Linkin Park co-founder Mike Shinoda announced details of his forthcoming solo jaunt and his first tour since the suicide of the Chester Bennington in 2017.

Shinoda, who released his deeply personal Post Traumatic EP last month will headline the 2018 Monster Energy Outbreak Tour to support. The 20-plus date North American trek will kick off in Montreal on Oct. 10 and will pay a visit to the Fillmore in Detroit on Nov. 16.

In addition to his performance, Shinoda will also display art pieces he created during the recording of Post Traumatic. In a statement, Shinoda says that he hopes to "inspire" and offer "reflection," going on to say, "The search for meaning is boundless, and art is often one of our best vehicles.”
