THREE DAYS GRACE To Release 'Human' Album In March

According to The Pulse Of Radio, THREE DAYS GRACE has revealed that the band's fifth studio album will be called "Human" and will arrive on March 31. The announcement comes just as the first single, "I Am Machine", tops the rock radio chart and gives the Canadian act its thirteenth No. 1 track on the survey. That breaks THREE DAYS GRACE's own record of twelve chart-toppers, the most at the format, which includes "Painkiller", "Misery Loves My Company", "Chalk Outline", "World So Cold", "Animal I Have Become" and "Home".

THREE DAYS GRACE drummer Neil Sanderson said about the latest single: "Sonically, we wanted to create a 'machine-like' sound in parts of the song. We were inspired by the images from the opening scene of Tim Burton's 'Edward Scissorhands'… relentless machines turning and churning, never ceasing to operate. Lyrically the song is about how sometimes you feel like you are in an endless routine and cannot escape… you begin to feel numb to the world around you, as you yearn to just feel anything, any emotion."

"Human" will follow up 2012's "Transit Of Venus".

The new album will be the first to feature frontman Matt Walst, brother of bassist Brad Walst. Matt replaced original singer Adam Gontier in early 2013 and was officially made a member of the band last March.

Sanderson told The Pulse Of Radio that Matt fit naturally into the way that THREE DAYS GRACE writes songs. "You know, we've always been a big collaborative band, and in fact, you know, Matt had some co-writing on our first THREE DAYS GRACE album in 2003 as well as 'Transit Of Venus', and, obviously, on this new body of work that we've got. So in that way, it was kind of natural to kind of just keep the guitars rolling and keep writing and do what we've always done, and here we are today."

Sanderson said about the new album: "We went back to our roots a bit and recaptured that collaborative feeling of being in a band and bringing out the best ideas in each other… We feel like we're back in those days where we're high-fiving each other with guitars in our hands."

THREE DAYS GRACE's next U.S. date is at the Northern Invasion festival in Somerset, Wisconsin on May 9.
