LINKIN PARK Offering Limited-Edition Book On Recycled Paper

Launch Radio Networks reports: LINKIN PARK is making available on the Projekt Revolution tour a limited-edition, 50-page book called "Revolution Unseen: The Hidden Art of Projekt Revolution". The book features artwork by LINKIN PARK members Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE's Gerard Way and Ray Toro, and others on the tour. The book is printed on recycled paper, which Bennington said is part of a larger effort by LINKIN PARK to conserve and reuse materials. "All of our records, any paper product is all printed on this new material that is actually, it's like super-recycled," he said. "Even our inks are environmentally friendly, like, everything we do, we're trying to focus on polluting as little as possible."

Proceeds from the book will go to Music for Relief, to benefit disaster relief and reduce global warming.

The Projekt Revolution tour is an environmentally conscious "green" event, with one dollar from each ticket being donated to American Forests for their Global ReLeaf program to plant trees to help reduce global temperatures.

The tour's next date is Tuesday (July 31) in Chula Vista, California.

Fans who want a soundboard-quality recording of LINKIN PARK's set at each stop on the trek can pick one up at the merchandise booth after the show. Quantities are limited to 1,000 per night.
