'[It's] really dark ... like post-apocalyptic 'Blade Runner' meets LSD,' Linkin Park's vocalist Chester Bennington says of his side project, Dead by Sunrise.

Linkin Park's frontman Chester Bennington has a side project called Dead by Sunrise, and he recently opened up to MTV about what to expect from his new band. "[It's] really dark ... like post-apocalyptic 'Blade Runner' meets LSD," so the vocalist said.

"I came up with the band name because in the beginnings of making this album, I was partying ... we'll call it partying. It wasn't much fun, but we partied a lot," Chester explained further. "The name kind of evolved from that lifestyle."

With this new band, Chester will drop a studio album called "Out of Ashes" in September. He recently shot a music video at California's Vasquez Rocks Natural Park for "Crawl Back In", the album's first single. "It's a song about questioning your authenticity. ... I wonder how many of my own thoughts are really my own, and how much influence do the people around me have on the person I am," he commented on what the track deals with.

The songs in the album will not only carry dark lyrics but also have some "very light sides." Chester gushed, "There are songs about being in love and there's songs about hating people. It's a very strange juxtaposition. And that represents what had been going on in my life over the past couple of years."

Beside working on Dead by Sunrise's debut album, Chester Bennington has also crafted "New Divide", a soundtrack for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", with Linkin Park, and will take his new band on an upcoming Linkin Park tour. "[Linkin Park] is leaving for Europe and Japan, and Dead by Sunrise is going to be joining us on tour, and we're actually going to be jumping in the middle of LP's set, playing a few songs, then jumping out and letting LP finish out the set," he shared.
