So take this with a VERY VERY tiny grain of salt, and there is no real source but just throwing this out there. It's very left field of this particular station (the top 100) to be even posting about this but if the band are truly aiming to have the new album out this year, Q4 sounds about right.

LINKIN PARK have been in the studio and they're almost done with a new CD!

According to sources close to the band's label, WARNER BROTHERS MUSIC GROUP, the iconic band has about four more songs left to master before being 'mostly' finished' with a new CD for the label which should be released in the fourth quarter of 2012 - meaning close to Christmas.

Labels like Warner Brothers are into their first quarter now, which began before the holidays.

Additionally, the Warner Music group, which consists of REPRISE RECORDS as well as the WARNER label, are expecting new releases from GREEN DAY in 2012, and they're excited about the profile of one of their new artists - NEON HITCH - who is currently featured on ASS BACK HOME by the GYM CLASS HEROES.

Seems abit fast for me, LP usually take a long time to make a new record and I wouldn't be so sure if they didn't take time on this to be honest. Maybe would be something like a remix album or maybe something like CC? I dunno but I would hope for a new album soon.

Doubt this is true. If they've already written, recorded, and nearly mixed and mastered a new album, I don't see why they would wait to release it toward the end of the year.

You'll wake up when I walk out
Isn't that the way it plays
The leaver leaves, the stayer stays
You wouldn't make a move so I made mine
Isn't it a pity, I wish you were really in it for life

Agreed. There are often large gaps between album completion and release, but for an album that, by this evidence, seems like it would be ready in February to be released in the fourth quarter is bizzare. My bet is they're aiming to finish just before the summer tour, which would make a fourth quarter release sensible.

MLK.com said in the LP @ RAR/RIP announcement that the new album is coming in Summer 2012. But still, this is interresting just because of the fact that it seems to be that people around Warner tell the "sources" different dates, however I see Summer 2012 being legit.

You don't have an album almost completely mastered a year before it's released. Mastering happens in the weeks leading up to a release. So either the band is far from being done with mastering, or the album is just going to randomly come out in a month. I'd like to know what "sources" Hot 99.5 has.

I would love it if they would do it like the LPU. Suddenly it's here without any announcements. But Warner wants money so they have to do promotion. I think it comes out after the summer tour/shows where they'll promote the album.

My bet is May, maybe April. Because everytime that Linkin Park played in Rock Am Ring they have a new album to play on the stage. 4 songs to end the album mixing sounds good to me. They need to do some promo stuff and all that kind of things. Lets wait for official comments.

If all the rumours about the album being finished soon, and only 4 more songs being mastered. I agree
For me, it's all about getting back to the real "hybrid theory" — not the album with that name, but the idea that the six guys in our band have drastically different tastes in music, and the blending of all those sounds into one is exactly what we built our band upon.

He just pointed out that they weren't a reliable source of information. He didn't actually CONFIRM that the rumours were true or not.

Well played, Mike. Well played.

I don't think the album will be out that early...I was honestly expecting a late spring release in 2013. Time will tell.
