    These guys must be working really hard, because I easily got the impression from the Phoenix chat that they weren't that close to finishing yet. Although if Mike's mid-2012 estimate is the band's goal, it means they may be farther along than we thought. I don't expect the single till closer to April though, because they haven't done any promotion on the album apart from sporadic interviews yet.

    :D I may have to jump on the summer 2012 bandwagon if this keeps up. Mike seems pretty sure.

    Just a thought on The Raid - I'm aware that it's been picked up by a number of international distributors, for example, the distribution rights for a UK release were bought by Momentum. However, given that it was specifically Sony Pictures in the US who tasked Mike to write a new score, I'm wondering if Mike's score might be exclusive to the US release, which would be a shame :(

    I should add, I'm sure the previous score was cool as well, but obviously as a Linkin Park/Mike Shinoda fan, his soundtrack is the primary selling point for me!

    ^^ That's actually a really interesting question. Would be a good thing to ask Mike next twitter/LPU Q&A he does.

    Oh yeah :D !!!

    It's freaking awesome that Mike said 'mid-year' himself. No way I expected it to arrive this soon...

    Let the summer, and the best album of the year, loose then :p

    Cue speculation as to when we'll start seeing all those cryptic puzzles and such again.

    This comment made me look like an absolute fool in my managerial accounting class. I was laughing uncontrollably and had to get up and leave.

    Thanks, LPA.
