A year after the death of Linkin Park's lead singer Chester Bennington, his band mates are mourning the loss of their brother, People reported.

It quoted Mike Shinoda, Joe Hahn, Dave Farrell, Rob Bourdon, and Brad Delson's tribute post on Instagram,"“It has been a year since your passing — a surreal rotation of grief, heartbreak, refusal, and recognition. And yet it [still] feels like you are close by, surrounding us with your memory and your light. Your one-of-a-kind spirit has authored an indelible imprint on our hearts — our jokes, our joy, and our tenderness.”
