Linkin Park have been writing and working on new music

Music 29/04/2020

In a recent interview, Linkin Park bassist Dave "Phoenix" Farrell revealed that the band has been working on new music - even before the coronavirus pandemic hit.

Linkin Park have been out of action since frontman Chester Bannington's tragic death in 2017. But when Phoenix appeared on the Dan Really Likes Wine podcast, he said they're now "working up some ideas."

Phoenix said the band had actually started writing new material before the pandemic hit, and being in self-isolation has slowed down their process. 

"With the band, we’ve been kinda writing and doing that whole bit before this all started, so casually at this point we’re doing Zoom meetings to eat lunch together and say "hi", but we’re not able to get together and write or do that whole bit."

Also if you haven't already heard - Chester Bennington's pre - Linkin Park band 'Grey Daze' has released their third single "Sometimes." The music video “showcases the Chester Bennington-written song’s message of hope amidst unexpected times,” according to a press release. 

Grey Daze are releasing an album on June 26th, with Chester's original vocals as well as guest stars such as family members and friends appearing on the album.
