Three Days Grace has announced that Matt Walst, lead singer of My Darkest Days, will be joining the band as the lead singer for their North American co-headlining tour with Shinedown, starting in Moline, IL on February 1st.
Former lead singer, Adam Gontier, has left the group effective immediately due to a health issue.
In response, Brad Walst stated: "We were surprised and distressed by Adam's sudden departure.  We are however very excited for this upcoming tour, and to have my brother Matt stepping in as lead singer."
Listen to Matt in rehearsal with Three Days Grace performing "The High Road," "Chalk Outline" and "Riot" - click here.

    I saw TDG last night in Baton Rouge. Great show but as stated below just not the same without Adam. Either way, I will go see them play whenever I can.

    Theres alot of people that i agree with on here, Matt Walst cannot sing and YES we are going to compare him to Adam! Sorry, hardcore 3dg fans here understand that only i guess. So what was the point of bringing someone in only temporarily if Matt is going to return to his previous band? Sucks! Such bull! Adam made the band worth listening too, tbh got me thru alot of bad times in my life! Just not ginna be the same if some young gun comes in trying to replace him! :(

    Guess my comment didnt make it lets try again... i will probably not listen to 3dg new music now that Adam is gone, because it was Adams voice that got me thru everything i did go thru, and for me he was the one who completed the band. This new guy sounds so young and i just dont want to listen to it. And i resent the fact that this young guy appears to be trying to look like Adam. Your not Adam. So, idk im sad. But i hope that Adam is ok! We love u! MISS U!!

    some Of you have to give matt a Break, Seriously. So he's not Adam. Only Adam is Adam, obviously. Matt is a good singer and better it be him joining 3DG than some amateur. The rest of the band allowed him to join and I for one trust there opinions. He has already proven himself worthy of 3DG status and he has many fans already.
    I just bought a ticket to see them live and I have no regrets.

    Its better than the band to stay rather than the whole band to break up. Between the Band Breaking up I strongly prefer Matt.... His voice was like Adam's when he sung Last to Know. I didn't even know it was him until I saw people say that it was Matt

    Of course it is really bad that Adam left 3DG but Matt Walst isn't bad. He sings really good and he is just trying to help 3DG. I think he is a good person.
