The band consisted of Adam Gontier (vocals, guitar), Brad Walst (bass), and Neil Sanderson (drums). Later, having moved to Toronto, the musicians met producer Gavin Brown, with whose help they recorded their famous “(I Hate) Everything About You”, which soon led to a contract with EMI and record label “Jive”. Following this, Three Days Grace, along with Gavin Brown, began work on their debut album, which was released in 2003.

In 2007, the band was named Best Rock Band by Billboard magazine, in addition to being ranked 4th on the list of most-rotated bands in Canada.On December 21, 2012, frontman Adam Gontier left the band, and since then the band and Adam have continued their activities separately from each other. For the duration of the tour in support of the last album, Adam’s place was taken by session musician Matt Walst, who became an official member on March 28, 2014.

The band’s first logo appeared in 2003 on the cover of their first self-titled album. It represented simply the band’s name, written in a stylized font commonly used in horror movies titles. In the middle of the wordmark, there was an emblem. It represented a circle with three vertical stripes as if left by claws of a beast. This thrilled twist was a tribute to the traditions of the heavy metal style incorporated in the band’s music in the early period. The band guitarist, Adam Gontier, talking about the meaning of the group’s name, said that it was linked to the sense of urgency and responsibility. It’s about deciding what you could do if you had just three days left to make an important change in your life.

In 2006, with the new album “One-X”, the logo was changed. The emblem circle disappeared and the wordmark got a new font very close to the commercial Crewekerne Magna Expanded Bold with a stronger flavour of magic and romanticism. It was a reflection of a new, more romantic style which dominated in several songs included in the album by Gontier. As he mentioned to a journalist, this album had a more personal meaning to him. He had worked on these songs while being in a rehabilitation centre in which he had been treated for drug addiction.

The Three Days Grace badge, designed in 2017, is based on the previous version, but with all the extra decorations removed. The refined badge features the title case lettering with the name of the band, set in one straight line, and executed in a fancy and unique font with clean full-shape characters, and the sharp sleek bars complemented by delicate sophisticated elements, which look both dramatic and chic.

Font and Color

The unique elegant lettering from the primary logo of the Three Days Grace band is set in a custom ornate typeface with sophisticated details around the bars of the characters. The only font, which resembles the one from this insignia, is, probably, Gatsby SF, but with contours significantly modified.

As for the color palette of the Three Days Gracevisual identity, it is based on plain black, which represents the heavy metal style of the musician collective better than any other shade.
