THREE DAYS GRACE are set to release their seventh studio album, “Explosions”, on May 6 via RCA Records.
The official lyric video for the LP’s first single, “So Called Life”, can be seen below. The song is the first new original music from THREE DAYS GRACE since the Juno Award-nominated “Outsider” album came out in 2018.
When “So Called Life” was first released last November, it was accompanied by a Jon Vulpine-directed music video. At the time, THREE DAYS GRACE singer Matt Walst stated about the track: “In these crazy and divided times, everyone needs something to take the edge off.”
Vulpine added: “I wanted to make this video really raw and stripped down. Something high energy with extreme angles and fast movements. A bunch of old analog gear in this ’70s apartment that looked like some hoarder died in it 20 years ago and the guys just came in and recorded. I didn’t want to go for a clean and super polished look, so Justin Jones, my DP, suggested these rehoused 1960s Japanese lenses for a grittier more contrasty feel. That, along with different lens distortions and attachments, just added to the diversity of shots.”
THREE DAYS GRACE has announced more than a dozen U.S. dates for April and May, including a number of headlining concerts and radio shows as the support act for GODSMACK.
