Photos and singing

January 13, 2010

Our buddy Fiore grabbed some quick photos from the studio the other day. In between working on vocals, we did a “welcome video” for the new (beta testing now), and took a very handsome photo for Chester’s international Visa, so he can go play some Dead By Sunrise shows in Japan…

  37. BennOda on January 20, 2010 at 6:07 am

    If somebody has asked me:
    “You like a new song from Linkin Park -” Not Alone “?
    I would answer:
    “YEAH! Yes and once again yes! I do not have words to express that that I feel listening to this song” Guys Mike and Chester Know I very much I love Linkin Park and their class songs!!! You cannot know as I love LP you cannot understand as strongly! Because I one such on light which so strongly loves Mike and Chester!
    thank you guys for your cool songs!I love you!
    I could write infinitely about this remarkable group but I am afraid here there will be no place!

  46. MrEnvy999 on January 19, 2010 at 11:30 am

    oops!! i meant “considers” in my last comment, sorry.

  47. MrEnvy999 on January 19, 2010 at 11:27 am

    Looks like the album is in a good progress.But there is one thing that’s been bothering me a lot.I recall that you and your band plan to produce music faster than ever after the release of your fourth studio album. It’s a very good news that all the LP fans will be able to get more LP music than ever, but
    Please remember the statement “quality,not quantity”, which is one of the key elements of your success.
    Other bands prefer throwing out one album every year, regardless of the quality. The LP we want is the one that understandsconsiders putting out an album to be a huge undertaking and not a child’s play.So, I prefer you to be the same as before and take as much as time you would require for an album to get the best out of you. As we all know , patience always pays. Anyway, the studio looks awesome.

  48. linky Egypt on January 19, 2010 at 10:44 am
