From a fair news release:
My Darkest Days’ vocalist and rhythm guitarist Matt Walst saw firsthand what it takes to succeed from his older brother, the bassist of Three Days Grace. Chad Kroeger of Nickelback co-produced My Darkest Days’ new album and co-wrote a majority of the songs. The music combines the rowdiness of rock music alongside more personal observations about relationships. “I’m a big fan of Top 40 and dance music as well as hard rock. It’s cool to bring all of those into our songs,” says Walst. Having shared the stage with bands such as Theory of a Deadman, Papa Roach and Three Days Grace, the group has honed their live act and are exciting loyal fans and growing their fan base.
