Linkin Park‘s Chester Bennington died today at the age of 41, after reportedly hanging himself at home in California. Social media was soon flooded with reactions from fellow artists, and band member Mike Shinoda confirmed the news in a tweet of his own. The band has otherwise not yet commented on the tragedy, but early tonight it did a post a wordless tribute to Bennington on its social media accounts, which you see below.
