Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda to Release Debut Solo Album 'Post Traumatic'
Linkin Park co-founder, vocalist and guitarist Mike Shinoda announced his forthcoming debut album Post Traumatic Thursday (March 29), slated for release June 15. He also dropped two new singles that will be included on the album, "Crossing a Line" and "Nothing Makes Sense Anymore," as well as an accompanying -- and relatively uplifting -- video for "Crossing a Line."
Earlier this year, Shinoda released his debut Post Traumatic EP, which he wrote while reflecting on Chester Bennington's death last summer. Shinoda's first solo performance since his bandmate's death will be at Identity LA Festival in May, and he will also be performing at Reading & Leeds Festival later this summer. More show announcements are expected to follow soon.
While Shinoda's solo work features the rock/hip-hop blend that makes Linkin Park unique, his personal sound also includes more pop and electronic elements that were heard in the band's more recent material.
