LINKIN PARK's new album, "The Hunting Party", debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart in June 2014 — the first time since the band's 2000 debut disc, "Hybrid Theory", that the group did not land at the top of the chart in its first week of sales.
"The Hunting Party" sold around 110,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The record arrived in stores via Machine Shop Recordings/Warner Bros.
"The Hunting Party" follows up 2012's "Living Things" and features the singles "Guilty All The Same" and "Until It's Gone".
Guests on "The Hunting Party" include RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello, HELMET mainman Page Hamilton, SYSTEM OF A DOWN axeman Daron Malakian and rapper Rakim.
