Contents

Based in Toronto, the band's original line-up consisted of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst. In 2003, Barry Stock was recruited as the band's lead guitarist, making them a quartet. In 2013, Gontier left the band and was replaced by Walst's younger brother Matt Walst, who was previously the lead singer of My Darkest Days.

Currently signed to RCA Records, they have released seven studio albums: Three Days Grace in 2003, One-X in 2006, Life Starts Now in 2009, Transit of Venus in 2012, Human in 2015, Outsider in 2018 and Explosions in 2022.

History

Early years (1992–2002)

The band started out as a quintet named "Groundswell" in Norwood, Ontario, in 1992. [2] Groundswell released one full-length album, Wave of Popular Feeling in 1995, [3] containing singles "Eddie", "Poison Ivy" and "Stare". The band's line-up consisted of lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer Neil Sanderson, bassist Brad Walst, lead guitarist Phil Crowe, and rhythm guitarist Joe Grant. [4] Most of the members were attending high school when the band formed. [2] [5] By the end of 1997, the band had broken up.

In 1997, Gontier, Sanderson, and Walst regrouped as "Three Days Grace". [2] According to Gontier, the name refers to a sense of urgency, with the question being whether someone could change something in their life if they had only three days to make a change. [5] Once in Toronto, the band became acquainted with local producer Gavin Brown. They gave him several years' worth of material which they had created, and he "...picked out what he called 'the golden nuggets'", according to Gontier. [6] Brown and the band polished the songs and created a demo album, which they gave to EMI Music Publishing Canada. The record label wanted to hear more material, and with Brown producing, the band created the song, "I Hate Everything About You", which attracted the interest of several record labels. [6] Three Days Grace were soon signed to Jive Records after being sought out by the company's then-president Barry Weiss. [2] Additionally, the group signed with Zomba in 2002. [7]

Three Days Grace (2003–2005)

They moved to Long View Farm, a studio in North Brookfield, Massachusetts, to record their debut album. The group completed half of the album at Long View, while the rest was done at Bearsville Studios in Bearsville, New York. [6] The self-titled album was finished in Woodstock, New York and released on July 22, 2003. [2] To support the eponymous album, the band released their first single, "I Hate Everything About You" (the song whose demo had gotten the band a record deal) on April 28, 2003. [6] [8] The song received heavy airplay and rapidly became widely recognizable, [9] [10] [11] and was labelled as the band's "breakout hit". [12] The song peaked at No. 1 on the Canadian rock chart becoming their first number-one hit in the country. [11] Gavin Brown who produced the track, earned the group a Juno Award for Producer of the Year in 2004. [13] In 2003, the group was named "Favourite New Artist" at the CASBY Awards. [14]

In support of their major label debut, the group joined Trapt as an opening act on a US tour from July to September 2003. [15] In late 2003, Barry Stock joined the group after the band was auditioning for a second guitar player. Stock was introduced to the group by his manager in Toronto after they needed some help with their gear. [16] [5] The group joined Nickelback on The Long Road Tour between October and November 2003. [17] The group embarked on a headlining tour called the Three Days Grace World Tour throughout 2004. [18] They also joined Evanescence on a North American Tour in July 2004, as well as Hoobastank on the Let it Out Tour in November. [19] [20] The album peaked at No. 9 on the Canadian Albums Chart [21] and No. 69 on the Billboard 200, [22] and was certified platinum in Canada by the CRIA [23] and 2× Platinum in the US by the RIAA. [24] The album's second single "Just Like You" was released on March 29, 2004. [25] The song became the first of many of the band's songs to top the US Billboard Alternative Airplay and Mainstream Rock charts. [26] "Home" was released on October 4, 2004, as the third single from the album. [27] The fourth and final single "Wake Up" was released exclusively in Canada on January 10, 2005. [28]

Three Days Grace was met with mixed-to-favourable reviews. Dave Doray of IGN said of the album, "Almost every single song from the Three Days Grace track list is heavy and catchy, with chewy chunks of assurance and fury thrown in for added measure." [29] AllMusic reviewer Heather Phares criticized the album for its simplicity, but praised the groups "tight songwriting" and "unexpectedly pretty choruses" that make them standout among their peers. [30] However, Spin gave a negative review calling it, "generic Canadian gripe rock." [31]

The band performed at the 2004 MuchMusic Video Awards. [32] At the event, "I Hate Everything About You" was nominated for Best Rock Video, as well as the band themselves for Favourite Canadian Group. [33] They were nominated for New Group of the Year at the 2004 Juno Awards. [34] The group was also nominated for Modern Rock Artist of the Year at the 2004 Billboard Music Awards. [35] The band appeared as themselves in the 2004 film Raise Your Voice . [36]

One-X (2006–2008)

Around this time, Gontier developed an addiction to the prescription drug OxyContin. After finishing the tour for their first album, the band knew they could not continue with the condition he was in, so in 2005, with the support of his family, friends, and band members, Gontier checked himself into the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto. [37] While in treatment, Gontier began writing lyrics for songs regarding how he felt and what he was going through in rehabilitation. [7]

