Before Chester Bennington sang, screamed, and serenaded audiences of millions throughout his storied career in Linkin Park and a host of other projects, the frontman cut his teeth from 1993 to 1998 in his first proper band: Grey Daze.
In 2017, Chester announced the band's reunion which would see the surviving members re-working and re-recording a collection of songs they had started two decades ago. The project was shelved in July 2017. But with the blessing of Chester's family and widow, Talinda, the band regrouped in 2018 and in the summer of 2020 they released “Amends”, the first installment of re-recorded versions paired with Chester’s original vocals. Their recently finished album “The Phoenix” represents an important, yet unheard chapter—the origin story of one of modern rock’s most recognizable voices—and also a full circle moment among friends.
