Nu-metal band Linkin Park's Chester Bennington found hanged

"Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true", Linkin Park's guitarist and main songwriter Mike Shinoda wrote on Twitter.

Bennington was close friends with the late rocker Chris Cornell and sang a rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" at his funeral. The singer leaves behind his six children, and wife, model Talinda Ann. It would have been Mr Cornell's 53rd birthday the same day Bennington killed himself. The lead singer of Soundgarden committed suicide earlier this year and was found by a bodyguard on May 18, 2017. The band, which started in Agoura Hills, gained fame with their debut album "Hybrid Theory" in 2000.

In 2004, the band collaborated with Jay-Z on the EP "Collision Course".

Pop Sugar reported that Bennington first talked publicly about his suicidal thoughts after divorcing his first wife in 2005.

The band were set to continue their One More Light world tour in North America, with a date at The Xfinity Center in MA on Saturday 27 July. Notably, as per TMZ, the singer in the past had confessed that he had considered committing suicide because he was sexually abused by an older male. I honesty don't think I'd be in a band if.

The band's most recent album One More Light was released in May this year.

"The Cornell family is overwhelmed by the heartbreaking news about Chester Bennington which tragically comes so soon after their family's own loss", said a Cornell family spokesperson.

Chester Bennington, the lead singer of Linkin Park, has died, the Associated Press reports.
