After a strange teaser video for Three Days Grace’s upcoming album, Transit of Venus, we’re finally getting to hear what they’ve been hyping up. The first single from that record, called “Chalk Outline,” has been released, along with the official lyric video.

 

The song is available for download now with the album hitting stores October 2nd, and “Chalk Outline” is a great preview of what we might expect from the rest of the track listing. It has stayed true to the heavy sound of Three Days Grace, yet feels fresh at the same time.

Drummer Neil Sanderson had this to say about the new album:

We went for a tighter, more articulated sound on this record. The music we were writing was a little more intricate than in the past, and we've been experimenting with new instruments. We wanted to present these new ideas concisely without going over-the-top in ambience and overall production.

What do you think of the song? Does it stay true to Three Days Grace for you?
