Linkin Park Has Started Discussing New Music Release Since Chester Bennington's Death

However, Joe Hahn reminds fans not to expect any new music from them in the near future because it will take time for all members of the band to get comfortable in the studio again.

AceShowbiz - Rockers Linkin Park have started to consider returning to the recording studio for the first time since lead singer Chester Bennington's death.

The "Numb" hitmakers went on a hiatus after the frontman committed suicide in July, 2017, but they regrouped for a memorial show in Los Angeles that October, and last year (18), co-vocalist Mike Shinoda admitted he was open to touring with his bandmates again, if they were ready.

Now Linkin Park DJ Joe Hahn has revealed discussions have taken place regarding the stars' recording future.

"The members are taking care of themselves and their families and are going through the problems (of grief) in their own way," he told South Korean newspaper Yonhap.

"And... now the band has started talking about making new music together."

However, Joe admits fans shouldn't expect any new material in the near future, because it will take them all some time to get comfortable in the studio again without Bennington.

Asked to put a timeframe on the recording reunion, he laughed, "Maybe in about 10 years? It might be sooner."

"I don't want to set a deadline," he explained. "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."

Hahn's comments emerge four months after bassist Dave 'Phoenix' Farrell (Dave Farrell) opened up about the status of the band.

"We hang out quite a bit," he shared. "I think we will do music again. We all want to. We all still enjoy being together and being around each other."

Shinoda previously raised the idea of continuing Linkin Park with a new singer, although any such decision would have to be an organic process.

"I think it has to happen naturally," he said. "And if we find somebody that's a great person that we think is a good personality fit and a good stylistic fit, then I could see trying to do some stuff with somebody."

But Shinoda made it clear they didn't want any guest vocalist to take the place of Bennington: "(We) wouldn't wanna ever feel like we were replacing Chester."
