Had a really amazing day contributing to the new @greydazeofficial album featuring my old pal #chesterbennington on vocals that have yet to be heard publicly. Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen, it was just like spending a few hours with family and we got to share some stories and smiles about our experiences with Chester. Haunting for sure... but a celebration all the same! Plus, I got to hang out with my pal @brianvirtuemusic who engineered @janesaddiction ‘s Strays.
“All of the vocals are Chester except where I sing back ups, and Richard Patrick sings with him on 1 song," Dowdell tells Loudwire. "But all lead vocals are Chester.”
Amends broke into the Top 10 of the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart and peaked at No. 75 on the Billboard 200. The album did even better in the U.K., hitting No. 1 on the U.K. Rock & Metal Albums Chart while peaking at No. 62 on the main Albums chart.
