6 months after the death of Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda has released 3 new songs. These tracks (that are not part of Fort Minor and Linkin Park) are part of the ‘Post Traumatic’ EP.
Mike also released a very heartfelt statement on the solo tracks, explaining how art is where he goes when he needs to “sort through the complexity and confusion of the road ahead”
The past six months have been a rollercoaster. Amidst the chaos, I’ve started to feel an intense gratitude—for your tributes + messages of support, for the career you have allowed me to have, and for the simple opportunity to create.
Today, I’m sharing three songs I wrote + produced, with visuals I flimed, painted and edited myself. At its core, grief is a personal, intimate experience. As such, this is not Linkin Park nor Fort Minor, it’s just me.
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.
The tracks are a very honest representation of Mikes Grieving process from a “Place to Start” which is a beautiful, but also dark song to the anger fuelled “Over Again”
Mike has announced that Linkin Park will continue. While a fan asked in a recent Q & A “Mike what will happen with Linkin Park in the future”
Shinoda replied, “I have every intention on continuing with LP, and the guys feel the same. We have a lot of rebuilding to do, and questions to answer, so it’ll take time.”
