    Do not know when will they announce it, but I can tell - I can't wait any more! They're killing me with this! Wondering how is everything gonna sound like and look like. For sure it rocks! I can smell it.
    So, ... hurry up guys, people are f... nervous.

    I do find it rather annoying to lie to fans, for hype or not. I understand that a lot of fans must be highly annoying at times, but I feel like you sign on for that when you became famous.

    I'm not all out raging or anything, but I do feel it is a touch of a dick move.

    Look, I may be annoyed like the rest of you folks but it's not like the band did this on purpose. In the course of one day the band had the studio meeting, a meeting with their label [not confirmed but likely due to announcing album details], and an all day video shoot. When you have that much on your plate...an announcement takes a back seat. I'm confident we'll hear something today or tomorrow at the latest.

    Yeah, but the brats moaning about how every day they go without another album is a "slap in the face" generally seem to be a cut above (or below) the usual annoying fans.

    Well, he had time to write a blog post. Unless the announcement is actually some multimedia thing (unlikely if it was to be in a quit twitter) then I don't see why they couldn't have just typed it out instead of typing out an excuse as to why they didn't tell us.

    I understand you don't was us to all descend into an LP bashing frenzy...but I don't think we need to make excuses either. You seemed to agree the twitter excuse wasn't true and they just want to build hype. I find that a bit of a dick move, you may not, but it seems that that is what happened either way.

    Honestly, I think most big bands probably have a subset of similarly pissed off extreme fans. I understand they are annoying as fuck, but I just don't think we have much reason to believe that LP have it worse than bands of a similar profile.

    And if they do, it is probably because they take longer to release anything than most bands <_<

    People need to understand that he probably never intended to make the announcement via his twitter. He was just being ironic and teasing the fans. My bet is the announcement will be announced pretty much the same time on linkinpark.com, mikeshinoda.com in a press release kind of format. Then it will just spread like wild fire.

    According to BILD (Germanys biggest newspaper) the album is coming out in September! There was an exclusive preview of the new record held at the Warner Music Headquarters in Hamburg.

    Yeah, that's been speculated since yesterday. Now we're just waiting for the official announcement.

    Please be careful with BILD... i know it is a huge magazine, but it shoots a lot of bullshit at times. I am german too, my mother used to tell me they lied a lot in the past on many articles. And the article about LP seems to me... well... a bit clichè and superficial. Not saying is wrong, but don't accuse bands of delayings if others writes down things just to sell more paper...

    Sounds like bs to me. They don't preview albums that far in advance.
