    Good read. Seems the band are in the very early stages of the new album and it looks like Rick Rubin's back again.

    I think it's always nice to hear from someone in the band not named Mike or Chester. I'm curious about this headphones collaboration with Skrillex, hopefully we get more information on that in the future. I did get excited once Joe mentioned Chester's improved songwriting. It's still early, obviously, but I have high hopes for LP6.

    It sounds like they're not rushing LP6 out, which is definitely very good.

    Does anybody still think that the soundtrack for "Mall" will be released before the end of this year? ;P

    Come to think of it, I'm surprised Joe didn't mention that LP did the soundtrack for the movie..

    I REALLY want Joe to submit Mall to SXSW. Hopefully I'll be there and it'd be amazing!

    I agree. They need to know that there are 4 other members of this band.

    And there it is right there... he said it... what I always suspected and what I was worried about.

    "Mike [Shinoda] has been on this EDM kick for the last year".

    With his recent articles about Rock music, I fear he is going to go a little Kayne West and start thinking EDM is the new rock.

    I really don't want to see much EDM in my Linkin Park music thank you very much.

    Ugh, I don't care about the EDM kick that much. As long as it sounds good and hearing that Chester's songwriting is improving is exciting.

    Haha not cool. You totally took that out of context to make me look like a loser (which is not hard) :p

    I hoped there was news about Mall soundtrack. Doesn't seem to be appearing soon.

    To set the record straight, I've been saying for years that people who refer to the band as theirs are doing a disservice to themselves as a fan by not wanting the band to explore or be creative. Not once did I call you a loser, nor did I infer that. I merely was pointing out a fault that a huge portion of Linkin Park fans have. I'm all on board for the band to be as creative as they want to be. If that includes them dabbling in genres of music that I'm uncomfortable with, then so be it. I've been a fan of theirs for 13 years and for 13 years, they have yet to disappoint me. To follow this band means that you need to have an open mind, otherwise I can guarentee that you will be disappointed with them.

    Really wish he would have mentioned The Mall Soundtrack, but still a nice read. Great to see an interview with Joe Hahn.

    'Mike [Shinoda] has been on this EDM kick for the last year and he's been hanging out with different EDM guys, like he did a day with Avicii, and he's been sending stuff back and forth with Aoki.'

    Too bad they didn't do any collaboration with Avicii. I would more likely want to see and hear a collaboration between Avicii and Linkin Park rather than Aoki.
