MIKE SHINODA Ready To Perform New Material: Loudwire
Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda opened up about how he’s ready to perform the songs he wrote after the death of his bandmate Chester Bennington. In a new interview, Shinoda explained the writing process started “in a really dark place”, adding “I wanted to put it into music, not only to put my stamp on it, but also to guide the fans on that journey in terms of keeping up with my narrative or understanding where I’m at.” As for how he’ll approach performing his new music live, he says: “If the songs become too hard to play, then I’ll take them out, but I’m going to start really going for it and facing it head on and seeing what happens.”
