Before there was Linkin Park, there was Grey Daze, and Chester Bennington's former bandmates are breathing new life into his 20-year-old vocals.


Grey Daze drummer Sean Dowdell narrates a mini-documentary that spotlights the complicated components to a project of this magnitude.


He takes it all the way back to where it all began, seeking parental permission as they recruited a 15-year-old Chester to front their band. In July 2017, the band had plans to rehearse for a Grey Daze reunion. That reunion never took place, because Chester Bennington passed away on July 20th that year. 



With the help of Chester's industry friends, including Head & Munkey from Korn and Chris Traynor from Bush, Grey Daze are finishing what they started with Chester. These collective perfectionists refuse to accept mediocrity, and are determined to make Chester proud, even involving his children, because they had never had the opportunity to record with their father.

The hope is that this project will further the healing for Chester's family, friends and fans. We look forward to the release of this unique, special and emotional album.
