STAIND, Ex-THREE DAYS GRACE Members Form New Group SAINT ASONIA
May 8, 2015
According to The Pulse Of Radio, SAINT ASONIA is the name of a new rock "supergroup" led by former THREE DAYS GRACE frontman Adam Gontier, with the rest of the group reportedly consisting of STAIND guitarist Mike Mushok, ex-FINGER ELEVEN drummer Rich Beddoe and journeyman bassist Corey Lowery. While that lineup has not been officially confirmed, a 38-second teaser video clearly shows clips of Gontier, Mushok and possibly Beddoe and Lowery.
The teaser video states that "the combined forces behind the group have amassed 25 Top 10 rock singles and 17 Number One hit songs."
The clip also hints at something arriving on May 16, with a debut single likely.
Gontier has kept a low profile since leaving THREE DAYS GRACE in December 2012. The band replaced him with Matt Walst and recently release a new album called "Human".
Mushok's band, STAIND, has not released new music since 2011 and as of last December had no plans to return to the studio. Mushok played briefly in 2013 with ex-METALLICA bassist Jason Newsted in his self-named band.
Beddoe exited FINGER ELEVEN in late 2013. The Canadian act recorded a new album late last year but release details are yet to be announced.
Lowery's resume includes stints with STUCK MOJO, SWITCHED, STEREOMUD, DARK NEW DAY and most recently EYE EMPIRE.
