From the first single, "(I Hate) Everything About You," which deals with love-hate relationships; to confronting and fighting for your individuality in "Just Like You," Three Days Grace writes songs of inner struggle and the desire, in a way, for freedom. Musically, there's a range from the eerie "Let You Down," with its near demented vocal to the progressive "Burn" with its intricate rhythms, to a more straight ahead rocker such as "Home."
"We saw a lot of crazy things growing up and a lot of our material comes from that," says drummer Neil Sanderson, the more garrulous of the three.
"I don't find it easy to write about happy shit," admits lead singer-guitarist Adam, somberly. "You don't need a release when you're happy."
Adam and Brad grew up in Norwood, a town of 1500 people, just one set of streetlights, but a city's worth of drama. "You get a different perspective on people," explains Brad. "Everyone knows each other and you can't hide anything. Maybe that's why we can see through the façade that many people hide behind."
Neil hails from Peterborough, just 25 minutes away, a bigger city, which has spawned model/actress Estella Warren and rocker Sebastian Bach. When the band first formed a rock group (under a different name with a different repertoire) in high school, Adam isn't exaggerating when he says, "all 1500 people in Norwood were supporting the band."
The guys didn't strategize about how to get their faces on MTV or land a coveted record deal. They just loved playing live, anywhere. "We opened for a movie once," Neil points out. "We used to cruise up to the Muskokas (Ontario cottage country) in my K car with a tent trailer on the back and play three hour sets at the local bars."
2009 saw Aranda's first single, "Still in the Dark," climb into the Top 30 in rock radio across the country, and American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson decided to cover two of the band's songs on her newest album, All I Ever Wanted.
One of the songs she covered, "Whyyawannabringmedown," is Aranda's follow-up single to "Still in the Dark." The high-energy song is an in-your-face rebellion, and was selected by the WWE as the official theme song of their event The Bash.
Aranda released a deluxe edition of their 2008 self-titled debut album, which includes live tracks and a radio mix of "Whyyawannabringmedown." Next up is a DVD/CD of their wall-shaking album release show called Aranda: Live From OKC.
Dameon and Gabe are no strangers to sharing the stage with big names in rock: during the past year, they have performed with hit bands such as the All American Rejects, Saliva, Shinedown, Puddle of Mudd, Theory of a Deadman, and Black Stone Cherry. With the brothers' flawless harmonies and passionate onstage performances, Aranda is a live show you'll never forget.
"We want to create high energy, keep rocking, keep everybody entertained. We want to involve the audience and make it fun for them," guitarist Dameon says. "Our hope is that you'll keep coming back for more."
The band has just finished recording their 2nd album "Stop the World" with Grammy Nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, Sevendust, Staind, Drowning Pool). The bands first single from the record is called 'Undone" and is currently climbing the active rock charts.
