Linkin Park’s singer Mike Shinoda teased the release of three news songs including visuals for today (Thursday, January 25th) on his social media channels. Apparently the solo effort is not linked to his side project Fort Minor. As the fan site Linkin Park Association found out, the songs might be part of an EP called “Post Traumatic EP”. The heartbreaking title suggests that the songs may deal with the traumatic experience of losing Linkin Park’s singer Chester Bennington to suicide.

Mike Shinoda already performed the ballad “Looking for an Answer” during the band’s big tribute concert for Chester Bennington at the Hollywood Bowl last year, thus we have a feeling that it will be one of the songs on the EP. Of course we will keep you updated once the songs are released, so stay tuned for more! Meanwhile you can watch the stunning performance of “Looking for an Answer” below.
Linkin Park have yet to share more info about the future of the band as they need some time off to deal with the death of their band member and close friend. After concentrating on several projects in memory of Chester Bennington as a group, the band members have gone separate ways for now. Bassist Dave Farrell just started the podcast series Member Guest with pro-Golfer Brendan Steele. The first episodes featured M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold and Tré Cool of Green Day.
