Three Days Grace Singer Leaves

2013-01-09 by PostMesmeric | 84 Comments
Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier has officially resigned from the band and been replaced by My Darkest Days singer Matt Walst, brother of Three Days Grace bassist Brad Walst. Gontier cited his reason for leaving as a health issue, though specific medical details have yet to surface. This news appears weeks before their co-headlining tour with Shinedown which begins in Moline, Illinois on February 1. Walst will perform as frontman of Three Days Grace for the tour.

The news also follows the departure of My Darkest Days’ guitarist Sal Costa, leaving the band’s immediate future in question.

Three Days Grace has posted Walst renditions of Three Days Grace songs on the band’s Soundcloud, threedaysgraceofficial, including the track “Chalk Outline” and the band’s most recent single from their Transit of Venus album, “The High Road.”

Idk, I kind of liked him. He sounds exactly the same, even less exciting on the later releases. Regardless, the last two albums they put out sucked so I don't really care what they do now

Reminds me of the singer of Anberlin more so than the old singer, this is kind of promising, even though it is Three Days Grace and I wouldn't listen to them on my own time either way.

I imagined that was what you meant but yeah I get you now.

Anyway I just heard that re-recorded 'Riot' song

That was painful. That original song was decent

I actually kind've like his voice a lot. He should join a different band once his medical problems get fixed.

Maybe he left cause he realized the band was holding back musically and had no good ideas. He was great when I saw him live and if you check out his cover of Rooster live (it should be on Youtube), he's talented enough to do his own work.

It was interesting news, but I kinda stopped caring for the band about 7 years ago. I think they released a song in 2009 that was kinda cool, but it got old after a few listens.

Their new singer will be fine for the tour. Curious as to who they get to replace the vocalist though. Also, best of luck to him (with his health problems).

Riot sucked before and it sucks even more now. New guy is trying too hard. Band was alright before. Everything I heard off of ToV though was bad, so probably won't even notice the new singer.

Three Days Grace's first two albums were great and the vocalist was a large reason why. Hearing this
new guy really highlights how powerful Adam's voice is. Can't say I cared about the band since One-X,
and judging by this article, I never will.

I hope 3DG fans are prepared for an autotuned, sex-crazed, toothless, and even more unoriginal (heaven forbid) rendition of their favorite band, because that's what they're going to get, whether they like it or not.
