The rock band Three Days Grace was formed in Ontario, in 1997. The current lineup includes Brad Walst, Neil Sanderson, Barry Stock, and Matt Walst. The band is particularly famous for such hits as “I Hate Everything About You”, “Animal I Have Become”, and “Never Too Late”. In 2007, the band was named Rock Artist Of The Year by Billboard.
Canadian post grunge group Three Days Grace was initially called Groundswell. They released one album Wave of Popular Feeling when most of the members were still in high school. In 1995, the group disbanded but some of the members stayed to form Three Days Grace.
The musicians met a local producer Gavin Brown, who agreed to take a look at their records. He chose several songs and helped the band record a demo album, which the group sent to EMI label. EMI was interested in the band but asked for more songs. Together with Brown Three Days Grace recorded the debut single “I Hate Everything About You”. The single was a success and resulted in several offers from the labels. Eventually, the band signed a deal with Jive Records.
