It's been a heavy year for Mike Shinoda.

The Linkin Park vocalist sat down with Rolling Stone to discuss his first ever solo-album Post-Traumatic, in which he details the struggles he's gone through since his bandmate Chester Bennington died by suicide last July.

Though he says the album isn't entirely entirely about Bennington, most of Shinoda's songs explore the challenges he's had in trying to understand himself without his larger-than-life friend by his side.
