Today, Three Days Grace, the internationally acclaimed and multi-platinum certified Canadian band confirm that their new seventh studio album, EXPLOSIONS, will be released on May 6th via RCA Records. EXPLOSIONS is available for pre-order on all formats here.
The band today also share their new single, “So Called Life.” The song is the first new original music from the band since their Juno Award-nominated Outsider (RCA Records), and Matt Walst of the band shares, “in these crazy & divided times, everyone needs something to take the edge off.” The new song is accompanied by a music video directed by Jon Vulpine, who reveals: “I wanted to make this video really raw and stripped down. Something high energy with extreme angles and fast movements. A bunch of old analog gear in this 70’s apartment that looked like some hoarder died in it 20 years ago and the guys just came in and recorded. I didn’t want to go for a clean and super polished look so Justin Jones, my DP suggested these rehoused 1960’s Japanese lenses for a grittier more contrasty feel. That along with different lens distortions and attachments just added to the diversity of shots.” Listen to “So Called Life” here and watch the music video here.
The band have recently confirmed tour dates throughout April and May of 2022 in cities including Charleston, Cincinnati, and Madison (full dates below). Black Veil Brides, Motionless in White, Ice Nine Kills, and Lilith Czar will support Three Days Grace on select dates, and the band will support Godsmack in Tampa, Orlando, Newark, Worcester, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis.
