The LINKIN PARK UNDERGROUND (LPU) was founded in 2001 as a way for LINKIN PARK to connect directly with the people who support the band, and cultivate a central meeting-place for the LINKIN PARK community. LPU members each and every year are given access to members only exclusives, including meet & greet opportunities with the band, access to pre-sale tickets, a brand new merchandise package, music, and much more.
The most intimate content that LPU members have access to is the music. LINKIN PARK has been releasing EPs of unfinished songs, demos, and unreleased material since 2001 via the LPU. For the 13th year of the LPU, LINKIN PARK presents the LPU XIII CD, a collection of demos, unfinished songs and 2 additional tracks created by LPU members and produced by the band.
LPU XIII, the 13th year of the LINKIN PARK UNDERGROUND will launch worldwide on 11/18/13. Join the community at LPUNDERGROUND.COM
We wanted to give everyone a sneak peak of the LPU XIII CD. Premiering “Primo [I’LL BE GONE - LONGFORM 2010 DEMO]”, an early demo of LINKIN PARK’s “I’LL BE GONE” off the studio album LIVING THINGS.
A note from Mike Shinoda on the track:
Although we opted for a different final direction for “I’LL BE GONE,” I always loved this longer version of the song. I think this is a good example of how a different structure and arrangement can totally change the vibe of a song. Plus, this has a different chorus… - Mike Shinoda / LINKIN PARK
