Three Days Grace asked fans this summer to create a music video for the Canadian act’s latest single, “Misery Loves My Company.” Fans were provided materials to use and asked to submit original videos — although images of the group members themselves were not allowed to appear in the clip. Now Three Days Grace has chosen a winner out of more than 50 submissions and posted the eerie animated clip online.
As for the song itself, drummer Neil Sanderson told us what it’s about: “That’s song’s kind of just, it’s sort of tongue in cheek, like ‘Hey, don’t worry about me, you know, you don’t have to feel sorry for me ’cause I’m fine.’ We’ve always kind of just written about real experiences in our lives. I think that’s one of the biggest things with just our connection to fans is that fans realize that it comes from a real place and we’re kind of just regular guys that write about real things that everybody goes through and I think that there’s a real tangible connection there.”
“Misery Loves My Company” is Number Four on the Active Rock chart.
The song is taken from Three Days Grace’s fourth album, Transit Of Venus, which was released last fall.
The disc was the last to feature original frontman Adam Gontier, who left the group late last year. His replacement is Matt Walst, brother of Three Days Grace bassist Brad Walst and also singer forMy Darkest Days.
Three Days Grace has been on the road steadily since earlier this year and next plays Bloomburg, Pennsylvania on September 24th.
