Hear Chester Bennington Sing with Pre-Linkin Park Band Grey Daze
His vocals for "What's in the Eye" were recorded at 17
Published Jan 16, 2020Grey Daze, the pre-Linkin Park band of late vocalist Chester Bennington, revealed last December that they would be releasing an album of reworked and rerecorded material. Now, a first single from the effort has arrived.
Originally recorded in 1993 and 1996, "What's in the Eye" features Bennington's original vocals, recorded when he was just 17. Co-written by Bennington and drummer Sean Dowdell, the song deals with processing loss following the death of a friend in a car accident.
Grey Daze's yet-to-be-titled full-length is set to arrive this Spring through Loma Vista Recordings.
"As a teenager, when these recordings were done, he had this incredible raw and somewhat undeveloped voice that had an incredible tone. He had this ability to sing great rock melodies punctuated by that unmistakable guttural scream. Chester's voice had a personality that made you a believer," Loma Vista founder and president Tom Whalley said in a statement. "Listening to the new versions of these tracks, I think it represents everything that the band members and the family told me that Chester wanted to achieve with re-recording this body of work."
