Linkin Park’s Surviving Members Announce New Project
Linkin Park recently shared a post to reveal their new plan, including personal details from the surviving members’ lives, on the band’s official Twitter account. This unexpected news made their longtime and dedicated fans excited and curious about what would happen soon.
After their friend and bandmate Chester Bennington committed suicide by hanging on July 20, 2017, Linkin Park decided to go on a hiatus. The singer struggled with addiction problems and severe depression for a very long time, and he couldn’t continue to fight. Losing him such early devastated his family, friends, bandmates, colleagues, and fans worldwide, who shared kind and heartwarming messages for him.
Therefore, their fans accepted the band’s wish to mourn after the late singer and unwillingness to create something without him. Their first project following their frontman Bennington’s death arrived, except for tributes such as Linkin Park and Friends: Celebrate Life in Honor of Chester Bennington event and ‘One More Light Live.’ They probably realized they couldn’t meet their fans with new albums or live performances, but they could do something to keep connected.
The band’s surviving members’ recent tweet announced that they never forgot their community and wanted to share some events or personal situations with them through ‘Notes from the Band’ regularly. Bourdon, Delson, Shinoda, Farrell, and Hahn defined it as ‘tiny snapshots into our daily misadventures,’ released each month. Linkin Park added that they don’t have a concrete plan or a schedule yet, but they will work on it, and it’s the essence of the project.
The band members’ tweet read:
“Two decades in, and our LP community continues to inspire us. Your passion and dedication are the lifeblood of what we’ve built together with you. It doesn’t go unnoticed.
We thought it was about time to begin sharing a little more regularly with you. Starting this month, we’ll be putting (digital) pen to (digital) paper to share ‘Notes from the Band.‘ Tiny snapshots of our daily misadventures from us each month. There’s no concrete plan, but that’s what we like about it. Until then,
All our best, Rob, Brad, Dave, Joe & Mike.”
