Linkin Park is now streaming its new album, The Hunting Party, in its entirety at iTunes. The disc arrives next Tuesday (June 17th) and follows up 2012’s Living Things. The band has been gradually revealing songs from the record over the past few weeks, including the singles “Guilty All The Same” and “Until It’s Gone,” but the complete set is now available to hear at Apple’s online music store.
This is the first of Linkin Park’s six albums to be self-produced, and singer Mike Shinoda told us that the band never really considered hiring an outside producer this time:
“There came a time when it would have been appropriate to choose a producer if that’s what we were gonna do, and that time just kind of came and went. You know, Brad (Delson, guitarist) and I were at the steering wheel and totally confident that we were gonna take this thing in the right direction.”
- Guests on The Hunting Party include Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, Helmet main man Page Hamilton, System Of A Downaxeman Daron Malakian and rapper Rakim.
- Linkin Park will head out this summer with 30 Seconds To Mars and AFI on the Carnivores Tour, which kicks off on August 8th in West Palm Beach, Florida.
- The band will also be inducted into Guitar Center’s historic RockWalk, located on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, in a private, invite-only induction ceremony on June 18th.
