Washington D.C. radio station DC101 recently conducted an interview with Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda of LINKIN PARK. You can now listen to the chat below.

LINKIN PARK has announced a June 26 release date for their new album, “Living Things” (Machine Shop Recordings/Warner Bros.) The CD 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”, is now available through iTunes. Fans can pre-order “Living Things” from the band’s web site 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 kick off August 11 in Bristow, Virginia at Jiffy Lube Live. Tickets begin going on sale to the general public the weekend of April 27.

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.
