Chester Bennington’s Son, Jaime Bennington, Directs 'Soul Song' Video for Grey Daze

The latest from the Linkin Park singer's original band

May 15, 2020

Back in the early '90s, before Linkin Park was a glimmer in Mike Shinoda or Chester Bennington's eyes, Chester fronted a band in Phoenix, AZ named Grey Daze which released two albums before calling it quits.

As previously reported, Grey Daze have given fans something new to chew on; the posthumous album Amends featuring remastered recordings of the iconic singer as well as contributions from his son Jaime Bennington and members of Korn, Bush, and P.O.D.

Following up the singles "What's In The Eye," "Sometimes," and "Sickness," is the track "Soul Song" which was given a video treatment by Chester's now 24-year-old son.

Jaime is quoted on the band's YouTube post for the video, saying: "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.”

“Having Jaime involved in the recording of ‘Soul Song’ meant so much to all of us,” explains Grey Daze co-founder and drummer Sean Dowdell. “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.”

Amends is available for pre-order now with tons of collectible options, exclusively via the band’s website, with a June 26th release date.
