Dead By Sunrise @ MTV Ulalume Festival



Dead By Sunrise is a side project from Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington. Although his singing style is the same in this band, the music is a bit more rock oriented and less rap-rock.  The band is touring behind their debut album, Out Of Ashes, which was released a week or so ago. But you’d never have known it.  All the kids up front were singing along to every song.



I started off this set with my 70-200/2.8 on my 40D but that combo proved too long so I quickly switched back to my Tamron 17-50/2.8 in between song two and three. Chester and the lead guitarist tended to stay at the front of the stage, so I didn’t have any need for the extra reach. As usual, my 24-70/2.8 was mounted on my 1Ds Mk II. Lighting was fairly straight forward, but better than the lights for Kid Cudi.

    Nice set Kyle but you didn’t post any of Amir or Brandon (other guitarist and bassist). =) Not to mention the other two that I didn’t get either.
