer was quoting as well”😄

  18. Nate on June 25, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Mike posted this on Linkin Park’s website in the post about the message – Part 1:
    Read. My comments below.

    LucidoFelice said:

    Alright, here’s the full blown recap. Mike posted this picture to replace the old message:

    It’s obviously a message encoded in binary, so when someone painstakingly transcribed all of the 1s and 0s into a binary translator, they came up with this:

    “Falls la luminosité de var to ontplof edastada sekaligus airean, that sería kuin de pracht come yang kuat. Lo sono mä5´ig, terra-zerstören tyd.”

  19. vishnu babu on June 25, 2010 at 8:10 pm

  20. TOI on June 25, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    LINKIN PARK: DECODE…. Maybe it makes sense at all… By what we’re doing right now would be the title to the Album..

  21. chaddd on June 25, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    ok so i googled “trinity test” and what came up everything about the testing of the atom bomb in WW2, but i also hear your guys talking about a supernova?? atomic bomb=explosion…….when a supernova happens there is a=explosion……..something to do with an explosion???……idk im tired im just throwing crap out there, and btw where are you guys getting july 16th from??

  22. Daniele on June 25, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    The newest name of the album is “Atomic Bomb” or “Trinity Test”? Tell us Mike! And the message #1 is really the HT Soldier? I’ve said that was! :’D

  23. Poushali.. on June 25, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    I bet Mike Shinoda and the other band members are laughing out loud…
    😦😦😦😦😦

  24. gimix on June 25, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    i dont think they would call this album trinity as this is thier fourth album
    but hey you never know maybe july 16 is the right answer i think it is… maybe the first single comes out that day

  25. mconnelly42 on June 25, 2010 at 6:31 pm

    I wrote that it was the 11th, but it was the 16th. My bad. But I still think it is the new release date.

  26. mconnelly42 on June 25, 2010 at 6:28 pm

    I think I got it.

    If what others have said is correct, then it IS about the trinity test. This does fit the whole Minutes to midnight = doomsday click thing.

    It is pretty obvious now that I think about it.

    The date of the trinity test was July 11, 1945.

    I don’t think it was released 65 years ago, but I think July 11 is the release date.

    Mike said that searching fir it would be worth it, and I hope that I got this one right

  27. Sabino on June 25, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    I think something important will happen on july 16

  28. Marco on June 25, 2010 at 6:01 pm

    The tiredness above this picture makes me even see your skull of Glorious Excess in the message!!! lol…

  29. joe on June 25, 2010 at 5:55 pm

    TRINITY. The name of the new album is trinity! Mike, what did i win!?

  30. Xero Theory on June 25, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    The trinity test idea seems a little off. Mainly because minutes to midnight was about the exact same thing.
    01101100011010010110111001101011011010

  31. Shenzi Sixaxis on June 25, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    A few of us at the LPU Chat room think we’ve got it. Not sure though…😛

    Oh, and the next time you decide to stumble over my name, record it! lol

  32. Sara Bee on June 25, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    “If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one…” “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”

    i guess that…person was right.

  33. PurplePride on June 25, 2010 at 5:23 pm

    My guess is that the album will be called the Trinity Test or just “Trinity Test”, it just seems to match, hybrid theory, meteora, minutes to
    midnight, trinity test

  34. Stephanie on June 25, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    I have no idea if the fans are on the right path, but keep the game going! I dig the fact that you guys interact with us without doing it behind some marketing ploy. Some may say it’s a wild goose chase, but I call it fun. NOW GIVE US THE ANSWER!!!! haha!

  35. Tozcano on June 25, 2010 at 5:08 pm

  36. Larry Shen on June 25, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    It would be funny if this was binary music, and it’s the first single or a song off of the album. Problably not. Actually definitely not. I dunno… Mike, there’s only two types of people in the world. Those who know binary and those who don’t. Well, with that said, you and I are opposites.

  37. Myrtle on June 25, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    whoah! is this really the real mike’s?

  38. TheGlueLpFan on June 25, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    I’m kinda torn apart…part of me thinks that you’re just sitting in front of your computer laughing and the other one thinks that this is actually something serious.So yeah…I’ll keep trying I guess…

  39. Mickelillo on June 25, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    I think that it sounds perfect but… Mike’s mind is really really hard to understand😄

  40. Anonymous on June 25, 2010 at 4:54 pm

  41. Kel on June 25, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    I think what the LPA came up with sounds very good and is probably correct…

    Now we just need Mike to check the new comments!

    I will keep looking in the mean time though…

  42. Jenn on June 25, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    CHECK THE LPASSOCATION THREAD RIGHT NOW. kthx :]

  43. Gd4ever on June 25, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    Shinoda, seriously. Green Day would never put their fans on a wild goose chase like this. You could learn a lesson or 2 from then on how to treat ur fans properly.

