Dead by Sunrise started to form in 2005 while Chester Bennington was writing songs for Linkin Park's album ''Minutes to Midnight''. According to Bennington, "I came up with a few songs that felt and sounded really good, but I knew they weren't right stylistically for Linkin Park. They were darker and moodier than anything I'd come up with for the band. So I decided to work on them on my own rather than turn them over and have them transformed into Linkin Park tracks. Debut album (ft members of '90s synth-rock act Orgy and electro-metal band Julien-K) just came out and includes the singles 'Crawl back in' and 'fire'.
