No puzzles or hidden messages with this one. We’re excited to finally announce that our new album, A THOUSAND SUNS, will be released on September 14th.

The lead single for the album is called “The Catalyst.” It will be released on August 2nd.

Beginning tomorrow, July 9th, we’re teaming up with MySpace for “Linkin Park, Featuring You,” a contest which gives you the one-of-a-kind opportunity to be on our new album. We'll be giving you some audio from “The Catalyst,” and you get to take it from there; you can remix the parts, write something over them, or mute stuff and write something totally new. We may choose a remix of the song, and put it on the album…or, we may choose an amazing keyboardist, string quartet, guitarist, percussion group, or other musician, and invite them into the studio to play on one of our songs. No matter what instrument you play, you can win. We're open to anything good. All we ask is that you include any audible portion of any one of our stems in your submission.

Once you submit, the community (that's you) will vote, and the most popular stuff will rise to the top. Then, my bandmates and I will comb through the submissions, choose one winner, and they will be included on our album, A THOUSAND SUNS. Check out for contest details.

I think I've said enough for now. Thanks for your continued support. We’ve got more announcements coming, so keep checking for updates.

I appreciated your move away from the commercial expectations. The new album is incredible, such an easy listen!! I love the blend of old with new and the recurring themes. This album shows you still have the old, while are totally embracing the new and unexpected!!!! Linkin Park are amazing. I cant stop listening to your new album.
Please please come on tour to South Africa! ( I mean we hosted 2010, thats gotta coount for something!? )

hey guys u were the one of the reasons that i started liking new rock cuz i only liked old rock but u changed my mind and i luved hybrid theory and songs from the other albums but this new album im sorry to say was disappointing :( im sure some people might like it but none of ur fans that like who u were are going to like this album. i honostly thought i got the wrong cd at first but no it was a crap cd that said linkin park on it. im sorry but u need to go back to ur old stuff.

"Not a born leader I'm a tough act to follow
I am not / the fortune and the fame
Nor the same person telling you to forfeit the game"
That line of When They Come For Me music is just...,it just resumes the whole idea of the new album and their intentions with it.They want to make music,more then anything.They want people to feel it,to taste it,to admire it,to think about it,not to just like it's melodies.They keep modifying all these years not for a coincidence or for mere coincidence.They intend to renew their music as they renew themselves and get more mature,more manly,more wise as life pass them by.

I can only thank,with my life and ears,such an amazing band and music.Thank You Linkin Park,and keep up the good work.

u know linkin park 2 me is full of distortion and chesters high vocals i didnt see any of these in u r new album but i think the endin of catalyst was impressive putin the gitar at the end minutes to midnight had better songs than this :-(
