LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/23/12 -- Last Friday before an intimate fan-club only show in Los Angeles, Linkin Park unveiled a Honda Civic Si Coupe and CBR250R Motorcycle they personally customized and autographed to be displayed at every stop on the upcoming Honda Civic Tour.
Following the unveiling, the band asked their supporters and people worldwide to sign a pledge in support of Sustainable Energy For All. The pledge is available for digital signature at powertheworld.org. The goal is to get as many signatures as possible by June 19th, when Music For Relief will deliver it to Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon during the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, better known as Rio+20.

Linkin Park and Music For Relief's 'Power The World' campaign asks fans to use their voice to support Sustainable Energy For All, by signing a pledge to help the 1.3 billion people worldwide who have no access to electricity. Linkin Park launched Power The World to raise awareness and help bring clean energy solutions to the 1 in 5 people worldwide who do not currently have access to energy. One example of the clean energy solutions Power The World will highlight on the upcoming Honda Civic Tour is the Solar Suitcase from non-profit partner WE CARE Solar. The WE CARE Solar Suitcase brings lights, power and hope to health facilities in regions without reliable electricity. It is an economical, easy-to-use portable power unit that provides health workers with highly efficient medical lighting and power to help save lives.
"The 2012 Honda Civic Tour together with Linkin Park and Incubus, will continue the tradition of more environmentally conscious actions to ensure a tour that supports the annual concert series' dedicated environmental action plan. Linkin Park has always worked to make each tour more environmentally friendly than the last," said lead vocalist Mike Shinoda, "which is why we are really pleased to be taking our greening even further with Honda and Incubus this year." On-site concert innovations will encourage fans to be 'greener' as well by promoting simple, environment friendly initiatives, such as recycling, carpooling and reducing their carbon footprint associated with traveling to shows.
Linkin Park's fifth studio album, LIVING THINGS (Machine Shop Recordings / Warner Bros) will be released June 26, 2012.