  44. Marco on June 25, 2010 at 4:06 pm

    Mike! everybody on LPA are waiting for ya hehehe

  45. Yassin on June 25, 2010 at 3:42 pm

    I think I’ve got it. The two, meaning you and chester, will explode forward (in the media), at once meaning soon, in (on) the air, and the beauty (of the music and the album art), destroying land and time (the internet belongs not on land nor time). Please reply if I got it right. Good luck with the tour Mike

  46. Brandon on June 25, 2010 at 3:41 pm

    Mike, LPAssociation has the correct quote.”If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one. Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” – Bhagavad Gita, but spoken by J. Robert Oppenheimer after the first atomic bomb explosion.

    The site of that explosion was called Trinity. Google “Linkin Park Trinity,” and you find a very interesting new t-shirt.

  47. Tim on June 25, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    http://www.lpassociation.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30947 maybe something to look at.

    by the way alot of people are posting what they posted the first time and the wrong translation is coming up. mike said enough

    also the rough translation is “Brightness falls, the two explode forwards at once in the air, and the beauty would be strong and powerful, destroying land and time”, not that “At the end of summer, they will explode forward once again, with a release that will be magnificent and strong. The sound is their most powerful and ground-breaking yet.” it’s an interpretation not a translation.

  48. Leon Barclay on June 25, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    Something made me realise something today…i asked my mum what the puzzle looked like to her, and she replies
    “You can see what you wanna see with that love, it just does peoples head in, crap like that does.” whiched stunned me for a second, and made me realise, that this is truly what mike shinoda is trying to teach us. I believe these image may have something to do with it, but it may be pointless to look for the answer as only the publisher may know it. I think because everyone is getting desperate and minipulative over what the puzzles show, this is why people see different things, they want to see them… Thanks mum…

  52. linkingabo on June 25, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    maybe we should make a Fall Of Brightness on the picture.. I tried it, but didnt get anything except a thing on the left side, which I would say is Mike laughing😀 …at one point I see there Mike´s face´s lines

  53. Rafael on June 25, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    SUPERNOVA!

  54. Johnathan on June 25, 2010 at 2:08 pm

    Something about Falls of Brightness being the first of many to explode onto the air….The music is powerful, destroying land and time?

  55. Reloaded689 on June 25, 2010 at 2:03 pm

    it’s binary music I just need to find some thing to play it with??

  65. DORITA - LP FAMILY on June 25, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    better than the first one “At the end of summer, they will explode forward once again, with a release that will be magnificent and strong. The sound is their most powerful and ground-breaking yet.”

  66. Alice on June 25, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    Maybe sth like this:
    If brightness they were to explode forward at once air, that would as the beauty come strong. Are powerful land-destory time.

  67. Timothy on June 25, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    this new album there coming up with
    sounds like that new bone thugs album “Uni5 The Worlds Enemy

    At the end of summer, they will explode forward once again, with a release that will be magnificent and strong. The sound is their most powerful and ground-breaking yet.

  69. Omega on June 25, 2010 at 12:07 pm

    so Mike, has it been figured out yet? Is it the whole Super Nova or Black Hole thing?

  70. Soxman Dan on June 25, 2010 at 11:47 am

    Try decoding this backwards???

  71. dbslpfan15 on June 25, 2010 at 11:39 am

    My guess is that I agree with the theory of a supernova, but what fits even better is a black hole. After the explosion of a supernova, particularly a big one, the result is a black hole. It fits perfectly into the riddle . . . think about it.

  72. Kamil on June 25, 2010 at 11:29 am

    Mike we think that is the best translation out , can you tell us if this is true ? “At the end of summer, they will explode forward once again, with a release that will be magnificent and strong. The sound is their most powerful and ground-breaking yet.”

  73. GuilheLP on June 25, 2010 at 11:18 am

    Supernova!

  74. Mr. Producer on June 25, 2010 at 11:13 am

    “She Falls luminosity was to explode forward aerate well, that would as of of splendor come strong. Are mät’ig, land-destroy time.”

    or

    “Her falling luminosity was to explode foward in air, that would of came strong and splendor. Are ____ to destroy land and time”

    im not sure google translate probably wasnt a good site to use

  75. Brandon on June 25, 2010 at 11:03 am

  76. Dawn on June 25, 2010 at 11:02 am

    I think the message means that the new album is coming out January 10, 2011. I’m most likely utterly and completely wrong…

  77. SilentK on June 25, 2010 at 10:56 am

    Someone try translating the message vertically instead of horizontally
    or
    translate the message reversed. Start from the end.

