Linkin Park have announced that they are launching a new collection of merchandise for their Linkin Park Underground fanclub called the LPU Basics Collection. The LPU Basics Collection is a classic assortment of LPU branded merchandise tailored for the LP community. With this announcement, it was stated that as of now, there are no plans to release a bundle for LPU 18, so it looks as though the LPU Basics is the closest thing we will get for an LPU package this year. They did, however, mention that LPU digital memberships are available for purchase for $10 annually and will get you access to the website as an LPU Member.​

After 3 years of waiting, speculation, and false releases, the Mike Shinoda and Martin Garrix collaboration has (finally) been released as part of Garrix's new EP "BYLAW", which can be found on Spotify and other digital music services. In addition, Garrix has also released a music video for the track:

Talk about this song first started in 2015 when Mike posted this selfie with Garrix in London, where they were working in a studio. When we asked Mike about it during our podcast, he said that it might result in something or it might not. We would have to wait and see.

Portions of the song was debuted live by Garrix on March 16, 2016, when he played it during the Ultra Music Festival. Since then he has continued to play the song throughout his sets. Pierce Fulton later went on to play a different version of the song live and a version of this live version was recorded from the soundboard and leaked online as the official version. This was later debunked for the actual song.

Throughout 2016 and 2017 Garrix mentioned in various interviews that the song would debut on his album, or that it would be released eventually. In October of 2017, after the passing of Chester Bennington, Garrix gave the first real update on the release of the song
...due to the situation with Chester, I don't see it releasing anytime soon.
And, in April of 2018, he gave a less optimistic update on the release
Waiting For Tomorrow was together with Linkin Park and because of Chester's passing it's little bit hard to release the song. I don't know if we're ever gonna release it. I hope so, maybe one day. But not soon I think. We are working on it but I don't know yet. There's a lot of new unreleased music which I'm gonna release very soon.
But here we finally are, we have the song and it clocks in at 4:07.

A year has now passed since our world was forever shaken by Chester’s passing. Words still fail to describe how much Chester meant to us and how deeply we miss his bubbly, kind-spirited personality and his incredible talents. The shockwaves of his death still ripple through our fanbase as we continue to process our grief and reconcile that our friend is actually gone. Throughout this journey we have learned a lot about ourselves: about our resilience, about how amazing a family this community is, and about the importance of mental health awareness. And above all, we have strived to #MakeChesterProud in honour of his legacy.

A piece we wrote earlier in the year talked about how grief comes in waves: how the waves will keep coming, but we can learn to surf. Over the span of the last year, it feels like we’re starting to find our balance on top of that board. A lot of this can be owed to how we have banded together as a community to hold each other up at times we no longer felt we could stand. But we would be remiss if we did not mention the efforts of Mike Shinoda over this last year to help our community heal.

Mike, it has been incredibly inspiring watching you power through and channel your grief over the last year, from helping to put together the Hollywood Bowl celebration, to chaperoning us through that difficult night, to having the courage to candidly pour your broken heart out for us through an EP and then an album, to pouring it out again up on stages all over the world, to becoming a mental health advocate, to hosting live chats with your followers to check in with everyone… it’s been way more than we ever could have expected. You could have decided to keep your experience private and we totally would have understood. But instead you emerged a leader and truly what our community most desperately needed. Chester is so proud.

To the entire band: you are ever-present in our thoughts. We cannot imagine how hard this has been for all of you over the last year. The love, support and kindness you've shared with us is appreciated by everyone in the community. Just know that this community is here for you, as you have been for us these last two decades. We’re not going anywhere.

To Chester's family and friends: we wish you continued strength during these unimaginably difficult times. And thank you, Talinda, for being such a driving force for mental health awareness. Your commitment to changing lives and improving the conversation around mental illness is inspirational.

To Chester: We will keep you in our memories forever. Thank you for singing us through our hard times and lifting us up with your warm and generous spirit. You are greatly missed, friend. We love you.
