Linkin Park announce North American tour

Linkin Park have announced dates for a North American tour in support of their latest album, “The Hunting Party.”

The month-long run with guests Rise Against and Of Mice & Men starts January 15 in Orlando, Florida.

“Rock music was born in these towns, and for some reason these places tend to get overlooked much more than they should,” says singer Chester Bennington. “We want our fans there to know how much they matter to us.”

A LP Underground pre-sale starts today (Monday), with tickets on sale to the general public starting Friday, November 7.

“The Hunting Party” debuted at No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 earlier this year.

The band’s sixth album sold 110,000 copies in its opening week for the top 5 showing.

The new release is the Linkin Park’s first studio release to miss a No. 1 entry since its debut album, "Hybrid Theory", peaked at No. 2 in 2002.

“The Hunting Party” features guest appearances from Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, Helmet's Page Hamilton, System Of A Down's Daron Malakian and rapper Rakim.