  78. ChRiZzZ on June 25, 2010 at 10:56 am

    Nice Gabo , if it’s the result i Hope we becoma our next puzzle

  79. Gabo on June 25, 2010 at 10:53 am

    here u r:

  80. Caitlin on June 25, 2010 at 10:48 am

    we didn’t translated the text right or just don’t see everything?
    eventhough you’re not gonna answer this, that question is really bugging me ^^
    btw really excited to see you in Hamburg is there gonna be a LPU M&G? ;D

  81. Jayson on June 25, 2010 at 10:38 am

    I tried to get away over the image to try to have a 3d view, I guess that is related to that, I could not identify anything yet. But I think it has to do with it, maybe the new cd comes with a dvd with 3d edition espicial. (Would be awesome!)

    hey mike if I get close to the answer I deserved at least an autograph while you’re at the show here in Brazil in the SWU, is not it?😀

Obrigada por isso. Sei que não terei retorno nesta msgm mas fico contente por poder participar do seu blog. OBRIGADA MESMO MIKE.

  85. NEOSHIDA on June 25, 2010 at 9:40 am

    Woa… Mike updated his blog everyday…. Awesome!

  86. Fiorella.BS on June 25, 2010 at 9:30 am

    mike are you sure it is not what Lp American got? “Al final del verano, todo explotará con un lanzamiento que será de un gran esplendor y fuerza, como la luz. El sonido será potente y rompedor como no ha habido hasta ahora”

    That’s spanish, but in english is something like “At the end of summer, everything will explode with such power and brightness as light, sound will be powerful and ground-breaking like never before”

    if it’s not that i give up x_x

    There are 1144 0s and 1s in the image.

    1144 is 11 x 13 x 2^3

    so it could be an 11 x 13 or 13 x 11 8-bit image.

    man for understanding those messages you need to have an iq of at least 140😀
    i hope he will reveal more in the following days …

  94. RashenZ on June 25, 2010 at 8:34 am

    What on earth is this !!!???? I hope someone will translate it completely cuz i’m not good at puzzle😛

  95. farkenstain on June 25, 2010 at 8:31 am

    -LP will come to some countries next year? I look from the translate of binary codes.😀

    -there a lil-bit-of a sunshine. closed by a planet. is it earth, mike?

  96. Sualk on June 25, 2010 at 8:23 am

    The first binary message says : “you know what mike? I like turtles”

    and then it moves onto another message that says : “Be sure to drink your Ovaltine”.

    Only God knows what this means?

  97. jes on June 25, 2010 at 8:23 am

    lol.. maybe some of us dont care enough to try and figure it out.

  98. addicted to LP on June 25, 2010 at 8:21 am

    I am stiil insistent that this is about your art. When we look at it with narrowed eyes, some images emerge through the numbers and they seem like slanted columns. I also see images like deers on the right side which is a bit shady.Numbers have different function here. Zeros are used for the bright side of the image and ‘111’ make the outlines of the image.’111′ number one is the only place where we can see the reflection of the dark background…:)))))

  99. pjay on June 25, 2010 at 8:19 am

    plz plz mike…tell all the lp fans the answer to your puzzle..!!!

  100. ChRiZzZ on June 25, 2010 at 8:15 am

    Barry , which part u decoded , maybe i can help u , have removed every second line but don’t get clear stuff , maye try sth other

  101. Barry on June 25, 2010 at 8:02 am

    I decoded part of it and you know what I got?
    It said: “you know what mike? I like turtles”

  102. boxe on June 25, 2010 at 8:01 am

    I don’t think it’s a binary term we have to decode – there are too many 0s and too less 1s.
    So maybe the 0s are just gaps and by linking the groups of 1s right, there can be the message.
    ?

    maybe it’s an image we have to decode… it’s possible? (don’t know much about computers)

  105. LuisBrazil on June 25, 2010 at 7:17 am

    HEY MIKE NEW ALBUM LINKIN PARK IS…….. ” SUPERNOVA”
    ………………………………………………

  106. Mike on June 25, 2010 at 7:01 am

    ‘The Final Frontier’ is the name of Iron Maidens next album, if the last message is a clue of some sort then this might have something to do with it.

    That album will be released on the 16th August, I doubt that will have anything to do with LP’s next album.

    Somehow i think this puzzle was made to look easy, maybe were going the complete wrong way with this.

  107. LPBekka on June 25, 2010 at 6:51 am

    When i look at it I’m reminded of those…erm optical things where you bring your face closer and an image should appear X3

  108. LPFreak on June 25, 2010 at 6:50 am

    I think, its like a picture with MS in the backround?
    Or something like that…with full of numbers to cover that.

  109. LachyRich on June 25, 2010 at 6:49 am

    Guys, I copied it into Google, and nothing came up. But clearly we have to search for something… This ‘Suspension Of Disblief’ theory is interesting, but I don’t know how someone got that. I wouldn’t mind that name for the album

  110. neil on June 25, 2010 at 6:33 am

    It is supernova.

