    Chester Bennington called into radio station 97.9 WCPR earlier this week to promote upcoming STPCB shows. During the interview, he updated fans on the progress of Linkin Park's upcoming sixth studio album, revealing that the band are "ahead of schedule" with their work on the album and that "there's definitely going to be a new record out soon".

    Although "soon" is rather vague, this news nonetheless comes as a surprise considering Bennington's increased workload with STPCB, though he has consistently promised that his duties as STPCB's frontman will not conflict with his work in Linkin Park. This new update suggests that the upcoming Linkin Park album might be released as early as the first quarter of next year, perhaps even preceding the 2014 world tour which the band have planned.

    An excerpt of the interview can be downloaded here thanks to Chester Bennington Network.

    Not sure how I feel about this news. Hopefully the album doesn't feel rushed or lazy.

    I'm just gonna be excited for new music and keep my distance from all the release nonsense. I know a lot of people like it all, but I find the leading up to the release of Lp records way too chaotic.

    I'm excited about the prospects of a new album, but after LT I'm kinda apprehensive as well.

    I like the news but it leaves me doubts as for what's the actual stage of the recording process. We don't know how "soon" is Chester's "soon", and I know the guys are always writing but Living Things came out mid-2012, it still feels early for a new LP record to be out.

    I'll take this with a pinch of salt and just take it as Chester's words came out of excitement more than anything else.

    By "soon", they can mean in the next year, or in the next three years. If it's really LP6, I'll be excited no matter what.

    A new one already? Yes please!

    This could fit perfectly with the 'LP-heavy year'! Or at least, I would love for it to work out that way :p

    Being a fan, you learn not to hang on every word that comes out of Chester's mouth pre-release. I'm not buying into the hype of an upcoming release yet.

    They can write YEAR AND A HALF for this one, because they've started writing right after finishing LT so...
