Three Days Grace definitely shocked fans Wednesday (Jan. 9) with the news that they were replacing frontman Adam Gontier with My Darkest Days' Matt Walst after Gontier resigned from the band due to a "non life threatening health issue."
As Three Days Grace fans continue to absorb the surprising news from earlier today (Jan. 9) that frontman Adam Gontier has left the band, the singer himself has released a heartfelt letter explaining his departure.
The rock world was definitely in shock earlier today (Jan. 9), learning that not only was Adam Gontier exiting his post as singer of Three Days Grace, but that the band had already selected My Darkest Days frontman Matt Walst to replace him on their upcoming tour.
Shocker alert! Frontman Adam Gontier has resigned from Three Days Grace just weeks prior to their upcoming co-headlining tour with Shinedown. The band has replaced Gontier with My Darkest Days singer Matt Walst for the trek.
Three Days Grace are enjoying one of the biggest hits of their career with 'Chalk Outline,' and fans of the band will now have a chance to see how the song came together thanks to a new "in the studio" video that's debuting exclusively here at Loudwire.
Just a few weeks ago, Shinedown and Three Days Grace announced the first leg of a co-headlining U.S. tour that kicks off in February 2013. Now, the two bands have added a second leg of dates to the trek.
Tis the season to give back, and Three Days Grace will be doing so on three consecutive nights in their hometown of Peterborough, Ontario next month. The group has revealed a series of shows, promoted as "Three Days of Giving," with all the proceeds going to a different charity each night.
In a pairing of hit-making rock acts, Three Days Grace and Shinedown are teaming up for a co-headlining U.S. arena tour kicking off in February 2013. Adding more firepower to the bill will be opening act P.O.D.
Three Days Grace are usually pretty good about signing on for causes, but bassist Brad Walst has a personal reason for participating in the James Fund's walk-run fundraiser for neuroblastoma research. His young son was diagnosed as having a cancerous neuroblastoma tumor several years ago.
