Seems pretty clear, yet I guess some folks have a hard time understanding. The musician recently released his debut solo album 'Post Traumatic', and is intending to tour that record first Mike Shinoda has spoken more about his future plans for performing, revealing that he is “open” to a number of possibilities – including making an eventual return to touring with Linkin Park."We are not looking for a new singer, and if it were to happen organically, I’d be open. Stop making shit up." So hold off on making your audition tape, and try to instead work your way naturally into the lives of Linkin Park if you want that gig. Seems pretty clear, yet I guess some folks have a hard time understanding. Lemme clarify a rumor: we are not looking for a new singer, and if it were to happen organically, I’d be open.
Here's exactly what he said when asked if the band would replace Chester: “That’s not my goal right now. And if we find somebody that’s a great person, and that we think is a good personality fit and a good stylistic fit, I could see trying to do some stuff with somebody. I wouldn’t ever wanna feel like we are replacing Chester.” I guess some press outlets ran with the idea that Linkin Park is looking for a new vocalist, forcing Shinoda to offer this clarification: "Lemme clarify a rumor," Shinoda begins on Twitter. Shinoda recently released a new album, and you can purchase your copy of it here. He doesn't need his name up in lights He just wants to be heard whether it's the beat or the mic He feels so unlike everybody else, alone In spite of the fact that some people still think that they know him But fuck 'em, he knows the code, it's not about the salary It's about reality and making some noise Making a story, making sure his clique stays up That means when he puts it down, Tak's pickin' it up.

Don’t know if this is an old or new vid, but this Prodigy (RIP) / @Alchemist clip really captures something about studio magic to me.
The idea that Linkin Park would find a lead singer to succeed Bennington has been in the ether for a while, though no one in Linkin Park itself has suggested that is their plan moving forward.
