    We are so close to finally hearing the new music! I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it! I'm about to lose control, and I think I like it! :lol:

    You mean like the Phone rip snippet from BURN IT DOWN in 2012?

    On LPA that is lovingly known as the potato rip. Because it sounds like it was recorded with a potato.

    The same potato rip that got us a C&D from Warner even though you couldn't even tell it was Linkin Park because the quality was that poor :lol:.

    You have no idea how much I wanted to write back to that C&D with a size 48 font, bolded, underlined, italicized...."REALLY?"

    There was absolutely no way that anybody would ever know that was Linkin Park. We even posted it with a disclaimer that we weren't sure of it ourselves. :lol:

    If anything, it confirmed it was a new LP track.

    Very true. Anytime we've ever received a C&D on a track we were unsure of, it almost always confirmed it's legitimacy.

    After all, if it's fake we'd just get something along the lines of 'Hey you guys, that's not a legitimate LP track. Not sure who it is, but it's definitely not Linkin Park'. A C&D from the label pretty much says 'you've posted a real song, and it needs to come down NOW.'

    Saw where Joe Hahn's DJ tech Warren Willis posted on fb yesterday "After 66 weeks, Linkin Park album number 7 is in the can, load out day and onto the live show..."

    Awesome! That means that the album is completed in terms of writing and mixing?

    I love how my hype train pic gets used every album cycle. It's almost as famous as the try the ketchup meme :lol:.

    And fantastic news. This means the band will likely start press on it within the next month, which means I will hopefully be able to get at least first impressions up for you guys within the next month or so. We can only hope :).

    I'm hoping for another LT/ATS style ARG. Or a scavenger hunt. Dropping "Guilty" out of the blue was awesome but it kind of took the fun out of what happened in the previous cycles, imo.

    The problem with those is that as exciting as they were for the fans, they took a lot of planning. Things didn't always go as smoothly as planned, and I'm sure Machine Shop would rather not have to deal with that heartburn again :lol:.

    Although, if you want my opinion: I'd love it if they would do another scavenger hunt.

    @Derek: you should organise a promotional scavenger hunt for them, grassroots-style

    It's actually always been a dream of mine to work for the band/Machine Shop. It's just a problem with me working on LPA and that being a conflict of interest.

    OH man mixing is done! I can't wait to hear the single in like a month or so(assuming it does). All I'm hoping for in this album is a long-ish song(7-maybe 10 min song) because if LP is focusing on lyrics this time around then they could possibly make a epic story song for the album closer. Honestly i'll be happy with what they make, but i'm just hoping for that! Glad to be back in a LP album cycle hype!

    Conflicts of interest aren't a problem as long as you're open about them, imo. It's when you try to hide it that things get shady.
