Hey everyone it's me. Just checking in to get you all caught up on
everything that's going on in my world. There's so much I don't even
know where to start. O.K. so it looks like LP's gonna be done touring
after this summer and we're going back to work on a new record that
will probably come out later 09'. So I think now's a good time to
finish the Dead by Sunrise record. That's really exiting because I've
been waiting for the right time for awhile now. As I'm working on the
record I'll keep you all posted on the progress. Ve' cel is doing very
well and we're gonna be building a street team from the LPU to pass
some stuff out at PR. Everyone on the team gets free Ve'cel clothes
for helping spread the love. If you can't find Ve'cel than go to your
favorite stores and tell them to put on the shelves. Chris Cornell has
been wearing our stuff almost every night on stage and I think that's
really cool. I'm glad people like what we're doing. The shows have
been great and all of the bands are kicking ass and I think I've made
some great new friends like Chris and the guys from SDC. That's the
best part of doing these kinds of tours. I've been on the beach for
like the past week in my mankini. I highly recommend it for it's
offensiveness and the freedom from long shorts that lead to horrifying
tan lines from the knees up. Anyway, that's enough outta me talk to
you guys soon.................C

  1. Thanks Chester for letting us know what's going on. I'm extremely excited to hear about the up and coming release of Dead by Sunrise. The anticipation has been killing me! =D I hope to get to see you in Texas for Project Rev. Thank you again and hope everything remains to rock out for you.

    ~Much love to you and LP,
    Liliana

  8. Sorry for my ignorance but what exactly is a mankini? Sounds interesting, especially if you can call it offensive... Any picks? Good luck with all of your projects and take care, don't work too hard - we need you for another half century or something like it...
    Without you and LP my life would not be half as beautiful and half as miserable... I take both these qualities and try to make it work in my life. You cannot feel happy if you don't taste misery.
    Lots of love,
    eva

  11. Thanks for the updates, really looking forward to the Dead by Sunrise release. Just saw you guys at Jones Beach - Amazing show!! On a personal note I must thank you for making my little girls night. Security let a couple of the younger kids up to the stage and you handed a little boy a pick, saw my daughter, then went back and did the same for her. She held that all night and put it in her jewelry box. I have always been a huge fan, but this seemingly small gesture made my daughter melt. Seeing the love of this band through her eyes was a moment I won't soon forget.

    Thank you
    Kim

  12. Hey Chester! Have a good days off!
    I'm exiting about the Dead by Sunrise album!
    And I'm also have a question, if PR 08 will finish on August, will you touring in South America?
    Please come to Brazil, has been a long time! We wanna see LP live here.
    Thanks, Daniele.

  19. Im going to PR in St. Louis and I would love nothing more than to spread the word of Ve'cel

  20. DBS: Awesome!
    Ve'cel: Sweet!
    Mankini: Oh good God... *insert :confused: and :eek: smileys from LPU here*

    Jen: They aren't asking if LinkinParkTV2008 is the official LP youtube, I went and looked it up, they're asking if it is what it says it is, if it's really "Mike and Chester". At first you think it's bs since we already know there's an official LP youtube, but on closer inspection it gets harder to think it's not them. They are listed as "Musician", have upcoming shows listed, have almost all LP's videos uploaded and then some, and their only two subscriptions are projektrevolution and warnerbrosrecords. Furthermore, in some of their video descriptions, they says thing like "from our album". It threw me for a loop that they uploaded Faint/Toxic, but the description says, "Faint belongs to us,linkin park. Toxic belongs to britney spears. This is a great mashup in our opinion." Which, a) sounds like something they might say, and b) reminds me an awful lot of Mike's inability to capitalize anything. I realize that it'd be pretty easy to fake all this, but why would they?

    Wow, long comment, sorry 'bout that.

  36. Thanks for the news. Can't wait for Dead by Sunrise. I've been to one of the LP shows recently, it was so good. I'm speechless.

