It’s hard to believe, but it’s almost a year has already passed since one-time Linkin Park front man Chester Bennington’s death. No doubt, tributes will start pouring in as it gets even closer. Independent rock band A Life To Live recently paid its tribute to Bennington with a cover of Linkin Park’s heart-wrenching single ‘One More Light’ and a video to boot. That video is streaming online now here.
Work on the video started this past January, but the band said it held off releasing the video until now because it wanted to wait for the right time. That right time was this week as it is so close to the one year anniversary of the release of the song’s namesake album — May 19. Band front man Chris Musser and his band mates — Tim Donofrio (drums) and Branden Kreider (bass, lead guitar) — released a collective statement about the song’s release, saying they were looking forward to the songs release.
“We are incredibly excited and proud to release this long overdue tribute to Chester,” the statement reads. “We wanted to take this opportunity to not only pay our respects to such an immeasurable influence on us personally and the rock world at large, but also do our part to raise awareness for mental health. I have been open about my struggles with depression in the past in hopes of letting others know it’s okay to talk about it because you are not in this alone. Any and all proceeds made from our rendition of ‘One More Light’ will be going to charity in support of mental health awareness.”
