Linkin Park announce new live album dedicated to late frontman Chester Bennington

'One More Light Live' will be released on December 15

Linkin Park have announced a new live album in memory of the late frontman Chester Bennington.

Bennington passed away in July after taking his own life. Last month saw the likes of System Of A Down and Blink-182 join the band for an all-star tribute gig dedicated to the singer.

Now, ‘One More Light Live’ will include live recordings taken from Bennington’s final tour with the band in support of this year’s ‘One More Light’ album. It features Stormzy and will be released on December 15.

“We dedicate this live album to our brother Chester who poured his heart and soul into ‘One More Light’,” the band write in a statement. “Chester shared with us that he felt that this was the best tour we had even done.”

“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.”

Read the band’s full statement about the release below:

“We dedicate this live album to our brother Chester who poured his heart and soul into one more light. After we finished recording the album, we joked with Chester that – since he had delivered so many stunning performances in the studio – he had set the bar extra high to produce that alchemy on stage each night. Not surprisingly, he welcomed the challenge.

The shows we played together during the early summer of 2017 were extraordinary. Chester shared with us that he felt this was the best tour we had ever done. The camaraderie and joy we experienced on stage reflected our deep connection with each other, with our fans, and with the music.

Every night before walking out onto the stage, we would huddle, get focused, and share whatever last-second remarks popped into our heads. Chester always took it upon himself to turn the name of the city where we were playing into a first-rate run. This was our ritual. Best of all, it was a moment to express our gratitude that we were living our dream.

Chester never forgot to express his appreciation to our crew – the men and women who traveled the world with us, making our dream into reality night after night. Without them, these shows would not have been possible.

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. 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.”
