Thrash hits recently put this post up on twitter:

Do people care about gossip about the new albums from Linkin Park or Green Day? We've been eavesdropping again.

I'm assuming that given a couple of hours there will be some form of article up on their website here by the end of the day.

Here's hoping!

EDIT: Since posting that on twitter (it was also linked to their facebook) some comments have been posted on their status and they gave some interesting replies:

If what we heard is to be believed, Linkin Park have finished recording now, and have actually moved away from the electronic stuff on this new one.

Personally, I don't believe this to be true due to what Rob said in the chat on Monday, however maybe they have finalised the songs they plan to perfect for the album?

Also after a bit more discussion they then posted this:

While the record business in 2012 is a very different beast now to what it was back in 2000, we're sure the difference in sales figures/musical style between LP's earlier/later material might've played "some" part in their decision-making process.

This part sounds like they're echoing what was said in Kerrang last week/week before so could be interesting - as to how much credibility is behind their source I don't know but I suppose it adds to the speculation ;)

What does everyone think?

Thrash Hits are normally quite well informed. Difficult to to believe they've already finished recording, though- if it's true I'm sure we'll be hearing it from some other sources soon.

Remember that a rumor come true when more than one source report it. Like Rock Am Ring + new album comes this year rumor

As far as the band is concerned, I don't think album sales had anything to do with any change in sound that might have happened. All artists now-a-days know that low sales are a sign of the times (piracy), and that simply changing your sound isn't going to magically get people to buy your music. People just don't buy music like they used to. However, as far as the geniuses at Warner are concerned...I don't know how they might feel.

I really don't think they changed their sound because of sales figures. I think they changed their sound because they wanted to. That's what I love about Linkin Park. They keep changing their music and experimenting. I can't wait for more info, too!

Topic? What topic? The topic about how we've been Mike-Rolled?


Thread winner.

So they're saying they're leaning towards the old sound again or what? As long as it isn't Dubstep.

There's no way they're gonna go back to the old stuff until they do a back to the roots type thing, and it's still too early for that. I personally see them doing more rock-ish stuff, maybe in the M2M spirit but with everything they've learned in their career, maybe like a heavier combo of M2M / ATS? I could see them doing a heavier more electronica influenced Foo Fighters type of record.

Hopefully all the nu-metal obsessives will get false hope over all this talk of "old-school LP", and then be crushingly disappointed when the album isn't just an early 2000s nostalgia trip.

I love rumours and gossip leading up to an LP album. Most of it turns out to be miles away from the actual truth!

"Even the people who never frown eventually breakdown" ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I love QWERTY but not the versions available on LPU CD. I love the awesome version (you know which version I'm talking about)

 

LPA is the worst fan forum in the world.  Full of childish idiots, memes and overblown signatures. Avoid at all costs.

I don't want them to go back to the old style. MTM and ATS are my two favourite albums. I don't really like to set expectations as to what I think it might be. I'm sure it will sound great.

I'd hate to see Linkin Park go old school just because sales aren't what they used to be. I would rather they put out an album they like and are proud of instead of songs like "Runaway" or "Hit the Floor" that they'll play once and never again. I'll always have a soft spot for the "old LP", but I don't ever see Chester going back to his old vocal style. What reason does he have to scream? I'd like more rapping from Mike (ever heard that before lol) but I think I'll like the new LP record no matter what. They're "my band" and I'll always find something to like about their music, especially with Chaz & MS behind the mics.

I think it's already been clearly stablished that they don't give a fuck about album sales, that they're putting out whatever they want to.

To me, it makes no sense for them to return to their heavier roots. The music industry is a very different beast right now, and rock isn't really selling.

I have to say I strongly agree with you and many others in this thread. I try not to have any expectations of LP's music, I just sit back, wait a few years, and when their new album comes out I'm sure it'll blow my brains out with its epic-ness. I expect nothing less from this band now. Labels don't suit them.

"Robot Boy" is an auditory orgasm.

What band is still touring the world, played on alt rock radio stations regularly, still on a major label? ...Exactly.

Shame on Linkin Park for not creating brand new songs for every single show that they play.

If I was a famous musician I'd troll radio stations all the time.
