    Three Days Grace were a man down for a minute. The band has announced that Matt Walst, lead singer of My Darkest Days, will be joining them as the lead singer for their North American arena tour starting with the Moline, Illinois show on February 1 and will continue throughout the tour. Former lead singer Adam Gontier has left the group effective immediately due to a health issue.

    So they called in the brother of bassist Brad Walst, who stated, "We were surprised and distressed by Adam's sudden departure. We are however very excited for this upcoming tour, and to have my brother Matt stepping in as lead singer."

    That was quick, huh? We hope Gontier is okay, as well, and we wish Three Days Grace the best as they soldier on without him.
