Mike Shinoda has unveiled a new version of his 2018 solo album Post Traumatic.
Originally released five years ago on June 15 – and written after the tragic loss of his bandmate Chester Bennington in 2017 – the Linkin Park man is celebrating the anniversary of his excellent debut solo LP with a remastered version, along with a video for Hold It Together.
“It’s been 5 years since the release of Post Traumatic,” he says. “This album was one of the toughest and most cathartic and rewarding projects I’ve undertaken.
“In celebration, I will be releasing a new remastered version of the album on all streaming platforms (out tonight). We also made a video for Hold It Together, (out tomorrow) which was the only track from the album that didn’t get a visual.
“I am so grateful to have been able to share these songs and perform them for you. Thank you, as always, for your support.”
Upon Post Traumatic’s original release in 2018, we said in our review that it was “more than an album for Chester. It’s Mike showing off his superb songwriting talents, taking what he’d started with his alternative side-project Fort Minor into new territories. Given the turmoil this record was created in, that’s an impressive feat.”
