In a recent interview with Ultimate-Guitar.com, Ryan and Amir of Julien K talked about Chester's participation in the making of their upcoming album Death To Analog, as well as all their involvement in Chester's side-project Dead By Sunrise. Ryan: "He (Bennington) came in and was basically working for Julien K when this thing was kind of in its nucleus stage. He was sort of teaching me and coaching me to sing and giving me the confidence to actually be a singer because in Orgy I wasn't a lead singer. This was kind of a nebulous group of people creating and writing music and he was sort of part of that group and one day he walked in with an acoustic guitar and he goes 'Hey I want you guys to record my side project.' And Amir and I looked at each other and we were like 'That's awesome. O.K. That's a great opportunity to work with Chester, who is our favorite singer in the world." Ryan then elaborated about the differences between Julien K and Dead By Sunrise; "It turned into literally in a few days Julien K became Chester's band Dead by Sunrise so we literally stopped our record and recorded a record with Chester which is complete. Of course, the reason that didn't come out is because you have the Linkin Park record in front of it. There was a little bit of back up in timing and complications but basically Julien K is two bands. With Chester singing it's Dead by Sunrise and when I sing it's Julien K. Julien K is decidedly a bit more Electro but Dead by Sunrise a little bit heavier, a little bit more rocky and it's still got, Chester loves Electro music and he loves what we're doing." Julien K plans to complete the recording of their new album by the end of 2007, while Dead By Sunrise's album is still believed to see the light of day sometime in 2008.
