Linkin Park will release its latest album, “A Thousand Suns,” on Sept. 14. Produced by Rick Rubin and Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda, it is the band’s first release since 2007’s “Minutes to Midnight.”

First single, “The Catalyst,” debuts Aug. 2, but in the meantime, fans can produce their own song based on some tracks from the forthcoming album via the band’s myspace page. The band will also offer live shows and exclusive content on myspace.

The band will embark on a tour supporting  “A Thousand Suns” starting Oct. 9.
