Canadian rockers Three Days Grace announce additional summer tour dates in support of their chart topping fifth studio album, Human. Just last month Human debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hard Music Albums Chart and their current single “Human Race” is already in the top 10 Active Rock Radio Chart. Human has already garnered two #1 singles, “I Am Machine” and “Painkiller” which marked the band’s 13th and fifth consecutive #1 on the Active Rock Radio Chart. Three Days Grace now holds the all time record for total #1 singles at the format.
Loudwire raved about Human “… the band’s awesome new album Human, has already spawned the chart-topping singles “Painkiller” and “I Am Machine,” as well as the newly released single “Human Race.” “Painkiller” was voted as Loudwire’s Best Rock Song of 2014 by readers. And that’s just the beginning of the great songs on this disc.”
On album release day, Three Days Grace rocked New York City’s Highline Ballroom as the first of many tour dates in support of the new album. Please see below for new tour dates.
Human was co-written by the band, produced by Gavin Brown and mixed by Chris Lorde-Alge and Nick Raskulinecz. “Human introduces heavier, darker shades to the band’s songwriting and sound…tracks like “I Am Machine” offer inspired, hook-laden riffs while “Painkiller” tackles more personal topics from a unique point of view,” wrote Guitar World. Three Days Grace reteamed with producer Gavin Brown who produced the band’s platinum selling 2003 self-titled album.