  112. Steven on June 25, 2010 at 6:31 am

    I wonder if we are supposed to search for that number on google.

  113. Gunner on June 25, 2010 at 5:48 am

    brightness falls, hmmm, it’s a poem by Thomas Nashe isn’t it mike? :p
    even a Novel by Jay,,,
    then for sure it’s in winter, “the two explode forwards” guess it means that the number 2 comes forward, “at once” the number 1, then it’s 21st of september i guess,,,
    another solution , ppl try to look at the message, look where do the brightness falls on the message n try to translate the 1s & 0s where the brightness fall on them or somethin like that,,,

  114. Vini on June 25, 2010 at 5:42 am

    The summer end’s september 22…date of album?
    like say’s in the code…

    “At the end of summer, they will explode forward once again, with a release that will be magnificent and strong. The sound is their most powerful and ground-breaking yet.”

    See u in brazil, greats.

  115. PyRo on June 25, 2010 at 5:30 am

    BINARY CODE!!!! !!!!!!!!! AWESOME!!! that the name of the new album?

  116. Widya Rahayu on June 25, 2010 at 5:27 am

    It’s the code of a song on a CD, right? So if we ‘copy’ it somehow or decode it to the CD ‘language’, we can get the song! *hopes she’s right*

  117. adam on June 25, 2010 at 5:27 am

    Where is the scientist from the South Park ep. ‘Cancelled’ when you need him?

  118. Thomas on June 25, 2010 at 5:22 am

    Hello !
    I’m Fraench. I have maybe an idea. There are 1144 numbers. So 1144 is a multiple of 8. 1144/8 = 143 .So I think we have to translate each group of 8 numbers (which are in binary) in decimal. After, You divide the result by 8 the number you will find will be the number of he letter in the alphabet. That’s my idea.

    For example for the first octet :

    01000110 (binary) = 70 (decimal)

    70/8 = 8 (just take integer number)

    8=H

    (Sorry for my bad English, I hope you will understand)

  119. mikey on June 25, 2010 at 5:21 am

    i put it through a translator one line at a time and this came out:
    falls la l: µinosité de� @ìÂä@èÞHÛ�� 867³2²0¹º0da sekaligu� æ@ÂÒäÊÂÜX@è¡�Ð�Ì@ÈÊ@àä��¡Ð��½µ��å s9[« ¡qÆämíÍä

  123. Vengeance on June 25, 2010 at 5:02 am

    I’m pretty sure this is saying that in Fall they are releasing their new “ground-breaking” album.

  124. Petra07 on June 25, 2010 at 4:57 am

    This a coded message …(the system of numbers)
    Is this the detail of a lyric ??
    it is not possible to know this…

  125. New York's Pied Piper on June 25, 2010 at 4:54 am

    Is it the order of the ones? Like, ‘1101’ and then the next line-thing will be ‘1011’?

  129. TheCow on June 25, 2010 at 4:20 am

    The musical artist binary Code has an album called “suspension of disbelief”. If linkin park does the same, the will be sued…

  130. Anika on June 25, 2010 at 4:18 am

    Maybe it means that the album will coming out in october 1st

  131. Chris on June 25, 2010 at 4:09 am

    I have just found this on the the internet. i put in Linkin Park binary code into google

    and its came up saying the next single from Linkin Park will be called THE BINARY CODE “Suspension Of Disbelief”

    i think the new album is either going to be called The Suspension Of Disbelief or this will be there next single, but also maybe The Binary Code might be there new single or The Binary Code will be the album. But i think The Binary Code is the new single and The Suspension of Disbelief is there Album

  132. Fab from Germany on June 25, 2010 at 4:09 am

    I tried to erase all “1”s in the hope to see that something is written there…but it’s so unclear that I can’t find out anything interesting…

  133. Philipp on June 25, 2010 at 4:01 am

    i think its the release date of the new album, 01.11.10😕

  134. mercurycode on June 25, 2010 at 3:40 am

    When I minimize it in Photoshop to 30 %, i think i can see a word. It says “ZAP”.
    I’m not so sure about the Z in the beginning though, but the A and the P are clearly visible.
    I googled “binary code zap”, but couldn’t find anything interesting.

  135. scruff on June 25, 2010 at 3:34 am

    leave out all the rest was a clue and DONEY came up withhttp://www.imgdumper.nl/uploads3/4c2480aeaaa39/4c2480ae95277-solar.gif in july and august leave out all the rest was released so then release date should be in july to august

  139. Yatesy on June 25, 2010 at 3:13 am

    If you won’t tell us, then two can play at this game.

    what does this mean?

  140. Matt S on June 25, 2010 at 3:12 am

    does it mean the release date is 11/10/10

  141. CHAPS_LP on June 25, 2010 at 3:12 am

    you have eclipse on July 11, but I think that is to soon that LP would put album out. End of summer is September 22…maybe around that time?

