Two months after the tragic death of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, the band is finally ready to start rebuilding. Today, Linkin Park shared an official music video for "One More Light" as a tribute to the late singer directed by Joe Hahn and Mark Fiore.
“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," said Mike Shinoda. "We are so very grateful and can’t wait to see you again.”
Last month, Linkin Park revealed that a public event to honor the Bennington was in the works. This morning, the band announced that a "one-night-only celebration" has been scheduled at Hollywood Bowl in L.A. on October 27. Tickets will be available to purchase here on September 22 at 10:00 a.m. PST. Bennington's son Draven recently appeared in a series of videos in support of National Suicide Prevention Week.
“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," said Hahn. "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.”
