On Friday, Three Days Grace, a multi-Platinum-selling Canadian band, released their seventh studio album, “Explosions,” via RCA Records. With the album, the iHeart Radio and Billboard award-winning Ontario quartet – Matt Walst (lead vocals), Barry Stock (lead guitar), Brad Walst (bass) and Neil Sanderson (drums, percussion, keyboards, programming) – “balance moments of extreme emotion on an axis of pummeling hard rock anthems and pensive balladry.”
Throughout their career, the band have amassed billions of streams and millions of album sales, sold out arenas on multiple continents, and reached the highest of heights, earning 17 total No. 1 entries on the Mediabase Active Rock Chart, and 16 total No. 1 singles on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs Chart.
“Explosions” is available on all formats here.
This week, the band launched its “Lifetime” Memories page (https://lifetime.threedaysgrace.com/), where fans can submit memories they hold dear, which ties into some of the underlying themes behind their latest single, “Lifetime,” including loss and persevering in the face of it. The band will then update the Spotify Canvas for “Lifetime” with different memories that fans submit.
Three Days Grace has also launched their “Explosions” listening party room. The band will join fans in the listening party room to chat with fans about the new album, while listening to the album together. Exact timing to be announced and more details are available at http://3dgexplosions.com/.
Three Days Grace recently announced their headlining tour of the U.S. and Canada. The band will perform in cities including Boston, Houston, Atlanta, Vancouver and Edmonton. The band will be joined by special guests Wage War & Zero 9:36 on select U.S. dates and special guests The Warning & The Standstills on select Canadian dates. Tickets for dates and VIP packages are available here.
The band recently also shared a new music video for “Lifetime.” The music video was filmed in the town of Mayfield, Kentucky, which was devastated on Dec. 10, 2021, when an EF4 tornado tore through Western Kentucky. This hit home for the band, as guitarist Barry Stock lives in the area, and band taped the music video for the song in the town to raise awareness and funds to help them rebuild. Three Days Grace has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 of every ticket sold for their U.S. tour dates will go to support tornado recovery efforts in Mayfield, Kentucky. Proceeds will benefit the Mayfield Tornado Relief Fund and Mayfield Independent School District.
