Dead by Sunrise, the new band fronted by Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, have announced three upcoming live shows to celebrate the release of their debut album, Out of Ashes, due from Warner Bros. Records on October 13th, 2009.
The band, which is Bennington on vocals, guitarists Ryan Shuck and Amir Derakh (from Orgy/Julien-K), bassist Brandon Belsky, drummer Elias Anda (also from Julien-K), and keyboardist Anthony Valcic, will perform at Wasted Space in the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas on October 1st, at The Gramercy Theatre in New York City on October 14th, and at the Roxy in Los Angeles on October 19th.
Fans attending these very special shows will be treated to songs from Out of Ashes, which was produced by Howard Benson (Motorhead, My Chemical Romance). The album’s first single, “Crawl Back In,” continues its assault on Rock radio, after being the most-added track for four consecutive weeks in September. The video for “Crawl Back In” is viewable at www.myspace.com/deadbysunrise.
As previously announced, Dead by Sunrise will perform also at MTV’s first annual “Ulalume” Halloween festival on October 23rd, 2009, at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, alongside Paramore, AFI, and Kid Cudi.

Chester Bennington’s Dead By Sunrise announce Fall Release

Chester Bennington , lead singer for the band Linkin Park, has put the finishing touches on OUT OF ASHES, the debut album from his new band Dead By Sunrise. The album is tentatively scheduled for a fall release through Warner Bros. Records.

The band, which is Bennington on vocals, guitarists Ryan Shuck and Amir Derakh (from Orgy/Julien-K), bassist Brandon Belsky, drummer Elias Anda (also from Julien-K), and keyboardist Anthony Valcic, recorded OUT OF ASHES in Los Angeles with producer Howard Benson (Motorhead, My Chemical Romance).

Bennington says that the music he wrote for Dead by Sunrise is darker, sexier, and more personal than anything he’s done before. “It’s got me all over it,” he says. “This is the music I hear in my head.” Indeed the creative freedom that Bennington felt making OUT OF ASHES is evident on songs like “Crawl Back In,” “Let Down,” and “Walking in Circles.” “There are no hip-hop influences at all on this record, which is obviously a big difference,” he says. “Also, the amount of vocal layering and use of harmony really showcase my voice in a new way. I was involved in the entire process of making the record, including the programming and the production, which was not only a great educational experience, it was very empowering. I’m really excited that the album is finally going to see the light of day!”
