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.
Never mind, just saw your answer above. Sorry.. slow internet.
I’m pretty sure when it does leak it will appear everywhere pretty fast. If a leak is reported and you can’t find it on all the various leak sites within ten minutes then it’s safe to assume it’s a false report.
Linkin Park – Final Masquerade is already up xD
So are European stores closed on Whit Monday?
Yeah, but only for a few countries.
i hate waiting lol
Releases in Germany tomorrow. Yes, that means a leak. The wait is nearly over!
Even though Chester did tweet about it (https://twitter.com/ChesterBe/status/475830080078622721), I highly doubt that it would come out in Germany tomorrow since the release date is set for 13th (Europe). He must be drunk… or perhaps he’s talking about something else? Like an online stream ’cause there would be only 1 week left after that for the album to release (US). Well, I hope we get to hear some good news tomorrow.
On the MTV website when you look at the new album, it says the release is on June 10th.
Yeah! So much confusion…
So we could be able to hear it tomorrow or on Tuesday.
I mean wednesday, i just realized it is monday in germany right now. Lol
I’ll go with Tuesday. (:
i just want to hear it now
my body is so ready
Lots of people keep saying they hope they return to HT style… look at a band like Limp Bizkit, Fred Durst is 43 and while I’ll Rock out to ,oat stuff they put out, it’s still the same. Linkin Park has managed to stay relevant since 1999 because of the changes they’ve made and the experiments they’ve done on their music. I’ve always hoped they would do something like the hunting party… lots of my friends actually make fun of me because LP hasn’t been very guitar and drum based recently
“,oat” should say “most”
Pretty much. I am so glad they changed their style. When limp bizkit’s album Cobra (or what ever the hell it was called) it really proved that LP was brilliant.
LB’s album sounded exactly the same as they have always done and it was dated crap.
All for nothing has leaked.
Yeah that’s half the album now hahaha! Apparently it was uploaded by a fan so hopefully the rest is following shortly!
any idea where?:/
Been trying to figure it out myself lol
Can’t find it either
Oh I thought you had it xD
Just go on twitter and search Linkin Park-All For Nothing and loads of people have posted links :)
Site called uploading
I found it via twitter..it took me to some russian website with a poor quality version. Go where blobsy says, im sure its a better version there
Same just found it not gonna listen though
Holy fuck. That was fucking amazing. Best song off the album so far.
Ill tell you guys this, its awesome. one of my favorites so far. this album keeps getting better and better
I totally concur!!
Apparently All For Nothing has leaked!
Do you read before you post lol
When I posted nothing was there :(
So apparently the album comes out on Tuesday in Germany, which is 6pm for USA (where I’m at).
It’s not going to come out at 12.01am in germany though.
All the official things I have seen says it’s the 13th.
I wonder why Chester tweeted that it will leak today.
Well All for nothing leaked so I’m pretty sure the rest is on its way
When he tweets (Which is not often) it’s usually weird or funny things.
The album is being shipped to retailers apparently today and that is guaranteed to cause a leak. He just knew it was inevitable I guess.
Okay, so I guess we can expect a leak today? It’s currently 1:04 p.m. in Germany.
Most probably. The other songs were released as singles so when Final Masquerade leaked it was just the one song.
All for nothing is not a single and the only way it could have been leaked was if someone ripped if from the full album.
This is me speculating but it makes sense to me.
That’s just what I was thinking. So are we sure All for Nothing is not a single? And that AltLife Music place is not legit?
Surely if it’s set to release tomorrow in Germany stores will already have it? Making a leak more likely to be today? Wishful thinking though on my part.
All For Nothing is just awesome!
There is a torrent out there for 5 iTunes pre-order singles, including Final Masquerade.
I’m not on twitter so how else would I be able to find it to listen as I’m on my lunch break and there’s no way I can download it until I get home. All for nothing that is lol
I found it here mate, it skipped a couple of beats for me so don’t expect perfect quality, still awesome though.
Click the link and scroll down.
You shouldn’t post a link, it’s forbidden.
Oh mate I appreciate it . Listened to only half of it as it’s off my phone lol. But I’m blasting it out later ! Sounds so goooood
Happy to help :)
Guys I’m doesn’t get it. I’m living in Germany and the album should arrive on Friday (13 june). I have Pre-ordered it and amaz** says that they don’t shipped it yet. So I don’t understand the tweet?
The retailers are supposed to get it today so that they will have stock for the 13th.
Ok. I thought Chester wanted to say that you can buy it tomorrow. Misunderstanding :) like I said in some posts above I think that it will leak by tomorrow at the latest (sry for bad English)
I think at the end of today it will leak. Just a speculation.
I still can’t believe it hasn’t leaked
I’m refreshing this page every 30 seconds lol
Same here lol
Me too mate xD
Why is it so hard to believe? Albums these days leak around a week or less before the release date. If it comes out Tuesday it usually leaks the Thursday before…it it comes out on a Friday usually leaks Monday or Tuesday . Nothing new here
Holy shit Mike’s rapping on ‘All For Nothing’ is awesome!! It is a really good song but I can’t help but feel annoyed that Chester is barely in it. He’s like just in the background yelling shit. I knew that Paige Hammilton was featuring in the song but i thought he would just sing one verse or something not all the way through leaving out Chester. I still really like it though.
chester’s on like every other song on the album as a lead though.
yeahh i know maybe it’s just me but I fee like when a song features someone they usually just do a verse like 3/4 in not the whole song. don’t get me wrong it is still a great song!!
Well i think it will leak later today as 6 of 12 tracks are released most of which leaked an then chester going drip drip drip… however the question is where do you guys think it will leak: kingdomleaks / getmetal / VK ?
Kingdom leaks most likely..
hopefully… no f**ing about with getmetal limiting my download speed
Only final masquerade and All for Nothing were actually leaked.
Useless trivia brought to you by Blobsy!
When I get this album I’m going to play it so loud until my speakers blow up! xD
It will leak on underground torrent sites before it spreads to mainstream sites like KL
It leaked!! :D
where can i find it?
Dude… the damn site is not opening. Is this for real?
I am dl-ing now, will let you know if it is real or not.
WHERE? I NEED IT!!
Also at getleaks
HOLY FUCK HOLY FUCK HOLY FUCK DID IT REALLY JUST LEAK?!
