Three Days Grace Announce New Album Title + Add to Own Record With 13th No. 1 Single
Three Days Grace have announced the title of their upcoming album. The effort will be called ‘Human’ and it’s due out March 31. Their upcoming disc has already spawned two No. 1 hits on the Active Rock radio chart with ‘Painkiller' and their latest chart-topper, ‘I Am Machine.’
Congratulations are also in order for Three Days Grace, because when ‘I Am Machine’ reached the top spot on the latest chart, 3DG added to their own record as the band with the most No. 1 songs in that format. They now have had 13 No. 1 singles spanning more than a decade on the Active Rock charts. ‘I Am Machine’ is also 3DG's fifth consecutive No. 1 hit.
In a press release, drummer Neil Sanderson talks about working with producer Gavin Brown once again for their upcoming disc ‘Human.’ Brown produced their hit 2003 self-titled debut disc. Sanderson explains, “We went back to our roots a bit and recaptured that collaborative feeling of being in a band and bringing out the best ideas in each other. Gavin was a huge part of that in the beginning and we feel like we’re back in those days where we’re high-fiving each other with guitars in our hands.”
This will be the first album for the group with their new singer Matt Walst at the helm. Matt, who is the brother of bassist Brad Walst, started performing with the group in early 2013 after founding lead singer Adam Gontier left the band to "evolve on his own terms." Matt would later be named a permanent member of Three Days Grace.
