Listen to a new song from Chester Bennington’s pre-Linkin Park days with Grey Daze, called “Sickness”

Before joining Linkin Park, the late Chester Bennington was in a band called Grey Daze, which has been sitting on some unreleased music for years. Now, Grey Daze will unleash that material in a new album, “Amends,” out on April 10.

The new album includes re-recorded tracks from the band’s time together with Bennington’s original vocals remastered.

“Amends” will feature 11 songs, bringing together the previously released single “What’s in the Eye” and a just-released track called “Sickness,” along with nine other tracks. Along with the album announcement, the band released the song “Sickness” and its music video, which is streaming now on YouTube. The video brings together live footage of Grey Daze along with a dramatic story about Bennington’s teenage years. Listen to the song and watch the music video below.

“This is loosely based on a true story from when Chester was 15 years old,” Grey Daze drummer Sean Dowdell said in a statement. “He was being bullied at school and one day suffered a real beating. That was the day I assumed a role as protector and almost older brother figure to Chester that has lasted since, even after his passing.”

Grey Daze’s “Amends” Track List:

“What’s in the Eye”
“The Syndrome”
“In Time”
“Just Like Heroine”
“Soul Song”
“Morei Sky”
“She Shines”
“Shouting Out”
