VIDEO: NEW Three Days Grace, A song that everyone should hear

zdksdiojasdf889e48jzsdkfmdf_r

The video for "Lifetime" was filmed in Mayfield, Kentucky, and is dedicated to the people of Mayfield, where one of the deadliest tornados in recent history devastated the town in December 2021. To help the people of Mayfield, you can donate to help the people of Mayfield, you can donate to:

Mayfield Tornado Relief Fund https://smarturl.it/3DGLIFETIME

Whatever your situation or your story, whatever haunts you....Please listen. LIFE IS TOO SHORT. Never miss a chance to tell someone that You Love Them ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 

Three Days Grace will release their new album "EXPLOSIONS" on May 6th.

"Lifetime is about loss. It also speaks to the human condition to push forward and put one foot in front of the other even when you wake up and your world is turned upside down. Barry lives 2 hours to the north of Mayfield and when the tornado struck he not only knew people directly affected but days later found photos and debris in his own backyard; hitting, in more ways than one, close to home. The Mayfield community has shown hope and resilience in the face of unimaginable devastation. When we discussed how we wanted to visually portray this song the story of Mayfield immediately came up. We travelled down to Kentucky from Toronto in March. To see it all with our own eyes and to meet some of the families while overwhelming at times it was also a reminder to us and hopefully to all of you that while there is suffering there is also hope, resilience and strength around every corner all over the world." - Three Days Grace

PAPA ROACHRELEASE ELEVENTH STUDIO ALBUM EGO TRIP - LOS ANGELES, CA – APRIL 8, 2022 – After two years of work and nearly 10 months of building up excitement with fans, Papa Roach are celebrating the release of their eleventh studio album EGO TRIP today.

An album that sprouted almost by mistake in the throes of a global lockdown, its seeds were planted when the quartet entered a COVID-secure mansion in Temecula, California in the summer of 2020. What started as an escape and an exercise in keeping the creative juices flowing, in a world that had completely ground to a halt, quickly grew into something bigger. Purposeful, provocative, and just the right side of the line between confident and cocky ("I really hope [the album title] stops a few people in their tracks" cackles front manJacoby Shaddix), EGO TRIP is Papa Roach - completed by guitarist Jerry Horton, bassist Tobin Esperance and drummer Tony Palermo - at its boldest and most brilliant.

"Throughout my life I've embarked on this constant journey to unravel this...thing," begins Jacoby on the inspiration behind EGO TRIP. "This eternal paradigm; this struggle between the light and the dark. I see it alive in the world and it's something I'm constantly trying to find balance in with regards to my own life. Who is at the wheel of my ego? Is it the high-frequency version of myself, the one who is more spiritual and self-aware, or is it the low-frequency version who can be selfish, self-centered and self-seeking? Throughout the process of making this record, we had some really profound conversations about life, who is at the helm of our egos and what it is that drives and motivates us."

Fans have had a chance to dive into singles "Cut The Line", "Stand Up", "Dying To Believe", "Kill The Noise" (which held the no. 1 position on the Mainstream Rock Charts for over a month) and genre-bending banger of a single "Swerve" featuring Jason Aalon Butler (Fever 333) and Sueco over the last few months, but are in for a treat with a handful of new songs including "No Apologies" a catchy, quintessential, modern rock anthem that the band are known for. All 14 tracks were pulled from a 2020 writing session with the iconic rock band and a tight-knit creative team including familiar collaborators Colin "Doc" Brittain, Nick Furlong, Jason Evigan and new team members WZRD BLD and Andrew Goldstein.

On top of these past releases, Papa Roach have connected with fans through unique partnerships with TikTok, San Francisco 49ers, Twitter, ESPN UFC and more. The band also took over the iconic Shakey's Pizza on Santa Monica Blvd in Los Angeles for a one-of-a-kind release party last night.

EGO TRIP is available to stream and purchase today via New Noize Records, the band's re-launched label with its roots from 2001, in partnership with ADA Worldwide (WMG's independent label and artist services arm) at https://PapaRoach.lnk.to/egotrip.

We're gonna have a great time on this tour, and we can't wait to see you there."

They remain one of the best live bands I've ever seen," said Amy Lee of Evanescence. "It's an honor and a thrill to go out with our friends again, our first full tour together since '07.
