(New York – March 9th, 2018) Three Days Grace, an internationally acclaimed and multi- platinum certified Canadian band with over a billion streams on Spotify,  today releases their new album OUTSIDER   via RCA Records. OUTSIDER is the sixth full-length album from the band and is their latest since 2015’s chart-topping album Human.

The music video for first single “The Mountain” which Alt Press called a “…seismic new single” has been streamed 7 million times on YouTube alone, and the song is currently top 10 on the Billboard and Mediabase Rock charts. The song remained the #1 greatest gainer on the Active Rock Chart for the two weeks after its release, and is currently the #2 greatest gainer. Taped at a UFC octagon, the music video for Outsider’s first single was directed by Sean Cartwright and features a cameo by UFC fighter Misha Cirkunov. Recently, Three Days Grace also debuted “I Am An Outsider,” the second track from their forthcoming album, along with the album’s tracklisting via Billboard, who say “I Am The Outsider” “…defines both the theme of Three Days Grace’s upcoming album OUTSIDER and the Canadian band’s lyrical outlook in general.” Read Billboard’s interview with drummer Neil Sanderson and listen to “I Am An Outsider” here.

Last week, the band debuted their lyric video for “Right Left Wrong,” the third track revealed from their forthcoming album via Revolver who call it a “propulsive new song.” Check out “Right Left Wrong” via Revolver here.

Three Days Grace will also be touring with Avenged Sevenfold and Prophets of Rage- tour kicks off July 22nd in Mansfield, MA at the Xfinity Center. See tour dates below or CLICK HERE for more information.

“To me, Outsider represents the journey to find your place,” says bass player Brad Walst. “The world feels crazy at times. We try to get away from that every once in a while. We do our own thing, and we’re comfortable doing it. We have always looked forward—and not backwards. That’s an ongoing theme.” Preorder Outsider on all formats here: http://smarturl.it/3DGOutsider

Forging a new path forward is exactly what the musicians did in the fall of 2016. Instead of congregating in a downtown Toronto rehearsal space, the band which consists of Matt Walst [lead vocals], Barry Stock [lead guitar], Brad Walst [bass], and Neil Sanderson [drums, percussion, keyboards, programming], initially wrote in a converted garage behind Brad’s house located two hours from the city. “This is all about taking a step back from life’s madness without destroying yourself, cutting everyone off, or going crazy,” says Neil. “You get a break and find the space to create.” Eventually, the band retreated to Neil’s 90-acre farm to further hone ideas, and often sat around bonfires with acoustic guitars, tapping into the wild spirit surrounding them. As the songs took shape, the band headed to the Ontario’s remote Jukasa Studios, and called upon longtime friends and collaborators including producers Gavin Brown and Howard Benso, engineer Mike Plotnikoff and Chris Lord-Alge on mixing duties, for an album that speaks directly to their army of fans from around the globe.  “That production team hasn’t happened since One-X,” adds Neil. “We were lucky to get this group together. It made sense because we were in a similar headspace.”

As much as it upholds tradition, Outsider represents progression for Three Days Grace. Marking his second offering as part of the band, Matt showed “a new level of confidence and brought a ton of ideas, according to his brother Brad. Meanwhile, Neil expanded the signature electronic palette, integrating analog synths and standout programming with the help of Rhys Fulber [Fear Factory, Frontline Assembly]. He casually nodded to electronic influences as diverse as Nine Inch Nails, White Zombie, Bring Me The Horizon, Lana Del Rey, and a surprising cult classic, the movie Lost Boys. First single “The Mountain” evinces that evolution. Those cinematic sonic flourishes augment arena-ready riffs before summiting towards a seismic refrain, “I’m still surviving, keep climbing, keep climbing the mountain.”

Given this undeniable unpredictability, Outsider feels right at home alongside a catalog of fan favorites from Three Days Grace. Since 2003, the band has staked a spot amongst the hard rock vanguard, breaking records, toppling charts, moving millions of units worldwide, and making history by holding the all-time record for “most #1 singles at Active Rock Radio ever” with 13. In 2015, Human marked the group’s second straight #1 slot on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums Chart as well as their fourth consecutive debut in Top 20 of the Top 200. It spawned two #1 singles “Painkiller” and “I Am Machine,” signaling their 13th overall and 5th consecutive number ones on the Active Rock Radio chart. Moreover, the four-piece consistently averaged a staggering 3.9 million monthly listeners on Spotify—remaining one of the most listened to rock bands in the world. In 2012, Transit of Venus soared to the Top 5 of the Top 200 and garnered a nod for “Best Rock Album of the Year” at the Juno Awards. The seminal One-X [2006] notched an RIAA triple-platinum certification as Three Days Grace [2003] was minted platinum and Life Starts Now went gold. To date, their veritable arsenal of number one includes “Chalk Outline,” “The High Road,” “Misery Loves My Company,” “World So Cold,” “Good Life,” “Break,” “Never Too Late,” “Animal I Have Become,” “Pain,” “Just Like You,” and “Home.”
