    Moments ago via twitter, Mike Shinoda posted a mysterious tweet that began heavy speculation among the fanbase that another puzzle was underway:

    This was later followed up by this tweet from LP's Social Media Marketing Manager Adam Ruehmer:


    May 8th Update: Mike Shinoda confirmed via Twitter that something big is coming this week and it's not the BURN IT DOWN video:


    This suggests that something big is about to happen involving promotion for Linkin Park's new album, LIVING THINGS, set for release June 26th and is already available for pre-order here. Another puzzle may even be underway as we speak. What do you the fans think this means? Could there be something hidden out there and we are expected to go find it? Post your thoughts on the LPA Forums!

    I think there will be easter eggs hidden on the website, and they could probably contain, video, audio, even deconstructed parts of a song like on the BID game. When the new site was launched I asked Uprising Creative if they were gonna put easter eggs on the site, the ommitted that part of my tweet and only said "thank you!", responding to my feedback.

    Oh God. I'm not sure I'm ready for this. Sounds like it's going to be a big one. [Insert "that's what she said" joke]

    Well I'll lay out the facts we know.

    - It's a scavenger hunt so multiple pieces of something must be found that leads to the final objective
    - Press Release of the album has already been released so that leaves music videos, original footage, song snippets, artwork, random
    - It's big and tough meaning the prizes should be even bigger
    - The new site was revised by the same company who created the puzzles

    My guess is it will involve the BID video. Maybe release it when we accomplish whatever they have in mind. I can't see it being another song because we're already going to get one with the Share to Win program.

    Well folks, time to start tearing apart the recently relaunched LP.com and look in the code, as well as anything the band has put out the last week. Clearly the answer is already out there, otherwise Mike wouldn't be asking people to be "scavengers".

    GO FORTH AND PROSPER LP FANS.
