Linkin Park have just released a live version of “Crawling” that will give you goosebumps and leave you in tears.


The song is about suffering from inner pain and substance abuse and you can really feel it in Chester’s voice while he embraces his fans.

“Crawling is about feeling like I had no control over myself in terms of drugs and alcohol, hence the line ‘These wounds they will not heal,’ ” he said in a 2009 interview.

Linkin Park released the new video as part of their upcoming live album, “One More Light”, which is a document of their final tour with Chester Bennington.

One More Light: Live is the thirteenth live CD compilation by the American rock band and their first release since the death of lead singer Chester Bennington. It was recorded during the band’s One More Light Tour in 2017.

Linkin Park started their album tour in Buenos Aires, Argentina on May 6, 2017 at the Maximus Festival. They continued on with playing three more shows on the South American run before returning back to the United States to play a few promo shows including an performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

Linkin Park played an impromptu performance of “One More Light” on the show which was dedicated to the late Chris Cornell, who passed away almost a day before. Mike Shinoda stated that Chester Bennington was hit hard by Cornell’s death.

The band set off for a one-month trip to Europe to play a total of 16 shows. The European Tour began in Bretigny, France on June 9, 2017. The tour took the band to numerous festivals including Download Paris, Hellfest, Impact, Southside and more. Linkin Park played an two-night back-to-back shows in London before the tour came to an end in Birmingham, England where was Bennington’s final performance with Linkin Park.

The band was scheduled to play in Manchester the following day but cancelled their performance due to the venue still being damaged from the May 2017 terrorist attack that occurred during Ariana Grande’s concert.

On July 20, 2017, Chester Bennington committed suicide by hanging in his Palos Verdes Estates home. In the wake of his death, Linkin Park cancelled the rest of the One More Light tour, which was set to begin a week after Bennington’s death.

The live album captures the performances of 16 songs that Bennington played with Linkin Park during the tour.
