The cover artwork for LINKIN PARK's sixth studio album, titled "The Hunting Party", can be seen below (courtesy of Noisey). Due on June 17, the CD follows up 2012's "Living Things" and is the first LINKIN PARK album produced by thebandmembers themselves.
LINKIN PARK "leaked" its new single, called "Guilty All The Same", through the Shazam mobile music search app on March 6. The song features rapper Rakim and also includes something that singer Chester Bennington admitted we didn't hear much of on the last two LINKIN PARK records — guitars. "The guitars are back, for sure," he told The Pulse Of Radio. "We challenged ourselves to get that 16, 17-year-old kid that was like so excited about what was going on in rock music — we wanted that kid to be excited again. And that was something that we feel, right now, I mean, with all the great music that's out right now, there seems to be this vacancy for that kind of music — really aggressive, really energetic music that just kind of doesn't exist right now."
LINKIN PARK recently announced that it will head out on a co-headlining North American tour with 30 SECONDS TO MARS dubbed the "Carnivores Tour". Joining LINKIN PARK and 30 SECONDS TO MARS on the tour will be AFI.
The road trip kicks off on August 8 in West Palm Beach, Florida, with dates booked through September 19 in Concord, California.
