This one cost a lot of tears. One of the most relatable songs I’ve ever felt in my bones. I had the privilege of meeting Chester in 2017 in Madrid with 5FDP @downloadfestmad He was an extremely humble and kind man from our interaction. For the sake of professionalism I never told him how his honesty in his art inspired me. How his courage to be who he was gave us all a little more strength. He died some weeks later & as I have seen countless times in recovery, we never know what someone is truly going through often until it’s too late. We are in a horrific times right now as it pertains to mental health. Suicides are on the rise as people are struggling to find routine, comfort and connection. But you’re not alone. The stuff will comeback, Businesses can be rebuilt, new relationships blossom, money comes and goes but life is a limited time offer. I hope that you stick around for it. Love you guys & thank YOU for carrying me through the dark. #Crawling #badwolves #linkinbio #linkinpark #chester #suicideprevention #mentalhealth

Chester Bennington’s Son Jaime Directs Grey Daze’s “Soul Song” Video

Chester Bennington’s early band Grey Daze have shared a new video for “Soul Song.” The clip was directed by the late Linkin Park frontman’s son Jamie, who also guested on the track. “Soul Song” will appear on the band’s upcoming album “Amends,” which is set to be released on June 26.

Jaime commented:

“This music video is about my spiritual connection to the other side and my literal experiences with the elusive and, at times, incomprehensible presence of my father after death. ‘Soul Song‘ is about the many ways in which we come to enlightenment, into knowledge, and the many ways we fall away from it. This is my personal experience with that.”

Grey Daze drummer Sean Dowdell added:

“Having Jaime involved in the recording of ‘Soul Song‘ meant so much to all of us. It was one of those full circle moments where we remembered meeting Chester at an even younger age than Jaime, and to now be recording with his son… it was a highlight of recording ‘Amends‘. Jamie is a burgeoning filmmaker so when he offered to do this video, well, we couldn’t think of a better way to present this song.”

Linkin Park Members Writing New Music

Linkin Park’s future has been uncertain since the tragic death of Chester Bennington, but it appears there is some new activity going on within the group. During an appearance on the “Dan Really Likes Wine” podcast, bassist Dave “Phoenix” Farrell revealed that the surviving members of the band have been writing new music.

Farrell said the following:

“At this point right now, I think globally we’re all doing a version of the same thing, you know, trying to stay home and trying to stay as healthy as possible.”

“For us, with the band, we’ve been kinda writing and doing that whole bit before this all started, so casually at this point we’re doing Zoom meetings to eat lunch together and say, ‘Hi.’ But we’re not able to get together and write or do that whole bit. So working at home a little bit, working up ideas.”

He went on to say that he has also been playing drums as of late:

“I’ve been playing a lot of drums, just to do something new – I’ve been doing that for the last year, year and a half, and purposely making as much noise as possible to create my own space in the house.”

Chester Bennington’s Pre-Linkin Park Band Grey Daze Share Re-Recorded Version Of “Sometimes”

Chester Bennington’s early band Grey Daze were previously working on an album of re-recorded tracks before the Linkin Park frontman’s tragic death and the effort, which is titled “Amends,” is now set to be released on June 26. The record’s third single, “Sometimes,” is now available and can be found below. Drummer Sean Dowdell commented:

“Chester was already a masterful lyricist at the age of 18, when he wrote this song (which was initially recorded when he was 21). I’ve said this in prior interviews but this is one of those songs that when I hear it now, I recognize the pain Chester was living with even more acutely now that I’m an adult. As so many of Chester’s lyrics do, this message in this song, that bad things happen and that things will get better, resonates in an entirely different way with the current crisis we are all living through, and brings a message of hope.”
