    Okay. So we know the album has been mixed and mastered. Its done. We know it will be released on May 19th. And we know that there will be one more big tour announcement, likely an US tour. Still it was stated by Mike that the band still had a few surprises up their sleeves. What do you guys think it is?

    Personally I'm hoping for this: late march another single drops from the album with the announcement of an EP with 2 songs that didn't make the album. And allong with droppin that EP, the band will announce the US tour. Maximum hype at that point. Also the song that will drop will be more of a rock song so that it appeals to the fans that don't like Heavy and will make people wanna see LP live again. That is something that LP has never done before and would certainly surprise me. It would also make up for the long time between the announcement of the album and the releasedate. I know its not the longest, but there are almost no live shows in between, so LP might fall off everyones radar.

    I know this is a long stretch. So what do you guys think? What will be the surprise?

    The song I would like to hear is the one with Conner Youngblood experimenting together with Mike being teased in the Instagram stories. and I'm pretty much curious what happened to the demos like "Can We Go Back" and "Can We Go Back II/ The Future" It reminds me of Coldplay having hidden track.

    Pretty sure when he said that he was talking about songs on the album, not something unrelated to the album. He even said "we can talk about that once you've heard it", so by few surprises he just means different things on the album that you wouldn't typically expect from them.

    It would. Just because you know that there's a surprise waiting doesn't always mean you know exactly what the surprise is.

    He likely means it in the sense that he feels people will be surprised by some of the things they hear on this record, and that after the album is out he'll be happy to talk about those moments with the fans.

    Yeah I know. But at the moment that doesn't feel like anything special to me.

    Only the Bieber fangirls, it was a Warner masterplan all along which begun by making the Mike Shinoda clone :kappa:

    Isn't it usually pretty common for them to release a few songs before the album comes out, though? I know THP had GATS, UIB, and wasn't FM also released before the album? And LT had BID and LGM at the very least. So I'd assume with this much time before the album comes out, that another song or two will be released before then.

    Or maybe a "Making Of". I miss those.

    I think they're gonna release at least 2 new songs from OML before it drops. 3 months are too much for just one song.
    GATS, UIG, Wastelands, Rebellion & FM were released before THP came out.

    Living Things also had Lost In The Echo released before the album came out.

    I'm pretty certain we'll at least have 2 new songs like sasuke said. Its a pretty common thing for bands to release promotional singles for their upcoming albums, especially when you have this long of a wait.

    Nope. Unless you mean the official Itunes stream or the 30 seconds from the intro.

    The day the album drops, it'll be called "One More Light - Part 1" :kappa:

    Seriously though, it's so hard to wrap my mind around the fact that there's only 10 songs this time around after so long, especially if any of them are instrumentals/interludes. Hopefully the material that didn't make it is already on its way to inspiring FM/LP8 and we don't have to wait forever again. I guess the realistic case is that we're gonna get good stuff on some LPU release in the future, or there'll be a bonus version with more tracks as a store exclusive or something.