  142. rahul LP on June 25, 2010 at 3:08 am

    i think that after converting binary to words, the different languages are the different countries that you’ll perform in the upcoming tour……

    and why have u given a link to google? what do we search?
    and does this message have a hidden image in it?

  143. masshysteria95 on June 25, 2010 at 3:07 am

    I agree with KC. Let’s stop trying to figure out what Mike is trying to tell us, so he will have to tell us directly. Even because that message doesn’t make sense!

  144. LPfan4ever on June 25, 2010 at 3:03 am

    try squinting your eyes i think i can see LP on the right side

  146. Marco on June 25, 2010 at 2:56 am

    Well, i don’t think it is a casuality you put that split of LOATR these days too. Something with space it has to deal with.
    I actually see a some kind of alien face after some retouching in that light on the left of the image, but it might be my eyes only…

  153. Rob on June 25, 2010 at 2:20 am

    I think it’s some kind of code maybe Binary code or smthng..It’s not so easy to encode.

  154. Shaun on June 25, 2010 at 2:11 am

    If all we’re required to do here is a translation, surely we’ve nailed it now?
    I’ve messed around with the image in photoshop, and not found anything though. I personally can vaguely see a face facing right in there, but that’s probably my imagination. If you minimise it to ridiculous levels, there’s also a pretty distinctive shape, but it’s probably a coincidence.
    Maybe it has something to do with the different languages used?

  155. LYRAx on June 25, 2010 at 1:54 am

    I think it has something to do with the eclipse that is taking place this weekend on saturday. its a long shot i think but it could be a hint to the new album name.

  175. kc on June 24, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    haha mike you are a tease.
    i think we should all boycott trying to figure out what these puzzles means and not reply to his posts so mike isnt entertained by our answers, therefore he’ll just have to tell us.

  176. TOI on June 24, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    Guys, try to listen pink floyd’s DARK SIDE OF THE MOON Album, that’s a concept album..LP’s 4th album is CONCEPT-BASED.. a bigger consistency, multi-tracked and more live-strings…

  177. sean on June 24, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    maybe a longshot but perhaps the translation of “Brightness falls, the two explode forwards at once in the air, and the beauty would be strong and powerful, destroying land and time” means that it will be out at the end of summer, and will be a double album. The music will have strong messages throughout and will be groundbreaking for lp🙂

  178. Dori on June 24, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    How is googling it supposed to help!? LMFAO

  179. EvoOba on June 24, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    You know what we should do? Call Charlie, the genious from the tv series Numbers, to solve this for us xD I’m kidding LOL We’ll get there eventually I hope…As so you know, I find this messages awesome and very entertaining. It’s a great idea so keep ’em coming😀

  180. Michael Gonzalez on June 24, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    I kind of see the number 4 in there on the left if you look closely but I know that won’t help. LP isn’t suppose to give us homework! XO!!

  181. orionwong on June 24, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    Falls la luminosité de var to ontplof edastada sekaligus airean, that sería kuin de pracht come yang kuat. Lo sono mäktig,
    terra-zerstören tyd.

    Falls = if (germ)
    la luminosité = the brightness (fr)
    de var = they were (norwegian)
    to
    ontplof = explod (afrikaans)
    edastada = forward (estonian)
    sekaligus = at once (indonesian)
    airean = air (basque – alpha),
    that
    sería = would (galician)
    kuin = as/both… and (finnish)
    de pracht = the beauty (dutch)
    come = as/both… and (italian)
    yang kuat = strong (malay).
    Lo sono = Are (italian) _
    mäktig = powerful (swedish)
    terra-zerstören = land(pt)-destroy (german)
    tyd = time (africaans).

    the sentence is hard to form…

  182. helen on June 24, 2010 at 10:09 pm

    actually if you look closely something is formed in the picture, only I can’t make out what!

  183. Guilherme LP-Portugal on June 24, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    SUPERNOVA!!?!??!?!

    Is the name of the album???

  184. Zach on June 24, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    How can it come out 10.11.2010 or 11.10.2010 when neither of those are Tuesday’s? Also, to my knowledge LP has never released a CD after/during the tour, it’s always before.

  185. HybridSoldier on June 24, 2010 at 9:52 pm

    So, after doing the whole translating the binary, and coming up with that mess of languages, and doing some photo messing with, the only thing this thing comes clear that everyone seems to be looking past is that it says “moremes
    sageco
    mingsoon” Or, More Message Coming Soon. AKA there are more coming soon to keep us playing! =]

  186. Rahman on June 24, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    is the album relesing on 101110 mike?

  187. Jesse Palma on June 24, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Christian’s idea seems pretty realistic to me.
    He said:
    “At the end of summer, they will explode forward once again, with a release that will be magnificent and strong. The sound is their most powerful and ground-breaking yet.”

