Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda is streaming his new solo album “Post Traumatic” in its entirety. The effort will officially be released tomorrow (June 15), and it includes guest appearances from Deftones’ Chino Moreno, Machine Gun Kelly, K. Flay, and more.
During an appearance on the brand new iHeartRadio podcast series “Inside The Studio”, Mike Shinoda was asked if Linkin Park would continue without the late Chester Bennington. He responded by saying “there aren’t any answers to that at this point.”
Shinoda said the following about the possibility of moving on without Bennington:
“I don’t know. That’s the million-dollar question, right? And, unfortunately, I’ve said it before, but, unfortunately, there aren’t any answers to that at this point. It would be awesome if there were. That would be really easy. I wish we were in a Brian Johnson/Bon Scott situation where it’s, like, no, the guy, our best friend, who sang for the band who passed away, he literally said, ‘This is the guy,’ and we listened to the guy and the guy’s definitely the guy, and we all love hanging out with him, and we want to play with him. That’s not a normal… That didn’t happen to anybody else, really. That hasn’t happened to us.”
He also added the following about his bandmates’ feelings:
“If somebody comes and says, ‘Hey, LINKIN PARK, do you want to play a show in Germany?’ then you have to have a discussion with all the guys, and you have one guy who’s, like, ‘I definitely don’t want to do it,’ and you have one guy who says, ‘I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe we shouldn’t do it,’ and two guys who say, ‘We definitely need to do it,’ and then there’s concerns. All that noise, that is not something I can deal with right now, and it’s not a knock on anybody else. Any one of us could be the outlier opinion, the minority voice on something, but I definitely need some more simplicity in terms of decision making.”
