Article Excerpt

Bennington has been working with producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Daughtry) on the debut disc of his side project Dead by Sunrise. He said he wrote all of the material for the band's inaugural offering with a very specific mission in mind.

"I wanted to make sure the record was different from the Linkin Park record," he said. "It's not as hard as it sounds. If you take Mike [Shinoda] out of the equation — because I personally feel he's created our signature sound — it automatically sounds different. It's more of a standard rock record. There are elements to it where you can tell where the inspiration comes from, but it's pure rock with melody."

Dead by Sunrise — also featuring Orgy's Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck — have been working on the LP over the last couple of years and should be finished tracking the disc sometime in early 2009, with plans to release the set in spring.

"I would say that, in terms of working with the band, it all works very similar to the way Linkin Park works," he said. "I've written all of the songs personally, on an acoustic guitar, and we take it from its acoustic guitar level and build it. Whether it's a heavy rock track or a ballad, or taking all the rock elements out and creating primarily an electronic-driven track, we do it together."
