Linkin Park will celebrate the release of its sixth album, "The Hunting Game," with a special honor in its home town.
The group will be inducted into the Guitar Center RockWalk on Sunset Boulevard on June 18, a day after "The Hunting Game`s release." In a statement, frontman Chester Bennington said that, "We're honored to have our music recognized by our peers. But to be added to Guitar Center's RockWalk on Sunset Boulevard, right where we started, is pretty surreal. We're grateful to be here alongside many of the artists that inspired us."
Among those also on the RockWalk are AC/DC, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page and more.
"The Hunting Game" features guest appearances by guitarists Daron Malakian (System of a Down), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine) and Page Hamilton (Helmet) as well as rapper Rakim.
Linkin Park is playing festivals in Europe through June 14, then starts its Carnivores Tour with Thirty Seconds to Mars and AFI on August 8 in West Palm Beach, Fla.
