    Read the edit in the post you quoted, for I put in some good news. They're technically 3 releases away from an out.

    I'm sure they must have a good reason for staying because they really are smart guys, which is also why don't understand but I guess I do at the same time.

    All the information needed. WB have Linkin Park signed on for a LONG time. Prior to Minutes they had 4 albums left. So even by that standard, they would've owed at least two more after ATS. However; they've since signed a new contract and thus probably are on the hook for at least 4-5 more. It's going to be a while.

    *EDIT*: "But the separation was a short one. Less than eight months later, Linkin Park and Warner Bros. reached an agreement that furnished an estimated $15 million advance for "Minutes to Midnight" and gave the label an option for up to five more Linkin Park records. Sources say the band's royalty rate was also raised to an estimated 20%, a high number as such things go."

    That would be 5 more after MTM, and the good news is that live albums and remix discs usually count as releases. So with RTR and ATS, theoretically Linkin Park only have to release 3 more records (studio/remix/live) and they can be out of contract if need be.
    How about the EP, Songs from the Underground? Does it count?

    That's all fine and dandy except nowhere in this entire thread did we even discuss the band dying in any shape or form. We asked how long as a band they would last until they broke up, which unfortunately is going to happen eventually. All bands stop performing/stop being together after a while. Even the ones that have been together 40+ years. This thread has nothing to do with them dying.

    I think he meant dying as a figure of speech, meaning breaking up.

    But even such, every band breaks up lol. Pink Floyd officially called it quits a few years ago, Aerosmith while not 100% broken up are kinda on hiatus right now, and The Beatles broke up (before Lennon was killed actually). So all bands break up eventually. Just some last longer than others.

    Haha yeah, I agree with you, just wanted to point out that he probably wasn't talking about the band members actually dying.

    I can tell you guys now that i am a teenager that loves ATS more than Hybrid Theory.(I'm sure there are more teens like me)
    Now i love Hybrid Theory and Meteora but i also love creative and experimenting albums.

    In my opinion LP will stay for a long time as long as they have creative juices flowing in them.

    Personally I love their old stuff, and still prefer and usually listen to it more, however, I am slowly starting to like their new songs and listen to them almost as much for the exception of robot boy. Being a fan since 01, when looking back at it, I really love how you can see the band evolve lyrically as a whole, from the music and anger that was in previous albums, to then a hope that is found in ATS and M2M, when that chester interview came out this past week, I know not all of it is true, but when I read the part where they will still talk about the hard times in life, but have that positive twist to it. My face lit up, and I hope that part of the album is still true, because this is a band that has helped me through a lot of tough times in life. As for the question, I am hoping for at least another 3-4 albums. Then maybe a world tour every few years. But that is just me being optimistic.
