"This is a symbol of the passion that went into the making of the album and the bond that we share with our fans. I felt very strongly about the record when it was created and 6 years later, I couldn't be more proud of every note.
I've scribbled down some of my fondest memories from the making of the album here."

"Some of our favorite musical moments have been in very stripped down situations with an acoustic guitar." Says front man Jonny Hetherington. "Hell, that's how most of our songs are written! We are really excited about bringing that intimate feeling to venues across the country this spring. Can't wait to see you!"
Jonny let's us in on what's behind the song 'Raining'.
"I wrote the music and melodies for 'Raining' at my day job in Vancouver... Picture this: Me and my acoustic guitar, hair tied back, wearing semi-acceptable clothes for a retail job balancing on a stack of disassembled shelving units writing for hours..."
To read more about the inspiration behind the song with exclusive photos from the recording, check out Jonny's blog.
In light of the recent news from Adam Gontier and Three Days Grace, I'd like to dedicate the official lyric video of "Raining" to Adam, Brad, Neil, Barry and all of the Three Days Grace fans around the world.
You created powerful music that inspired us in so many ways. Wishing you the best on all of your musical paths and life journeys.
I recently brought a piano into my life and it's bringing new musical expressions to the surface. After last weeks's tragedy I find the words to "Sorry" have taken on a new meaning. Life is so precious. I'd like to dedicate this piano version of "Sorry" to the victims and their families.
This is my first piano post ever, a solo version of "Sorry" at home in my studio. If you believe it's important to say you're sorry to the one's you love, especially at this time of year, share this emotional version of the song.
