On the transcript says this about Chester and Dead By Sunrise:

-He said the next Dead By Sunrise album will be released – never!

That was a direct quote from the site. Not sure which one posted the mistake. Cause in this topic it says that there WILL be another DBS album. Kinda confused.


I was in the chat. He said there will be another DBS album “Never!” indeed.


wow. So the album will be titled “Never”. I wonder when that will come out


He meant he will not make another album.


Hope you know I said that as quote, not as album title. He actually answered the question with “NEVER”.


Thanks for clarifying. I wonder why he said never. Is there a problem with the band?


Never?? What does he mean?? ._.


Probably no, but he has Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots, it’s enough for him


Chester would’ve sung an excellent national anthem at a Cardinals game, or any sporting event to be honest. And he definitely would’ve crushed it for sure. Don’t you agree?
