Three Days Grace will release their new album Outsider on 9th March via Music For Nations.
Outsider is the sixth full-length album from the band, and is their latest since 2015’s US chart-topping album Human.
“To me, Outsider represents the journey to find your place”, said 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.”
Three Days Grace have also released their new music video for The Mountain, via Vevo. 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.
Instead of congregating in a downtown Toronto rehearsal space, the band which consists of Matt Walst on vocals, Barry Stock on lead guitar, Brad Walst on bass, and Neil Sanderson on drums, 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”, said 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 much as it upholds tradition, Outsider represents progression for Three Days Grace. The band’s sound includes nods towards the influences of Nine Inch Nails, White Zombie,Bring Me The Horizon, Lana Del Rey, and a surprising cult classic, the movie Lost Boys.
