Grey Daze, the Phoenix-based rock band that birthed one of the most recognizable voices in modern rock music, Chester Bennington, have released their long-awaited record, “Amends“, and the single containing that one lyric that gave the album title, “Morei Sky.”

“We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you! Such overwhelming support has been given to us throughout our journey in making this record. We have certainly felt the love from you all.” – Grey Daze
“Morei Sky” is the sixth single to be released from the new album, ‘Amends’ (out now via Loma Vista Recordings). Grey Daze has previously released: “B12” – an electrifying rock anthem Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch and James “Munky” Shaffer’s guitar riffs can be heard & seen, “Soul Song” with backing vocals and a video directed by Chester’s eldest son – Jaime Bennington, “Sometimes” (a music video for the track became all the more relevant with stay-at-home orders, with the song inspiring hope amidst feelings of isolation and sadness), alongside “Sickness” and “What’s In The Eye”. An eight-part video series titled “Making Amends” takes fans behind-the-scenes into the making of the 11-song album.
‘Amends‘ is the origin story of one of modern rock’s most recognizable voices and also a full circle moment among friends. The album is the fulfillment of a planned Grey Daze reunion that Chester had announced prior to his untimely passing. The remaining band members – Sean Dowdell (drums), Mace Beyers (bass) and Cristin Davis (guitar) – along with Talinda Bennington (Chester’s widow) and his parents, made it their mission to see the project through with assistance from Tom Whalley, the founder of Loma Vista Recordings and former Warner Bros. Records Chairman during Linkin Park’s tenure at the label. Dowdell, Beyers and Davis selected the tracks from the band’s mid-90s, but largely unknown, catalog and re-recorded the music in 2019 to accompany Chester’s re-mastered vocals. Produced by Jay Baumgardner, several musicians leant their time and talent to the album, including Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch and James “Munky” Shaffer, Page Hamilton (Helmet), Chris Traynor (Bush, Helmet, Orange 9MM), LP (Laura Pergolizzi), Jaime Bennington, Jasen Rauch (Breaking Benjamin), Marcos Curiel (P.O.D.) and Ryan Shuck (Orgy).
‘Amends‘ is available in a variety of collectible formats with several iterations available exclusively via the band’s website (https://found.ee/GD_
