Canadian heavyweights Three Days Grace are set to make their return to the UK this October.
“We are so excited to come back to the UK for these shows and especially to play cities we haven’t been before,” says Neil Sanderson “The UK audience has always been really supportive and our show at Download Festival has always ranked up there as one of our faves.”
In anticipation, the band are pleased to release new single Infra-Red, which features on their recent album Outsider out now on Music For Nations. It’s the sixth full-length album from the band, following 2015’s chart-topping album Human. “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.”

Recently, Three Days Grace invited London fans to listen to some of the album prior to its release. Watch footage from the intimate event here.
Singles I Am An Outsider and The Mountain garnered support from Kerrang! Radio. The Mountain also earned the band their 13th #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart – tying with the legendary Van Halen who reached this record in 1998.
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 US 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 14th overall and 5th consecutive number ones on the Active US 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  notched an RIAA triple-platinum certification as Three Days Grace  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. ”
