New York- January 26, 2015 — Canadian rockers Three Days Grace celebrate today that their single ” I Am Machine,” has just topped the Active Rock radio chart at #1.

Comments Neil Sanderson about their new single: “Sonically, we wanted to create a ‘machine-like’ sound in parts of the song. We were inspired by the images from the opening scene of Tim Burton’s ‘Edward Scissorhands’…relentless machines turning and churning, never ceasing to operate. Lyrically the song is about how sometimes you feel like you are in an endless routine and cannot escape. Every day seems the same. No freedom from the vicious cycle that your life can sometimes become…no control, you begin to feel numb to the world around you, as you yearn to just feel anything, any emotion.”
“I Am Machine” is the second single released from their new studio album HUMAN scheduled for release March 31st and was co-written by the band, produced by Gavin Brown and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge.
Three Days Grace re-teamed with producer Gavin Brown on HUMAN, who produced the band’s platinum-selling 2003 self-titled debut album. “We went back to our roots a bit and recaptured that collaborative feeling of being in a band and bringing out the best ideas in each other,” says band member Neil Sanderson. “Gavin was a huge part of that in the beginning and we feel like we’re back in those days where we’re high-fiving each other with guitars in our hands.”
In addition, Nick Raskulinecz and Chris Lorde Alge mixed HUMAN. The band has spent much of the year vigorously touring, writing and recording their new album.
