3 Day Grace


Three Days Grace (also known as 3DG or TDG) is a Canadian hard rock/post-grunge band formed in 1997. The band consists of Adam Gontier, Neil Sanderson, Brad Walst and Barry Stock.


Originally formed as a quintet in 1992 under the name "Groundswell", they changed their name to Three Days Grace and became a trio in 1997. They released a 3 song self titled demo in 2000. The group moved from Norwood to Toronto and met producer Gavin Brown,formerly of the band Big Sugar. Brown helped produce their self-titled debut album, Three Days Grace, which was released in 2003; it reached the top ten of the American albums chart, the top 100 of the Canadian Billboard 200 albums chart, and number-one on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart. Upon completion of the album the band recruited Barry Stock to help on lead guitar to give Adam breathing room on stage and on tour. The album's lead single, "I Hate (Everything About You)", reached number one on the US Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts and number two on the Canadian Rock charts. The second single, "Just Like You", gave the group a second number-one in America and also hit number one on rock charts in Canada. Their third single, "Home", was also a hit, charting at #2 on the US Modern Rock chart, and was the second most played Active Rock song of 2005. A fourth single, "Wake Up," was only released in Canada and also achieved success on the Canadian Rock chart. Videos for the first three singles were widely played on MTV, MTV2, Muchmusic and Fuse.

Brown won a Juno Award in 2004 for his production on the album and his work on Try Honesty by the band Billy Talent. Three Days Grace was also nominated for best New Group Of The Year but lost to Billy Talent.

On March 31, 2006, the band released their first single off of their album One-X entitled "Animal I Have Become," which managed to reach number one on both the US Modern Rock and US Mainstream Rock. One-X was released on June 13, 2006, and landed at #5 on the U.S. Billboard 200. In the record's first week, it sold over 78,000 copies. The album's second single, "Pain", was also released topping the Billboard Mainstream Rock Charts in December of 2006 and the Modern Rock Tracks Chart in February of 2007. "Never Too Late" was released as the third single off of One X in April of 2007.

The band has already started work on their third album, it is scheduled to come out some time in 2008. The band will take the summer of 2007 off from touring.
