Chester Bennington’s pre-Linkin Park band has released a new track featuring his vocals

Before Chester Bennington moved to LA and fell in with the guys who would become Linkin Park, he was in an Arizona band called Grey Daze, a semi-grunge outfit with him on lead vocals. They released two albums, Wake Me Up and No Sun Today.

That band was emerged from stasis with a song entitled “What’s In the Eye,” which was originally recorded in 1993 and again in 1996. The vocals on those tracks belong to Chester. He was 17 years old at the time.

The song has been re-written and modernized by Grey Daze with help form producer Chris Traynor, a guy who has worked with Bush.

An official single from a new 2020 Grey Daze album called “Sickness” will be released February 5. Watch this space.
