The Hunting Party drops early in the summer...
Linkin Park have set the release date for their upcoming album. Noisey spoke with Mike Shinoda, who revealed that The Hunting Party, the band's sixth studio LP, will release on June 17th. That's the Tuesday after their appearance at the Download Festival this summer.
Speaking about the album, 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."
