MUSIC NEWS: Linkin Park 'The Hunting Party' out today

Grammy-Award-winning rock band, LINKIN PARK have released their sixth studio album, The Hunting Party (Machine Shop Recordings / Warner Bros). Co-produced by band members Mike Shinoda and Brad Delson, the album is now available on iTunes and music retailers everywhere. 
Linkin Park have managed to capture their ever-innovative spirit and permeate it with a defiance and hunger seldom seen in bands working on their sixth album. Though some fans believe The Hunting Party to be something of a "prequel" to their debut album, Hybrid Theory, guitarist Brad Delson explains, "It's not a return to a style or sound, it's a return to an ethos and inspiration – one that predates us coming together as a band. It's the result of a hunger for music that we're not hearing anyone doing."
The debut single from The Hunting Party, "Guilty All the Same" was  #1 at Active Rock for three weeks.  The current single, "Until It's Gone," is quickly climbing the charts at both Alternative and Active Rock, where the band has dominated playlists for well over a decade.  The video for "Until It's Gone" premiered on Facebook, with a massive viewership of over a million views in the first 24 hours.
The band will kick off a week of events, beginning today, June 17th, with a live performance at the Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ at 12:00pm PST. The event will be broadcast live on and replay for 24 hours following the end of the performance.
On Wednesday June 18th, Linkin Park will be inducted into Guitar Center's Historic RockWalk, at 12:00pm PST at Guitar Center's Hollywood location on Sunset Blvd. Following the induction, Clear Channel will host an exclusive performance with the band, as well as an intimate Q&A, to discuss The Hunting Party as part of their iHeartRadio Live Series. The event will be broadcast live on-air as a 60-minute special on Clear Channel Modern Rock, Active Rock, Mainstream Rock and Sports stations, and streamed online across all radio websites and at
