Chester Bennington’s side project Dead By Sunrise has been put off for now to tour and promote for Linkin Park. He says they’re a few years into the project, but Linkin Park comes first. Here’s what Chester had to say:

I was actually pretty deep into recording my other project, called Dead By Sunrise, and we were really far into the record,” he said. “And then, you know, LP got together and we all decided that we wanted to make a record and start as soon as possible. So Linkin Park takes the lead, you know what I mean? So I stopped working on the record and I’ll be finishing it up while we’re touring over these next couple of years, and it’ll be ready to go out.

Oasis will hit the studios July 3rd to start recording their 7th studio album. They hope to have it finished recording by the end of the year and have it released as well as a tour next summer. Stay tuned for further details.

Trapt as posted a new song “Stay Alive” on Ultimate-Guitar.com. The new song will be featured on their live album, set to be released on August 21st. They plan to start recording a new album later this year. Trapt also plans on releasing 9 live videos online to their fans for free.

Halifax has a great sound and progession from song to song. They are a fast band with alot of energy filled lyrics and guitar rifs. Their type of music makes it really hard not to just start singing at the top of your lungs. Halifax is a great band to add to your rotation of music. Their album, The Inevitability of a Strange World, is out in stores now. My favorite song off the album is Anthem For Tonight.

In a recent post on myspace by Knights In Paris:

So I figured it was time to catch some of you up to speed as to where Nick and I (Mike) are at. I’ve been on tour for the past week or so, but before I left we were able to get a bunch of progress done. It’s been a little hard sometimes for us to physically get together with both of us doing our other bands, but we’ve been making it happen, sometimes even over the phone we end up writing haha. Right now we’ve got some really great material shaping up. Before I left we finished a new jam that Nick and I are really excited about, and since I left for tour we have another one in the works that is definitely gonna be something new for both of us, I guess I could describe it as a lot more on the dancier side. But so far what we have has a lot of variety which is what I always like to strive for. While I’m on tour these couple weeks I’ll be working on writing lyrics a bunch, I already have a good amount done and it’s coming together well.

Lastly, as for recording. We’ve been doing home demos on Nick’s computer. They work for the time being, but are not something we’d wanna release as our actual tracks. So given that, we’re going to shoot to head into the studio sometime in August to lay down i’d hope at least 4 to 6 songs and then we’ll have something for all of you to hear. In the mean time, we’ll see if we can get at least a snipet of something for you to hear that we’ve done up here so you can kinda have an idea where this is going.

Mike

(p.s. If any of you have any questions or just wanna shoot the shit, Nick and I will try to answer this page as much as we possibly can)

This band really rocks it.

RED is spending 2007 attacking concert halls for over 250 shows, joining forces with hard-hitters like Flyleaf, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin and Sevendust. If I dont say so myself,they have great energy and fantastic stage presence for a new band and definitely can hold their own.
