Since January 2013, My Darkest Days singer, Matt Walst, has the front man for Three Days Grace. Former singer, Adam Gontier left the band in the first few days of 2013 due to mental health issues. Matt was a temporary singer at first, but was made official in June of 2013. They also recently released a statement reiterating this official announcement. Most seem to have forgotten that this was announced last year, and have made a big fuss about it.
Contrary to the false popular belief, Adam Gontier has been the only vocalist on the records. Many began mistaking Matt Walst for Adam not only at shows, but on the records. With the exception of the three sample songs they released along with the announcement of Adam's departure (Riot, The High Road, and Chalk Outline.), Matt had not previously recorded with the band. That is until now.
Today, Three Days Grace released a brand new song, "Painkiller" via YouTube. You can check the song out below. Please feel free to give your feedback on the song, as well as the change in sound for the band.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
