After being discovered by Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, Canadian rockers My Darkest Days was destined for greatness. This became quite apparent when, out of thousands of rock songs released every year, the band's debut song, "Porn Star Dancing," made it to Number 1 on the Mainstream Rock chart. Fans who are lucky enough to snag tickets to one of the band's shows are in for an extreme adrenaline-fueled show. Whether fans are looking to crowd surf, jump up to loud, rhythmic music, or just sit back and enjoy the show, My Darkest Days has got it all. In 2012, the band released their sophomore album Sick and Twisted Affair to a No. 9 spot on the US Alternative Albums chart, earning two more hits with the album's title track and its lead single "Casual Sex." Fans who were only able to follow the band via the lead singer's 2013 tour with Three Days Grace will undoubtedly be ecstatic when a third album is released.
Fans love hearing the story of My Darkest Days and how they came to be in the spotlight. The band had a serendipitous rise to fame that stemmed from hard work and good connections. The band won a local rock radio contest in 2008 with their song "Every Lie," which earned them free studio time. This was the only break that the band would ever need since the lead singer's brother, a member of the major rock band Three Days Grace, was friends with Chad Kroeger of Nickelback. Once Kroeger received the demo, it was all uphill from there. The band's very first album, My Darkest Days, rounded out the top nine of the US alternative charts driven by hits such as "Porn Star Dancing" and "Every Lie". When it comes to insane riffs coupled with melodic tunes in a hard rock atmosphere, rock fans give My Darkest Days' concerts a big thumbs-up.
