A year has now passed since our world was forever shaken by Chester’s passing. Words still fail to describe how much Chester meant to us and how deeply we miss his bubbly, kind-spirited personality and his incredible talents. The shockwaves of his death still ripple through our fanbase as we continue to process our grief and reconcile that our friend is actually gone. Throughout this journey we have learned a lot about ourselves: about our resilience, about how amazing a family this community is, and about the importance of mental health awareness. And above all, we have strived to #MakeChesterProud in honour of his legacy.

A piece we wrote earlier in the year talked about how grief comes in waves: how the waves will keep coming, but we can learn to surf. Over the span of the last year, it feels like we’re starting to find our balance on top of that board. A lot of this can be owed to how we have banded together as a community to hold each other up at times we no longer felt we could stand. But we would be remiss if we did not mention the efforts of Mike Shinoda over this last year to help our community heal.

Mike, it has been incredibly inspiring watching you power through and channel your grief over the last year, from helping to put together the Hollywood Bowl celebration, to chaperoning us through that difficult night, to having the courage to candidly pour your broken heart out for us through an EP and then an album, to pouring it out again up on stages all over the world, to becoming a mental health advocate, to hosting live chats with your followers to check in with everyone… it’s been way more than we ever could have expected. You could have decided to keep your experience private and we totally would have understood. But instead you emerged a leader and truly what our community most desperately needed. Chester is so proud.

To the entire band: you are ever-present in our thoughts. We cannot imagine how hard this has been for all of you over the last year. The love, support and kindness you've shared with us is appreciated by everyone in the community. Just know that this community is here for you, as you have been for us these last two decades. We’re not going anywhere.

To Chester's family and friends: we wish you continued strength during these unimaginably difficult times. And thank you, Talinda, for being such a driving force for mental health awareness. Your commitment to changing lives and improving the conversation around mental illness is inspirational.

To Chester: We will keep you in our memories forever. Thank you for singing us through our hard times and lifting us up with your warm and generous spirit. You are greatly missed, friend. We love you.

Mike Shinoda's brand new album Post Traumatic is releasing today at midnight (June 15th) and is already available in some countries. This is Mike's first fully solo album outside Fort Minor's The Rising Tied in 2005. The album consists of sixteen tracks and has been described as a chronological journey of Mike dealing with the passing of Chester, how life has changed, dealing with the grief of losing someone close to you and everything in between. The album has been written over the past year and promises to be a therapeutic in-the-moment experience of how Mike has felt during this time.
