American Idol finalist Chris Daughtry is back in Los Angeles finishing his upcoming album, sources tell AIW. A decision on the first single release is yet to be made, but when it is, it'll be released to radio soon after.

Chris Daughtry is Back
According to Chris's MySpace page, his band (named simply Daughtry -- how Bon Jovi-esque) has been assembled... but he can't reveal who made the cut just yet.

We've heard some or all of the members of his pre-American Idol ensemble, Absent Element, were in the running, but nothing has been confirmed.

The band has completed photo shoots for the forthcoming album and website, and are currently rehearsing.

Daughtry (the singer) will step back into the limelight when he sings the the National Anthem on Monday, October 16, prior to the Arizona Cardinals game in Phoenix.

Daughtry (the band) is scheduled to perform on Good Morning America's fall concert series November 21.

Also, here's a tidbit from Chris' MySpace page:

"Daughtry will be performing a 25-30 minute set this Friday night @ 8pm at The Viper Room here in L.A. We're playing ALL new material from the upcoming album!! Hope to see ya'll there."

Road trip, anyone?