    I like the theory of happinessbythekillowatt’s. sounds great to meh. but cmon guys we can kick this decoding’s ass and figure it out. Thnx mike for the fun of/from linkin park or the hype of the new album. we enjoy it even though we complain.😉 PEACE! \m/!!

  190. Lisette J on June 24, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Maybe it means that on the new CD is 10 or 11 songs and It will be out 11.10.2010 or 10.11.2010 .
    My idea .😀

  191. Fred Durst on June 24, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Guys I figured it out. Put on some 3D glasses if you have them and look at the image. You’ll see a secret message that says, “2010 the year of the cobra”

    I wonder what that could mean.

    Maybe I should type in the secret message in google….

  192. jwbes on June 24, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    K so maybe I’m way off, but if you put the isolated letters from the translated binary code into google and skip past all the hits from LP forums the first website is:

  193. Martha on June 24, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    Mkay, I guess I’m going to try this. I’ve found that binary strings consist of 8 digits. So, I should be able to copy the image, put it on paint, seperate the lines, and start putting the code into bits of 8. I got you, we just have to “search”. Now, I finally undersatnd why your game was called “8 Bit Rebellion”, or 00100000 00111000 00100000 01000010 01101001 01110100 00100000 01010010 01100101 01100010 01100101 01101100 01101100 01101001 01101111 01101110

  194. xGuy on June 24, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    Ok guys ….Listen ..it’s not the binary code ….look closely and watch onl “1” ..The “1” is in many positions but mainly diagonal wich means they form a letter..And yes they do ..It is just really hard to see..Binary code is just something to fool us ..Beacause we tough this would be easy..

  195. happinessbythekillowatt on June 24, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    Someone suggested this: “Brightness falls, the two explode forwards at once in the air, and the beauty would be strong and powerful, destroying land and time” while someone else suggested space science. When a massive star dies, it explodes and becomes a supernova ( extremely bright ) and it can eventually become a black hole ( where there’s no such thing as time and land or light ). “Two” and the use of binary code make me think of a binary star, a system of two stars where one might feed upon the other. They may merge at some point or it may lead to one of the two’s death.
    Could be some sort of metaphor…
    Too much Muse I guess…

  196. Matthew on June 24, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    take out all of the zeros and the ones should form a message they are all within each other diagonally and might make letters

  197. Ploatic on June 24, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    I would LOVE to see Mike’s face as he’s reading all of these comments.
    Heck I’m so pumped now, listening to some LP trying to decipher all of this and reading interesting comments. (and silly ones..:P)

  198. Seth on June 24, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    This might be totally wrong but i threw the pic into a photo editing program and change the lighting and outline the darker areas and it spelled MIA it looked like?

    Could this mean something (Missing in action)

  199. The Smart Child on June 24, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    Christian may be close on the album release date–Aug. 9 is a Tuesday, so it’s plausible…

  200. Cam on June 24, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    hey mike, read my post about the puzzle, i’m pretty sure i just kind of solved it, and if i did, tbh, it wasn’t that difficult

  201. Alexis Perez on June 24, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    maybe christian’s close! Maybe it has the album release date hidden in there!

  202. christian(: on June 24, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    OK I GOT SOMETHING ELSE SO
    THE 9 FOR THE LPU9
    THE 8 FOR THE 8 REBELLION GAME
    AND 10 CUZ ITS THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF HYBRID THEORY
    IDK MAYBE 9.8.10 OR 8.9.10

  203. Tahmid on June 24, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    Yo mike, release the album on the best time of the year. It’s better to postpone the release to next year than doing it in december. We want this album to be a BIG HIT.:)

  204. Adrian on June 24, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Why the LPA guys get all that intersting text?
    I just get this:
    ”What the Hell do you mean we haven’t gotten it yet? What else is there besides binary a”
    i’m almost sure that isn’t the message, is it? you are smarter than that,
    aren’t you?
    Please Mike stop doing this to us!
    We like mistery but this messages are disturbing us.
    Really, I’m sure you don’t know how is to be us, your fans, who don’t sleep
    just to discover more, something to believe on, so ansious
    to hear you and your new work againg

  205. SpikeGlueDymaxx on June 24, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    Yesterday I was in LP chat, and someone told me the meaning of those code. Tbh, I know nothing bout binary code. So Im still wondering what does it actually means. And, “Look beyond what You see.” that may help. Love it.

