Three Days Grace Unleashes Lyric Video for ‘I Am Machine’

This is called a lyric video, but it's all band performance in the studio, too, so I'm thinking of it as the video for the song, that happens to have the lyrics on the screen, too.

Its the latest song from Three Days Grace, getting us ready for their new album, due out early 2015.

The band says this is an aggressive set of songs they've been recording for the new album, and that their new singer, Matt, has really grown in the songwriting, and is really sounding great with the band.

Did You Know That Art Prize Also Has Music Entries?

This is my first Art Prize, and I must say, there are a lot of...um...interesting things dumped all over downtown.  I will stick with interesting as the word for now, until I get a moment to wander around looking at it all closer.
