Monterrey – It was their first time in the city, but Linkin Park knew beforehand that many awaited them.
“It was surprising to know that the public really wanted us here. We made the announcement and received thousands of messages applauding this decision”, said Chester Bennington in front of the media just minutes before taking part of MTV World Stage Monterrey.
Not only relaxed in the way they were dressed but also how they expressed themselves in front of the camera, Chester Bennington and David Farrell, vocalist and bassist of Linkin Park respectively, joked about their future in the music industry.
“Nobody knows what we’ll decide in the future, we might even sing mariachi in our next album”, joked the musicians.
The truth is that although there is no concrete date for the release of their new album, Linkin Park continues to work creating music that satisfies both professionally and personally.
“That is important for us, that the songs come from our feelings, our questions, our doubts. Creating music will always be a mystery and yes, we started to write but honestly we don’t know when we’ll enter the studio to record,” confessed Farrell.
“Our new album will come out in the future”, Bennington added sarcastically.
They surprised their thousands of followers on social networks with a cover of the classic song “Rolling In The Deep”, the Californians assure that it emerged at a whim in a moment of leisure between them.
“It wasn’t planned, with that sort of thing we like when it arises spontaneously and that’s how it was. When we least thought of it, we started playing it, I was singing and even though it isn’t the type of music we generally play, it resulted in a new experience and something different we could offer to fans,” stated Chester.
Concluding their participation in MTV World Stage Monterrey, Linkin Park will continue with their tour in which doesn’t include many Latin American countries.
