Three Days Grace performs with Adam Gontier for first time since 2012

On Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at Propst Arena in Huntsville, Alabama, Three Days Grace performed with its original vocalist, Adam Gontier, for the first time since 2012.

Early Thursday morning, April 20, the band posted a photo on social media of its four current members onstage with Gontier and wrote, “Soooo we did a thing.”

According to, Three Days Grace closed its set opening for Shinedown by performing “Never Too Late” and “Riot” with Gontier.

Gontier abruptly quit the band in early 2013, just weeks before a co-headline arena tour with Shinedown. Three Days Grace quickly recruited My Darkest Days frontman Matt Walst, the brother of bassist Brad Walst, to fill in, and he eventually became the band’s permanent vocalist.

The current lineup of Three Days Grace, which also includes drummer Neil Sanderson and guitarist Barry Stock, has released three albums, with the most recent, “Explosions,” coming in 2022. The band’s success has continued, with seven singles in that time reaching number 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart.

Gontier formed Saint Asonia with Staind guitarist Mike Mushok, debuting in 2015. That band has released two full-length albums and, in 2022, a pair of EPs, “Introvert” and “Extrovert.”
