Linkin Park is allegedly entertaining reunion offers with some of the classic lineup for 2025

Orgy frontman Jay Gordon in an interview with Wired In The Empire stated:

Very, very cool guys and obviously a great band. They’ve been around a long time and they’re still going for it. It’s going to be tough without Chester [Bennington], but we’ll see. I hear they got a girl singer now. That’s what I heard. 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.

But Billboard begs to differ, and reports that:

Booking agency WME is taking offers for a potential Linkin Park tour along with headlining festival dates featuring Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson and Dave Farrell. The band has not indicated who will sing on behalf of [late Linkin Park vocalist Chester] Bennington, who was often praised as one of the most gifted and durable vocalists of the 2000s with a dynamic range tailor-made for the group’s genre-bending style. One source tells Billboard the band is hoping to find a female vocalist to front the reunited band, matching rumors that have been making the rounds in recent weeks.

What is surprising is that there is no mention of Joe Hahn or of drummer Rob Bourdon, who were in the group before Bennington when they were known as Xero. We’ll just have to wait and see how the story will unfold.
