During an appearance on Dan Really Likes Wine, LINKIN PARK bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell has revealed that the group was writing new music before the coronavirus lockdown.
“At this point, right now, I think globally we’re all doing a version of the same thing, you know, trying to stay home and trying to stay as healthy as possible,” Farrell said (see video below).
“For us, with the band, we’ve been kinda writing and doing that before this all started. So casually, at this point, we’re doing Zoom meetings to eat lunch together and say hi, but we’re not able to get together and write or do that whole bit. So working at home a little bit, working up ideas.
He added: “I’ve been playing a lot of drums, just to do something new – I’ve been doing that for the last year, year and a half, and purposely making as much noise as possible to create my own space in the house.”
LINKIN PARK‘s latest album, One More Light, was released on May 19, 2017. It is the band’s last record to feature lead vocalist Chester Bennington before his death on July 20, 2017.
