From HitFix exclusive interview @ Sundance 2012:
Linkin Park is about to announce 2012 tour dates, and Shinoda says fans can expect the active rock band's fifth full-length album "mid-year." LP's last LP was 2010's critically praised "A Thousand Suns."
There's also a video of this interview (link below).

Pop music? POP MUSIC?!?!?!?!?!?!? Aside from that, a new album mid-year would make me a rather happy bunny indeed. Seems to suggest that we're not just getting a few European dates, this is the genuine start of the next tour.

COME TO TAMPA YOU BASTARDS, COME TO TAMPA

mid-2012 would be amazing. That would mean a single in May or something, right?

We will wait longer. Not to mid 2012. A Thousand Suns also released late, LP so violated the contract with WB. Mike said in Meeting of A Thousand Suns - if I remember well. Maybe I'm wrong. New album I guess in winter season 2012/2013.

Linkin Park:
Prague 2007, Brno 2008, Munich 2008, Munich 2011, Warsaw 2012, Wroclaw 2014

Schedule:

Great news, very much looking forward to the record! Although it feels a bit strange to be talking about a new record so "soon" (in "LP years") after the last record. Good to see they're still committed to releasing more music, more often. I think people are maybe misinterpreting Mr Trapanese's comments about Mike/Linkin Park being "pop" music. He's contrasting his experience of working in the film industry to Mike's experience working in the popular/contemporary/modern-day music industry. He uses the term "pop" in a generic sense, as an umbrella term for modern music, where the focus on records/singles/radio differs entirely from his work of scoring music for motion pictures. I think he could have said this regardless of what pop/rock/punk/metal/hip hop/dance artist was sat next to him, simply to refer to the industry they work in. In a generic sense, Linkin Park music is "pop" (popular/modern) music. Beethoven, for example - not so much.

There is so much wrong with this I could... oh, it's not worth it.

Hit the nail on the head.
Just like to point out that my earlier statement was sarcasm, in case the capital letters and excessive punctuation didn't tip anyone off.

Can't wait to hear what this album sounds like. More so than perhaps any other artist (alongside Muse, perhaps), I genuinely have no idea what each LP record will sound like, and that's really, really exciting. I don't see how people could prefer bands to just churn out the same old thing over and over, where's the excitement in that?

the next album will be "harder" - you can't have duelling bass guitars on an album and not be as heavy as lead...
