Sunrise on fire

Finally, after years of waiting, the fabulous singer Chester Bennington presents his solo-project to us, teaming up with some great musicians. Besides him, Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck of the band Julien-K are part of the band Dead By Sunrise.

So, there is much to tell about these guys, about the founding of the band, the reason why the band exists and why they're called Dead By Sunrise. To not bore you out, I will try my best to keep this short but I would love to write as much as I have on mind about it. So, please, please, don't leave me yet!

I am only here to tell you what has happened so far, which is not much but enough to make us all excited for the record, which will fall from the sky in September. It took them a very long time to work on the record, as everybody can notice, since Chester's confession (that he's got another band besides LP) was back in late 2004. At first, it was only Chester but as he told in an interview recently, the guys from Julien-K apparently played around with his music and he fell immediately in love with the new sound of his songs, so he decided to team up with his friends.

Today, they're called Dead By Sunrise and are about to release a record in September. They already played a show on July 4th, during the opening of a new Club Tattoo store in Miracle Mile, Las Vegas. Some great videos of the show are online on youtube, revealing a few great songs of the upcoming album in an acoustic version.

Maybe it was just me but a few months ago when Mike and Chester were talking about DBS and that their album will be released later the year, I didn't believe it because Chester often said when the album would come out but it has never happened. I kept an eye on it, watched what happened and now, as LP is working on a new record, Chester uses the 'spare time' to finally release the DBS album.

So, they're going to release the first single soonish. The videos for the songs 'Let down' and 'Crawl back in' are already done, so it's just a matter of time that you can watch them on their myspace profile.

According to Chester's wife Talinda, Dead By Sunrise will play some shows in England, Germany and Japan, during Linkin Park's set.

As soon as something happens, it will be on here, so stay tuned in :D
