Linkin Park have shared a written tribute to their late frontman Chester Bennington. The singer passed away exactly one year ago today (July 20).
“To our brother Chester,
It has been a year since your passing—a surreal rotation of grief, heartbreak, refusal, and recognition. And yet it sill feels like you are close by, surrounding us with your memory and your light. Your one-of-a-kind spirit has authored an indelible imprint on our hearts—our jokes, our joy, and our tenderness.
Eternally grateful for the love, life, and creative passion you shared with us and the world. We miss you more than words can express.
M, J, D, R, B

With tomorrow (July 20) being the one year anniversary of Chester Bennington’s death, Linkin Park bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell has shared an open letter to the late singer. He said the following:
“In the past year, there hasn’t been a day that has gone by that I haven’t thought of you. I miss you, and it still hurts to not have you here. I chose not to speak at your memorial because I couldn’t formulate the words to adequately express how I felt… I chose not to speak at the Celebration of Life Concert honoring you because I knew I’d struggle to even be able to speak at all. And today, a year after your passing, I still struggle to try and eloquently express what you mean to your family, your friends, your fans… and to me. There is so much that I feel, and that I could say, and that I would want to say, and that I don’t know how to say… but one thing I know for certain, is that you are loved, and you are missed.
During a chat with France’s United Rock Nations, Mike Shinoda said he is “open” to the possibility of doing more Linkin Park shows. He said the following when asked if he will only do solo shows from now on:
“I don’t know. I’m just taking it one step at a time and keeping my mind open to the possibilities — whether it’s doing things under my name or working with other artists or producing tracks for somebody else or if the guys are at a point where they wanna play LINKIN PARK shows, I’m sure that any of those things are possibilities and I’m just open to whatever happens. Right now, honestly, the thing I’m most excited about and I’m focused on most is getting the [solo] live show together and making it the best it can be. It’s at a good place, and I’m basically doing… I’ve been doing a one-man show, but I think there’s a lot of room to grow and develop it, and I’m excited about continuing to do that.
Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has premiered a new video for his song “Lift Off.“ This track, which features Chino Moreno (Deftones) and Machine Gun Kelly, appears on Shinoda’s “Post Traumatic“ solo album.
