Capturing a ‘journey out of grief and darkness’, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda returns to the scene neither along Linkin Park, nor as Fort Minor, but with a debut solo album called ‘Post Traumatic, which will be out on the 15th June.
Immediately following January’s three-song ‘Post Traumatic’ EP, which was his first release since the passing of Chester Bannington, Mike also trumpeted the arrival of the new LP with videos for two of the album tracks, ‘Crossing a Line’ and ‘Nothing Makes Sense Anymore’, which you can listen to below.
The ‘Post Traumatic’ EP and LP capture a tone of confliction and redemption during Shinoda’s experience with loss and grieving as well as the healing process. In a statement about the debut solo album, he says: “It’s a journey out of grief and darkness, not into grief and darkness. If people have been through something similar, I hope they feel less alone. If they haven’t been through this, I hope they feel grateful.” You can pre-order the album here.
On top of this announcement, Mike Shinoda will embark on numerous solo shows this summer, in support of ‘Post Traumatic’, including UK’s own Reading and Leeds Festival, where he joins the Main Stage roster along side Kendrick Lamar, Sum 41, Skindred and Dua Lipa, to name a few.
