Three Days Grace

Three Days Grace has its origins in a band called Groundswell, which formed in 1992 in Norwood, Ontario. They released one full-length album, Wave of Popular Feeling. The line-up consisted of vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer Neil Sanderson, bassist Brad Walst, lead guitarist Phil Crowe, and secondary guitarist Joe Grant. Most of the members were attending high school when the band initially formed.

By end of 1995, Phil Crowe and Joe Grant had left Groundswell. In 1997, Gontier, Sanderson, and Walst regrouped and changed the band name to "Three Days Grace". According to Gontier, the name stands for a sense of urgency with the question being whether someone could change something in one's life if one had only three days to make a change. Once in Toronto, the band became acquainted with local producer Gavin Brown. The band gave him several years of material that they had created since forming, and he "picked out what he called 'the golden nuggets'", according to Gontier. Brown and the band polished the songs into a demo album which they gave to EMI Music Publishing Canada. The record label wanted to hear more material, and with Brown producing, the band created the song, "I Hate Everything About You", which attracted the interest of several record labels.The band was soon signed to Jive Records after being sought out by the company's president.


Three Days Grace is a Canadian post-grunge band, formed under the name of Groundswell in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1992.
Originally a cover band, the trio named the band Three Days Grace. The meaning is derived from a sense of urgency as Adam Gontier explains: "We sort of look at Three Days Grace, as it sort of stands for sense of urgency. Time to pay a debt. If you had three days to change something in your life or if [you] wanted to changed something in your life, could you do it in three days?"
In 2004, Gavin Brown won a Juno Award for his production work on Three Days Grace and "Try Honesty" by Billy Talent.
On October 7, 2008, Adam Gontier lent his voice to Avaaz.org, along with other Canadian singers, in an effort to raise hope and awareness about Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper's stance on climate change.
In 2007, Gontier recorded a song called "I Don't Care" with the band Apocalyptica. During this time, the band also went on tour with bands Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Seether, Skillet, Nickelback, Hoobastank, Trapt, Puddle of Mudd, 3 Doors Down, Flyleaf, 12 Stones, Red, Econoline Crush, and many others.
