According to Mike Shinoda, LINKIN PARK have no plans to release any new music, albums or perform any live shows in the immediate future.
Shinoda, who was just appointed Community Innovation Advisor of Warner Recorded Music (WRM), discussed LINKIN PARK’s future during a Twitch livestream on Friday (April 22). You can check it out below.
Mike said: “The only LINKIN PARK news I have for you is that… Yeah, we talk every few weeks — I talk to the guys, or some of the guys. And there’s no tours, there’s no music, there’s no albums in the pipeline. Okay, so let me just tell you that. So just keep in your minds that that is not happening.
He continued: “I’m just gonna say that much for now. I say that because anytime the band says anything or does anything, everyone tries to start up the hype train, and we’re, like, ‘No, no, no, no. Don’t start up the hype train.’ You’re gonna disappoint yourself. Don’t do that.”
LINKIN PARK have not performed live since October 2017, when the surviving members played a tribute concert in Los Angeles to their late singer Chester Bennington.
The band have still not officially announced whether they intend to continue following the death of Bennington, who took his own life in July 2017 at the age of 41.
