Linkin Park have announced plans to return to the road in 2015 as they continue to promote their new album, The Hunting Party. With help from special guests Rise Against and Of Mice & Men, the rock veterans will swing through New England for shows in Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.

After touring major markets this past summer with 30 Seconds To Mars (including a stop at the Xfinity Center), Linkin Park will focus on hitting several cities they have missed over the past few years. “Rock music was born in these towns, and for some reason these places tend to get overlooked much more than they should,” declared lead vocalist Chester Bennington in a press release. “We want our fans there to know how much they matter to us”.

The band’s series of New England shows will begin in in Rhode Island with a performance at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence on Saturday, July 24. Tickets are priced at $65.50 and $85.50. They’ll return to New England for a performance at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connetiuct on Friday, January 30. Tickets are priced at $79.50 and $99.50. The following night, the tour will move north to New Hampshire for a night at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester. Tickets range in price from $47.50 to $85.50. Tickets for all three performance will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. All three venues will feature a general admission floor.

The Hunting Party, Linkin Park’s sixth studio effort and follow-up to 2012’s Living Things, debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 after its release in June. The album was co-produced by band members Mike Shinoda and Brad Delson. It features several special guests including Tom Morello (of Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave), rapper Rakim, Page Hamilton (of Helmet) and Daron Malakian (of System of a Down). The Hunting Party features singles “Guilty All the Same” and “Until It’s Gone” (streaming below).

“After crossing paths with these guys at festivals around the world over the past decade, we’re excited to finally share the road with Linkin Park,” said Rise Against lead vocalist/guitarist Tim Mcllrath in a press release. “We think this will be a great experience for all our collective fans.”

Rise Against, who performed at the House of Blues in September, are touring in support of their new album The Black Market. The band’s seventh studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s Endgame, debuted at #3 on the Billboard 2000 after its release in July. The album, which was recorded with long-time producers Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore, features singles “I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore” and “Tragedy + Time”.

Of Mice & Men continue to tour in support of Restoring Force. The band’s third studio effort and follow-up to 2011’s The Flood, was released in January.e>
