The Canadian rock band embarks on new creative ground with 'Transit Of Venus' recording for the first time with acclaimed producer Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Hollywood Undead, Bullet for My Valentine), at Revolution Studios in Toronto. The album’s first single entitled “Chalk Outline” is #1 on the Active Radio Chart today and was #1 most added at Modern and Active Rock Radio formats its first week out.

Neil Sanderson of Three Days Grace comments on the musical direction of 'Transit Of Venus': “We went for a tighter, more articulated sound on this record. The music we were writing was a little more intricate than in the past, and we've been experimenting with new instruments. We wanted to present these new ideas concisely without going over-the-top in ambience and overall production.”

Three Days Grace will also head out on a special and intimate 18-city tour in support of their new album 'Transit Of Venus.'

Hailed as music’s premier rock heavyweights, the quartet will kick off the tour in Dallas, Texas on Monday, October 8th and make stops in multiple cities across the country including New York, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, and Washington, D.C.
