My Darkest Days - United States
OverviewMy Darkest Days is a new rock group based out of Toronto. The trio originally hails from the small town of Norwood Ontario. This small town atmosphere did not offer a lot of activities for young kids, so the band members have made music a part of their lives from a very early age. Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Matt Walst has had music in his family all his life. In fact he co-wrote on his older brother’s, Brad Walst, first album for Three Days Grace. Now joined by childhood friends Brendan Mc Millan (Bass) and Doug Oliver (Drums),and with the addition Toronto rocker Sal Costa(Guitar), My Darkest Days is ready to come to the mainstream.
My Darkest Days use high energy rock and roll, coupled with beautiful ballads to explore the feelings that burn inside all of us. With catchy melodies and lyrics to back them up My Darkest Days is slowly becoming a fan favorite. An energy filled live show combined with an energetic crowd make the band an unforgettable live experience.
The band has played with the likes of Three Days Grace, Theory of a Deadman, Marianas Trench, Faber Drive, and Ill Scarlet, to name a few. They also placed third in the 97.7 Rock Search in 2006, and won Bandwarz in 2007. Bandwarz was a great experience for the band. The prizes, which included gear, clothing, a photo shoot and of course cold hard cash, proved to be very helpful in the bands progress in the last year.
Fans can also tune in to the Wolf 101.5 based out of Peterborough Ontario to hear their songs “Save Me”, and more recently “Every Lie”. Listeners can call in to request either song as well. It seems that things will only get better for MDD in 2010
