Toronto based Three Days Grace is set rock The Bomb Factory on April 23rd along with P.O.D., Aranda, and NeVeRsEt.

Originally known as Groundswell when they started back in 1992, Three Days Grace have grown quite a lot. Their 2003 self-titled first album dominated the radio and charts, earning them their first Platinum Record. In 2006 their sophomore album One-X, featuring the popular song “Animal I Have Become” also hit Platinum in the US, and Double-Platinum in Canada.

Three Days Grace, known best for their breakout-hit “I Hate Everything About You”, are back with their latest album, Human. The platinum selling band is now fronted by Matt Walst, brother of the bassist Brad Walst. Along side the brothers are Neil Sanderson on drums, and Barry Stock on guitar.  With a new member comes a new sound. Guitar World says, “Besides bringing a familiar face to the band, Matt’s arrival heralds a new-found dynamic;Human introduces heavier, darker shades to the band’s songwriting and sound.”  Along with their new singer, Three Days Grace re-unites with producer Gavin Brown, who was at the helm for the band’s platinum-selling self-titled debut in 2003. In an interview with Guitar World, guitarist Barry Stock said, “Gavin is awesome because he brought us back to the past. When he’s with us, it’s almost like having a fifth member of the band…. Human is the perfect title for this record because there’s been a lot of inner-struggle and loss in the last few years. We’ve had a few people close to us pass on and some addiction and personal issues.”

P.O.D. is a three time Grammy winning and multi-platinum Christian alt-metal band formed in 1992. With 8 albums under their belts the band has sold over 12 million copies worldwide. Consisting of vocalist Sonny Sandoval, drummer Wuv Bernardo, guitarist Marcos Curiel, and bassist Traa Daniels, the band achieved initial commercial success with their third studio album The Fundamental Elements of Southtown.

Aranda, hailing from Oklahoma, released their first full length, self-titled record on April 22, 2008. The first single, “Still in the Dark”, peaked at No. 31 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. Aranda signed to Wind-Up Records in 2012.


The show is April 23rd at The Bomb Factory in Deep Ellum. NeVeRsEt is set to take the stage at 7:30, followed by Aranda, P.O.D. and headliners Three Days Grace.
