The album art for Linkin Park's new album "The Hunting Party" was unveiled earlier this week along with an official confirmation of the title and a June 17th release date. Last night via Twitter Mike Shinoda shouted out the artists that all had a hand in creating the collaborative effort that turned out to be the album's cover art. Linkin Park have once again teamed up with Ghost Town Media who worked on LIVING THINGS, A Light That Never Comes as well as the event and video art for Linkin Park's A Thousand Suns cycle. Along with GTM, Linkin Park have also pulled in notable artist James Jean, a visual artist in both fine art and commercial work who looks to be helming some of the booklet and thematic work we'll be seeing upon release. In the past week James has been posting work on Instagram with the hashtag #TheHuntingParty that is potentially work in progress for the new album. The images below haven't been confirmed as actual album art, and could just be towards the body of work James is producing. Check it out!
