Watch Linkin Park’s Fan-Made ‘One More Light’ Video
Linkin Park have released a new video for their track “One More Light,” which was made by their fans as a tribute to late frontman Chester Bennington. The band hadn’t planned to release the title track of their latest album as a single, but it’s become a fan favorite since Bennington took his own life in July. Watch the new video above, made by Nicola Drilling and the “LP street soldiers around the world.” The previous promo, which was released last month, can be seen below.
“We now find ourselves on the receiving end,” guitarist and songwriter Mike Shinoda said on release of the first video last month. “In memorial events, art, videos, and images, fans all over the world have gravitated towards this song as their declaration of love and support for the band and the memory of our dear friend, Chester. We are so very grateful and can’t wait to see you again.”
Joe Hahn, who directed the earlier video, said: “It has been incredibly emotional to work on this, and especially to watch it. I feel that by doing it, we not only faced some of our biggest fears, but it enabled us to use our talents to bring some light to people that need it.”
Linkin Park and guests will appear at a one-night-only tribute to Bennington on Oct. 27 at the Holywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The event will raise money for Music for Relief’s One More Light fund, set up in memory of the frontman.
The band had planned to play their previously-arranged tour of Japan in November, but they said in a statement last night (Oct. 3) that the shows had been canceled, adding: “Until now, we have not communicated about our November shows because we sincerely wished to play, even in the wake of Chester’s passing. We are working each day to grieve, heal, and work towards stepping on stage together without our dear friend. We are so grateful for your love and support. Our sincere appreciation for your kind understanding.”