    Hope the mankini is comfortable haha. Love what you're doing, please don't ever stop it :) !

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am so excited to hear the dead by sunrise record! as well as always looking foward to any new linkin park stuff that may come out.

    I just saw you guys @ PR in virginia, and it was an amazing show as always. Hungerstrike with Chris Cornell was awesome, it took me back to my childhood when i was actually a big fan of that song. it was a cool connection with my present favorite band to the bands i listened to when i was a little kid. i can't wait to see you guys again in about 2 weeks in Ohio (my moms mothers day present, she loves you guys too!)

    and lastly, i know you are VERY busy, but how bout some Ve'cel for ladies...or at least smaller sizes in the men's clothing. i really like the line, but all the sites i find seem to only have huge sizes. i know it would sell veryyyyyy well!

    keep up the good work and hope you have a nice break when PR is over!

  38. Hi!
    Chester How are you?
    I am happy that you are working on a new album, in addition you have new friends. I will go to stores to ask that ve'cel put on shelves in stores.
    I hope you caring much.

  39. I would absolutley LOVE to see Chester in his mankini.....Lol

  40. Did you enjoy Cheap Trick, Heart and Journey at Chastain? I took my wife and 12 year old son to see them, we were sitting off to your left a row or two down. I thought you looked familiar but my son confirmed it (I told him to just let you enjoy the show)--he would have rather been at one of LP's concerts. Journey was interesting with the new lead singer--if you close your eyes...otherwise cut the hair, stop jumping around so much (not since David Lee Roth) and definitely stop flipping the microphone in the air. Anyway good luck with the tour and next album. Always a pleasure to listen. Sincerely, Walter Orechwa

  41. hey it's great you can continue working on the dead by sunrise record :) I'm sooo looking forward to it :)

    a little sad that the lp record will take a while, but this makes it even more exiting... by the way: where are you touring in fall? only asia?

    i LOVE ve'cel, but there aren't any ve'cel shops in europe, it's a pity :(
    so hope we'll hear more from you soon :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. Haha, freakin' mankini. You're right though, nasty tan lines are discouraging for the ladies. Anyways, I'm excited for the DBS album but I'm pretty skeptical on your statement. After the let down from live recordings of Club Tattoos Anniversary and years of leading on, I'm not getting my hopes up yet. Like you guys said for MTM, I'll believe it when I can go to the store, buy it, and open it myself.

    Hope you are having an awesome tour.

  48. Hey Chester,
    tanks for your update.
    I'm really looking forward to the Dead by Sunrise release. Just saw you guys at Germany-Berlin - that was amazing show!!
    And for a few minutes saw i the video primier to LEAVE OUT ALL THE REST on MTV Germany (on the TV is bigger as on the PC ;)). I found the video ist wonderful and great - I love this.
    Please telling me - was is a "mankini"? (How tankini for girl's? - just for men`s?)

    I wish you have a nice break.

    Love, best wishes.

  54. Mankini? Hmmm not sure what to think!

    Hoping you guys will make it back to Oz, we need some excitment in the apparently small 'state' of Western Australia!

    The new Album is just amazing! Besides the talent that we all love, there is nothing better than songs that relate to 'real life'

    Chester I am so happy for you! You've shown everyone that dreams can come true, you are an inspiration :)

    Much love from Perth, Western Australia :)

  61. Hey Chester. I'm a big LP fan waiting for the tour to hit Portland, OR. Haven't seen you all since last time you were here, but I definitely keep up to date with your LP site and Google Alerts.

    Anyhow, I heard you are doing some solo work and have been through a lot of ups and downs. First, I can't wait to hear your Death by Sunrise CD. You have such a beautiful voice.

    Please know there are people out here like myself who have you in their thoughts. I know you've been through a lot and your emotions ring true in you music. Thank you for sharing that wonderful voice and the emotion as well. Stay strong!
