Linkin Park Is Working On New Music After Chester’s Departure
The remaining members of the once top-hit nu metal band Linkin Park have revealed that they are working on new music despite the lockdown. Building communication through video call and working from home, the LP bassist Dave Farrell told that the band is going to bring new music. The In The End and Minutes To Midnight rockers have been in hiatus ever since the tragic suicide of their lead vocalist Chester Bennington in July 2017. Since then, the group’s pianist and backing vocalist, Mike Shinoda, has been focussing on his career. However, perhaps now is the time for the band to get back together.
Linkin Park Working Via Zoom For New Music!
Linkin Park members told us that they have been working together writing new music before the coronavirus lockdown. Continuing with their effort, they have resorted to Zoom sessions to check in on each other. Dave Farrell appeared on an episode of Dan Really Likes Wine live stream and said:
“For us, with the band, we’ve been kinda writing and doing that before this all started. So casually at this point, we’re doing Zoom meetings to eat lunch together and say, ‘Hi’. But we’re not able to get together and write or do that whole bit. So [we’re] working at home a little bit, working up ideas…. I’ve been playing a lot of drums, just to do something new – I’ve been doing that for the last year, year and a half, and purposely making as much noise as possible to create my own space in the house.”
Although Mike Shinoda has gone on to release his debut solo album in 2018, he talked about Linkin Park searching for a new vocalist for music. He explained that it has to happen naturally. Then again, even if they find somebody that’s a great person with a fitting personality and a style then the band can do some stuff.
Linkin Park’s last music album together came out in 2017, One More Light.
