Gray Daze, the band fronted by Chester Bennington before he formed Linkin Park, has shared a new single “started To Fly”.
The song is taken from the band’s upcoming album ‘The Phoenix’, released on June 17th. It follows the single ‘Saturation (Strange Love)’ last month.
Bennington left the band in 1998, but reunited with them and was in the process of re-recording music for a new album when he passed away in 2017.
““Start Flying” is a new rock track about finding yourself and your true potential. It is realizing that you can make the world yours. It’s a song about hope. How high can we go? ‘ said drummer and songwriter Sean Dowdell.
A video for the song directed by Heidi Gadd has been shared featuring Bennington and the band along with behind-the-scenes footage from ‘The Phoenix’ tapings. You can view it below.
‘The Phoenix’ is a ten-song anthology honoring the late singer, featuring contributions from Dave Navarro, Richard Patrick and Bennington’s daughters, Lily and Lila Bennington.
It’s the ‘Revision’ of 2020, an album of remade songs from their latter catalog, which builds on Bennington’s original songs. NME called it “a great modern rock record led by one of the best vocalists in the game” in a four-star review.
Earlier this month, the band shared the first episode of their documentary series Gray Daze: Creation of the Phoenixfollowed the band from the 90s to their new album.
It features footage of Bennington and his band mates playing together at the very beginning, before diving into the experience of making ‘The Phoenix’.
