Three Days Grace is the self-titled debut studio album by Canadian rock band Three Days Grace. It was released on July 22, 2003 through Jive Records. It was the band's only album as a trio, and also under Bertelsmann Music Group.

Background[edit]

Prior to being named Three Days Grace, the band was known as Groundswell. Three Days Grace garnered the attention of many record labels after the release of their demo, largely due to the song, "I Hate Everything About You". Eventually, Three Days Grace signed with Jive, and began recording their debut album in Massachusetts. The single "I Hate Everything About You" was released in promotion for the album.[4]

The album was met with positive reviews from most music critics. Heather Phares of AllMusic gave the album a positive review, saying, "Although this debut is a little uneven, it's also promising. Three Days Grace are definitely one of the most accessible alt-metal bands of the 2000s; they just need to add some more distinctiveness to their sound."[5] In another positive review, Sputnikmusic said, "this is a very good debut CD from this band, there are very few flaws, and the music is all very good and it's great to listen to. Looking ahead, I see only good things for this band...although, with only one CD under their belts, it's too early to tell."[9] Dave Doray of IGN gave another positive review, saying, "almost every single song from the Three Days Grace track list is heavy and catchy, with chewy chunks of assurance and fury thrown in for added measure."[6]

Accolades[edit]

The album has been certified platinum in Canada[10] and the US.[11]
