Tue, 23 Nov 2010 12:23:43
Modern alternative band Linkin Park are known for their musical experimentation and technological innovation and their latest release, A Thousand Suns, has been described as a "journey that explores the conflict between technology and humanity." In keeping with this man vs. machine spirit, the band has teamed up with A.P.E. RADIO, for Linkin Park Radio, which is live now.
The station is curated by the band themselves and as a result, Linkin Park Radio will broadcast and unlock a wealth of content, including previously unreleased tracks, demos and covers that can't be heard anywhere else. How's that for exclusive? The band will let fans in on the recording process behind A Thousand Suns, as well as discuss the multi-media live experience of their upcoming North American tour. Linkin Park will also program selected playlists of their favorite songs, interviews with other performers, and much more.
"We're very excited to launch the Linkin Park station on A.P.E. Radio," said Mike Shinoda, co-lead vocalist of Linkin Park, in a statement. "This is our first radio station where you can tune in and hear some of our favorite music - songs that we grew up on, and new music we think is exciting. We're also going to premiere rare and exclusive LP music, and take calls from some of our favorite fans... and you get to hear us pretend to be DJs. It's going to be a slice of the world through the eyes and ears of Linkin Park."
"Linkin Park Radio" will be distributed across Clear Channel Radio's "iheartradio" network, which includes hundreds of local radio websites; the popular iheartradio mobile app, which has been downloaded by nearly 11 million people; widgets; and linkinpark.com. Fans are encouraged to participate by emailing their suggestions to email@example.com. The station strengthens an already diverse A.P.E. Radio roster including "Slash FM," "Maroon 5 Radio," "Radio Weezer," "Christina Aguilera Radio," and "Eagles Radio Hosted by Joe Walsh."
