RogueSoul Posted February 6, 2017 Share Posted February 6, 2017 While today we could have expected some information about the band's upcoming music video (as it is slated to be filmed today and tomorrow), we've gotten something maybe more exciting: Linkin Park is in their rehearsal space! Mike took to Snapchat to post a picture of Brad's T-shirt which dubs him "The Best Poker Player In Linkin Park," which Mike humorously commented "#FakeNews" on. What's most interesting in this picture is what's going on in the background - and we're not talking about Phoenix's photobomb (or the fact that Brad's holding a guitar). If you've been following LPLive for awhile, you'll immediately recognize the background. That's Linkin Park's rehearsal space, Third Encore. Normally, the band would spend time rehearsing a few weeks before they start touring... so could that mean we'll soon be seeing the band onstage? Looking back at past eras, the band being at Third Encore should mean that they will be on a stage in the coming months. Sure, this could be for their upcoming tour in South America to promote the new album in May, but that's still three months away - it may be even sooner that we see Linkin Park back onstage. In 2007, the band's big return following their two-year hiatus will recording Minutes To Midnight, they were in Third Encore in mid-March rehearsing new and old songs, and first hit the stage a little over a month later at the end of April. In previous years, the band has spent less and less time rehearsing there, but the start of the cycle usually takes about three weeks to a month to refresh them. They took quite a lot of time to rehearse for The Hunting Party cycle in 2014 too, for several reasons - they completely redid all of their gear AND they had to rehearse some songs from Hybrid Theory for the first time in nearly a decade for the Download Festival that year. Conversely, this session could just be the band rehearsing their new single for the music video - the day is still young, so there's plenty of time left to film. It does seem that there's quite a few crew members around, however. Could the band be gearing up to perform some TV shows or club shows to warm themselves up for the new cycle? Whatever the case, the band is getting ready to perform their new music, so some promotional and warm-up shows will definitely get the band going after a long time in the studio. If any dates pop up, be sure you follow LPLive on Twitter and Facebook so you find out about them first. The band is teasing their new music slowly but surely - make sure you read up on that discussion here. The cycle is just about to start, who's ready?
