Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has teamed with Etnies sneakers to launch a new line of shoes called Club Tattoo. The line is named after Bennington's string of Phoenix area tattoo shops which he opened in 1995.
"I'm really excited about the collaboration because it gives us a chance to blend our mutual passion for art, body and lifestyle in a unique way,” Bennington said in a statement. “Etnies and Club Tattoo live what we do, love what we do and together we've created a perfect connection between body art and street style.”
He then added, “Plus, this way I can make even more money for not having to really work that hard.”
[Actually I added that…sorry]
The new Linkin Park album, Minutes to Midnight, hits stores on May 15. The band will launch another Projekt Revolution tour this summer in support of the album, with My Chemical Romance rumored to be on board.
