Linkin Park have released a music video for their new single 'One More Light' off the album with the same name. The video is a beautiful look at Chester with footage from his life with Linkin Park. It's incredibly touching and heartbreaking. The music video is directed by Linkin Park band-mate Joe Hahn and Mark Fiore. Watch the video below:



“It has been incredibly emotional to work on this, and especially to watch it. I feel that by doing it, we not only faced some of our biggest fears, but it enabled us to use our talents to bring some light to people that need it. As we move forward to the Hollywood Bowl show and beyond, I think about the people that connect with the band, outside and inside our circle. This video is a gesture of good will to the people that want that connection.” - JOE HAHN

“One More Light was written with the intention of sending love to those who lost someone. We now find ourselves on the receiving end. In memorial events, art, videos, and images, fans all over the world have gravitated towards this song as their declaration of love and support for the band and the memory of our dear friend, Chester. We are so very grateful and can’t wait to see you again.” - MIKE SHINODA

This is the first video to be directed by Joe Hahn since 'Until It's Gone' in 2014 whilst Mark Fiore directed 'Talking to Myself' which was released off 'One More Light' back in July.

Let us know what you think of the 'One More Light' music video on the forums.

It appears Linkin Park will be releasing the title track 'One More Light' as a single going by a listing that has appeared on a website that is known for showing upcoming singles and tracks impacting radio. AllAccess.com has been used many times in the past to show when a new track from the band will be a single and 'One More Light' has been listed for an October 3rd release.

[​IMG]
The song 'One More Light' first gained traction after the band performed the song live on Jimmy Kimmel Live following the death of Chris Cornell back on May 18th 2017. The song has always held a special emotional connection and now we feel that more than ever following the death of Chester Bennington in July. The song has always made perfect sense for a single and releasing it feels like a fitting way to honor Chester's legacy with Linkin Park.

As you can see, no details about the event are mentioned, so we don't know what it will entail. But it's safe to say it will be emotional.

Talinda Bennington, wife of Chester Bennington released a statement today to the public on the loss of her incredible husband through the band's publicist. You can read the statement below:

One week ago, I lost my soulmate and my children lost their hero-their
Daddy. We had a fairytale life and now it has turned into some sick
Shakespearean tragedy. How do I move on? How do I pick up my shattered
soul? The only answer I know is to raise our babies with every ounce of
love I have left. I want to let my community and the fans worldwide know
that we feel your love. We feel your loss as well. My babies are so young
to have lost their daddy. And I know that all of you will help keep his
memory alive. He was a bright, loving soul with an angel's voice. And now
he is pain free singing his songs in all of our hearts. May God Bless us
all and help us turn to one another when we are in pain. Chester would've
wanted us to do so. Rest In Peace, my love.

Always,

Mrs.Talinda Bennington


To Talinda, Chester's children, the band and the family: Words cannot adequately express how sorry we are for your tragic loss. You are in our thoughts during this difficult time.

Following the absolutely devastating news regarding Chester Bennington's passing on the 20th of July, the band posted this heartfelt message on their website and Facebook account today:

Dear Chester,

Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.

You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realized. In the past few days, we’ve seen an outpouring of love and support, both public and private, from around the world. Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father; the family will never be whole without you.

Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infectious. Your absence leaves a void that can never be filled—a boisterous, funny, ambitious, creative, kind, generous voice in the room is missing. We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place. You fearlessly put them on display, and in doing so, brought us together and taught us to be more human. You had the biggest heart, and managed to wear it on your sleeve.

Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift. We love you, and miss you so much.

Until we see you again,

LP

We will keep you posted should any other statement come from the band in the coming days.

We miss you, Chester. Hard to believe you're gone.

In a decision that should come as no shock to anyone, various media outlets are reporting that Linkin Park have cancelled their One More Light North American Tour, which was set to begin next week in Boston, Massachusetts. Live Nation has confirmed that tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase. No word yet on when that process will kick off.


Linkin Park are expected to release a statement soon, when ready.
