GRAY DAZE, the first band of the late LINKIN PARK front man Chester Bennington, looks back on their origins in an eight-minute short documentary.

GRAY DAZE, the first band of the LINKIN PARK singer Chester Bennington, who died in 2017, is completed by drummer Sean Dowdell, bassist Mace Beyers and guitarist Cristin Davis. In an eight-minute short documentary published today, the group now looks back at its origins rooted in Phoenix and Bennington's vision for GRAY DAZE. You can watch the video below. The band recently released 'What’s In The Eye', the first song of the still nameless GRAY DAZE album, which is due to be released in spring 2020 via Loma Vista Recordings. The song was originally recorded in 1993 and 1996. However, together with producers Chris Traynor (BUSH, HELMET, ORANGE 9MM), Kyle Hoffman and Jay Baumgardner, GRAY DAZE revised and modernized the track. The band used Chester Bennington's original vocal recordings, which he recorded at the age of only 17, and Chester Bennington's widow Talinda confirmed the release of a new GRAY DAZE album. In honor of the LINKIN PARK singer who died in 2017, his former bandmates have re-recorded old GRAY DAZE song material with the support of family and friends. Bennington sang the vocal recordings while he was still alive.
