Will Linkin Park forge ahead following Chester Bennington’s death? Mike Shinoda weighs in

Friday (July 20) marks the one-year anniversary of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington passing away. With memories of his passing still fresh in Linkin Park fans’ minds, many are wondering whether Linkin Park will continue.

In a new interview with France’s United Rock Nations Radio, Linkin Park member Mike Shinoda says he’s “open” to the thought of the band performing live again.

“I’m just taking it one step at a time and keeping my mind open to the possibilities,” Shinoda said in the interview. “Whether it’s doing things under my name or working with other artists or producing tracks for somebody else, or if the guys are at a point where they wanna play Linkin Park shows, I’m sure that any of those things are possibilities and I’m just open to whatever happens.”

Bennington passed away by suicide on July 20, 2017. After his passing, the surviving band members of Linkin Park have performed one concert together, a special tribute show in October of 2017 featuring a range of musical guests.

Shinoda recently released his debut solo album, “Post Traumatic,” in June. The album was written about his life and experience coping with Bennington’s death.
