It’s been almost 2 years since Chester Bennington’s tragic death and fans have been wondering if Linkin Park will ever return to the music scene.
In speaking with South Korean newspaper Yonhap, DJ Joe Hahn recently shed some light on the rock group’s future and what fans can expect.
Linkin Park’s last performance as a band was back in October 2017 when they came together to do a tribute show for the late singer. Since then, co-vocalist Mike Shinoda has gone on to release his solo album “Post Traumatic”. Meanwhile, bassist David ‘Phoenix’ Farrell has delved into the world of podcast and recreated his channel called Member Guest.
For Joseph Hahn, the DJ and samplist shot BTS and DJ Steve Aoki’s music video for “Waste It On Me”. He also signed on to the JTBC audition program ‘Super Band’ as a judge. So as you can see, the band members have been coping well on their own and “taking care of themselves”.
When the topic of Linkin Park came up, Hahn shared that they have “started talking about making new music together”. However, he did warned fans not to get their hopes up as it might take a while before the band officially releases anything substantial.
“I don’t want to set a deadline. We just want to focus on the present and talk about music. We aren’t discussing detailed plans. I just want to go back to those days when I made music in the warehouse,” the 42-year-old artist told the publication.
As for now, the Linkin Park DJ is currently occupied with a photograph exhibition that showcases pictures taken while he was on tour with Linkin Park. “On our last tour, I took the camera and took pictures of the members. When I was performing, I took a pictures of all the guys. Sort of like a time capsule,” Hahn recalled.
The exhibition will take in Beijing, China and Shanghai, three cities from the 27th April to the 3rd of May.
