Chester Bennington is coming out with a solo album. Since 2005, the crooning half of lead vocals of the nu-metal rock band has been working on his own material.
Drawning on a myriad of emotional experiences the album will touch on a desolate time in the artist’s life. “We were suing Warner Bros, which was not fun, and I was getting divorced. I kind of found myself re-experiencing with a lot of drugs, so it was a darker period,” he told Blender magazine.
The album, which will be released under the band name Dead By Sunrise, is planned to drop in the Fall 2009.
In other news, Linkin Park hopes to release a new album in Spring 2010. Bennington tells the magazine that the album will be a musical variety on this record. “I think Linkin Park fans are ready to be hit with something they don’t expect, but it still kicks a** enough to for them to like it.”
