‘Transit of Venus,’ the fourth studio album from Three Days Grace, is due out on Oct. 2, but fans can now hear the entire album in the player below.

The debut single ‘Chalk Outline’ from the forthcoming disc, has been heating up radio and music charts alike. ‘Transit of Venus’ also includes a rendition of Michael Jackson’s ‘Give in To Me.’

In IGN.com’s interview with drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, he talks about what Three Days Grace were going for with this new album.

“This one is definitely a little tighter and more articulated. We wanted to take a different approach with this record, and we wanted to push the boundaries as far as our sound and what we're singing about -- dig a little bit deeper than a lot of the other rock bands that we're hearing out there these days” says Sanderson.

He goes on to say, “We thought outside the box a little bit and tried not to be as formulaic, experimenting with multiple layers ... We wanted to have songs that felt more progressive ... without alienating our original sound. We still sound like Three Days Grace, and we wanted to keep it real.”

Three Days Grace will keep it real with a North American tour in support of ‘Transit of Venus,’ which starts in October. For a full list of dates and cities, go here.
