Grey Daze Release Mini-Documentary About Chester Bennington’s Legacy And Their New Album
As the release of their new album approaches, Grey Daze — the first band of late Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington — have been doing a lot of looking inward and remembering their time with the singer. Now, the band have announced they’re releasing a documentary about Chester’s legacy and their upcoming new album — and you can watch the first episode below.
The series, the first part of which premiered at Loudwire, features Bennington’s family, friends, and Grey Daze bandmates speaking about his early days and his time in the band. And while the documentary features plenty of celebration surrounding Chester’s music and talent, it’s also brutally honest about who he was.
Watch the mini-doc below:
Chester’s widow Talinda announced Grey Daze’s intention to re-record new music with Chester in December. “For us, releasing a new Grey Daze album will shine a light on where my husband started,” she said via Instagram, “and hopefully give his fans a better understanding of his art and a more full picture of his journey through this incredible music.”
“There is a depth in the lyrics on this record,” said drummer Sean Dowdell in an exclusive interview with Kerrang! “Chester sings every word like he believes every single emotion attached. It’s bittersweet for me. There’s that big, obvious looming thing that he’s not here to share this with me. But I’m very proud in how we curated this music. We took almost three years to make this record after he passed. I think he’d be quite proud of what we did.”
Grey Daze have released the first track from their as-yet-untitled new album, What’s In The Eye, earlier this month. Though the music on the track is re-recorded, the vocals are those from Chester’s original vocals. Watch it below:
