    I know it's optimistic thinking, but I could see them putting out a single by the end of the summer and release the album early next year. Definitely.

    Hmmm...I don't know how to feel about this. I am personally not a fan of political songs because they tend to be preachy and the fact that rich musicians sing about being broke and stuff like that just makes is meaningless. I love more personal lyrics that I can relate to and it seems like a trend now to be all political in music. but that's just me.

    Well they're touring for the rest of this year and I heard Chester say in a recent interview that they have no plans to make another video for any ATS songs but they may make a live video, he wasn't too sure about it. I don't think we will be getting any new music this year aside from random demos in the LPU11 CD.

    pretty much this, a lot can change from now until the album finally drops but I am curious as to what they're gonna do to make it even more polarizing than ATS. I hope it's not just art for art's sake, hopefully the songs are as meaningful and deep as Chester is saying.

    They essentially have all of July and August to record and then they tour in September but then don't have plans after that. So, I dunno, they could at least release 1 song if they wanted to before the year ends. On top of that they're supposedly doing recording on the road. And like said earlier maybe they'll at least tease us with puzzles or what have you.

    Sounds exciting. LP tours until the end of Sept. and will more than likely do a little writing on the road. They already have some songs in the works and hopefully get some major work done October 2011 - May 2012. Hoping for a Summer/Fall 2012 release with a HUGE Projekt Revolution in support of it.

    This is good news. At earliest I'd say we get our first single from the next album in probably February or March. If they aren't finding a bunch of sounds for the new record, and are just making music, that is very possible.

    Again, they're only touring in June and once or twice in early July. What's key his how much time they get done between July and September.

    Linkin Park has written more than enough relatable melodramatic personal songs. I'm glad they're going to write about political/social issues.

    I don't look to music to tell me how to feel about myself or the world. Linkin Park can say whatever they want, its their music not mine. I don't have to agree with it. Just so long as it comes from an honest place.

    I'm actually surprised that Chester is telling us what they are writing about. I know they've always played the meanings close to the vest and let the fans interpret their own meanings. NMS, HHH had fairly obvious political messages. I've heard some other WMG meanings to NMS.

    Still think the reference to sounds has to do with business noise from the label, press, mgrs, not literal music sounds.
