Grey Daze – the Chester Bennington pre-Linkin Park band – have released their new single “Sometimes,” which appears on the act’s upcoming album “Amends” (recently postponed to June 26th via Loma Vista Recordings).
A press release notes:
“Sometimes, things just seem to fall apart, when you least expect them to,” offers Bennington in the lyrically profound three-and-a-half minute song. The track, which was written in 1994 but only recently re-recorded for Amends, goes on to say, “maybe things will look better, maybe things will look brighter.”
“Chester was already a masterful lyricist at the age of 18, when he wrote this song (which was initially recorded when he was 21),” explains Sean Dowdell, Grey Daze co-founder and drummer. “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.”
