Chester Bennington’s GREY DAZE Release New Single ‘What’s In The Eye’
The 90s era band Grey Daze have shared the first single from their as-of-yet untitled and unheard album due this Spring.
Chester Bennington‘s pre-Linkin Park band Grey Daze have confirmed details of their as-of-yet untitled album, set to be released this Spring via Loma Vista Recordings. Giving fans a first taste of their re-imagined and re-recorded collection of songs from the early days, the band has shared the emotionally-charged single What’s In The Eye.
Prior to his untimely passing, Chester personally announced a 2017 Grey Daze reunion on social media. His bandmates, friends, family, and various collaborators have stepped up to finish what the late singer started.
Speaking of the project in an open letter posted to their social media channels in December, the band explained:
Over the years we’d become more knowledgeable, more experienced, and had more resources, so we decided to pick a selection of songs from our previously released albums and re-record them the way they deserved to have been treated back in the ‘90s when we initially wrote and released them. By February 2017 we started recording and in June, Chester and Sean announced the reunion, with a live performance planned for that Fall. Unfortunately, as we all know, that never happened.
Originally recorded in 1993 and 1996, What’s In The Eye was re-written and modernized by Grey Daze under the guidance of producers Chris Traynor (Bush, Helmet, Orange 9MM), Kyle Hoffman, and Jay Baumgardner. Featuring Chester’s original vocals, the track packs a punch with a remarkable intensity, bringing the tangible emotion of his vocal delivery to the forefront whilst revitalising the raw essence of the 90s rock music. Written lyrically in different phases by both Sean Dowdell and Chester collaboratively, the song focuses on a friend’s premature death in a car accident and trying to understand the loss.
