Since Chester Bennington’s death in 2017, Linkin Park have done a good job of keeping busy. Between Mike Shinoda’s solo career, treating Hybrid Theory to an anniversary reissue and releasing long-lost music, the band aren’t on hiatus as much as they’re working within their circumstance. That soon may change, if Orgy’s Jay Gordon is to be trusted. He discussed a rumour he heard that the nu metal mainstays might have a new singer while talking to KCAL 98.7’s RadioActive Mike Z. Turns out, a little birdie told him Bennington’s successor may be a woman. “Very, very cool guys and obviously a great band,” Gordon said of Linkin Park [via Loudwire]. “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.” After a while, he backpedalled a little, saying, “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.”
