Way back in February, it was announced that Grey Daze, the original band of late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington, would be re-recording some of their classic tracks with Chester's son Jaime. Now, it looks like the band have gone one step further -- Talinda, Chester's widow, has revealed that Chester had been re-recording a new album with Grey Daze, and it will now see the light of day.
According to an Instagram post by Talinda, Chester and Grey Daze began re-recording some of the band's songs for a new release, and were practicing for a 20th anniversary concert. Now, with the help of Talinda and her 320 Foundation -- a foundation focused on changing our cultural understanding of mental health issues and providing help to those dealing with them -- Chester's last project will come out next year via Loma Vista Recordings.
"He was so enthusiastic about doing this, and he was eager to play rock music with messages that he knew would be meaningful to his fans," writes Talinda. "It meant a lot for him to be working with his Grey Daze bandmates, Sean Dowdell (with whom he had a very special friendship, and was a business partner in Club Tattoo), along with Mace Beyers, and Cristin Davis. He'd known them more than half his life."
Then, two swipes in, Talinda drops the bombshell: "For us, releasing a new Grey Daze album will shine a light on where my husband started and hopefully give his fans a better understanding of his art and a more full picture of his journey through this incredible music."
