Linkin Park frontman and epic singer Chester Bennington has passed away at the age of 41 and everyone at SK Viral is in shock.

The lead singer took his own life on the day that his late friend Chris Cornell would have turned 53-years old, which seems to be the only news we have on the passing of Chester.

News of Bennington’s death has sent shockwaves across the music industry and to his devoted fans who mourn his loss. Many have taken to Twitter to pay their respects.

The news broke early this afternoon that Chester Bennington had hung himself at his home in Palos Verdes, just a week before Linkin Park was supposed to launch a North American tour in support of their latest album One More Light. Law enforcement has confirmed that Bennington’s body was found early Thursday morning after a call was made shortly after 9am. The coroner has said that the death is being investigated as a possible suicide.
