Fans all over the world have continued to express their grief over the shocking death of Linkin Park front man Chester Bennington.

In a statement, the pop-punk band said, "Blink-182 is wrecked by the loss of our friend and unbelievable musician Chester Bennington".

News of Bennington's death came just hours after Linkin Park released its latest music video, "Talking to Myself". The band's popular debut, "Hybrid Theory", checked in at No. 27.

After earning critical acclaim and commercial success with "Hybrid Theory", the band returned with "Somewhere I Belong" off follow-up "Meteora" to prove it was no fluke.

This comes after Nielsen Music reported Linkin Park streams increased 730 per cent in the U.S. on the day Chester's death was announced. Their hits include "In the End" and "Numb".

The announcement comes after Linkin Park confirmed the North American leg of their "One More Light" tour will not be going ahead.

In the first public statement since their frontman's death, Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Dave Farrell, Joe Hahn and Rob Bourdon, write that their "hearts are broken" and say Bennington's "absence leaves a void that can never be filled". "Our thoughts go out to all those affected", Live Nation said in a statement to E!
