During a recent livestream on Twitch, Mike Shinoda offered a new update on Linkin Park. He said the following:
“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. 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.”
During an appearance on “Tuna On Toast With Stryker,” Mike Shinoda was asked about the possibility of a Linkin Park reunion. He responded by saying that the band still don’t have the “emotional and creative math” worked out to make a return following the tragic death of Chester Bennington.
Shinoda said the following:
“For me, I’m like, okay physically I could still tour. That part’s good. Hopefully that doesn’t change any time soon. But now is not the time [for Linkin Park‘s return]. We don’t have the focus on it. We don’t have the math worked out. And I don’t mean that by financially math, I mean that like emotional and creative math.”
He also dismissed the idea of touring with a hologram:
“Negative a million percent. I hate the idea of doing a Linkin Park hologram thing. It’s awful.”
