Linkin Park Singer Goes Solo
According to Bennington, the songs on Out of Ashes developed as he was writing tracks for the follow-up to Linkin Park's 2007 LP Minutes to Midnight.
"I came up with a few songs that felt and sounded really good, but I knew they weren't right stylistically for Linkin Park," Bennington says in a press release announcing Out of Ashes. "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."
