(New York- January 9, 2013) THREE DAYS GRACE has announced that Matt Walst, lead singer of My Darkest Days (http://www.mydarkestdays.com/), will be joining the band as the lead singer for their North American tour starting with the Moline, IL show on February 1st and will continue throughout the tour. Former lead singer, Adam Gontier, has left the group effective immediately due to a health issue.

 

 In a quote from bassist Brad Walst, he stated "We were surprised and distressed by Adam's sudden departure.  We are however very excited for this upcoming tour, and to have my brother Matt stepping in as lead singer."

THREE DAYS GRACE recently wrapped over a dozen sold out, intimate venue shows in celebration of their recently released, Top 5 chart debuting album TRANSIT OF VENUS (RCA Records), which hit stores in October. In addition to debuting at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart, TRANSIT OF VENUS debuted at #1 on the Hard Rock Music Chart and #4 on the Digital Albums Chart. The band had the longest running #1 single of 2012 at mainstream and active rock radio formats (“Chalk Outline”), spending nearly 3 months at the top of the charts.  The 2nd single from Transit of Venus, High Road, goes to radio January 22nd.

 

In addition on December 11, 12, 13 they played very special hometown shows in Peterborough, Ontario where each night benefitted a charity of the band’s choice.

 

The band begins a co headline tour with  multiplatinum rock band SHINEDOWN and special guest P.O.D, kicking off on February 1 at the iWireless Center in Moline, IL (see below itinerary).
