Has anyone ever considered this? Mike just told MTV that they are at the half way point as of May 1st. So they really started working on this right after Mike released the rising tied, which was five and a half months ago. So that means according to my guesstimate, that the album should be released around late-October of this year. I just checked my calendar also, and October the 24th is on a Tuesday this year. Tuesdays are when albums are released in the United States... October 24th will be the six year anniveriary of Hybrid Theory. Wouldn't that be an awesome day to push the next album out?