  206. Rob on June 24, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    HEY EVERY ONE, IF U MINIMIZE THE IMAGE & LOOK @ IT FROM A DISTANCE & CONCENTRATE REALLY HARD U CAN SEE SOME LETTERS THERE, I SEE LIKE A LETTER A & P, MAYBE SOMEONE CAN TRY IT & FIGURE IT OUT

  207. Cody on June 24, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    Christian figured it out, gj christian i got to brightness falls and then went to comments to see if any1 got it and u did, ty for saving me an hour🙂

  208. Sarahhhhhh on June 24, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Lol. I was typing the 1’s and 0’s into google, and it reminded me of drums…. Is that close to anything?
    Much love,
    Sarah

  209. Raven Shinoda on June 24, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    i see something behind the numbers , but i can’t figure out very well what is ,that it look like some kind of words…

  210. Livi R on June 24, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    *rips hair out*

    You all know that this is gonna be either outrageously difficult or ironically simple.

    Ahhh, no sleep tonight…

  211. PinkyLoulou on June 24, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    LMFAO, Tom Cruise.

    Maybe it’s both the binary and the shadowed space the image has if you look at it from afar. There’s ”something” there.

  212. EricAguigam on June 24, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    Maybe the new single will be in Binary form, when a song has two contrasting sections. Therefore, we can possibly see a single with two sections, and the two sections will differ in key signature, and possibly time signature and tempo. The instrumentation could possibly be different in each section. We do have 2 vocalists in this band, so maybe they will both take their own section, or will vocalize together creating a beautiful harmony that implies the new single will be beautiful, melodic, possibly even slow, yet explosive, powerful, and moving. It doesn’t have to be heavy to be explosive. It could still be soft and melodic.

    Or it could be the guitar tab for the new single…haha JK.

  213. KATHYxx on June 24, 2010 at 8:17 pm

    I wanna know what constitutes as solving it.

    Do you want an exact translation of it? Or the gist of its meaning?

    “If the illumination of inspiration exploding ahead collectively were released, that would be like the magnificence of the sun’s force. The sound is the most powerful ground-breaker yet.” my best so far.

  214. Austin on June 24, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    Look beyond what you see

  215. UmutK on June 24, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    Put the text in a binary translator, and this is what I got:

    What the Hell do you mean we haven’t gotten it yet? What else is there besides binary a

    Don’t know if it has anything to do with that, or if that translator is crap, as I don;’t know the first thing about binary, other than it being a bunch of 0’s and 1’s :p.

  216. Dri on June 24, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    I’ll have to call Tom Cruise, so I can solve this puzzle because it’s a mission impossible!

  217. RiskGambits on June 24, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    RE:christian(: on June 24, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    “At the end of summer, they will explode forward once again, with a release that will be magnificent and strong. The sound is their most powerful and ground-breaking yet.”
    This is still open to interpretation as nothing is confirmed at this point.

    If i was to interpret this, then i would get out of it “At the end of summer, Linkin Park will release a new ablum, that will be there most ground-breaking sound yet.” or maybe its my wishful thinking

  218. Omega on June 24, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    Gee, THANKS Professor Layton…

  219. persephonezkiss on June 24, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    This comment is for CRISTIAN(: who commented on the 24th, how in the heck did you even begin 2 figure that out???? I need to know cuz itz driving me crazy!

  220. Rockstarme-Anstice on June 24, 2010 at 7:47 pm

  222. M4LL0RY on June 24, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    Mike..I hope you know.. I am raging so hard at this new “puzzle.”

    MIKE SHINODA IS A TROLL.

  223. Rohit on June 24, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    isn’t it too obvious that we would interpret bionary code…i dont think mike wud hav made it so simple…!!!

    try decoding it backwards…or vertical row-wise or somethin…

    if u shrink the picture..u see some kinda pattern…some symbols or something….quite confusing..

  224. Olla Chaz on June 24, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    Thanks for the clue🙂

    Mike, there will be other messages, right?

    Please make the next one be your drawing. You draw something and put a hidden message there. Please? I love mysterious art😉

  225. 'Zak' on June 24, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    😄 Of coarse, google has all the answers!, we can probably just effing hear the album by looking it up on google. We are such dumbies. Thank God for google.

  226. sanchez-juan on June 24, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    i think the album release date will be on 8/24/10

  227. Naritsara on June 24, 2010 at 7:31 pm

    I,m hopeful that we can find a solution.

    I’m impressed with your smile.

  228. Brandon on June 24, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    i tried to translate it from binary code to text and this is what I got

    Falls hÂ@ØÕµ¥¹½Í¥Ó¤����Ù�È�Ѽ�½gGÆöbVF7FF6V¶Æ�wW2.L¬-Å��]Ù\¶°�5uin de àäÂÆÐè@ÆÞÚÊ@òÂÜÎ@ÖêÂè\@�ÞAͽ³yo#[£K9a£+�� kÓ+��§³�+q£Ë!

