Linkin Park are reportedly working on new music during their time on quarantine and prior to quarantine, according to bassist Dave ‘Phoenix’ Farrell. However, it is all currently on hold due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In an interview with Dan Really Likes Wine, Farrell samples wine while chatting with Dan, explaining that the band was working on some new tunes before the global pandemic shutdown the country.
“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 told the host of the talk show during the interview.
Although, the band isn’t able to get together to create music together, the band has been getting together via Zoom meetings to work up ideas he revealed, while the individual members are also staying busy on their own at home as well.
“For us, with the band, we’re 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.”
“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,” Farrell continued to explain.
