Ex-THREE DAYS GRACE singer Adam Gontier and two members of the band’s current lineup, bassist Brad Walst and his younger brother, vocalist Matt Walst, were inducted into the Norwood District High School Hall Of Honor last night (Wednesday, June 29) in Norwood, Ontario, Canada.

Earlier today, Gontier took to his Instagram to share a photo and video of the ceremony, and he wrote in an accompanying caption: “About last night… thank you so much to Todd MurrayJason Lean and everyone at Norwood District High School for inducting myself, Brad and @mattjpwalst thanks into their Hall of Honor. And a HUGE congrats to all of the 2022 NDHS graduates.”

In a 2007 interview with The OklahomanGontier said that he met some of his first bandmates while they were freshmen at Norwood District High School.

“I ended up hooking up with Brad because we had the same love of music,” Gontier said. “He didn’t play anything at the time. I suggested him getting a bass, and he did.”

Gontier initially went into rehab in 2005 in Toronto after admitting an addiction to Oxycontin. The rehab stint influenced some material which would appear on THREE DAYS GRACE‘s “One-X” album, including the songs “Pain” and “Over And Over”.

Gontier left THREE DAYS GRACE in the spring of 2013. At the time, the Canadian rockers cited unspecified “health issues” when his departure was announced. Adam later released a statement explaining he exited THREE DAYS GRACE to pursue new projects, and not to deal with addiction.

THREE DAYS GRACE‘s latest album, “Explosions”, was released on May 6 via RCA Records. The LP’s first single, “So Called Life”, was No. 1 on Mediabase‘s Active Rock chart and Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Songs chart. This was the band’s 17th No. 1 song on the Mediabase chart and 16th No. 1 on the Billboard chart, and tied the internationally acclaimed and multi-platinum certified Canadian band with SHINEDOWN for the artist with most #1’s on the Billboard chart.
