LINKIN PARK has issued the following update:
"Firstly, our new album has officially entered the 'mixing stage' of the process. We have put more into the new album than anything we have ever done before. After over a year of writing, recording, and setting unrealistic finish dates for the record (sorry about that!), we are in the home stretch. The new album is very exciting for the six of us, and we can't wait until everyone can hear it! When can you get your first taste? We are looking to release the first single in March.
"Some of you may think you have already heard some new music; not true. You have heard either 'Qwerty' or 'Announcement Service Public'… both tracks that came out of our recording process, but neither of which will be on the album. They are currently available on this year's LPU [fan club] CD. Go check out www.lpunderground.com.
"Also, get ready for LPTV. We are going to be releasing a series of Internet webisodes on www.linkinpark.com that will give a history of LINKIN PARK, as well as an inside look at the studio experience with the new album. LPU members will have access to extended footage on almost all of the LPTV episodes."
LINKIN PARK's follow up 2003's multi-platinum "Meteora" is being produced by Rick Rubin, whom MC Mike Shinoda called "a legend."
