DEAD BY SUNRISE: Chester Bennington’s New Lease On Life

Best known as the voice of multi-platinum hard rock band Linkin Park, Chester Bennington has a multitude of other musical ideas he’d like to get off his chest. And in his six-piece group Dead By Sunrise, Bennington has found the perfect vehicle for his ruminations on life, love, loss, hope, faith — as exemplified by the diverse and emotional musical offerings of DBS' strong debut album, Out Of Ashes.
While few were aware of the project until earlier this year, Dead By Sunrise has actually been four years in the making. Bennington and his bandmates — Anthony "Fu" Valcic, Julien-K's Brandon Belsky and Elias Andra and Orgy's Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck — have been raring to go for ages, but Linkin Park's touring and promotional duties for their mega-successful Minutes To Midnight kept the vocalist occupied for a three-year stretch.
Thankfully, a break in Linkin Park’s schedule finally gave Dead By Sunrise room to run, and ShockHound caught up with Bennington right before DBS’s recent NYC gig to chat about the group, their new album and their future. And yes, they do have one — Bennington’s already writing material for the next Dead By Sunrise release. Let's just hope we don't wait four more years for a follow-up
