This past July, the world lost a bright light in Chester Bennington, lead singer and co-frontman for the nu-metal band Linkin Park. As one of the world’s foremost figures in music, having created a brand new sound, his lost was felt throughout the world and lingers on even now.
Today, Linkin Park releases the official music video for their song “One More Light,” featuring various footage of the band and Chester interacting with fans and performing live, highlighting Chester’s own light as a person and icon.
“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. As we move forward to the Hollywood Bowl show and beyond, I think about the people that connect with the band, outside and inside our circle. This video is a gesture of good will to the people that want that connection.”
– JOE HAHN, Director
“One More Light was written with the intention of sending love to those who lost someone. We now find ourselves on the receiving end. 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.”
– MIKE SHINODA, founder of Linkin Park
