New Linkin Park album in mid-2012

Recommended Posts

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.

Fuck yes! I've been waiting for a long time!

Really?? How much longer than the rest of us have you been waiting since the last record?

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...

I got a feeling that this year is going to be incredible! Hopefully UK your dates get announced soon. I can see Rock AM Ring being the introduction to the new stuff all we can do is wait 'patiently'. =D

I never doubt the Rock am Ring News, and now Mike confirmed the release in the mid of the year. I'm really happy to be on Rock am Ring this year, it will be the first time for me there.

Exactly, agree with everything that was mentioned above.

When did they ever mention the album would be out before this interview...never. Rick Rubin said they were much further on in the process, he never gave a release date, I'm intrigued as to where you think they said this. Though of course I may just have not as paid as much attention to news over the past few months :/

Chester said, that he were shocked when they not realease an Album in 2012 ...so the goal to release an Album in 2012 was there.

 

Moreover with the rock am ring news, would announce a date...Summer 2012 which is mid of the year. But nobody wanted believe that..and now mike confirm this.

 

I think mid year is the deadline and the album will be out.
