"Let Down" is a song by American rock band Dead by Sunrise, which consists of Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington, as well as the band members of Julien-K. It is the second single and the fifth track from their debut studio album, Out of Ashes. It was released through iTunes on November 24, 2009.


In an article from Sputnik Music, the second single from Out of Ashes was described as "despite the synth atmosphere that turned out to be strange, it has a chorus that becomes difficult to get out of your head, as the harmonies to the song became impressively successful."[1] In another article, only recently from Ultimate Guitar Archive, it has been carefully explained as "quite an electronic and bass guitar type of song, even at the beginning of 'Let Down', and is another mellow song that makes Chester Bennington show off his soft vocals again, as the chorus becomes very good."[2]

Music video[edit]

A music video was filmed for "Let Down", along with a video for "Crawl Back In". Both videos were directed by P. R. Brown.[3] The video was premiered on December 4, 2009 via YouTube.
