MIKE SHINODA DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT THE FUTURE OF LINKIN PARK
Mike Shinoda is getting ready to release his album “Post Traumatic” tomorrow. The album has a heavy focus on Shinoda’s coping with the loss of friend and Linkin Park bandmate Chester Bennington. “Post Traumatic” is Shinoda’s solo project a part from his other side project Fort Minor. In a new interview with “Billboard” Shinoda talks opening up to the guys in Linkin about doing this solo album.
Shinoda says at first he was nervous to tell the guys he wanted to do a solo project. He knew the guys would never “flat out” say anything bad, in fact they would probably be polite about it, but he knew he could tell if one of the members wouldn’t approve. However, the guys were actually chill about it. “When I told the guys, "Look, I want to do a solo record and here's why," they were really receptive to it. I could tell there's an honest, positive reaction,” Shinoda notes. “I slept really well that night. 'Cause I was really worried about it beforehand.”
While his main focus seems to be “Post Traumatic” for now, Shinoda can’t really say what the future holds for Linkin Park. “We'll let everybody know when there's a clear message,” Shinoda offers on the band’s future. “We all have different, varying degrees of interest and stamina right now, and I don't want to hold anybody to anything they can't or they don't want to do.” And just to be clear, the guys all still keep in touch. Shinoda says they talk all the time.
“Post Traumatic” is due out tomorrow.
