In perhaps-not-unexpected news, Linkin Park has canceled its upcoming tour, following the death of singer Chester Bennington.

“The Linkin Park One More Light North American Tour has been cancelled. Refunds avail at point of purchase,” concert promoter Live Nation tweeted Friday. “Our thoughts to all affected.”

Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington died as the result of hanging, the Los Angeles County coroner’s office told USA Today on Friday.

According to the coroner’s office, Bennington hanged himself from a bedroom door.

Bennington was found dead in his home in Palos Verdes Estates on Thursday morning. At the time, the coroner’s office said that the death was being investigated as a possible suicide.

Bennington was 41 years old.

News of Bennington’s death came just hours after Linkin Park released its latest music video, “Talking to Myself.” The band, which released its latest album “One More Light” in May, was scheduled to hit the road again later this month.

The band is preparing a statement on Bennington’s death. In the meantime the group’s official Twitter page shared a photo of the frontman:
