Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington sadly passed away in 2017. The band has been in the spotlight again recently, however, promoting a greatest hits album that is set for an April 12 release. The band also shared a few unreleased tracks featuring Bennington’s vocals ahead of the new greatest hits album as well as least year’s 20th anniversary release of their landmark “Meteora” record. 

During a 2022 Twitch livestream, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda quelled rumors of the band getting back together saying: “The only Linkin Park news I have for you is that… Yeah, we talk every few weeks — I talk to the guys, or some of the guys. And there’s no tours, there’s no music, there’s no albums in the pipeline. Okay, so let me just tell you that. So just keep in your minds that that is not happening.” 

That might all be about to change. 

Orgy frontman Jay Gordon did a recent interview with Wired In The Empire, and he revealed that the band may have a new female vocalist in place. “Very, very cool guys and obviously a great band. They’ve been around a long time and they’re still going for it,” said Gordon as first quoted by Loudwire. “It’s going to be tough without Chester, but we’ll see. I hear they got a girl singer now. That’s what I heard.”

Gordon then tried to backtrack saying he wasn’t totally sure. “Don’t quote me on that. I’m not sure who the singer is going to be, but I heard it was gonna be female. They might just try to move on like that. That ought to be interesting.”
