Suddenly without warning, Three Days Grace singer Adam Gontier has quit the band, due to health issues.
He will be replaced by Matt Walst, front man of My Darkest Days and younger brother of the bands bassist Brad Walst. This is the second announcement relating to My Darkest Days in two weeks. Guitarist Sal Coz Coasta announced his departure one day after he married, in the first week of January 2013.
Although Walst Jnr has a great live vocal, he is not nearly as emotional and nor does he have the depth of Gontier, who could make his audience shake a building with his showmanship and incredible voice. This could in all reality, be a very bad move for Three Days Grace, whose audience are used to much grittier and way heavier in the way of a voice.
Although rumours abound, no official statement has been given to the actual health reasoning behind Gontiers decision, but one thing is for sure, 2013 has not been great for Canadian Rock so far!
