    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!

    #Hashtag.

    Well, I thought Mike and Joe had made the "hunting creature". Nice to see how it was conceptualized though.

    If this is the artwork for the album, fuck yeah! Probably their best artwork!
    Hopefully they don't model all of this in 3D.

    Fuck. Wether it's actually related or not to the record (and it's likely that it is related to it), that painted picture with the skeleton would have been such a fucking badass cover.

    I hope they use some features of this art for the t-shirts and other merch this tour. I'm excited to see the final products!

    I broke this news in the "Got News" section this morning around 8am, excited to see all the artwork, clearly a lot of thought went into the art direction for this album by the band.

    Would be wrong to expect fairies and pixies for an album titled Hunting Party.
