LINKIN PARK’s hugely successful sixth studio album ‘The Hunting Party’ was released on June 16th, the same weekend that the band headlined the UK’s Download Festival. It went on to take the No 1 spot on the iTunes chart in 67 countries. The album was produced by band members Mike Shinoda and Brad Delson and included guest slots from Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, System of a Down’s Daron Malakian and Helmet’s Paige Hamilton.
The album received a glowing 4K review from Kerrang magazine who said it was “..the heaviest thing they’ve ever done”. Q rating it 4/5 thought it was the “..the sound of Linkin Park coming in from the cold” whilst the Daily Telegraph called it “…sleek, exciting and committed” and the Guardian noted it was a “..loud return to rocking hard”
The band recently made a surprise secret visit to the Vans Warped Tour and will be headlining the first ever MTVU Fandom Awards and the corresponding MTV Fan Fest at Comic-Con International, San Diego on July 24th before they head out on the Carnivores Tour with 30 Seconds to Mars at the start of August.
About LINKIN PARK:
Grammy-Award-winning, multi-platinum alternative rock band LINKIN PARK is comprised of co-lead vocalist Chester Bennington, drummer/percussionist Rob Bourdon, guitarist Brad Delson, bassist Dave ‘Phoenix’ Farrell, DJ/programmer Joe Hahn, and co-lead vocalist, keyboardist, and guitarist Mike Shinoda. The band has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, and is the biggest band on Facebook – with over 64 million fans and counting. Since 2000, when LINKIN PARK debuted on the Billboard 200 with Hybrid Theory, no other artist has had more top 10 singles on the Alternative chart and, with the release of their last album, Living Things (Machine Shop Recordings /Warner Bros), which reached #1 in over 20 countries, no other band has achieved more #1 albums this century. On their last touring cycle, the band played to over a million people, in 79 shows, on six continents. In 2005, LINKIN PARK founded Music For Relief, a 501 © (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing aid to victims of natural disasters and the prevention of such disasters. Since its inception, Music For Relief has raised over six million dollars for victims of multiple disasters across four continents. The organization was recognized by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for the Download to Donate program to raise funds and awareness in the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake. In recognition of its humanitarian work, LINKIN PARK received a 2011 Global Leadership Award from the United Nations Foundation.
