Three Days Grace is streaming its new album, Transit Of Venus, online in its entirety at IGN.com, just days before it arrives next Tuesday (October 2nd). The first single from the disc, "Chalk Outline," is enjoying its third week atop the Active Rock radio chart, becoming the band's eighth single to go to Number One. Frontman Adam Gontier told us that the band had no idea what to expect when they issued the song: "It was definitely a little bit nerve-wracking, 'cause we were all in agreement that 'Chalk Outline' was gonna be the first single, but at the same time, there were songs on the record that, you know, we could have very easily probably released as the first single. But it represents the record really well, so I think we went with the right song and it's doing well, which we're fortunate for that."
Transit Of Venus is Three Days Grace's fourth studio album and follows up 2009's Life Starts Now.
That disc yielded three chart-toppers, including "Break," "The Good Life" and "World So Cold."
Three Days Grace will play at the Pain In The Grass festival in Seattle on Saturday (September 29th) before launching an 18-date club tour on October 8th in Dallas.
