"Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened," they share. "We’re trying to remind ourselves that the demons who took you away from us were always part of the deal. After all, it was the way you sang about those demons that made everyone fall in love with you in the first place."

The band sends love to Bennington's widow and children and signs off, "We love you, and miss you so much. Until we see you again."

Bennington and Linkin Park released their debut, Hybrid Theoryin 2000. The album was certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America, signifying 10 million copies sold.
