We know him from his hip-hop-leaning parallel project Fort Minor, but above all as the co-leader of Linkin Park, one of the main driving forces behind the American nu-metal movement at the turn of the century.
And then, everything changed last summer with the suicide of Chester Bennington, his brother in arms. In early January, Californian Mike Shinoda released a handful of intimate songs under his own name as an EP with a revealing title: Post Traumatic EP. His debut solo album, expected in June, will have the same name and most likely the same goal – to try to rebuild and exorcise his emotions through music. ‘It’s a journey out of grief and darkness, not into grief and darkness’, as his announcement explains. His path to healing will be built on the support and applause of his fans.
While waiting for his new album due on the 15th of June, you can now discover About You, his new single:
Mike Shinoda and much more artists will be present at Rock en Seine. The festival in the National Domain of Saint Cloud, at the edge of Paris.
