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,” has been a smash at radio, and is now available through iTunes.  Fans can now 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.

 INCUBUS performed at KROQ’s Weenie Roast y Fiesta this Saturday, delivering a killer set.  The Los Angeles Times said the group was, “expansive, delivering philosophical hard-rock songs whose dense, mulitipart structures kept revealing fresh details.”  The Orange County Register added that the performance highlighted, “…  all the powers of Incubus that will carry them into the next decade…  frontman Brandon Boyd’s scathing political lyrics, sung like a male siren; bassist Ben Kenney and drummer Jose Passilas’ incredible funky-to-hardcore rhythm ranges; DJ Chris Kilmore’s otherworldly samples; last but not least, Mike Einziger’s mind-bending fret-and-FX-pedal work.”

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.
