Brief Bio: And now, stepping outside of Linkin Park on Out Of Ashes, the first album from his new project, Dead By Sunrise – Bennington, Ryan Shuck and Amir Derakh, formerly of Orgy and current Julien-K members, Brandon Belsky, Elias Andra, and Anthony “FU” Valcic – Bennington gives fans a revealing look at the man behind the voice. “It was just me writing the lyrics this time around, so I was very straight to the point, very forward, and very personal with the lyrics for this record,” Bennington says of his first endeavor outside Linkin Park. “I got to the point where I thought, ‘Okay, it’s time to be real.’” Just how real surprised even Bennington. “‘Let Down’ was about the experience of getting divorced,” he says. “I know who I am, that I’m a romantic person, and that I like being in love. I don’t want to repeat the same things that happened to me in my previous relationship in the next one.” Dead by Sunrise’s debut CD, Out of Ashes, is in stores on October 13th.  [ END ]
