The surviving members of LINKIN PARK have released a statement thanking fans for their support and announcing plans for a tribute event for their late singer, Chester Bennington.
Bennington died by suicide on July 20. He was 41.
His private funeral service took place on July 29 near his home in Palos Verdes, California. It was attended by five hundred guests, including members of all three bands Bennington sang in: LINKIN PARK, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and DEAD BY SUNRISE.
Earlier today, LINKIN PARK posted the following message on the band's official Twitter account:
"Just wanted to say thank you to all our fans around the world for the tremendous outpouring of love, which has strengthened our spirit during this incredibly difficult time.
"The five of us are so grateful for all of your support as we heal and build the future of LINKIN PARK.
"We are working on a special public event in Los Angeles to honor Chester's memory, and look forward to sharing details with you soon.
"Peace and love."
Bennington had been open with the press and public about his struggles with drugs and alcohol, which landed him in rehab twice around 2006.
Investigators reportedly found no illegal drugs or prescription drugs while searching Bennington's home following his passing, although a partially consumed bottle of alcohol was found in the bedroom where the 41-year-old singer's body was discovered. It will not be clear until a toxicology report is released whether Bennington had any drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
