    It has been reported by Complex, among other sources, that Linkin Park have teamed up with Japanese clothing brand A Bathing Ape to create a series of T-shirts to promote the band's upcoming shows in Asia. The shirts come in three designs (one of which features a drawing of the band members in the style of BAPE's Baby Milo character) and are due to go on sale at A Bathing Ape retailers from August 9.

    Hypebeast additionally reports that Linkin Park will be appear for a meet-and-greet event at the BAPE store in Shibuya, Japan, on that date.

    This might just be the thousandth time I've read "Linkin Park have teamed with..." Boy do they keep busy ;) Now team up with Marvel or the LEGO company in whatever way possible!

    That pretty much confirms that those are the only shows in Asia.

    Since these are for the Asia tour, I assume they won't be for sale at the Sunset Strip show, right?

    That's pretty much BAPE's design in a nutshell lol. People either hate it or love it. It's definitely more for the Neptunes/Clipse/Kanye West crowd. Prices are pretty redic.

    As far as knowing what BAPE does I think these are pretty nice designs.
