It's about time someone's made an LP topic thread here!!! :)
LINKIN PARK is my all-time #1 favorite band (and has been since they released Hybrid Theory
back in 2000)!!!! :D
I have all their albums (including Reanimation
, LIVE IN TEXAS
, and the Jay-Z/LP
mash-up), their DVDs, their original Hybrid Theory
EP (the one with the baby on the cover), and all their LPU fanclub CDs. :)
Not to mention owning posters, t-shirts, their FROM THE INSIDE
art book, etc. Pretty much whenever LP releases something, I have to get it!!
Plus, I've been a part of LINKIN PARK street team since the METEORA
days. Distributing sampler CDs and stickers to whomever.
AND, out of the many celebs/professionals (in the film and music industries) that I've been given the pleasure of meeting and talking to in my life, I'll always cherish when I met DJ Joe Hahn, and talked with about movies for half an hour. :D
I once went to three Linkin Park concerts in less than a year: the LPU concert (a week before METEORA
was released), the Summer Sanitarium tour (with Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Deftones, and Mudvayne), and their METEORA World Tour (with Story of the Year, Hoobastank, and P.O.D.).
So, I'm dying to go one of their concerts!!
As for their new material... well, they've officially announced their new single will come out in March, but their album is slated for either an April or May release. And for those that don't know, they're completely changing their style. They no longer wanted to be associated as a rock-rap band (or a nu-metal band). I'm a little worried about it, but I still have confidence that it'll be a great album.
