    Mike Shinoda surprised fans with an impromptu LPU Video Chat today in the late / early hours of April 14th. Although brief, Mike went into a little detail about what fans can expect in the coming days surrounding the new album.

    mike: You know the album title already right?

    - Mike teased fans about already knowing the album title, referring to the heavily speculated "LIVING THINGS" name that is circulating the Linkin Park community.

    mike: And you haven't seen the cover.
    mike: And you don't know the release date(s)
    mike: That image you saw for Burn It Down is the single cover.
    mike: Tour announcements: Monday.

    - Mike confirms tour announcements will be coming this Monday.

    mike: (Many) album release dates: Monday.
    mike: BURN IT DOWN: Monday!
    mike: Some places are even going to start going on presale (the album) on Monday.
    mike: Not everywhere though.
    mike: I have no more info!
    mike: Deluxe - I don't know yet

    - Mike also goes on to say we can expect the album preorder information on Monday, along with the album becoming available in some online and retail stores too.

    mike: Loveline: we're going to be on twice
    mike: Don't forget to read that SPIN article. I think it's pretty on-point about the new record

    - Mike says that Linkin Park have two scheduled appearances on Loveline, one being Monday, the other not announced yet. He also praises the SPIN article on the new album, saying it was "on-point"

    Monday is shaping up to be a crazy day for Linkin Park fans. We will have the full WORLDWIDE premiere of BURN IT DOWN at 6AM PDT | 9AM EST | 2PM GMT, followed by NEW ALBUM title, cover and release date, preorders going live at http://linkinpark.com and other retail outlets, upcoming tour announcements, Loveline and so much more. Also, don't forget there will be a LPU chat with Linkin Park sound engineer POOCH today at the following times.

    10AM PDT | 1PM EDT | 6PM GMT

    Make sure you wake up early Monday and check linkinpark.com and LPAssociation often, because it's shaping up to the biggest day ever in the Linkin Park calendar.

    Not by the band. It can be 100% correct but as long as nobody from the band has announced it it isn't confirmed.

    Thanks for the Credit. Glad I could give some Info. Mike was genuinely excited and super thankful to all the fans on the chat.
    I felt as though if he could have he would have stayed for hours but must have been busy. Its not like he is a Multi-Million Record Selling Artist or anything!

    No, thank you! I was actually in there myself but didn't put what he was saying down, thanks for the summary! Yeah, he seemed really positive and happy to be there. In fact, that's how all the guys seem in the build to this new album.

    It must be the whole "they're finally comfortable" with what they're doing that has them so excited.

    I was stoked to see him answer some of my questions. Its hard when everyone just asks him to come to their country.
    But he answered my question about the Deluxe Album, The Artwork in the Background. Just makes for a more in depth Chat.

    I'm pumped for their excitement - makes my ears tingle with anticipation!

    Not that I can recall. In the past they took it slow, they would wine us and dine us occasionally, eventually leading up to that big day. With this album cycle they're just fucking us in the face from day one.
