Mike Shinoda Speaks Out on Linkin Park’s Future: “There Aren’t Any Answers”

Mike Shinoda has spoken out about the future of Linkin Park. 

Next month marks a year since the tragic passing of frontman Chester Bennington. In an appearance on the iHeart Radio podcast, Shinoda spoke about the possibilities of there being any future for the band in the long-term wake of tragedy. “I don’t know. That’s the million dollar question, right? And unfortunately there aren’t any answers to that at this point. It would be awesome if there were. That would be really easy” he said.

He further shed some more light on the situation in regards to the external influence of other people. “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. You have one guy who’s, like, ‘I definitely don’t want to do it,’ and you have one who says, ‘I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe we shouldn’t do it,’ and then two guys who say, ‘We definitely need to do it,’ and then there’s concerns.”

Later on in the podcast, Shinoda explains how the aforementioned works in regards to the entire band. You can listen to the full recording here. Mike Shinoda will release his debut solo album, Post Traumatic, tomorrow. Listen to new single Ghosts below.
