Bennington committed suicide at the age of 41 on July 20 at his home in the Los Angeles area, leaving behind a wife and six children.
Papa Roach frontman Jacoby Shaddix has admitted that he contemplated suicide while recording the band’s 2012 album The Connection.
“I was just an emotional wreck, couldn’t do nothing, man. I was just paralyzed emotionally. Musically, I was just stunned,” he told the Associated Press. “I didn’t even want to work on the record. I was just like, ‘I just can’t do this.’ My producer’s like, ‘The best thing you do right now is write about exactly what’s going on, just tell it and be a hundred percent completely honest about what’s going on in your life.”
“In the End” appeared on Linkin Park’s debut album Hybrid Theory. Papa Roach last released Crooked Teeth earlier this year.
