The memory of Chester Bennington will undoubtedly live on through the music of Linkin Park, and the band are set to remember their vocalist today with the arrival of new live album One More Light: Live, which you can hear right now.
Arriving through Warner, the album's 16 tracks were recorded live on the band's "One More Light World Tour." The band cancelled the tour's North American leg upon frontman Bennington's suicide.
The band released the following statement about the album upon its announcement:
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.
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.