  229. christian(: on June 24, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    The binary code was translated to reveal a multitude of speaking languages for individual words within the sentence, that when translated again, roughly reads:

    “Brightness falls, the two explode forwards at once in the air, and the beauty would be strong and powerful, destroying land and time”.

    After much translation and speculation within the community, the most plausible interpretation could be read as this:

    “At the end of summer, they will explode forward once again, with a release that will be magnificent and strong. The sound is their most powerful and ground-breaking yet.”

    Of course, this is still open to interpretation as nothing is confirmed at this point.

  230. NoFace on June 24, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    Does the message indicate the theme of the new album? From all the hints, I think it’s something related to space science. A supernova? A double supernova?

  231. Vctor V8V on June 24, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    Then what is it Mike? Give us at least a clue or something! LP4E

  232. kementari on June 24, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    what would robert langdon do?

  233. Cassie on June 24, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    Mike, can you at least tell us if we are on the right track with binary codes or whatever? Or maybe give us another clue? That would be great. And I am a HUGE fan of yours(:

  234. luis guerrero on June 24, 2010 at 6:54 pm

    I like the rock and metal

  235. Julien-K Arg on June 24, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    Tan iluso, por dios! como piensa que nadie lo había resuelto… es muy obvio, ASCII en binario

  236. Alexandra Nofi on June 24, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    I think people have translated the binary code, but, they don’t yet know the actual meaning behind what it says😀

    “Falls brightness” is referring to the colors of Autumn. “Explode forward” is referring to a large amount of success, moving forward with something dramatic. The rest of the translation refers to the new sound. The new sound is meant to be very surprising, powerful, but also gentle, something which will carry volumes due to the softness of it. Kinda of like what Minutes to Midnight did, but, in a different way. Possibly not as aggressive.
    (Not that aggressive is bad).

    I think drinking my coconut mojito mix helped me figure this out.

  237. Halim Colson on June 24, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    Binary! Very clever. I had to learn binary in college. And THIS would have gotten me out of it, had I been able to translate it. Whoever does, you are the coolest computer whiz I’d love to chill with.🙂 Peace!

  238. cstebila on June 24, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    Decoded the binary to an alpha script, and than plugged into Google translator to get multiple languages. Took all of those, put them translated to English rearranged the words, to get a slightly garbled sentence.

  239. MetalValue on June 24, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    Ffs search what? xD Tried to decode it, different people have got different translations from the decode, decoded by dividing the binary up into sections of 8 then decode in binary translator on the net, then once everything was translated (Took ages), it came out in something weird but definitely a message since it included commas and stuffs, but seemed to be made up of different languages, I searched different translations people got but nothing on google came up, nothing significant, tried to search the binary itself, but nothing really even the messed up translation from the binary, and still nothing.

  240. Kelsi on June 24, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    are you not even joking me?

  241. KJC on June 24, 2010 at 6:39 pm

    Hahaha Mike you are the best. I’m loving how you’re totally messing with all of us. I’ll be patiently waiting for the new music.

  242. Denise on June 24, 2010 at 6:39 pm

    This reminds me of the Matrix when I look at it. Love yall!

  243. Robert Boord on June 24, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    Lol. I got through decoding 5 lines of binary before I saw it. Kilroy was definitely there.

  244. Ricardo Fernandes on June 24, 2010 at 6:38 pm

    I have no ideia what this is

  245. Miih on June 24, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    too hard

  246. Mr. Hun on June 24, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    you’re killing me Mike S. !!!!!!

  247. Melissa on June 24, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    Its binary code and it translates into “Be sure to drink your Ovaltine”.

  248. andrea on June 24, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    Mike. I didn’t know this album would entail homework.😛
    I’m to tired to think any harder on it now, tomorrow I have the day off nd I will renew my efforts!

  249. Frances on June 24, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    now if only u had posted a message like that when I was taking computer science. we had to learn binary code. I would have been able to at least attempt this. kudos to whoever gets to translate it first

  250. Chinoda White on June 24, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    Falls brightness (french) they were to (norwegian) explode (afrikkans) forward (estonian) at once (indonesian) air (Basque), that would (portugese) as (finish) the beauty (dutch) come strong (malay). Are (italian) powerful (swedish) land-destory (portugese-german) time (afrikkans)

  251. lpfmfan on June 24, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    LOL, I totally love how I tweeted about to people to stop posting “come to [country]!!” or “Mike you are AWESOME!” and you RT’d but people keep going. And going.

    Annoying. Please guys, post something worth reading. -.-

    Anyway, Mike are we on the right track? Like Brightness Falls..etc. or something?

  252. EpicLinkinPark on June 24, 2010 at 6:31 pm

    Google Translation :]
    Haha, I am still working on the code Mike

  253. KevinMc on June 24, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    Hahahaha damn

  254. son of a noob on June 24, 2010 at 6:30 pm

    mike u r insanely awesome c:
