Three Days Grace are a Canadian hard rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario, Canada in 1997
Starting out when the members were still in high school, the band currently comprises Matt Walst (Lead Vocals), Barry Stock (Lead Guitar), Brad Walst (Bass & Vocals) and Neil Sanderson (Drums, percussion, keyboards, programming). The band initially went by the name Groundswell before changing it to Three Days Grace in the late ‘90s.
The name Three Days Grace is best explained by Adam Gontier (a former and founder band member) as “It sort of stands for sense of urgency. Time to pay a debt. If you had three days to change something in your life or if wanted to change something in your life could you do it in three days?”
Three Days Grace self-titled first album was released in 2003 generating several singles and eventually earning platinum status. Their second album was released in 2006 entitled “One-X” – three singles went gold and the album once again platinum. Three Days Grace have gone on to release four further albums, “Life Starts Now” which was released in 2009, “Transit of Venus” 2012 “Human” 2015 and their latest album “The Outsider” in 2018.
