Linkin Park to Release Live Album Featuring Deceased Singer Chester Bennington

Group says new live album “gives you a glimpse into how magical these shows were for the six of us”

Months after his death, Chester Bennington’s voice will be heard again on a new album.

Linkin Park will release a live album of performances recorded during its final tour with Bennington, the group announced Wednesday.

The album, recorded during the group’s One More Light world tour, will be available Dec. 15, Linkin Park said in a tweet.

“Chester was uniquely passionate, uncommonly generous, sensitive, optimistic, funny and kind. With his voice, he turned pain into catharsis, authenticity into art, and passion into connection,” the group said in the announcement. “His dedication to bringing these songs to life was triumphant. For those of you who attended this tour in person, we thank you. For those who could not, we hope this live album gives you a glimpse into how magical these shows were for the six of us.”

In July, Bennington was found dead in his home in Palos Verdes Estates in California, at the age of 41 as a result of hanging. According to the coroner’s office, Bennington hanged himself from a bedroom door.

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 that month. The band subsequently canceled its upcoming tour.
