Hear Grey Daze’s New Song, Sometimes, Written By Chester Bennington
Grey Daze have just unveiled the third single from their upcoming album Amends.
“Chester was already a masterful lyricist at the age of 18, when he wrote this song – which was initially recorded when he was 21,” explains Grey Daze co-founder and drummer, Sean Dowdell. “I’ve said this in prior interviews, but this is one of those songs that when I hear it now, I recognise the pain Chester was living with even more acutely now that I’m an adult.

“As so many of Chester’s lyrics do, this message in this song, that bad things happen and things will get better, resonates in an entirely different way with the current crisis we are all living through, and brings a message of hope.”
Sometimes is taken from Grey Daze’s upcoming album Amends, which is due out on June 26 via Loma Vista Recordings. While the record was originally scheduled for release on April 10, it has understandably been pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic. Nevertheless, the band will be hosting a worldwide listening party on the day of Amends’ original planned release, meaning that you’ll get to hear the record in its entirety over two months before the rest of the world.
