Linkin Park debuted new video hours before Bennington’s death announced
The band had been promoting material from their latest album.
Linkin Park had released a new video just hours before Chester Bennington’s death was discovered.
Talking To Myself is taken from the album One More Light which came out in May and the video is a montage of clips from the band’s live shows which features the frontman heavily.
Bandmate Dave Farrell had tweeted the video before he learnt the devastating news and had asked fans what they thought of the song.

He later tweeted just one word, “Heartbroken”, in recognition of his friend’s passing.
