Fucking awesome art and title. And one of the best interviews with Mike I've ever read, hands down.
AWESOME! Can't wait!
That's an awesome album cover. Can't wait! And I'm glad they're just releasing info/music now. I didn't particularly like those puzzles or games from past albums to get a freaking date or album cover, or when they used to make like two announcements to finally announce something.
Before I say anything, I want to say that Mike Shinoda's literally the reason I started producing and writing music 10 years ago. He's been a constant influence on everything that I make, and I literally bought a meet and greet ticket just so I'll be able to thank him for that this fall.
That being said, I didn't feel that good of a vibe from his comment on Mark Foster being a jingle writer. The dude had his own rough moments getting into the industry and being a commercial jungle writer was just another step he had to make in getting to where he is now. Mike's had a tremendous amount of experience in the industry, so I'd assume he'd know what it's like for a guy at 22 to be working a job like that while trying to make it with what he really wants to do.
It's not that big of a deal, really. Mike was in an interview and he was making casual conversation, but when it gets published and read, there's a huge audience listening. A comment like that ends up bottling down all of Mark's experience to just him being a jingle writer. I know the band's hyping their album up by promoting how loud and pure it's going to be, but I just hope they don't go too out of line and discredit other musicians' work at the same time. They've never done that before, and it's one of the reasons I respect them this much.
In a way, Mark Foster's path is pretty similar to Mike Shinoda's as well; his music encompassed hip-hop, electronic, classical piano - exactly how Mike's always done. There's a lot more to give him credit for.
As for the album cover:
This is a good interview. I like this interview.
Also, cover art isn't loading for me I still haven't seen it!
SOMEONE DESCRIBE IT TO ME WITH YOUR WORD-PICTURES

GREEK MYTHOLOGY. ARROW. GREY. ICE. SHE WOLF. SPIKES.
He's talking to you, Meteora fans.
That just makes me think of Game of Thrones...
And the album comes out in winter.
Winter is coming.
Good questions, I enjoyed reading a laxed interview for once.
Winter is coming.
Winter + is + coming = 3 words
The + Hunting + Party = 3 words
Half Life 3 confirmed.
Your logic is upside down.
That's an Australia joke.

You are but a summer child, winter is coming for all of us, and it won't matter who sits on the iron throne when it does.
