Through their official website, www.linkinpark.com, LINKIN PARK has announced a June 26th release date for their new album, LIVING THINGS (Machine Shop Recordings/Warner Bros.). The album is co-produced by Rick Rubin (Adele, Metallica) and Linkin Park vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Mike Shinoda, who co-produced Linkin Park’s last two albums. Rolling Stone magazine says, “The material is the band’s most powerful since its megahit 2000 debut.”
The first single from the new album, “BURN IT DOWN,” premiered today on radio, and is now available through iTunes (take a listen here). Starting later today, fans can pre-order LIVING THINGS from the band’s website, www.linkinpark.com, and will receive an immediate download of the single. All orders come with a monthly subscription to receive eight new LIVING THINGS remixes.
The band also announced that it will be co-headlining the 2012 Honda Civic Tour with Incubus, along with support from Mutemath. The tour will be kicking off August 11th in Bristow, Virginia @ Jiffy Lube Live. Tickets begin going on sale to the general public the weekend of April 27, but anyone who pre-orders the album at www.linkinpark.com will gain access beginning on April 24th to buy tickets for the tour. Fans will also be able to buy LP Underground fan club memberships at a discounted rate, and earn the right to buy tickets first, get early access to the venues, and be eligible for meet and greets with the band.

Since 2001, Honda Civic Tour has provided music fans with an amazing concert experience at a great value — offering various ticket prices, so there’s something for everyone. “Linkin Park and Incubus fans have grown up together,” said Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. “We’re looking forward to bringing them all together for a great night of music.” Brandon Boyd from Incubus adds, “We’re going to have a blast on this tour, and I know the fans will too.”
Continuing a Civic Tour tradition, fans will have an opportunity to check out Linkin Park’s customized and autographed Honda Civic Si Coupe and Honda CBR250R motorcycle — which will be displayed at every tour stop.
