3 Doors Down


3 Doors Down is an American alternative rock band formed in Escatawpa, Mississippi in 1994.


The band formed in Escatawpa, Mississippi as a trio, consisting of vocalist and drummer Brad Arnold, bassist Todd Harrell and guitarist Matt Roberts.

Brad Arnold is the vocalist for the band and played the drums on the studio recording of their album The Better Life. He started singing full time for the band after a gig where no one else would sing except him and he found he enjoyed it.

Greg Upchurch, formerly of Puddle of Mudd, is the drummer who replaced Daniel Adair in 2005. Daniel left to be the drummer for Nickelback.

Josh Freese contributed drums for the band's second studio album, Away from the Sun. Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson produced and played on 3 tracks for the record, "Dangerous Game", "Dead Love", and "Wasted Me" (only "Dangerous Game" appeared on the album). Daniel Adair was the drummer on Seventeen Days and the live album, Another 700 Miles.

In 2005 the band released a "live" DVD titled "Away from the Sun "LIVE" from Houston, Texas". The DVD was produced and directed by Academy Award nominated Alex Gibney and Doug Biro. It was released by Monster Music in 2005.


3 Doors Down is currently "Back in the studio" On their Homepage it says that a "New Album From 3DD Coming Later This Year" will be released this fall.
