While the album title wasn't official at first - It's now out in the open; Linkin Park is set to return with The Hunting Party on June 14th.
The band were working on the soundtrack for an upcoming film called Mall, directed by Joe Hahn. In an interview with Fuse, Mike Shinoda stated they began working on their sixth album.
Linkin Park is scheduled to perform at Download Festival on June 14, 2014, where they will play their debut album Hybrid Theory in its entirety for the first time. Linkin Park confirmed that they will headline Rock am Ring and Rock im Park in 2014, along with Metallica, Kings of Leon, and Iron Maiden. They will also headline with Iron Maiden again at the Greenfield Festival in 2014.
Shinoda recently hinted in a status update on his blog that the sixth album will be released in during 2014. On March 6, 2014, the band released their new single, "Guilty All the Same", which features American rapper Rakim, from the upcoming studio album through Shazam. The band's sixth studio album was later revealed to be titled as The Hunting Party, and it is set to be released on June 14, 2014.
Speaking about the band's sixth album to Noisey, Mike Shinoda said: "What's worked for us in the past is stick to our guns as far as what our creative vision is, spend a lot of time on it, and really craft it. On this record we spent six months in the studio, probably six more out of the studio in addition, just coming up with demos and throwing them away."
He added: "In contrast to that, there was a pop artist who I won't name who was in the studio while we were doing our record—they showed up for three days. Day one they showed up for thirty minutes, day two they showed up for fifteen, and day three they neglected to show up at all. The song was done."
Here's the latest single, Rebellion.
When was the title “The Hunting Party” confirmed as the album title?
Me too. Otherwise I’ll remove this.
was suspicious at first, but this is the source wikipedia cites. seems to be legit: http://www.bostonmusicspotlight.com/news-linkin-park-and-30-seconds-to-mars-team-up-for-summer-tour-massachusetts-concert-august-2014/
It’s not really confirmation. The words “The Hunting Party” were found at in a video on Linkin Park’s Youtube channel, but it hasn’t been confirmed to be the title of the album yet. Could be lyrics for all we know.
It was official on loudwire yesterday
Here’s a link to the song “Guilty All The Same” by them:
why is this still here lol
Still no confirmation lol should be deleted.
lol i was right
I don’t know; information on this was solid enough for the album to have a Wikipedia page created, which has yet to be taken down.
Regardless of the name, Mike said that the new album will be more of a ’90s rock sound, and that Guilty All The Same was the only collaboration. Needless to say, I’m incredibly excited.
Confirmed collaborations with Daron Malakian of System of a Down and Paige Hamilton of Helmet.
Linkin Park has confirmed via a blog link on their Twitter that the release date is actually JUNE 17, 2014. They also revealed the album cover art:
Let the hype begin D:

Ty for this post
Omg I cant waitttttt!!!!
The release date needs to get updated to June 17 and the album artwork needs to be included
that is the right artwork
Hmmm, my phone isn’t displaying it.
Everyone on the hype train :D
Oh a song with Daron Malakian that sounds good, haven’t heard him in a while.
I bet the next single is Until It’s Gone, it’s the only song along with GATS that was mixed & mastered.
Very interesting. Sounds better than what they’ve been putting out! I kinda fell off the train from these guys since Minutes to Midnight. But this sounds promising. Also, why is this tagged under metalcore? Hahaha
I’m equally concerned about its classification as “Alternative” on the homepage. If Coldplay is considered “Rock” then this album should be too :|
Don’t know why I love the cover… anyway can’t wait!
lets hope its not as disappointing as the last one was… bring back the old linkin park.
