Gold Certified 2009 Effort Available on Vinyl for the First Time!
Platinum-selling Toronto-based rock band Three Days Grace reunited with producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Motorhead), for their third full-length effort, 2009's Life Starts Now, yet another emotional rollercoaster which finds the band confronting death and dishonesty and redefining what life is and what it means to be alive after you hit rock bottom.
Several tracks address powerful feelings of loss whether through betrayal, on "Bitter Taste" and "Last To Know," or death, on "World So Cold" and "Without You." The band switches things up on the more upbeat "The Good Life," which asks: "If you were to live a different life, what would you want to get out of it?" Adam Gontier explains. Then there's the fiery lead single "Break," which Adam Gontier says explores not being controlled by your surroundings or environment. "It's about breaking away from being told what to do and living the life that you want to live."
A sense of adventure permeates Life Starts Now, which the band began writing after coming off the road for One-X in April 2008. Though the album doesn't skimp on Gontier's trademark anguished vocals, Barry Stock's urgent riffs, or Neil Sanderson and Brad Walst's thunderous rhythm section, the band knew that they had evolved as musicians and wanted to capture it in their sound. The result is an album that brims with confidence, musicality, and accessibility, while retaining what has made Three Days Grace so beloved by their fans: their authenticity.
