Three Days Grace Confirm That Matt Walst Will Continue as Band’s Frontman

Subscribe to WRRV on

What many had suspected has now been confirmed as Three Days Grace will continue their career with Matt Walst officially taking over as the band’s new frontman.

Walst, who also sings with My Darkest Days, is the brother of Three Days Grace bassist Brad Walst and was called upon to fill in after the sudden exit of longtime frontman Adam Gontier. The vocalist helped the band complete their previously scheduled dates with Shinedown and then stayed on board as they added more shows in 2013.

In a new statement posted by the band, they confirmed Walst’s continued participation with Three Days Grace. Their post reads as follows:

First we want to thank you the fans for all your support this past 15 months. You embraced us on the road, on the radio and made this thing we do fun.

We always talk about being onstage pushing all that energy out, and when we get all that energy back tenfold, it’s just amazing to see. It’s an honor to have had so much support over the past 15 months, and once again, you’ve confirmed what we’ve always known, that we have the best fans in the world.

We are happy to announce that Matt will be a part of Three Days Grace. Matt has been on the road with us, and has been writing with us since 2003. Bringing Matt into the 3DG family is a no-brainer…he’s always been in it.

Your first taste of new Three Days Grace may be even sooner than you think. Big things happening next week. Stay tuned….

What is not known is if this decision impacts My Darkest Days in any way. At the time he signed on to help out Three Days Grace, Walst’s band had just begun writing sessions for a new record. It was stated at that time that the singer intended to do both bands and there has been no suggestion that anything has changed.
