Three Days Grace Reveal New Album ‘Transit of Venus’

After teasing fans on Facebook and Twitter that they were going to make a big announcement on June 5, Three Days Grace have revealed that they’re releasing a new album. Their fourth studio disc in nine years, Transit of Venus will drop in stores later this fall.

Three Days Grace confirmed the news on their official website, releasing a teaser trailer about Transit of Venus that you can watch below. The video starts off with a quote from poet, physician and professor Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., that says, “A black, round spot, – and that is all / Such a speck our earth would be / If he who looks upon the stars / Through the red atmosphere of Mars / Could see our little creeping ball.

The clip continues with footage of Three Days Grace recording in the studio and ends with a release date of October 2, 2012. It certainly was not a coincidence that the band announced their new album on the same day as Venus’ visible transit around the sun, which happens roughly every 243 years. The Canadian rockers were even kind enough to provide a link from NASA of the Transit of Venus.

Transit of Venus is the follow-up to their 2009 release, Life Starts Now. Check out our interview with frontman Adam Gontier and bassist Brad Walst when Three Days Grace were in town last September here.
