Linkin Park is releasing a new live album that the band is dedicating to late member Chester Bennington.

The group says their last live shows before Bennington died in July were “extraordinary”. The One More Light Live album will be released on December 15.

The songs were performed on the One More Light World Tour, which kicked off in May in South America and Europe. The US leg of the tour was canceled after Bennington hanged himself a day before the tour was to begin.

The band said with his voice, Bennington turned “pain into catharsis, authenticity into art, and passion into connection”. For fans who have never been to a Linkin Park show, the band hopes the live album “gives you a glimpse into how magical these shows were”.
