Six months after the death of Chester Bennington, Linkin Park frontman Mike Shinoda is using music to heal.
Today, Shinoda has shared a new EP, Post Traumatic. The three-song release marks his first new music since the death of his bandmate Bennington in July 2017.
Each of the three tracks chronicle Shinoda’s past few months of emotional — and oftentimes disembodied — grief over losing Bennington.
“It was a month since he passed, maybe less / And no one knew what to do, we were such a mess/ We were texting, we were calling, we were checking in / We said we ought to play a show in honor of our friend,” he sings on “Over Again.”
Along with the newly released tracks, Shinoda shared hazy, self-shot videos for each track on his YouTube.
In a statement, Shinoda writes, “The past six months have been a rollercoaster.” He continues, “Art has always been the place I go when I need to sort through the complexity and confusion of the road ahead. I don’t know where this path goes, but I’m grateful I get to share it with you.” Read his full statement, and watch Shinoda’s self-directed videos for each track, below.
