Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier has suddenly left the band due to health issues.
Although his condition is not life threatening he's been forced to resign from Three Days Grace. As the band is not to cancel their American tour, Matt Walst from My Darkest Days will fill in for the upcoming shows.
If at first it seemed that Adam's departure was just temporary, latest band's update may lead to understand that this is a no way back choice.
Here you have the band's recent update :
"Further to our press release of this morning we wanted to write to you directly our fans about the news of the day. We appreciate everyone’s concern about Three Days Grace. We found out on December 21st that Adam wished to resign from the band. In a letter to us Adam indicated that he was resigning from the band due to a non life threatening health issue and wanted the band to continue moving forward without him. We were as shocked as many of you were to hear the news. Three Days Grace has always been and will continue to be not only our job but our passion. Instead of cancelling the tour, we felt an obligation to you, the fans, to forge ahead and put on the best show we can. Brad recently reached out to his brother Matt Walst, lead singer for My Darkest Days to fill in for the tour dates already announced. We've been hanging out and rehearsing with Matt and look forward to rocking the stage in a few weeks! As of right now, Matt's role is temporary and as far as the future and beyond this tour, we are taking it one day at a time. - 3DG"
