Three Days Grace Biography
Hailing from Canada, Three Days Grace find a way to rock hard, without losing the emotional, real connection they have to their audience. With songs from One-X that unleash sharp, relentless harmonies, matched with razor edged lyrics, the band is poised to take over the music scene once again.
One-X was produced by Howard Benson, mixed by Chris Lord-Alge and mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in Los Angeles.
According to lead singer Adam Gontier, Animal I Have Become, the first single off One- X, is “my realization that change had to happen, I had to ask for help.” With stomping bass lines backing him up, Gontier pleads, "Somebody get me through this nightmare / I can't control myself." Adam’s lyrics are both surprisingly open and defiantly delivered in the line: "So what if you can see / the darkest side of me." Animal I Have Become will impact Modern, Alternative and mainstream Rock on April 10th.
Prior to recording One-X throughout the later part of 2005, the band toured for over 2 years to sold-out crowds in support of their debut platinum album, Three Days Grace, which produced 3 hit singles. “I Hate Everything About You” peaked at #2 on Modern & Active charts and stayed there for 47 weeks. “Just Like You” was # 1 on Billboard New Artist Chart for 3 weeks, and according to Mediabase, was the second most played Rock song of 2004. “Home” entered Top 5 on both Billboard Active and Modern Charts. All three singles received heavy play on Fuse, MTV 2, and Much Music, leading to the band’s nomination for Best New Artist in the 2004 Billboard Awards and the 2004 Juno Awards.
Three Days Grace is Adam Gontier (vocals/guitar), Brad Walst (bass), Barry Stock (guitar) and Neil Sanderson (drums).
