“CRAWLING” — Don’t miss out on this emotional Linkin Park cover version by Dream State

Drop everything you’re doing right now, because you HAVE to listen to this. Take a moment to listen to this incredible cover version that UK band Dream State have done. You can’t help but love this version, and you can’t help but think of him: The passing of Chester Bennington has ripped a massive hole into rock music and countless hearts out there, it has created a void that cannot be filled — and it is still difficult trying to let the information of what happened sink in, and trying to accept the facts brings a heavy sadness with it that isn’t always easy to deal with. Dream State’s cover version of Linkin Park’s “Crawling” is a very beautiful and emotional, both fragile and heavy interpretation of the song that makes you pause for a few minutes to remember Chester and be grateful for the music Linkin Park have given us.

This cover version is part of Hopeless Records’ new compilation called “Songs That Saved My Life” to be released November 9 featuring artists such as Neck Deep, Against Me! and Taking Back Sunday. The album’s proceeds will be going towards mental health and suicide prevention organisations Crisis Text Line, Hope For The Day, To Write Love On Her Arms and The Trevor Project.
