Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda has released a music video for the song “Running From My Shadow”, taken from his upcoming solo album “Post Traumatic” Asked how difficult it was to write the songs for the album, many of which dealt with the death of LINKIN PARK singer Chester Bennington, Shinoda said: “Life was difficult; music was easy. The music made things easier.” Shinoda played his first solo shows since the death of Bennington on May 12 at the KROQ Weenie Roast in Los Angeles and May 13 at the Identity LA festival. He played “In The End” on piano and let the fans sing most of Chester’s vocal parts, though at times he came in and sang his parts.

Jonathan Davis’ forthcoming debut solo album, Black Labyrinth, was largely inspired by the Ganzfeld Experiment, a form of sensory deprivation used to test psychic abilities (a.k.a. ESP). To celebrate the record’s release, the Korn frontman is giving 20 lucky fans the opportunity to undergo the experiment in Seal Beach, California, on May 25th, and he will be leading the experience himself. Davis stresses that the experiments are meant to be entertaining, rather than overly serious. “I wanted something different, and to be more immersive,” Davis concluded. “I think I’ve pretty much pulled that off now.”
