This Day In Rock. Three Days Grace
Matt Walst was born in Norwood, Ontario, Canada on December 28th 1982.
Younger brother of Brad Walst, the bassist for the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace, Matt founded the rock band My Darkest Days in 2005 with his friends Brendan McMillan on bass, Doug Oliver on drums and Chris McMillan on lead guitar.
My Darkest Days won a contest called Rock Search put on by HTZ FM in St. Catharines, Ontario in 2008 with ‘Every Lie’ (watch and listen below). This gave them time in a recording studio publicity in Niagara, Ontario. It gave the band money to tour for a year as well.
Following frontman Adam Gontier’s departure from Three Days Grace in 2013, Matt Walst was brought on as their replacement lead vocalist for their tour, and was later made the permanent lead singer of the band.
They released an album titled ‘Human’ on March 31, 2015 with Walst's vocals being featured for the first time with the group.
