Grey Daze, is the band fronted by Chester Bennington before he went on to form Linkin Park have released the fourth single from their upcoming album ‘ Amends’ titled ‘ Soul Song’. Bennington left this band in 1998, but had reunited with them and was in the middle of re-recording music for a new album when he died in 2017. Before Chester Bennington was fronting Linkin Park he was singing for a band called Grey Daze. The group was planning a reunion before Chester’s after his tragic death in 2017, and now his former bandmates are paying tribute by releasing a new album. Amends, that feature re-recording version of their 90s songs and Chester’s remastered Vocals.
As the album release on 26 June date comes closer, Gery Daze shares a heart touching video for ‘ Soul Song’ which was directed by and stars Chester’s son Jaime Bennington. This music video is about the spiritual connection to the other side of and my literal experience with the elusive and, at times, incomprehensible presence of my father after death, said by Jamie about the video.’ Soul Song’ is about many ways in which we come to enlightenment, into knowledge, and the ways we fall away from it. This is his personal experience with that.
The clip shows the connection of Jamie with his father’s spirit in speaking nature settings, while archival footage of Chester performing with Grey Daze fades in and out of focus. The band co-founder and drummer Sean Dowell describes working with Jamie as one of those full-circle moments where we remembered meeting Chester at an even younger age than Jamie. He’s a burgeoning filmmaker so when he offered to do this video, well we couldn’t think of a better way to present this song.
Grey Daze has also shared” Sickness” and” What’s in The Eye” off the upcoming album. Watch the Soul Song video it must get inspired you all.
