DEAD BY SUNRISE — the new band fronted by LINKIN PARK's Chester Bennington — performed the song "Crawl Back In" on the October 13 edition of CBS-TV's "Late Show With David Letterman".Watch video of the appearance below. "Out of Ashes", the debut album from DEAD BY SUNRISE, was released on October 13 via Warner Bros. Records. In a recent interview with Ultimate-Guitar.com, Bennington stated about DEAD BY SUNRISE's highly personal lyrics (covering such topics as his divorce and alcohol addiction), "I think going through it was difficult, but I'm pretty good at writing about stuff. Once I came out with being abused as a child, a lot of those doors opened for me. Now I can write about anything I want. Nobody knew about it until that day. My parents were going, 'What?' It was like, 'Okay, if I can write about that, I can pretty much write about anything.' I would say that I wasn't writing songs about my particular problems while I was going through them during this record. I was writing songs about falling in love, and I was kind of skating around the subject a little bit. After I went through all of that, that's when I started writing very clear and very forward songs about what I went through. 'Crawl Back In' talks about relapsing and how hard that is. 'Condemned' is about that love affair with feeling like shit. It was very strange for me because these ideas just started coming. I don't know if I could have done it if I had was in the middle of it. I try not to change things that much in my songs. If it comes to me, then it comes to me. If it doesn't, then I'll wait a couple of days. After that, I'll just let it go. It's not worth it." As previously announced, DEAD BY SUNRISE will perform also at MTV's first annual "Ulalume" Halloween festival on October 23, 2009, at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, alongside PARAMORE, AFI, and KID CUDI. Their performance will air during a Halloween-themed week on MTV, MTV.com, mtvU, and mtvU.com.
