Three Days Grace Share New Video For The Kenya Project

Three Days Grace and World Vision Canada are celebrating World Humanitarian Day with the release of a new video for the Kenya Project, a MTN Of Hope social justice initiative that was created by the band. The clip offers fans a look at Matt Walst and Neil Sanderson’s 2018 trip to Kenya in which they got a firsthand look at the different things that could be done to help the communities in the area.

Sanderson commented:

“We were inspired everywhere we went and by everyone we met because what we experienced isn’t what we thought it would be. I learned that poverty is not hopelessness. Hope is around every corner; sometimes you just have to look for it.

When you meet communities of families and children who mostly live off $2 a day, but greet you with the biggest smiles and are so full of hope and resilience, it makes you take stock of your life and how lucky we are to be born in Canada. We were given every resource and freedom to create opportunities at making a career as a band. Now we have an opportunity to use our career to build awareness and invite our fans from all over the world to join us at creating change to people that can use a hand up.”

The Kenya Project seeks to protect children from violence and to provide them with clean water. The group previously donated $1 from every ticket sold for their fall 2018 Canadian tour to the initiative.

Underoath, Ex-Flyleaf, Ex-Three Days Grace, Etc. Members To Guest On Breaking Benjamin’s New Acoustic Album

It looks like Breaking Benjamin’s upcoming acoustic album will feature a number of special guests. During an interview with HardDrive Radio, Benjamin Burnley confirmed that the effort will include guest vocals from Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath), Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf), Adam Gontier (ex-Three Days Grace), and Michael Barnes (Red).

Burnley said the following about the acoustic tracks:

“They all have orchestration on ’em — like, full orchestra on ’em. And then there’s four that have guest vocalists that [are] really, really amazing. They did so good. I have Lacey Sturm — she used to be the singer for Flyleaf — she’s doing a song with me called ‘Dear Agony‘… She was great. She nailed it, man. And she’s so fun to work with, too. She just nails it every time. And she’s such an incredible singer. So she did that.

And then Spencer from Underoath did ‘Red Cold River‘. And then Adam Gontier, the original singer for Three Days Grace, he did a song called ‘Dance With The Devil‘ with me. And then Mike, the singer for Red, did ‘Failure‘ with me.”

He also added:

“[They’re] all are friends of mine. So I just was, like, ‘How can we put some more of an original spin on this so it’s not just a remake of things? So that’s what I came up with. And I tried to get a couple of more too, but it was a time thing. These guys, more so than anything, they’re my friends. So that’s what’s cool about it to me — that they’re my friends on a record with me.”
