Julien-K began as a side project for electronic music created by Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck from Orgy, with the later addition of Brandon Belsky and Elias Andra.

Their debut album, Death to Analog, which was mixed by Tim Palmer, was released on March 10, 2009. Initially, the album was to be released on February 17, 2009; respectively, the date of the United States "death to analog" television.

Julien-K's webpage began in the summer of 2003 with the demo versions of songs "Look at You", "Kick the Bass", "Someday Soon", "Everyone Knows", and "Technical Difficulties". Up until 2007, the webpage said "Coming Soon." Since the official webpage launch, the site now has a wealth of information, links, photos, and other media.

In 2007 Julien-K was on the mainstage for Projekt Revolution tour and one of the opening bands for the North American tour of Evanescence: "The Open Door". In 2008, they opened for Mindless Self Indulgence on the latter band's 2008 tour. In 2009 the band were contracted to write and record the musical score for the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game.

Julien-K also does work for Sonic the Hedgehog games. Some notables included Sonic Heroes (This Machine) and Shadow the Hedgehog (Waking Up).

Collaborations with Chester Bennington

Julien-K teamed up with Chester Bennington from Linkin Park to perform the song "Let Down" for the ReAct Now: Music & Relief televised concert.

The Julien-K production team of Amir Derakh, Ryan Shuck, Brandon Belsky, and Anthony 'Fu' Valcic also worked with Chester Bennington to perform an exclusive version of the song "Morning After" for the Underworld: Evolution soundtrack and for the remix album of the band Mindless Self Indulgence's "What Do They Know?". The track was released as a bonus remix on Another Mindless Rip Off.

Julien-K has also teamed up on Chester Bennington's solo project, the band called Dead by Sunrise, formerly known as Snow White Tan. Dead by Sunrise has since released their debut album Out of Ashes on October 13th, 2009.

"Both bands are the same. The one where Chester sings and writes is Dead by Sunrise, but when I sing, and Amir and I are the primary writers, it becomes Julien-K and it's more electro and much darker... Julien-K and Dead by Sunrise are basically a creative collective, we're sort of a Warhol-style factory in that sense," explains Ryan Shuck. "Dead by Sunrise is Chester's Julien-K if that makes any sense."

During Projekt Revolution 2007, Bennington replaced lead singer Ryan Shuck for the Chicago date of the tour while Shuck attended his brother's wedding.


Aside from the band, Amir Derakh and Brandon Belsky DJ under the moniker of JK DJS. They did their first DJ performance together December 31, 2007 at a hotel resort in Del Marmarker (San Diegomarker), Californiamarker. Since then they have played numerous shows and have released some of their DJ sets as free downloads from their myspace.
