Three Days Grace Add More 2013 Tour Dates With New Singer Matt Walst
Three Days Grace will extend their touring with newly installed singer Matt Walst beyond their two legs of shows with Shinedown. The band has just tacked on 11 new gigs that will take place during the months of April and May.
P.O.D., who have been out on the road with Three Days Grace and Shinedown, will share the stage with Three Days Grace during their May 7 stop in Corpus Christi, but their participation in the remainder of the tour has not been confirmed. The new trek launches April 17 in Portland, Maine, and runs through a May 17 finale in Youngstown, Ohio.
Three Days Grace have employed My Darkest Days frontman Matt Walst as their singer since the beginning of the year, revealing in January that longtime vocalist Adam Gontier had split from the group. Walst, the brother of Three Days Grace bassist Brad Walst, intends on balancing both of his groups for the time being. Three Days Grace have expressed their desire to continue their career even though Gontier is no longer with the band and plan to address their future once touring is complete.
