Linkin Park discuss the future of the band following Chester Bennington’s tragic death

The Numb singer sadly passed away after committing suicide on July 20, on what would have been close friend and Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell’s birthday.

Chris passed away in May, with his sad death also being ruled a suicide. 

The group have now broken their silence on the sudden passing their frontman and friend, and discussed the future the much-loved band with their 5.58m Twitter followers.

Penning a message to the singer, they wrote: “Dear Chester.

“Our hearts are broken. The shock waves grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened.

“You touched so many lives, maybe even more than you realised. In the past few days we’ve seen an outpouring love and support, both public and private, from around the world.”

Bennington, 41, had six children, three with his wife Talinda. The band added: “Talinda and the family appreciate it, and want the world to know that you were the best husband, son, and father. The family will never be whole without you.

“Talking with you about the years ahead together, your excitement was infections. Your absence leaves a voice that can never be filled – a boisterous, funny, ambitions, creative, king, generous voice in the room is missing.”

They went on to say that he put his demons on display through the band’s music and lyrics – which taught them to be “more human”. 

They then discussed the future the band, writing: “Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable. While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each our lives was made better by you.
