Saint Asonia, Adam Gontier’s super band after 21 years leading Three Days Grace.
At the end of 2012 and only 2 weeks away from starting the tour with Shinedown and P.O.D. to promote their album “Human“, Adam Gontier leaves Three Days Grace without giving specific reasons.
After Adam’s departure, Mike Mushok, Staind‘s guitarist, was the first to contact him, to give him moral support and sit down to write music as pure entertainment.
Finally in 2015 and almost without wanting it, after showing a demo with the single Better Place, Saint Asonia was born, joining the band Dark New Day, Eye Empire or Seether bass player, Corey Lowery (brother of Clint Lowery, guitarist of Sevendust) and drummer Rich Beddoe, then on Finger Eleven.
May I present to you, one of my favorites bands that have been with me since my senior year until these days, plus today they present their eleventh album, All I See is War… without further ado: Sevendust.
Not many bands can say that they’ve been playing together for 24 years without any changes in the line-up, this means 11 studio albums, 1 acoustic album, Time Travelers and Bonfire, and a live concert that I invite you to check it out, Southside Double-Wide: Acoustic Live.
In addition to this post, I recommend that you listen to parallel projects by members of Sevendust, such as Dark New Day with guitarist Clint Lowery and his bass brother, Corey Lowery. Or Projected, formed by John Connolly and Vinnie Hornsby (Sevendust guitar and bassist, respectively), Scott Phillips (Alter Bridge drummer) and Eric Friedman (Tremonti guitarist).
