Those rumors about new material from Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda that came to light in the wake of Chester Bennington’s tragic passing weren’t much ado about nothing. As it turns out, Mike Shinoda will be releasing a new solo album named Post Traumatic on June 15th, and he’s revealed our first tastes of the 16 track release via two music videos, too. The new album takes us on a journey out of grief and darkness. Shinoda hopes that his music will help people feel less alone. Watch the video for heartfelt Crossing A Line above, and poignant moving Nothing Makes Sense Anymore below. You can pre-order Post Traumatic, here.

I’m utterly torn up by today’s tragic news, and my aching heart sincerely goes out to Chester Bennington’s family, his friends, Linkin Park, and all their many fans around the world. Though I’ve drifted away from Linkin Park these past few years, seminal albums like Meteora and Hybrid Theory will always have a special place in my heart. They were very much a formative force in the development of my music tastes. I obsessed over remix album Reanimation, too. I can’t even begin to fathom how many times I listened to these albums. I have so many memories connected to Linkin Park, whether it was blasting their albums out of my old souped up Civic while hanging out with my BFF, or going to their shows and making new connections with fellow fans, some of whom are my closest friends today. We suffered a great loss today, and I can only hope that Chester is up there in the great big sky, hanging out with his buddy Chris Cornell, finding peace. I was fortunate enough to catch them together at Linkin Park’s touring festival Projekt Revolution back in 2008, and I shall cherish that memory for all eternity. 

It’s only proper that we take a moment to watch the new video for Linkin Park’s Talking To Myself, which happened to come out this morning before the sad news surfaced. The song comes off of Linkin Park’s latest full length, One More Light, which we now know is Chester’s final album. We lost one of the most remarkable voices of the 21st century today. He was a man who brought us together, in life and in death. Linkin Park has been loved by people from all walks of life, and from every corner of the world. Chester’s memory, and his legacy, will live on, bringing us comfort and helping us through our hard times, as it has for so many years. We’ll be singing, or rather… BELLOWING along to In The End, Crawling, and so many other Linkin Park classics in exultant joy, together, forever. Linkin Park’s album One More Light is available, here.

New Linkin Park

Burn It Down is the new song from Linkin Park that marks the beginning of a flurry of activity for a new album coming out in June. The new album will be titled Living Things, and you can already preorder it here. Stream the new track below. What do you think? It’s definitely a very Linkin Park traditional sounding song with Chester Bennington tearing up the vocals as always. I’m hoping the new album will be an improvement on their last couple, but I still love listening to them regardless.