Gontier successfully completed treatment at CAMH. [37] The band found a place suitable for further songwriting in Northern Ontario, in a cottage where they experimented on, tested, and practiced new songs. [38] After three months at the cottage, they had about finished what would be their second album. Gontier contributed lyrics about his experiences in rehab; the first single from One-X , titled "Animal I Have Become", features lyrics Gontier had written while getting sober. [39] In a 2006 interview, Gontier said that the album's material was more personal to him than the band's previous work because the inspiration had come out of his experiences with despondence, drug abuse, and rehab, which had constituted the past two years of his life. [38]

One-X was released on June 13, 2006, and was produced by Howard Benson. [40] This also marked Stock's first effort with the band. [2] The album peaked at No. 2 on the Canadian Albums Chart [21] and at No. 5 on the Billboard 200, [2] selling 78,000 copies in the US in its first week of release. [41] Instead of participating in Narcotics Anonymous, Gontier launched the "Three Days to Change" tour doing free concerts at treatment centres, shelters, group homes and detention centres across North America. [42] [43] In November 2006, Gontier performed with the band at a special show at the CAMH in Toronto, where he had gone for his own rehab. Following the performance, Gontier fielded questions from the audience. CAMH footage, interviews and live performances were filmed as part of the "Behind the Pain" documentary. [43]

"Animal I Have Become" was released as the lead single from One-X on April 10, 2006, [44] and became one of Three Days Grace's most successful singles, becoming 2006's most played rock song in Canada. [45] The song won Rock Single of the Year at the 2006 Billboard Music Awards. [46] "Pain" was released as the album's second single on September 19, [47] and topped the Canada Rock Chart becoming the group's second number-one on the chart. [48] It also topped the Billboard Alternative Airplay and Mainstream Rock charts. [49] [50] "Never Too Late was released as the third single on May 7, 2007. [51] It was nominated for Best Rock Video at the 2007 MuchMusic Video Awards. [52] "Riot" was released as the fourth and final single on November 6, 2007, [53] and reached the top 20 on the Mainstream Rock chart. [50] The album helped Three Days Grace become the No. 1 rock artist by airplay in the US and Canada in 2007, with Billboard ranking them as Rock Artist of the Year. [54] In 2007, One-X was nominated for Album of the Year at the Juno Awards. [55] The album was certified triple platinum in both Canada and the US. [23] [24] Three Days Grace toured the US and Canada throughout the second half of 2006 and all of 2007 in support of One-X with Staind. [56] [57] The band also supported Nickelback on their All the Right Reasons Tour from February to March 2007. [58] In early 2008, they toured across the US alongside Seether and Breaking Benjamin. [10] A recording of a concert from the tour, Live at the Palace 2008 , was released on August 19, 2008. [59]

Life Starts Now (2009–2011)

Writing for the third album began on the road in 2007. [60] Pre-production for the album began in January 2009 [61] and recording for their third album started in March at The Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, and in Los Angeles, [62] again with producer Howard Benson who had worked with them on their previous releases. [54] [63] The album, entitled Life Starts Now , was released on September 22, 2009. [64] Critics as well as band members have noted the album's departure from the angry tone of the band's previous releases into a lyrical style that is perceived as more optimistic. [65] [66] Gontier stated that the album had a little bit more hope than their previous records. [66] This album reflects the maturity of the band members as they overcome problems such as sickness and death within their families; in a published statement, they were quoted as saying: "We had to be inspired by it, but the outcome is this: It's a new beginning. It's life starting over." [67] According to Stock, the album's theme centres around "a new sense of freshness" and the idea that "you don't have to be stuck in whatever it is you're dealing with. Whether it's good or bad, it's your choice to make a change". [63]

Life Starts Now debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, the band's highest chart position to date, and sold 79,000 copies in its first week. [68] The album was met with mostly positive reviews. The Toronto Star gave the album a negative review calling the album "shallow" and criticized it for sounding the same as their previous records. [69] According to AllMusic, Life Starts Now "...continues the theme of One-X, Gontier's personal demons, but with a 'hint of sunlight'." [65] He complimented the album, however, saying it served "a competent flurry of fist-bump anthems and world-weary, mid-tempo rockers". [65] The album was nominated for Rock Album of the Year at the 2010 Juno Awards, [70] but lost to Billy Talent III . [71]

The first single from the album, "Break", was released on September 1, 2009. [54] The song topped the US Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart for twelve weeks. [72] It was nominated for Best Post Production Video and Best Rock Video of the Year at the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards.

