Okay, okay. We're just kidding. We got nothing but love for you, Mike Shinoda. But still, anytime Linkin Park makes a clothing collaboration, it tends to come out of left field. The band is making a few appearances in Asia in the next couple of months, and their first stop is Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival starting in August. The band is kicking off the tour with a proper collaboration by teaming up with none other than A Bathing Ape. It's possibly their best collaborative work since 2004's Collision Course with Jay-Z.

The design combines both their logos done up with Bape’s signature camo. A third tee features all band mates done up in Baby Milo-style (which is objectively pretty cool), and a complete listing of the tour stops in the back. Mike, if you're reading this—can you hook a brother up?

As far as tour T-shirts go, these rank waaaay above the Family Values and Projekt Revolution tees. And yes, this is coming from someone who used to listen Korn in 7th grade, so you know it's real. This collaboration also proves that the Japanese streetwear brand is doing just fine sans Nigo. Mark your calendars for the release date at Bape retailers starting August 9.
