  TITLE, ARTWORK AND TRACKLISTING ANNOUNCED FOR THE NEW LINKIN PARK ALBUM
30 April 2014





Linkin Park have revealed details of their long-awaited new album - including the artwork, title, track listing and release date.

'The Hunting Party' will launch on June 16th 2014 - the day after the band's headline show at Download Festival. Following their collaboration with Rakim for the first single 'Guilty All The Same', the band have also announced guest slots from Tom Morello, Daron Malakian and Paige Hamilton.

Discussing the album, Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda recently told Noisey: "What's worked for us in the past is to stick to our guns as far as what our creative vision is, spend a lot of time on it, and really craft it. I stepped back and said, 'What's the thing I want to hear that nobody else is making, and what's the thing that we are uniquely positioned to make? I talked to the guys and basically asked them to get in touch with who their 15-year-old self was. Not to make songs for 15-year-olds out there now... we wanted to impress our inner teenager."

The video for 'Guilty All the Same' was also a game - the band wanted fans to literally play with their music. Both the song and the game can be taken apart and remixed via 'Project Spark' a free software platform created by Microsoft via Xbox One and Windows 8.

Shinoda said he looked forward to seeing what people would create on the game, along with stems of the music recording. "I see this as turn-based," he said. "We've taken our turn, and now it's up to the fans. Even if it's silly, as long as it makes me laugh, I don't mind what people do with it."

Linkin Park will headline Donington Park's Download Festival '14 on Saturday 14th June - when they'll play their seminal debut album 'Hybrid Theory' in full. Other headliners include Aerosmith and Avenged Sevenfold.

The band also previously announced plans for a joint 'Carnivores Tour' with 30 Seconds to Mars in the USA kicking off on August 8th.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
