Linkin Park will be hitting the road sooner than we expected! The band will be headlining the Maximus Festival in South America, which takes place on May 6 in Buenos Aires, Argentina and May 13 in São Paulo, Brazil. Recently, there have been rumors of a full South American tour, and with this announcement, it seems likely more shows are to be announced. This will be the first tour since A Thousand Suns that the band won't be starting in Europe. This of course poses the question of will the band have new material out by this time or not? Since it's all speculation for now, feel free to join the discussion in our forums below!

Tickets will be avaliable soon on the festival's official website.

Are you planning to attend these shows? Do you think the band will be performing new material? Any other places you wish for the band to visit? Tell us!

Mike and Joe have collaborated with Blaine Halvorson from MadeWorm on their latest Hybrid Theory shirts. Part of the profits from each sale are going to Music for Relief, more precisely $10.00 from each sale of the T-Shirt and hoodie and a $100.00 from each sale of the custom, limited edition vintage black tee.

Speaking about the Hybrid Theory soldier design, Mike said:

"We made it to represent the duality of the band's sound – the intersection of contrasting elements, and the hard-versus-soft tension in our band's music. It's an image that's synonymous with the band's name at this point, and one that has become a cornerstone of our group's visual language over the years."
Speaking about the collaboration, Blaine Halvorson from MadeWorn said:

"MadeWorn is about the process, about craft. This collaboration with Linkin Park was the perfect way to express that. It's about putting that kind of intense attention to detail into every piece, integrating artistry and the touch of the human hand."
Check out a video about the process of making the shirts below, featuring instrumentals of "The Messenger" from A Thousand Suns and "Castle of Glass" from Living Things.

Buy the shirts here.

Linkin Park took part in a Facebook live video stream today where they spent 40+ minutes discussing the band's upcoming new album and LPU 16. You can check out the full video archived on Facebook below.

In regards to the 16th iteration of their official fan club Linkin Park Underground, the band said that it will most likely be coming later this week or early next week. There will be two packages to choose from that include items such as a shirt, a pin, a scarf and a 10 track CD that will include demos and unreleased tracks. The tracks known so far are a Bleed It Out demo (#84) and other instrumentals that were part of the creation of their yet unreleased album. More to come on this hopefully in the coming week.

The band went in depth about the process of making the new album. It's hard to really summarise their passion when talking about it but it was pretty exciting to hear the band discuss the recording process and differences that went in to making the new record. A lot of praise came towards the vocals that Mike and Chester have recorded along with how outside collaborators helped change things up in terms of their direction and recording techniques. It really sounds like this album is going to be something special and different but again we recommend listening to them discuss it themselves in the video above to come to your own conclusions.

What did you take away from the live chat and do you like how the direction of the new album is sounding? Let us know in our Forums!
