How Linkin Park Put Chester Bennington Back In The Charts

Linkin Park’s album Meteora is set to return to Australian charts for the first time in 20 years.

The band have released a deluxe version of their 2003 album that was home to the hits Numb, Breaking the Habit and Somewhere I Belong.

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda raided the archives for live material and video footage, as well as finding multiple unreleased and finished tracks featuring late singer Chester Bennington.

Tracks including Lost were in contention to make the original album, then shelved.

The reissue comes in a super deluxe version with four vinyl albums and a triple CD release.

Talking to Behind the Hits, Mike said he had kept an eye on what fans wanted from the anniversary project.

“All of the things that you’re going to come up with, with the exception of touring, everything else that you can imagine that you’re excited about – shockingly – is going to happen.”
