    Because bands do it all the time. They'll do shows before an album is released and play one or two new songs on the tour.

    It's a form of promotion.

    Remember when LP went on tour before MTM? Of course, that was months before, but that's when they played QWERTY.

    ^Considering this is 1242396820496 times easier than the last message, I think we're on the right track.

    Sorry for being practically every other post in this thread. I'm bored.

    I definitely agree about thinking that it wil be out before this next tour, but you just said that we knew it and it hasn't been confirmed.

    Sorry if I came across as a jerk.

    EDIT: There hasn't been a vuvuzela joke in this thread...

    "Falls la luminosité de var to onwðlof edastada sekaligus airean, that sería kuin de pracht come yang kuat. Lo sono mäktig, terra-zerstören tyd."

    I don't know why I didn't see this before, but I'm a dane and the words "de var to" is danish for "they were two"... It might mean something diffrent in some other language, idk.

    Again, off the LPU message board :

    "I'm still trying to put this into a more coherent phrasing that doesn't sound like it came straight off of Babelfish (if Babelfish had the ability to translate from multiple languages at once).

    luminosité - French, meaning "brightness"
    ontplof - Dutch, meaning "explode"
    edastada - Estonian, meaning "forward"
    sekaligus - Indonesian, meaning "simultaneously/altogether"
    airean - Spanish, third person plural form of airear, which means "to air." Being third person plural, it probably roughly translates to "they will release," in reference to the album.
    sería - Spanish, third person singular of ser, which means "to be," probably meaning "it is" or "it will be"
    kuin - Finnish, general connecting term that can mean "as," "as if," "than," "like," etc.
    pracht - German, meaning "splendor," "gorgeousness," "magnificence," "glory," etc.
    yang - Chinese, meaning "light"
    kuat - Malay, meaning "strong"
    sono - Numerous languages, meaning or related to "sound"
    mäktig - Swedish, meaning "powerful"
    terra-zerstören - Portmanteau of terra (Latin, meaning "ground/earth"), and zerstören (German, meaning "to destroy/ruin/corrupt"), which is probably meant to translate to "ground-breaking," especially given the fact that it's hyphenated
    tyd - Afrikaans, meaning "time"

    Putting it all together, I'd translate it something like this (and this does involve some personal interpretation, so it's up for debate): "At the end of summer, they will explode forward at once with a release that will be as magnificent and light strong. The sound is powerful and ground-breaking." I think "time" may be at the end for the last part to be translated as "most powerful and ground-breaking yet" or something to that effect.

    Obviously that's not perfect, but I think it makes it pretty clear that while decoding this message was pretty cool, the message itself is pretty much a generic "New LP album at the end of summer, it's gonna sound awesome!" hype-building thing."

    CBLP, it's better to just multi-quote instead of double/triple-posting. :)