[78] They were joined by Breaking Benjamin and Flyleaf during the U.S. shows. [79]

On October 7, 2011, the RCA Music Group announced it was disbanding Jive Records along with Arista and J Records, and moving all the artists signed to the three labels to its RCA Records brand, which included Three Days Grace. [84] [85]

On June 5, 2012, the same day as Venus' visible transit across the sun, the band announced that their fourth studio album would be called Transit of Venus and released on October 2, 2012. [86] They created an early promotional video on their website featuring clips of them in the studio as well as footage of the physical transit of Venus. [87] Due to the rarity of this occurrence, they created the slogan, "Some things will never happen again in your lifetime", reflecting both this uncommon occurrence as well as the mood that the lyrics and music would most likely take on. [88] The album was produced by Don Gilmore and recorded at Revolution Studios in Toronto. [89] The band took a different approach on this album heading into the studio. [90] They spent three and a half months working and writing songs, where in the past, the songs were already written and they only had to spend a month in the studio recording. [90] Sanderson stated they "went for a tighter and more articulated sound on this record," experimenting with new instruments. [89]

Transit of Venus peaked at No. 4 on the Canadian Albums Chart and was certified gold in Canada. [91] [23] The album also peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.

[89] The song peaked at number one on the US Mainstream Rock chart for thirteen weeks. [50] "The High Road" was released on January 22, 2013, as the second single from album. [94] "Misery Loves My Company" was released as the third and final single on May 14, 2013. Both singles also topped the US Mainstream Rock chart. [50] The album was nominated for Rock Album of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2014. [95]

On January 9, 2013, the band announced that Gontier had left the band. They described Gontier's departure as being abrupt and unexplained. [96] The departure came just weeks before a co-headlining tour with Shinedown. [97] Gontier explained that he was simply ready to start a new chapter in his life, stating, "After twenty years of being part of an ever evolving band, I have been inspired by life, to move on and to continue to evolve on my own terms." [96] He later added that his decision for leaving the group was of creative differences. [98] Following his departure from the band, Gontier launched his Solo Live Tour in 2013. [99] After staying out of the spotlight in 2014, Gontier re-emerged in 2015 with rock supergroup Saint Asonia. [100] Brad Walst's brother, Matt (of My Darkest Days), became the band's new lead singer and they commenced their 2013 tour with Shinedown and P.O.D. [101] [102] Dani Rosenoer, the band's touring keyboardist and backing vocalist since 2012, also joined the band for the tour. [103]

The group began recording their fifth studio album in late 2013 in Noble Street Studios, Toronto. [104] The group also confirmed in March 2014, that Walst would officially be taking over as the band's new frontman. [105] They worked with producer Gavin Brown on this album. Sanderson described the album as more raw and aggressive than their previous records. [106] The group embarked on a US tour from April to July 2014.

[108] Walst also added that the group went back to their hard rock roots for this album. [108] In a separate interview with Loudwire, Brad credited Brown for "getting them in the right mindset." [109]

A new track titled "Painkiller" was released on April 1, 2014, as the lead single from the album. [110] It was the first song they wrote with Matt.

Outsider (2017–2020)

Once the tour for their 2015 album Human concluded, the band decided to take time off to work on the next album "in as much isolation as possible," according to drummer Neil Sanderson. [126] They spent one year writing the material at rural properties owned by Sanderson and Brad Walst. [127] Matt Walst was much more involved in the songwriting, messages, and concepts on this album compared to their previous one. [126] The band began recording their sixth studio album in July 2017. [128] The album was produced by two of the band's prior producers, Gavin Brown and Howard Benson but also by members of the band themselves.

Musical styles and influences

Their music has been described as post-grunge, [162] [163] [164] hard rock, [165] [166] [167] alternative rock, [162] [168] alternative metal, [169] [170] and nu metal. [171] [172] The group has stated that their early influences were from the bands, The Tragically Hip and Our Lady Peace as well as from the Seattle rock scene, especially the group Sunny Day Real Estate. [173]

Their self-titled album mostly features the sounds of alternative metal [30] and nu metal, [29] with heavy influences from Kyuss and Sunny Day Real Estate. [2] The album drew comparison with the likes of Linkin Park, Chevelle, Depswa and Shinedown for their alternative metal and hard rock sound. [30] [174] On their second album, One-X , the band continued with their alternative metal sound and features songs more personal to Gontier. [169] [38] Music critics praised the album's lyrics for its "simple and direct approach" that adds a certain charm, despite its predictability. [169] [45] However, on their third album, Life Starts Now , the group departs from the angry tone of the band's previous releases into a lyrical style with more optimism while maintaining their hard rock sound. [65] Critics compared the album's sound to bands such as Breaking Benjamin, Collective Soul, and Godsmack. [65] Their fourth album, Transit of Venus , included a few electronic influences. [175] These influences are evident on tracks such as "Chalk Outline" and "The High Road", adding a layer of thickness to the guitar-heavy work. [176] On their fifth album, Human , the group shifted away from using electronic elements and went back to their post-grunge and alternative metal sound. [177] [178] However, their sixth album, Outsider , included electronic aspects influenced by Bring Me the Horizon's 2015 album, That's the Spirit . [179] On their seventh album, Explosions , they continued with their gritty and hard rock sound. [180] Critics compared the sound to their early records such as One-X for its raw angst while also stating the group heads for a mature and exploratory sound on the album. [181]
