Linkin Park’s debut album “Hybrid Theory” will be turning 20 in October and it looks like the band are still planning to celebrate the milestone. Mike Shinoda recently appeared in a Kerrang! Face-To-Face video and said that the group “have something coming that [he] think[s] is very cool.”
Shinoda said the following when asked about the anniversary:
“I don’t know what I should say about it. We’re planning some fun stuff. All I’ll say is that we’ve put some work in — not just the band. In fact, I’d say the label and management and the folks who have been with us for a long time and worked on our stuff along the way… We’ve done our best to kind of go to a lot of people who are family, in a sense, and say, ‘What do you think we should do? What would be a good kind of celebration of ‘Hybrid Theory’?’ and try to do our best to actually do a bunch of those ideas.
The LINKIN PARK fanbase is one of the most creative and active fanbases out there. The problem, for me, is that if I’m not allowed to divulge information because I want it to be a surprise, then the creative fanbase starts jumping out and imagining things. They come up with their own great ideas, and then once in a while, those great ideas are better than our ideas. [Laughs]
So I would urge the fanbase to just let it happen. And don’t come up with ideas of what we ought to do, because your ideas might be better than ours. But we do have something coming that I think is very cool. And I’m excited for — what is it? The end of October, right?”
