Canada’s Three Days Grace will release its new album, “Outsider”, on March 9 via RCA. “Outsider” is the sixth full-length album from the band, and is the group’s first since 2015’s “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.”
They are debuted the music video for “The Mountain”.
“This is all about taking a step back from life’s madness without destroying yourself, cutting everyone off, or going crazy,” says Neil. “You get a break and find the space to create.” Eventually, the band retreated to Neil’s 90-acre farm to further hone ideas, and often sat around bonfires with acoustic guitars, tapping into the wild spirit surrounding them. As the songs took shape, the band headed to the Ontario’s remote Jukasa Studios, and called upon longtime friends and collaborators including producers Gavin Brown and Howard Benso, engineer Mike Plotnikoff and Chris Lord-Alge on mixing duties, for an album that speaks directly to their army of fans from around the globe. “That production team hasn’t happened since ‘One-X’,” adds Neil. “We were lucky to get this group together. It made sense because we were in a similar headspace.”
