In a new interview with Rock Sound, LINKIN PARK singer Mike Shinoda discussed his latest solo album “Post Traumatic” saying that “there are some people who are scared to listen to ‘Post Traumatic’ because it sounds dark and heavy.”
He said:”The main focus for me right now is to explore all the things I can explore with it. That sounds almost like I’m evading the question, but the truth is, that it’s a journey without a goal. If there are goals, they’re so simple that they almost would seem boring. Like, a goal would be to feel like I know what my live set is supposed to look and feel like.
He continued, “Right now, it’s still changing a lot and I’m still just an artist and a person who likes to get things right. Like, I feel I’m still figuring out what it’s supposed to be. Obviously, we’re still promoting the music and still getting it out there to people.I think there are some people who are scared to listen to ‘Post Traumatic’ because it sounds dark and heavy, which can be the case, but I feel like what they need to know is the album may start there, but it doesn’t end there.
Shinoda added, “As it goes, it’s like a diary and this year, it started in a dark place but in ends in a place that is light and more open. So the open does that. So, if I can spread the word of that and hopefully that’s a message of hope to fans, I should say old fans, or potentially people who are fans. Other than that, I’m open to suggestions. [Laughs]”
