    We normally don't post rumors of this nature, especially from third party sources, however a recent image posted by a Twitter feed at @LPInTheNews pretty convincingly shows an image of the BestBuy webpage showing three upcoming Linkin Park releases that have not been made public yet. We cannot confirm these details with Warner or anywhere else, so this is obviously potentially untrue. Check it out for yourself below.

    Prototype - Linkin Park
    06/05/12

    Prototype - Linkin Park [CD + DVD] [Digipak]
    06/05/12

    Burn It Down - CD Single
    15/05/12


    So... Real or Fake? The origin of this image is unknown besides the Twitter feed, so it's very up in the air if it is real as it could be easily faked. Here's what we think. Somebody has duplicated the webpage and used web developer tools to edit the website and input the details themselves. The SKU codes are also 9 digits in length as opposed to the 7 or 8 digit codes you see on the website. We thought we'd post it and let the speculation commence, however, after all the discussion and evidence we're calling...
    FAKE

    Tune in next time when we play "Real or Fake?" on the LPA! I'm sure it will be undoubtedly very soon. The comments are now closed, as the only rule of "Real or Fake" is that we close the thread when we come to the conclusion if it is in fact... Real or Fake! Thanks for playing!

    Update: LPInTheNews' Twitter has been removed / deleted. We have no idea why. We promise they were there before and posted LP updates often.

    I for one, as much as I'd love for us to report truthful news...hope this is fake. I really am not a big fan of that album title at all. It sounds like it was named by someone who trying way too hard to make an edgy/mysterious sounding album title. Unless this is a concept album about a robot in a futuristic world, then it might be cool. :kappa:

    Yes, the name does seem like something someone could make up, but that could be argued for ATS too maybe? I don't know. I felt dirty posting this rumor from this one image.

    Eeh I don't buy it. I'm with Derek regarding the album title. Plus, anyone could've easily edited in the info in the BestBuy page and taken a picture with their phone.

    If that's a photoshop, then it looks pretty damn good. As for the possible album title, I'm not sure that I like it.

    As it could be fake.. Like I told you on the leaked tracklist thread, these websites are sort of reliable because they get the information first and unintentionally leak it when they publish their articles for preorder. Likely true.

    And to put an example. The Rasmus will have its album out April 20 and the tracklist was leaked a couple of weeks ago by an online shop. It turned out to be real, as they released officially the snippets for each track yesterday.

    For some reason all LP material is under that genre at BestBuy.

    Eh, we're just the messengers (/ATS pun). We report what we see. If it's fake, we'll find out eventually, no? :)

    This is just getting out of hand now, ha. If this is indeed real, then Mike will become the masked man from The Catalyst and kill all the leakers!

    EDIT: Anyone else notice that all three product's genres are 'Heavy Metal'? Notable, I think...

    I think Michael should give us puzzles.It's not fair.Peoples always saying rumors and usually they are fake.If Mike give us puzzles it'll be enjoyable and everyone learn truths.

    BTW It's fake,I think.Maybe trollnoda created this page for enjoy with fans.He is so changed :D
