LINKIN PARK vocalist Mike Shinoda has released a music video for the song "Running From My Shadow", taken from his upcoming solo album "Post Traumatic", which is due out June 15.
Shinoda spoke about the writing process for the album saying, "It started in a really dark place. In the beginning, I wasn't leaving my house. It felt very claustrophobic, having lost one of my closest friends and collaborators. We associate who we are, to some degree, with what we do, so I felt very lost."
Shinoda played his first solo shows since the death of his Linkin Park bandmate Chester Bennington on May 12 at the KROQ Weenie Roast in Los Angeles and May 13 at the Identity LA festival. Shinoda mashed up some LINKIN PARK songs along with his solo material. He also played Linkin Park’s "In The End" on piano and let the fans sing most of Chester's vocal parts.
