Three Days Grace

The members of Three Days Grace began bashing punk chords when they were in their teens, carving a derivative yet energeticsound that fueled their live performances. Three Days Grace were formed in Norwood, Ontario, Canada, in 1997 by AdamGontier (vocals, guitar), Brad Walst (bass), and Neil Sanderson (drums). The group was originally called Groundswell, a five-piece that lasted from 1992 until transforming to a trio five years later.

The members of Three Days Grace began bashing punk chords when they were in their teens, carving a derivative yet energeticsound that fueled their live performances. Three Days Grace were formed in Norwood, Ontario, Canada, in 1997 by AdamGontier (vocals, guitar), Brad Walst (bass), and Neil Sanderson (drums). The group was originally called Groundswell, a five-piece that lasted from 1992 until transforming to a trio five years later. Gontier and Walst were raised in Norwood,and many oftheir songs were inspired by living in a place with a population of around 1,500. The band members were still in high schoolwhen they had their first gig, and they performed anywhere that would accept them -- including opening for a movie.

Three Days Grace eventually relocated to Toronto and were introduced to producer Gavin Brown by their old manager.Thebandgave Brown aprivate set, and he selected what he felt were the most promising tracks. The group then producedademo for EMIMusic Publishing Canada.With Brown at the helm, Three Days Grace recorded "(I Hate) Everything About You."The tune got thema publishing deal with EMI, and soonthey were signed to Jive after being courted by thecompany'spresident. Brown and ThreeDays Grace were sent to a studio in Boston,Massachusetts, to start the group's debutalbum.The band completed its self-titledfull-length in Woodstock, New York, at an isolated locationfree from big-citydistractions.Heavily influenced by Kyuss and SunnyDay Real Estate, the dark, angst-ridden tales of small-town love andhateon ThreeDays Grace brought the group a Next Big Thingtag.

Three Days Grace was released on July 22, 2003, by which time "(I Hate) Everything About You" was already a hitonalternativeradio stationsin Canada. The band toured extensively behind the record for the next two years as bothasupporting act andheadliners, but after a while, lifeon the road left the band, especially Gontier, feeling isolated andalone.Consequently, this themeof disconnection -- coupled with therealization that one was, in fact, not alone -- wouldserve asthe basis for their follow-upalbum. Getting back to their roots by writing therecord in the Ontario countryside, One-X wasreleased in June 2006. The album,which hit number five on the Billboard Top 200, marked therecorded debut of theband'ssecond guitarist, Barry Stock. Three DaysGrace supported One-X throughout the summer on datesalongsideStaind,Hoobastank, and Nickelback, while "Animal I HaveBecome" became a number one modern rock hit. In 2009,thegroupreleased its third full-length album, Life Starts Now. Afterheading out on tour with bands like Nickelback andAvengedSevenfold, theband returned to the studio to record their fourthalbum, the more atmospheric, electronic-tingedTransit ofVenus. « hide
