Three Days Grace 'Animal I Have Become' #1 3 Weeks and Growing at R&R Active Rock
#4 at Modern Rock Radio
#1 Greatest Gainer
New Release: One-X
Jive Recording Artist Three Days Grace are breaking all previous personal records with sales of more than 160,000 in just 4 weeks with their new release, One-X. The band entered the Billboard Top 200 charts at #5! Amazing news, as their previous debut-album, which went platinum, never sold more that 34,000 in a single week and only reached #69 on the chart.
"Animal I Have Become," the first single from One-X, is still currently #1 this week at active rock at R&R and BDS! It is also #4 and climbing on the Alternative Rock radio charts. The video is Top 5 on FUSE and winner of FUSE's Oven Fresh. Three Days Grace has had 3 Top 5 singles on both Alternative and Active with their debut album, but "Animal I Have Become" is the band's first #1 single across the board.
One-X follows the band's 2003 self-titled platinum album, which saw Adam, Neil, Brad, and Barry on the road for over 2 years. Currently touring to promote their new release One-X, Three Days Grace are currently touring the US with fellow Canadian rockers, Nickelback. The band just finished a highly successful tour with Staind.
According to lead singer Adam Gontier, "Animal I Have Become" is "my realization that change had to happen, I had to ask for help." With stomping bass lines backing him up, Gontier pleads, "Somebody get me through this nightmare / I can't control myself." Adam's lyrics are both surprisingly open and defiantly delivered in the line: "So what if you can see / the darkest side of me."
You can catch the band performing their hit single on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Monday, July 31st.
Hailing from Canada, Three Days Grace find a way to rock hard, without losing the emotional, real connection they have to their audience. With songs from One-X that unleash sharp, relentless harmonies, matched with razor edged lyrics, the band is poised to take over the music scene once again.
One-X was produced by Howard Benson, mixed by Chris Lord-Alge and mastered by Ted Jensen.
Prior to recording One-X throughout the later part of 2005, the band toured for over 2 years to sold-out crowds in support of their debut platinum album, Three Days Grace, which produced 3 hit singles. "I Hate Everything About You" peaked at #2 on Modern & Active charts and stayed there for 47 weeks. "Just Like You" was #1 on Billboard New Artist Chart for 3 weeks, and according to Mediabase, was the second most played Rock song of 2004. "Home" entered Top 5 on both Billboard Active and Modern Charts. All three singles received heavy play on Fuse, MTV 2, and Much Music, leading to the band's nomination for Best New Artist in the 2004 Billboard Awards and the 2004 Juno Awards.
Three Days Grace is Adam Gontier (vocals/guitar), Brad Walst (bass), Barry Stock (guitar) and Neil Sanderson (drums).
